Am I wrong for being upset? Its not like I left and didn't come back or was way past after it had stopped. I am considering making a sign for when I am doing laundry stating not to touch.
Any thoughts would be great.....thank you!

When using any public laundry facilitates if you put clothes in either a washer or a dryer and LEAVE, (aka: don't "babysit" your clothes), you "pays your money and takes your chances".
BTW, when I read your post to my wife, (who does the wash), she said what sounded a lot like "ship happens".

X-2 if it's finish you better be there.

I am with the majority. While you were going to be back shortly to move your clothes you are the only one who is aware of it.

If I am not back I would expect my clothes to be moved. Would I like it NO, but I would stay with the washer or ensure I was back well before the machine was done. No excuses.

For that reason we have the washer/dryer in our MH.

How often do you need to wash clothes? We do it every 2-3 weeks and spend a total of 1.5 hours there. Nothing that important that you have to leave. Stay with c!others.

In the context of a campground laundry, based on what I understand of your scenario, I wouldn't hesitate to move somebody's clothes ... thinking that I was just helping them out. It's likely somebody whom I've already run into in the CG and exchanged "Hellos" with.

In the context of a city laundromat, I WOULD NOT attempt to move somebody else's clothes from washer to dryer. I may not be happy to have to wait for a machine to empty, but would consider waiting preferable to angering somebody with whom I did not have any common connection or knowledge of their demeanor.

Nothing worse than someone who doesn't tend to their wash. You gotta get back to the washer BEFORE it stops, not after. It's only common courtesy.

That's why we carry our washer/dryer with us.

Put yourself in the other person's shoes - you lug your load of laundry into the laundry room and see all the washers filled, but 2 of them have finished, and nobody is around. Has the owner of those washed clothes just stepped out to the restroom, or did they leave 20 minutes ago? Will they be back in 30 seconds or 30 minutes? You have no way of knowing, so you either sit around waiting for who knows how long, or you move their clothes out so you can use the machine.

That is equally true of campground laundry areas.

Agreed!
Anyone with common sense knows that it's inconsiderate and rude to leave clothes unattended.
Anyone that does deserves to have their clothes touched, or moved, or dumped on the floor, (depending upon the mood of the person waiting to use the machine).

I leave my laundry basket so they can put them in it if I am late getting back. Why is anyone TOUCHING your clothes so bad that you rewash. The dryer would kill any germs.
