Here is the story. Monday, I went to do laundry at a laundry-mat. I pull my whites out and there is stains all over my clothes. My whites mostly consisted of dress shirts and socks. There was grease in the dryer left behind. The dryer looked normal to me. 5 shirts were ruined. 2 of which were brand new. The laundry mat refuses to cooperate, so I'm taking them to court. I will win the case.
These aren't t-shirts either.

So you didn't notice the "We are not responsible for damage to your clothes" sign?

I'm sure the judge will be impressed that your clothes were ruined at a "laundry mat". Thanks for keeping us all updated with every aspect of your day. BTW, yesterday, I had a great deal to eat and drink, and I'm going to the bathroom.

You don't have a case.

Ever see all of those signs around that say, "Not Responsible for lost or damaged laundry". I know the one I use has them all over the place.

Plus you have a responsiblity to inspect the dryer prior to use.

Okay a little more now:

I did infact inspect the dryer. I went to an upscale cleaners, and they agreed with me it is not my fault. How is it my fault that they do not clean out their dryers? It is not my responsibilty to scrub a dryer.

I talked with my father (since I'm still dependent on him as I'm still in college) it was his idea to have a suit against them, the cleaners said the same thing I will be using his lawyer. I will not seek anymore money than they owe me, but I believe as do everyone I've talked to in person, that I am owed the money.

They constantly defer me and tell me to call the next day. The owner won't talk to me, though the owner tried to get the stains out herself. If it WASN'T their fault then why would they feel so bad and try to get the stains out?

Secondly. I went the next day and the woman working said "Gladdis was working, she was supposed to wipe out all the dryers."

So you're talking 2 brand new dress shirts and 3 used dress shirts. First off, always bring white dress shirts to a dry cleaner/professional laundromat. They're about $1-$2 each, and any problems are their responsibility. Secondly, what is the value of your shirts, $200 Tops? That's small claims, AA, and having a lawyer is a bit of $$$ overkill isn't it?

Good god! $85 per shirt? If I ever spent that much on a regular shirt, I'd take it to the drycleaner. There's plenty of places around here that do it for 99 cents.

How interesting: a rich kid using daddy’s lawyer to sue a small business owner over something trivial. Thanks for sharing. Do you expect them to clean all the machines after each use? Why anyone would want to start a business here is beyond me.


Americans are such sniveling wimps, ready to sue each other over every minor irritation. It’s embarrassing. Bad stuff happens sometimes. Nobody died. Grow a pair and move on.

PS: If your shirts are so important and expensive, have them dry-cleaned next time.

One thing I do not understand. You can afford 85$ shirts, yet, you cannot afford a washing machine ?
Gosh, my shirts average 20€ - they are not Lacoste, granted (and anyway, no right minded French would wear Lacoste), but I own a very good washing machine.

Went to the laundry mat for the first time of my life three weeks ago. I had just moved in my new flat, and the washing machine was not plugged in.
One thing I made sure, is that there wasn't anything left in the machine before stuffing my clothes in. I had just watched 'Catch me if you can' , and the sight of Tom Hanks taking all his pinked whites out of the machine was still clear in my mind.

Good luck in court anyway.

Cheers,

I don't own a washing machine either, I bring all my dirty clothes to the dry-cleaner (yes all, incl. my boxer shorts!). My parents as well as my girlfriend's parents tell us since weeks (since we moved together to Hamburg) that we should buy a washing machine but somehow we are too lazy Big grin.

Well, at least I already get discount at the dry-cleaner  Big thumbs up.

I don't own a washing machine myself, it really doesn't make sense in an apartment.

when my girlfriend gets her house we are getting a washing machine. Not because somehow we have more money, but because the nearest place to do our laundry would be several miles away.
