Boy, do I have some Tales to Tell...

Does anyone else out there have the following problem? First, some background. My building has a laundry room in the basement. All week long, access to the basement area is only between 9:00am and 11:00pm. Our co-op has decided on these hours for safety reasons. Which I agree with. But, back to the problem at hand: since we don't get access to the laundry room until 9:00am, some of us that get up early have to wait for the super to open it up. On some days, at 9:00am, there is a rush for laundry machines.

Here is my question: what is the etiquette when it comes to a shared laundry room? Is it rude for someone to take up all the washers (5 double loaders, 1 triple loader) and not offer another person a chance to do their laundry? And, if it is known that there tends to be quite a few people using the machines during the 9:00am-rush, don't you stagger your loads? Must you take up all 6 machines?

Also, when it comes to the dryers, if you have taken all five dryers, shouldn't it be common courtesy to make sure you are there to empty them out when they are done? Especially if you know that there are people waiting to use them? And, if said people waiting decide to take your dry laundry out, should you really have an attitude about it? Should you risk being shanked in the laundry room by an irate Filipino Queen?

Just wondering. Later.

I have to admit, I'm guilty of taking up all the machines, but I personally don't see a problem with that because the way I sort my laundry, doing it all at the same time is really the only way. But i will make an effort to do laundry at non-peak times.

However, I do agree with you that you should not leave your clothes in the dryer. That's so annoying and rude.

Luckily my building has like 50 machines or something and our laundry room is open 24 hours. So you'll see me doing laundry at 2 in the morning. lol.
 
We had a saying in the South about those kind of people: They ain't got no home trainin'.
 
I want to see the angry Filipino Queen in action!!!

Do it! Shank 'em!
 
I think the solution is never to wash your clothes.
