I have not been in a laundromat since 1984. Back then it was 10 cents for 10 minutes in the dryer and 3 quarters for the washer.
I wash Shocked! I say! I say! I wash SHOCKED! when I saw the requirement for washing my bed linens was SIXTEEN Quarters... that is FOUR DOLLARS! American . Per Load.
Plus I was embarrassed because I had to stop and read how to use, which machine, there were tiny ones for 2.50, very small loads, and giant ones for 5.00 for very LARGE loads, and they did not have cute little trays to lay the quarters in like they did 35 years ago.
In other words, I was a rookie! I felt like the other people were staring at me while I wandered reading instructions.
They had Lots of seating, but I did not need it, which made me sad, because I already knew how to use those. I took 98 photos in the 30 minutes it took to wash the sheets. Yes! you will see a lot of them soon. I walked around the block, I took pics looking out windows and in windows and across the street. I stayed close because I only have 2 sets of king sheets and I was afraid someone would steal them if I did not keep watch.
The Good news was, I had a dryer at home and did not have to figure out how to use the dryer, and I can't believe I forgot to check how much the dryers cost.
The thing is, the dryer at home was NEW, never used. I had to get the book out to turn it on.... it was not FREE trust me.
I chose number 17, for a simple reason, Ann of SnapEditScrap, the nook it resided in had Fantastic Fodder for blog post, I could Snap while I watched/waited.
Don't fret, more is coming soon to a blog near you.
