Q:While staying at a family resort in Florida, I used the laundry facilities. Some guests had left their clothes in the washers after the cycles were finished, and I ended up removing two wash loads and placing them on a table. When the owner of the clothes came in, she objected to what I’d done. Was I wrong not to wait?
A: No, since the owner wasn’t there and you couldn’t know how long her clothes had been in the washer, you had the right to carefully remove and place them on a table. Everyone using a laundry facility should keep track of the time as well as respect one another’s property.
