Went over to the local dry cleaners today. I'm looking for a place close by that will do my laundry. I don't have a whole lot of time to do it myself, and I'm running out of clothes. I figured that it wouldn't be that bad - there's a place across the street from me at home that charges fifty cents a pound. So, worst case scenario, maybe two bucks a pound, right?
Try SIX DOLLARS A POUND.
Oh, that's just the rate for underwear.
For heavier stuff?
SEVEN DOLLARS A POUND.
Heavier stuff includes t-shirts.
Needless to say, I won't be taking my clothes there. Looks like I may be spending my off day in the crappy laundry room of our "corporate apartment". Grrrrr.
