I gotta say that I disagree wholehearted;y with that idea. I would never in a million years even think of doing that. My use of one washer for one load does not give me rights to that washer. It gave me that one use. If there's a line to use washers, I get to get back into that line. It would never even occur to me that the washer was still mine. Never will, either.
But then, I wouldn't have left the area to begin with.
That's the situation I was referring to. I was on the Fantasy and needed to wash. The room only had a couple of washers and one was due to be finished in 20 minutes. We decided to hang around and wait. The machine
Finished the load and about 10 minutes later the person showed up to retrieve her clothes and the proceeded to use the washer again. I said something about needing to wait in line again because by that time a couple more people showed up. She said it was hers to use as many times as she wished. I didn't think so. Very frustrating.
She said she wasn't staying with her laundry because it was her vacation and I reminded her that it was also mine .
