Her clothes, on the other hand, were entirely dark. So, after she washed her own load, the color from her dark clothes wound up bleeding onto the woman’s white clothes– making them grey.
So, the other resident was devastated– because apparently, all of the items were brand-new, high-quality clothes that were being washed for the very first time.
Now, she admitted to realizing that the whole mix-up was really her fault. After all, she was the one who didn’t see the white items while switching the loads out. At the same time, though, she thinks the resident had a part to play in the situation, too.
“I also think that if she valued her clothes so much, she should have come to pick them up earlier,” she vented.
Regardless, she wound up apologizing for the mistake. But, the resident still just wanted her to pay for at least some of the clothes cost.
So now, she’s been left wondering whether “ruining” the woman’s clothes actually made her the jerk and if she should really have to pay for them or not.
Do you think she had a right to switch her clothes into the washing machine if that’s her apartment building’s policy? Even so, should she have been more careful when handling other people’s clothing items? Do you think she should be responsible for reimbursing this woman or not? What would you do?
