Say, what?

It's mine.

That's my motto if I find it in the washing machine.

Over the weekend I found $23 floating around among the darks.

Because the load contained several pairs of pants, I figured my man forgot to empty his pockets.

Oh well ... his loss since I make the laundry rules.

I felt like I discovered hidden treasure. Then I realized all the pants in the load were mine.

Disappointed, I washed his balled-up socks in the next load as is.

...Gives new meaning to the term,"money laundering" then,eh?
I recently did laundry out at a laundramat in Spring Lake.
During the emptying process I found several white tee shirts and a set of restaurant white uniforms that were mixed in with my tightey whiteys.
Someone came along and thought my dryer was their's.
Well,turnabout being fair play,I moved the whites into someone else's dryer and went home.
Poor Jose...hope he found his things.

Why doesn't Scud do his own laundry?

Scud aka Spud has been know to do laundry from time to time. I really don't mind doing it, though. I'd much rather do that than windows or floors. And every now and then it pays off when you find a little $23 tip, even if it was mine in the first place!

I like what Pete said, new meaning to money laundering....ha

I never find $$$ in the washer, always in tbe dryer.

It gives me incentive to go home and do laundry. NOT!

growing up, the sofa cushions were the family 's piggybank..finding money in washer/dryer is "pay dirt" I guess..

Still, $23.00 is $23.00! Save it for Daytona! Woohoo!
