    Yesterday I dropped off my laundry at the local laundromat to get done. They said it would be done today, so I go pick it up and I've got 2 ruined white polo shirts and a pair of jeans stained from a pen in a pocket. I just let it go, said no big deal, and took my clothes and went forward with my day. I was almost uncomfortable at their level of apology, and of course I coulda been a prick and raised hell, but I didn't.

    Would you have raised hell? I mean, the way i though about it was it was kind of my fault too.. I don't know.

    I would have asked them to comp me for the ruined clothes if they were responsible.

    Check your pockets, or ask mommy to do it.
    You are a grown man, right?

    Why are they washing your white shirts with your jeans?

    Yea, but I pay them to wash dry and fold my laundry... I would think checking a pocket was part of it? I don't know

    I would have driven to the nearest gas station, bought 5 gallons of gas, gone back to the laundry, and chained their doors shut locked.

    Then I'd pour the gas all over my clothes, start shoving them into an open window, while lighting them on fire, screaming 'You fucking ruined my fucking clothes, you fucking goddamn Ching-Chongs, now you are going to burn in hell!!!', as I then proceed to throw the remaining gasoline inside the burning window.


    That is what I'd do. :smile:

    Kinda your fault too, yea.
    BUT I bet if you'd have left a $20 in a pocket they'd have found that.

    No you wouldn't have. You would have used a typewriter to express your thoughts, then mailed it to them.:brules:

    Once the conversation dissolves into screaming 'Ching Chong' at them, then they know it's for reals.
