"making the world smaller" since 1994-ish
I just had the most surprising conversation while I stayed at home doing laundry and working on my Truth Serum/Dr. Sketchy's mailing!
I got one laundry machine started, but ran out of money and had to get the card more money. (ok, that's lame. The laundry machines don't use coins, they use "resident advantage cards." basically a credit card for the machines card). I went to the (other) machine to put credit on the card (omg), and a woman came off the elevator with a nurse/assistant. She asked me if I would show them how to use it.
She moved into the building three years after it opened... Can't remember how many years, like 17. But she's always done laundry down the street. She had a stroke a year or so ago, and she wants to do laundry in the building now. She walks with a walker, but is pretty good. And her speaking is great. She asked me if I had a assisted/nurse! I told her I had friends who helped me in the beginning. (thank you, friends!) I showed her how to put dollars on the laundry card, very slowly, a couple of times... Because she was expecting quick results, and it is time-consuming.
She said something like, "It is nice to meet you, given the circumstance. It would have been nicer in the past." I said, "It's nice to meet you! And we're doing fine, it doesn't matter either way." And I told her if she needed help with the cash card thingy, she can ring my bell.
(so this took 40 min. to write...)
