I just need to vent a little.I really miss having my washer and dryer! I do. I make no bones about it – I do not like going to the laundromat. Never have and never will. Its always hot and just yucky. You have no idea what someone else has put in the washers.
Not only that, but our campground lets others who are NOT staying here come onto the property and use the laundromat. They take over on the weekends and its hard for us to get a washer and dryer. I understand why they do it. The price for wash and dry is a little better here than it is at the local laundromat down the road. Plus, they can pay the campground $5 per person to swim in the pool. They like to let their kids swim while washing their laundry. Its a great idea! Except it intrudes on our oasis here at the campground. We went to the pool yesterday and there was about 10 kids and 6 adults swimming that do not live here. I wouldnt even get it. I told hubby it made me think it was human soup! I really do wish they would not let others pay to use the pool, but they are making a little $$, so I understand.
Honestly, they probably need to make it where they can since there are a lot of vacancy here right now. There was a lot of vacancy during the busy season too. They are not marketing this place right and their rates are a little high. Needless to say – its being mismanaged here. I was also told that anytime someone complains to the owner (who I have never seen), they are quickly and quietly evicted. This comes from an employee who we have befriended. Didnt like the person at first – but they have warmed up to us. lol
Boy did I get off on a tangent. So back to the laundry. I’m kinda peeved. When I go to do laundry, I look in the washer and make sure there is nothing in them. If it looks like there is something in them, like dirt, I will take a napkin and wipe it out. A few days ago, when I was there, I didnt see anything in the washers. I put my clothes in, put in my liquid detergent, set it and pushed my quarters in and let it do its job. After the washer stops, the next logical thing is to put everything in the dryer. There are a few clothes that I do not dry. I hang them outside and let the sun and wind dry then naturally. Everything looked good – or so I thought. I got my clothes back to my condo and hung them up outside. Thats when I noticed that one of my nightgowns had caked on washing powder all on it.
Ugh! This is NOT the first time. It seems like it is almost every time I wash this happens. Never the white clothes – just the colored!! Needless to say, I brought the nightgown inside and washed it out. But there was no indication of powder being in the bottom of the washer. If there is any suggestions on this issue, I welcome them!!
Well, hubby is working today and son and I need to find something to do! Working almost open to close with only one day off SUCKS for my hubby. He technically has 20 more days until he starts the other job, as long as he passes the drug test and then physical. Shouldnt be an issue though!! There is still one other place that is in the works. They sent him an email wanting to do a background check. Then they should set up an interview, etc. Either place would be awesome to work. Ok, I am off of here and need to find a way to entertain my entertainer today. Have a great day and thanks for reading.
