The Laundry room and the Patient

I hate doing laundry period. First is not having my own machine inside my apartment, secondly is that our apartment laundry room only has 5 washers and 6 dryers which by the way only 3 of them dries pretty nicely. Yes, FMML! Fuck my Laundry Life! Lmao.

Anyway, I went to our laundry room today for my first round of laundry in preparation for my trip to Portland this Thursday for the NAGVA Championships Yes people, I take forever to pack, get everything sorted out and decide which one makes it to my luggage. So what I do is that I do a general laundry mission. Haha.

When the elevator doors opened, I immediately removed one of my headsets just to hear if there's people in the laundry room. I can hear the washers and dryers running and in the back of my mind, I was like "shit! Here comes a long night of laundry work". I stepped in the room and here comes one of my neighbors that lives around the corner from me. Again, talking in my head and said "Damn it!"

She is this Filipina lady on her 50's. She wears this vintage style glasses that just fits her short curly hair and her mumu dress.

I was about to sit away from her not knowing that she was just right behind me and tells me that one of the washers is open. She says it as if she owns the room and was about to ask me for rental money for using one of her washers. I thanked her for letting me know. That wasn't the first time that happened, ive done my laundry before with her using all the machines all at ones.

Why did I title this "The Laundry room and the Patient"? She happens to go to the hospital that I work at. She often comes in everyday for her clinic appointments. Most of the time, she uses our emergency room entrance to get in the hospital and since I work there and she saw a familiar face, she tries to get my attention to ask questions and at the same time she asks me to get her checked in to her appointment.

One time, I checked her in for her appointment but it was showing that she was running behind. U asked her if the doctors office knows and she replied, "yes!" I guess it was my fault not checking with the doctors office but fact that she lied to me and it got me in trouble pissed me off.

Eversince that happened, i made it clear to her that she should check in for her appointments where the rest of the patients should check in but deep inside I still feel bad not helping her coz she is a patient and it's part of my job.

Did i just get even with her with these? Would she feel the same way if I need to use her so called laundry room?

Shallow I know.
