Hanging up your knickers?

When I do laundry I am always a good girl and usually take it out straight away. Today I loaded the machine and got side tracked and when I went down to collect my washing, I discovered that all my smalls were hanging up in a long row for the world to observe along with some other items

I can understand someone taking washing out of the machine and leaving it in a heap, and I don't have a problem with that, as I understand how irritating it is to use a machine when someone elses things are there, but as hardly anyone uses our machine I am rather surprised that everything was taken and hung up?

Re: Hanging up your knickers?

I think somebody was being nice? Some nice babichka? Those think there is nothing wrong with panties being hung, since these panties just have been washed...

Re: Hanging up your knickers?

Ah crazy laundry people! When I hang my washing up to dry, if I don't collect it the moment it is dry (probably as I'm at work) I find it folded up in a washing basket!! This is despite nothing else being on the washing lines.. It's not as if someone needs the space

I don't have a problem with it, although I can understand hanging up Tshirts but as knickers are personal I am just surprised ( thank goodness they were nice ones)

( I have done several cruises and have witnessed huge arguments if someone just takes someones laundry out of the washer/dryer)

This must be another Swiss thing then, because I've actually done it for other people's laundry...

In my old place we could either hang our laundry or put it in the drier, but most people chose to hang it. Quite a few times I've put their items hanging neatly to save them time and because I wanted the machine.

Re: Hanging up your knickers?

I think it's much nicer to hang the laundry than just leaving it in damp pile... And wouldn't it be a tad awkward to hang the t-shirts and leave the panties untouched? It's just laundry.

Re: Hanging up your knickers?

Since "hanging up your gloves" is to give up boxing, the thread title really made me wonder what was being given up.

Re: Hanging up your knickers?

Many years ago, a former colleague had dropped a pair of her (clean) smalls in the laundry room she shared with the owner. The next day, the offending pair were hanging off her front door handle .

Hanging up your Unterhosen is a Swiss tradition. Obviously, you've never been to Muotathal.

Re: Hanging up your knickers?

Sing along with those Pink Floyd boys:

Arnold Layne had a strange hobby
Collecting clothes
Moonshine washing line
They suit him fine

On the wall hung a tall mirror
Distorted view, see through baby blue
He dug it
Oh, Arnold Layne
It's not the same, takes two to know
Two to know, two to know, two to know
Why can't you see?

Arnold Layne, Arnold Layne, Arnold Layne, Arnold Layne

Now he's caught - a nasty sort of person.
They gave him time
Doors bang - chain gang - he hates it

Oh, Arnold Layne
It's not the same, takes two to know
two to know, two to know, two to know,
Why can't you see?

Arnold Layne, Arnold Layne, Arnold Layne, Arnold Layne
Don't do it again.
