Today, I did laundry in my apartment complex's laundry room. I put my stuff in the dryer and returned to my room. The sign on the door says the laundry room closes at 10 pm, but that's rarely true. Tonight it was. I have to wait until 8 am. I work at 7:30. My work clothes are in there. FML

1. You don't leave your laundry, people can take it. 2. It says that it closes at 10. 3. YDI

If it is a uniform, sometimes they only give you one.. op deserves it for assuming the laundry room would stay open, but he doesn't deserve all of the insults you're throwing at him....

Sucks to be you. Maybe know when the laundry room closes next time. FYL, but YDI too. P.s. first

YDI. rules are rules

1. You don't leave your laundry, people can take it. 2. It says that it closes at 10. 3. YDI

those arent 3 reasons unless you're just saying YDI out of the blue

On one hand, YDI for not thinking ahead. You should have realized that just because the laundry room doesn't always close at the posted time doesn't mean it can't or won't close at that time. On the other hand, if you're always busy and late nights are the only time you have to do your laundry...well, it doesn't totally mitigate the YDI, but it's still a bit FYL-ish.

Call in sick... Maybe you shouldnt wait until ALL of you clothes are dirty before washing. I hope you are fired

I think that's a little too extreme. The OP doesn't deserve to be fired for keeping his work attire clean. Plus he never stated he was doing ALL his laundry, it could just be that he was only washing his work clothes..

UMMM ok, well let me rephrase that. Dont wait until all of your WORK clothes are dirty before you decide to wash them you lazy fuck

Maybe it's a uniform and OP only has one or two sets?

And you shouldn't jump to conclusions, Donkey. If you read the post, OP never said he held off washing his clothes until the last minute; he probably had a free evening and decided to wash his clothes because he had the time. Yes, he should not have assumed the facility would remain open, but no need to insult him without any proof.

So we shouldt assume that he waited till the last minute even though he stated that he has no clothes for work (because they are all in the laundry). And he didnt start washing until the laundry room was about to close? Hmm to me it is common sense.. Oh well

I've got to go with Donkey on this one. All of his work clothes in the wash when the laundry room closes the night before he has to work early? Sounds like procrastination to me...

ADORABLE Puppy, Donkey! :D

Why do people write a FML when it's obvious it's their own fault? Don't think signs apply to you?

Always buy at least two sets of work cloths...

#5 - I was thinking the exact same thing. This thread needs Advice Dog badly.

buy some clothes you scruff

you cant just BUY clothes for a perticular place. his WORK clothes were in there, maybe we works in a shop with perticular uniforms.

call in sick or call and say you will be running late. no biggie

Depending on where he works, some jobs will fire you for coming in late, even if you call (example: my dads job )

How ridiculous for the laundry room to close overnight! I'd suggest starting a tenant petition to keep it open 24 hours.

And you're an idiot. Every apartment complex I've ever lived in had the exact same rules - 8am to 10pm. They lock it at night so people can't fuck around or break shit while management isn't there. A few years before I moved into my current apartment some asshole flooded the laundry room in the middle of the night just for kicks. Rules are there for a reason.

what, you don't condone changing a system that works to satisfy the occasional whims of a few?
