I will need a million quarters.

The hotel laundry room is an interesting place. There’s rarely anyone in there, except for the occasional soda machine or garbage can visitor. It could be partly because it costs $2 in quarters to wash and $2 in quarters to dry a load. Now for that $2 you get 45 minutes of dryer time but if you set the temperature too low and the clothes aren’t done, there’s no “five extra minutes for a quarter” option. So you’d better plan well to get those clothes dry or you have to hang them all over your room. Yes, I’ve learned that lesson the hard way.
Our room is pretty small anyway so when Brian came home from work and had to wade through a jungle of shirts, bras, blouses and dress pants hanging in the doorways, he thought he had entered some Moroccon den.
Yesterday there were two repairmen working on the two broken dryers. There are only four dryers total so that’s a 50% failure rate in the dryer department.
I heard the repairman say to the other one that the two newer dryers get used the most that causes an extra build up of moisture (and other technical jargon) in the older dryers. If they would get used more evenly it would help a lot.
So, being helpful and full of bright ideas, (not nosey as Brian likes to point out) I told the repairmen that if management would drop the price of using the old dryers, then more people WOULD use them!  VOILA, problem solved!! I’m so helpful around here, they should give me a discount!
