Lint-bunnies and plastic baggies

I live in an apartment complex with shared washers and dryers all over the complex.  Typically the laundry area is kept pretty tidy, even though they are in damp musty basements. But today as I began my six (long overdue) loads of laundry, I was taken aback by the room. Spills of laundry detergent on the washers, dryer sheets, plastic bags and lint-bunnies littered the floor.

Now, I’ll admit I forget to clean the lint filter from time to time, so I didn’t mind cleaning out someone else’s lint, but the large mess in the room prompted me to write a message about messes. It’s pretty simple: clean up after your own messes, wipe up your spills, pick up what you drop, and if you are a saint, tidy up a mess you didn’t even make.  I bet we’ll all make our moms proud.

  1. My job involves being in other peoples personal living space and there are times when I come upon a messy kitchen or bathroom, an area that I will be needing to use. I usually do my best to clean up the space with regard to their property and I always leave their space cleaner than I found it. I figure, someday someone will return the favor when I need it. 🙂
