One of the washing machines in our laundry room is broken.
Normally we have to insert two dollars in the form of quarters to start the washer. (It's a little on the pricey side, no?) However, the machine on the right has decided that it is permanently full of quarters.
The "coins to start" countdown reads zero, and adding coins to the machine has no effect. Rather, the washer is just ready and rarin' to go, all the time.
Sure, we could choose to use the correctly-functioning machine, which we do if we have two enormous loads that cannot both be crammed into the single free washer. Still, I have no problem with doing laundry more often if it means fitting everything into the friendly, loveable machine that no longer enjoys eating money.
Come on. Free laundry. It's like a dream come true.
And after all? We're not complete larcenists.
We still have to pay for the dryer.
