It’s the little things…college orientation & robo-laundry

Had college orientation with Princess last week, and it’s always the little things that get me. So, the person describing how the student ID/cash card works says that you pay for laundry/washers & dryers with it, and then the APP SENDS YOU A NOTIFICATION WHEN YOUR WASHER OR DRYER IS DONE.

Every woman in the room said OOOOHHHHHH. The men probably didn’t say it because the guys in my dorm never cared if their clothes were a wadded-up ball of wrinkles when they finally came back for them and somebody had pulled them out of a washer and shoved them on a table, but the girls? We cared!!

Also, I cannot count the number of guys who asked me how to use a washing machine. Being only 17, and already defiant in my feminist tendencies, I usually said, “What? The uterus is a washing machine manual?” About a year later I realized that at least a few of them were actually trying to flirt with me… LOL.

But PUSH NOTIFICATIONS when your washer is done. That is some serious awesome right there. Going into marathon writing week, so I’ll be around some but not much. Have a lovely week!

      Yes! clothes go in the dryer and dry. It’s like an electric version of a clothes line. 🙂 When I lived in the Philippines, we only used an outdoors clothes line to dry our clothes.
