a lot of things do take place in a laundromat.
except, that's only on
tv. from tv, you'd think that laundromats are the perfect place to hang out, to
take a date, to meet women, etcetera. these
happen in real life.
are the real life events that happened to me in a laundromat so far:
when i was about five, my brother and i discovered that you could get "free"
soda from the machine by reaching up and pulling a can out. our mother explained
that there is a difference between "free" and "stealing."
a couple of months ago, someone's clothes caught fire in a dryer and the place
was full of smoke. while we waited outside the door, several people came and started
their wash. if i came to the laundromat and saw it was on fire, i would go elsewhere.
that goes for any business.
like i did when i as young, my children hate going.
