View Full Version : Dieter does laundry---What a scream
So there I am, the top off of an 18lb. Unimac pulling out the mixing valves. In walks this industrial type, you know like Mike Meyers on SNL. He has a crew cut, black horn rimmed glasses, black t-shirt. A thick ja wohl German accent. He hauls in 3 or 4 baskets and starts stuffing them into the dryers, right off the bat. By now I'm just a bit curious, so I stop what I'm doing, so that I can watch what he's doing. Sure enough, in goes the first quarter, lol. Well I can hardly contain myself but i mange to get through it. I tap him on the shoulder and say "this whole wash thing works alot better if you wash the clothes first in the washing machines over there" So he turns to look and with a beat red face says "oh ja sorry, first time". LMFAO! God I love this business.
Happens all the time! Sometimes people with broken dryers at home bring their wet stuff, so you never know if they are just drying, or totally clueless. Watch for the soap. If they brought it, they are likely to pour it into the dryers, which makes a mess!

I see alot of crazy things like that, Iv'e had a few customers take there cloths out of a top loader and throw them into a front loader thinking it's a dryer. Another guy had a roll of Bounty paper towlels was throwing them into the dryer thinking they were dryer sheets.

I like the operator that called after he put a new coin acceptor in and complained that it didn't start the machine. So to try to understand what was happening I went through each step.
"First, you put the six quarters in, right?"
There was a long pause. And he said, "I have to put the money in to make it work?"
DUH!! And that was an OPERATOR!!
So it isn't just your customers that get a brain cramp!
