    Don’t forget repayments include 50% loan charge at least…

    Guess what she spent part of it on?

    gmartin997 I retired from an industrial laundry and money was always falling out of pants pockets. Never knew who it belonged to.

    Nah – it does fall out. I’ve found bills in the dryer.

    Yet another lesson in responsibility, Michael – learn now, less problems later!

    Why does she look so upset about spending it? If it’s came from John’s pocket, it’s hers also. My husband’s and my money are all the same. He doesn’t get upset if I spend it, even if it’s on frivolous things.
    And if it’s Michael’s, just pay him back. Yes, he should watch what goes in the laundry, but it’s his. It would be mean to say “finders keepers, losers weepers” at that age. Wait until he’s a teenager… ;-)

    Has always been a house rule: If you do laundry and find money in the washer or dryer it is yours.
    Moral: Be SURE your pockets are empty before you put your clothes in the hamper.

    Whatever I finds, I keeps! The one unbreakable rule for the laundress of the house.

    I found $12 in the washer, once. Mostly I find coins but there are bills every once in a while. I keep it, it’s my toll for doing all the laundry.

    With us, the washer was out of action for over a day one… luckily, step-by-step troubleshooting spared us from calling out an expensive engineer. Dismantling the filter in the outlet pipe revealed the problem… less than a pound in loose change clogging the pipe and preventing free circulation fo water. And oddly enough, whatever chemical was in the water turned “silver” coins black…

    In Lynn’s notes, she says that money is made from paper. She is WRONG. Since I think the early 1900’s money was made from 100% Cotton. NO wood pulp at all!
    Now, that has changed with the introduction of Polymer bills in 2011…

    Lynn’s Notes:
    This is an invented scenario. The only cash I found in the dryer was small change…but a cheque, now and then, did make its way into the laundry. Too bad cheques aren’t made from the same semi-washable material as paper bills!


    I did get into the habit of checking all my pockets before washing them. But it took a while and lost money to do it.
