"She stood by the utility sink, holding a bra in her right hand and asked, 'How do I get this off?'"

"In the early years of the business, I would ask them why they were hanging out in the laundry on Christmas. After all, there is no TV, the chairs are hard and there is no refrigerator to raid. I have heard the answer a thousand times if I have heard ti once, 'My relatives have been visiting for the last week and I am hiding out at the laundry to get the hell awayt from them!"

"Only once did I see this. A young man came to the Laundry with his empty soap bottle. While other customers were distracted, he would pour a little of their soap into his container."

Sometimes the lack of proper dress is because all their clothers are dirty. Sometimes they are just lazy"

"She wore sunglasses on ther cloudt fall day. She had seven machines full of wash, but as she stood by the last two washers, she realized that she had run out of money. On the side of her face, underneath the glasses, you could see the shiner."

"I had no idea who owned the lacy black thong. I was sure tha no self-respecting woman would come looking for it. She would be emabrrassed to ask me, the male owner, if I had seen this item."
