We had a minor argument an hour ago, about laundry of all things, with my roommate.
It seems like every time I need to do laundry, she has a load going in the washer, so today I asked if she could deliver me my clothes in an afternoon or two when she wasn’t doing laundry, which didn’t go over too well.
The thing is, every time I go to do laundry, there is already a load of hers going. Despite my best efforts, I can only manage to do laundry once a week. My main job as a heating, ventilation, and air conditioning technician keeps me busy most of the time, so it would be great if I could also use that time to do laundry. While in the grand scheme of things, this is hardly significant, my friend and I are currently scrambling to find a solution so that I can get dressed in clean clothes. If it comes to it, I can do my laundry at the HVAC supplier where I work because we have a washer and dryer in the back. People will probably think I’m stupid, but that’s nothing new. A lot of people must have gotten a kick out of me when I was driving around in my old car without air conditioning and holding the big cardboard sunshade out the window and having it scoop in the air as I drove. An excellent thing is a home-made air conditioner. Ultimately, finding a solution to the laundry predicament may seem trivial, but it is nonetheless important for my friend and me to ensure that I have access to clean clothes, even if it means resorting to doing laundry at my workplace.
