The Question Club
Last night I was doing laundry in my dorm, and since its a smaller dorm building, the laundry room isn't terribly big(7 washers, 7 dryers, 4 of these dryers are so small they are about worthless for a normal size load), and I was waiting for some stuff to get done in a dryer. A person came up asking if the stuff sitting in one of the dryers, completely done, was mine(It wasn't), because every other dryer was occupied(even the little crappy ones, although some of those had stopped by then),and I told him he should go ahead and move it, it had been sitting there for a while. Then we got to talking about how much it irritated us that people don't clear their stuff out right when its done. I told the guy that I usually give the person 10 minutes to claim their stuff, after that I'm moving it, and he was like "Screw that. If its done, its going out." So I thought I'd see what you all think-|
1)How long do you think is a reasonable amount of time to wait for someone to come claim their laundry from a stopped washer or dryer before you take their stuff out and put your stuff in?
2)Have you ever had anyone get pissed off at you for moving their stuff because they took forever to come back and take it out?
3)Do you think it is rude when people don't come get their laundry out of a washer/dryer on time?
