Spinning Stories

Overheard laundry talk by cqualmann

I went for a beer in the american bar on Broadway Market last night, and overheard people at the next table talking about their laundry woes.

They were a group of 5 or 6 men and women who obviously shared a flat, or at least used to. They were talking about how the girls would use the washing machine in the flat, and hang their washing all over the place to dry – but that it took days – especially in the winter – and that the flat was damp so that made it even worse. Because of this there was never any room, so the two men would always go to the launderette instead – even though they had the machine as then it was “just over and done with – you do the washing, it’s dry, done, put it away”.

One of the men then went on to say that in his new flat he’d just discovered (after a few uses) that the washing machine is actually a washer-dryer combined, but that things seem to dry much quicker in the new place – it’s sunnier.
