A new use for pillow chocolates
This thread reminded me of a launderette story I heard on board QM2 in January 2016: a lady discovered that someone had removed her things from the dryer, thrown them on the floor and put in their own laundry instead.
She retaliated by putting pillow chocolates in the dryer, which not only ruined their clothes but also ruined the dryer. She was apparently let off at the next port.
I've heard that story, too. Didn't know she was put off the ship.
Last summer, someone hijacked the dryer I was using. I got back to the launderette, opened the dryer door, and was surprised to find unfamiliar clothing there. I turned, and found my wet stuff in a laundry basket--very wet, they must have made the swap about 5 minutes after I started the dryer. That's so rude! Although I'd heard the chocolate story, I did not retaliate. Tempted, though...
