7 Laundromats Where My Scene Is Displayed Prominently Behind The Counter, Ranked By How Bad It Is That My Image Is Up There

Ive got a real propensity for get pictures of myself displayed behind the counters of laundromats. Here are all of them, ranked from best to worst.

7. Highland Cleaners

Im a hero to this laundromat. One day while I was there, a customer was dedicating the owner a hard time, saying things like, Devote me one good reason why I shouldnt stick myself in the washing machine. Plainly, this was just no good. I decided to put a bunch of my laundry quarters into a sock, and I hit the man over the head, knocking him out cold. The owner loved that I made this happen, and now whenever I go back to Highland Cleaners, I am received with a hero welcomenot to mention a 30 percent discount.

6. Southport Suds

For a while, Southport Suds was holding a challenge: If you could eat 10 spicy Buffalo wings while waiting for your clothes to dry, youd get your picture displayed behind the counter in enormous style. It was tough, but I was able to pull it off with a few seconds to spare. I aimed up being the only one to ever successfully complete the Southport Suds Buffalo Wings Challenge, and I will likely be the only one to do this forever, as the Health Department has since shut current challenges down. But the picture of my victorious, sauce-covered face still remains on the wall, which, to me, is a very good thing.

5. Cortland Cleaners

My picture being displayed at Cortland Cleaners is by sheer accident. The proprietors sponsor a Little League baseball team and put up the teams photo behind the counter as proof of their ties to the local community. I have no involvement with this particular Little League baseball team, but Im still featured in their squad photo nonetheless. This is because I happened to be walking by as the photo was being taken, and I was curious as to what was going on. I sat cross-legged in the front row, asked a kid, What is all this about? and when he said, Baseball, I get up and went along with my day. But I didnt get up before the flashing went off, so now I am eternally immortalized in the photo.

4. First Avenue Laundromat

Its solely unclear whether its good or bad that my scene is displayed prominently behind the counter of the First Avenue Laundromat. One day, I was rinsing my clothes when the owner snapped my scene, and when I asked him why, he wouldnt answer directly, only muttering, Youre going on the wall. Now, a very small picture of me is up behind the counter, and he still refuses to tell me the reason.

3. Elmhurst Cleaners

This is where the tide starts to turn, in terms of how bad it is that my picture is behind the counters of laundromats. Simply put, I poured a gallon of milk into one of the washing machines at Elmhurst Cleaners. I had heard a rumor that milk cleaned clothes, and the rumor was incorrect. At best, I have learned that milk destroys cleaning machines. Now Im no longer allowed to bring milk into Elmhurst Cleaners, and my image, complete with the words Utterly No Milk on the bottom, is now placed behind the counter to remind staff members of my misdeed.

2. Belmont Coin Laundry

Behind the counter of Belmont Coin Laundry is a huge picture of me trapped underneath the dryer. I really wish this wasnt the lawsuit. I had reached under the dryer to grab a one-quarter I had fallen, and in the process, somehow managed to have the dryer fall on top of me. It was a bad scene, and I transgressed my wrist. Another, most recent day at this laundromat, I met a new friend while doing my laundry( we bonded over our love of movies and television ), but once he saw the enormous picture of me trapped under the dryer with a broken wrist, he fell silent and strolled out the door, and our friendship stopped. Whenever a picture of yourself causes you to lose a friend, especially a new one, that is bad.

1. Five Star Laundromat

A picture of me is featured behind the counter of the Five Star Laundromat with the words Dullard Of The Month written above it in cursive. This has is still very, very bad for me. I became their Dullard Of The Month, during what I guess was a slow month for dullards, when I accidentally said Im do to here some laundry instead of Im here to do some laundry. Around here, earning a DOTM from Five Star is basically a scarlet letter, like from the book. Almost immediately, people no longer respected me, local restaurants stopped serving me, and my automobile get repossessed. I am also in danger of losing my job if I dont get this fixed by the end of the week, which is a problem, because the month still has three weeks to go. By far , nothing has been worse for me than this.

Stunning Street Art Festival Energizes A Neighborhood In Madrid

As the climate improves, the idea of being inside a museum becomes less and less attractive. People want to make up for lost period. In Madrid’s central Lavapies district, an arts festival is bringing art out onto the streets.

Sixty Spanish and international artists are participating in C.A.L.L.E, the third Emerging Lavapies Free Artistic Call Festival, between May 14 and June 5. The celebration, co-orgainzed by the Lavapies Merchants Association, seeks to boost artistic creation in the neighborhood, and draw people to its streets and local stores.

Artists have created artworks on the neighborhood’s walls, shop-windows, and other exteriors under this year’s topic: “The Future, Lavapies 2029. ” Angulo, an artist who painted the walls of local herb store El Druida for the festival, says she thinks C.A.L.L.E can help revitalize the Lavapies district.

“Initiatives like this one pushing people to walk through streets where galleries are not as popular as they should be, ” she told HuffPost Spain.

Mom Sees Stranger Snap a Pic of Her Van Outside of TargetThen She Writes Him This Letter

She was walking out with her son in total “meltdown mode” when she saw it…

By Alethea Mshar

Not the person or the van youd expect to see in a disabled parking spot .

Dear Young Man,

Maybe if this goes far and wide enough youll see it, I hope thats the case.

Awhile back as I was walking out of Target I saw you taking a picture of my van parked in a disabled parking place. You took off when you ensure me coming, I wish you hadnt, I wish you would have stayed so I could explain.

Yes, my van has running stickers on it, and yes, its an ironic image, insuring my 13.1 and 25 k stickers on a vehicle in a disabled place, I get why you took the picture. The playful side of me actually hopes you and your friends got a few laughs out of the picture.

But I hope you noticed my child when we exited the store. He was sitting in the cart even though hes far too big. Thats because my child is the person the placard is for. My guess is that the possibility hadnt even occurred to you. And thats why Im writing this.

My son is permanently disabled. He can walk, but not for any distance, and he has many health problems that sometimes prevent strolling much at all.

And we arent alone or unusual. Maybe my point of view is slanted too because I have dozens of friends whose children have disabilities, and because of how I often struggle to find an open handicapped place at the childrens hospitals we frequent. I simply want you to understand that children can be disabled and get a parking placard too. And just for the record, I dont use it unless my son is with me.

I wish we could have chatted for a minute, because I think we would have had a good conversation, and I likely would have widened my point of view by listening to you as well. Although to be honest my son was in meltdown mode and we probably wouldnt have been able to make much of the opportunity anyway. So if you happen to see this on the interweb, drop me a note. Id like to hear from you.
