Talking Dictionary251. Wash, Dry, And Forget


251. He was in the laundry room of the apartment building. A female worker was mopping the floor. He said, "I can't believe how empty the laundry room is. I was able to wash six loads at once." She said, "Yes, almost all the washers are empty. And nobody left any clothes in the dryers overnight." He asked, "People do that?" She said, "All the time. When we find abandoned clothes, we put them on the shelf over there. We let them sit there for a week. If nobody claims them, we throw them out." He asked, "How often does that happen?" She said, "Almost every week. It's hard to believe, isn't it? How can someone forget their clothes?" He said, "Especially just‐washed clothes. Do you ever see clothes worth keeping?" She said, "Not yet. But if I do, I'll take them home. That'll be a small bonus for working here." 2.4
