Why did you wash it without his permission? That's kind of an automatic YDI right there, even though you were trying to be helpful.
who says it was without permission? When you've lost someone close it's normal to ask a friend to do some errands for you until you get yourself together. That's probably that the OP was doing, especially since she's his roommate and they're already living at the same place.
How can you not see that cleaning someone elses cloths is a helpful favor?!? Who gives 'permission' to have cloths cleaned?!?! Do you give your mom 'permission' to clean each item of your cloths, week after week?!?!? Actually, there's not enuff info to vote on this one. If the special shirt was in a pile of dirty cloths, it's on him. If OP picked it up from it's own location, then it's on her - and it would be a FHL 'cause she feels sooo bad (I'm detecting that many of you can't grasp that concept).
#44... it's not necessarily a "favor." I HATE it when other people wash my clothes, and not taking good care of my clothes is just one reason why. They use the wrong detergent, they add fabric softener, they don't care if they drop the clean clothes on the floor in between the washer and dryer, they add dryer sheets, or THEY PUT CLOTHING IN THE DRYER THAT DOESN'T BELONG IN THE DRYER, like the OP did. It's possible that the friend gave the OP standing permission to wash his clothes in this case, but you can't say "it's a favor, you don't need permission" because that's just not true.
