My BB Guy and I had to take some clothes to a laundromat recently when we had a broken pipe in our home. Click here to read that fun story.
We have not been in one for about 40 years. We are not experienced in the ways of the “mat”.
Oh wait. We give each other a puzzling glance. We should have brought soap. And fabric softener. Rookie mistake. So much for trying to look like you know what you are doing. Fortunately they sell soap there.
Load up two machines and head off to a nearby pub for some lunch. Over a nice cold beer we discuss the fact that the person working at the laundromat was folding up clothes out of one of the dryers.
WAIT A MINUTE HERE…. IT PROBABLY WASN’T HER CLOTHES…..DOES THIS MEAN WHAT I THINK IT DOES? DO THEY DO YOUR LAUNDRY FOR YOU? HALLELUJAH.
We looked up the phone number and call to ask if that is indeed true. It is! It is! While we sat our lazy butts down eating lunch and having a cold one this lovely woman would put our clothes into the dryer when they were done washing.
And the high cost of this service? $5.00. Seriously. I am thinking of going back every week to drop off my laundry. Who knew? We tipped her another $5.00 on top of that and felt like we got such a deal.
