The Question Club
So, here's the question....
You live in a building that has ten living units in it. You all have to share one washer and one dryer. One afternoon you go to do laundry. The washer is empty, but the dryer is running. You figure the person will be coming back for their stuff soon, and lament the fact that they're not there watching their laundry, because that is what is recommended, and you always stay yourself in case other people come around so you can let them know how long you will be.
You toss your stuff in the washer. The washer usually runs about 30-40 minutes or so. Ten minutes after you start the washer, the dryer stops, but no one comes to collect their clothes. 30 minutes later, your load of clothes in the washer is done too, and no one has come yet for their clothes in the dryer, which, upon inspection, are completely dry.
What do you do? (see question 1 of poll below)
Say you pick one of the three first options of the poll, and remove their clothes to use the dryer yourself. You finish drying your clothes (takes about an hour or so). The person still hasn't arrived for their clothes.... what then? (question 2 of poll)
One: When encountering a stopped full dryer and no person there to claim the clothes, you...
Take their stuff out and place it somewhere clean and safe.
Fold their clothes and place them somewhere clean and safe.
Toss them out onto the floor, it's their fault they didn't come get them.
Leave them in the dryer and wait for them to arrive, or take them home and hang them up to dry.
Two: Upon finishing drying your clothes, you...
Leave their clothes out somewhere, they are their problem.
I folded them nicely, so I'll leave them out.
Toss them back in the dryer, so they'll be none the wiser that I was there.
