I sympathize because I would hate to come back and find my entire wash in the dryer since I have lots of clothes I prefer to line dry. Usually, my DH would do the laundry and he would take a newspaper and sit with the machine(s) until the loads were done. If I had to leave the laundry room I would leave my basket on top of the washer I was using and hope people would just dump my wet clothes into the basket and leave it till I came back. But no question, it is annoying, to come in with dirty laundry and find machines "taken" but the wash finished and no owner around. Nowadays, I am thrilled to say, our new-to-us coach that has a washer/dryer combo in it. It is great!

Well the load they put in the dryer had my dark dress shirts that can't be dried and the person before had not cleaned out the dryer of lint so all my nice dress shirts got thrown in and nothing would get all the lint out without rewashing.


When I say I was not there when it stopped I had two going and one stopped before the other. the other was just finishing as I walked in. I understand people are in a hurry but having a little sense to wait a few minutes and fill the empty washer first would have been polite. There is no way in hell I would touch someone elses wash no matter what. Laundry isn't that big of rush that I would feel the need to touch someone elses whatever.

We have only used the CG washing/dryer machines a few times, as we would rather not use washing machines that others are using, and only do so on long trips. The times we did were in high end CG's and super nice facilities. We always stay with our clothes, not because we think someone is going to mess with them, but as a matter of respect. We have seen many times washers full of wet clothes and nobody around. Do that in a park where the homeless walk thru and you might end up missing some of your clothes altogether.

Alot of people say they will be right back, but forget or whatever, leaving their clothes in the washer for an extended amount of time, while others are waiting. Chances are when they walked in they had no idea how long your washer had been done, or how long until you would be back. You should be glad they just didn't toss them on the table or in a chair.

There's alot of people out there who think the world revolves around them, and are inconsiderate of others time or needs. I'm not saying you are one of those type people becuase at least you asked, but I don't really think you got the answer you were looking for. I bet next time you wait with your wash.

IF the laundry room posts the times on washing and drying times I see no need to stand around to wait. Common sense dictates you do not touch other peoples posessions.
In the same context if you are not back to remove clothes when done you can expect others to be upset.
Consideration to others should always be the normal.

Not easy to have it ones own way in such a situation.

If you have something to eat at a restaurant, by yourself, and leave to go to the bathroom without letting the waiter know, you might find your table cleared by the time you return and I bet the waiter didn't even touch your food.

Can't expect people to follow your standards and rules, that includes generally accepted group rules even when most people agree that is the unwritten, considerate, way to do it.

Problems with dogs, early departures, etc.

But trying to think first of those around you probably works in your favor long run, even if you overdo it.

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).

Concur!

You took a chance and lost.

This is a good testimony to having a W/D in the RV.

I'm sure after reading the 25+ opinions (re: Laundry Room Thoughts), you have a pretty good idea of how the majority feels about the subject.

Now that you have been made aware of the right thing to do, it is it's up to you what kind of "public laundry room user" you will be.

If you don't want your clothing handled by others then don't leave it to them to deal with it. Every cellphone has unlimited alarms so being late is just lack of concern on the part of the person who is late (assuming no emergency)

I'm not thrilled with using public laundries but we have to while traveling. We are diligent about returning if we need to do something, if not we just stay with them and get in some reading.

If someone else has to move my laundry I just remind myself I am the one at fault, not them. They were polite enough to put it in a dyer for you. Don't expect everyone to treat your laundry as politely the next time.

And listening to somebody's excuses regarding why they weren't there when the machine shut off doesn't help a thing. Save 'em....
