Twice this trip, my DW went to go do laundry in BLT, put her stuff in and set it all up, stepped out for less than 2 minutes to take my DD2.5 to the bathroom to come back and find our laundry pulled out of the washers and thrown in the corner.

I know she should not technically leave the stuff unattended and before someone says rent a 1BR, yeah I would if we could.

But come on! Two minutes? And this was in the middle of the cycle, not stopped or finished and we were not even using all of the machines. The others were in use by other people. It was almost like they were waiting for you to leave to do it...and then they do not even have the B***S to stick around themselves.

I would never touch someone's stuff even if it was sitting there finished and in the machine without them there to remove it. But what these people did was just uncalled for. It was not even like we could complain, we didn't know who it was who did it - hence this rant.

Anyone have thoughts either way? Would love to hear some input.

Thanks.
If I had done that last month at BCV I would have been waiting over an hour for the person to come back and remove her washing. As it was I waited 10 minutes after the washing had finished then removed it myself (I did not like doing this) and placed it on the table. My washing was in the dryer by the time the person came back, she complained because someone had 'dumped' her washing and not folded it There was only washer working so it was very selfish of her I thought.

Should I have folded her washing though? I don't like to touch other peoples things.

10 min courtesy after the cycle is complete then I'm pulling it out if I need it. DH watches the kids and I stay in the laundry room. I did this in college too. At HHI I folded someones towels and when I left so were the towels.

OP - WOW, and I thought my miserable BCV laundry experience this summer was bad! I can't fathom taking someone's stuff out mid-cycle. Only one of the two washers was operational at BCV and people were lined-up, staking it out all day, every day. I went back multiple times a day to see if I could get a load in to no avail - finally complained at the front desk and got a roll of quarters to use the BC pay machines... half of which were broken, too. Loved our BCV stay; hated the laundry experience.

We used w/d at BLT for 3 loads last week, and all was fine. They got lots of use, sometimes we had to wait, but never were clothes left at the end of a cycle.

From what I have gathered, the 10 min thing is the norm and I would have understood if that had happened, but in this case the load wasn't even done and the person took the clothes out still full of soap.

Apparently he/she was in a rush and my DW was just the unlucky recipient of his/her impatience.

And no...you should not have had to fold anything that wasn't yours.

Yeah it was weird, but we are past it now. Hopefully it won't ever happen again that way.

so sorry this happened to you - seriously if it ever happens again - talk to security - this person needs a lesson in manners.

BLT laundry room

Can someone tell me what the laundry room is like? How much are the machines and how many are there? Is it open 24hrs? Going soon and would like to know in advance. Thanks!

There are 3 washing machines and 6 dryers. It is open 24 hrs but you always need your room key to gain access to the room.

I was in there at least 4 times last week and never once needed my key. I wish I had, I don't like it left open, but it was. Never had a problem getting a washer or dryer but it must be crazy at busier times.

I looked into the laundry room last week, and the dryer that wasn't working in March (!) was out of order again!

Aren't the machines front loaders? We're always in a 1-2 b/r but I've stuck my head into some of the laundry rooms including BWV last week and saw front loaders. If so, wait til the cycle is to the point of locking the machine and there shouldn't be a problem. (???)
