One thing I do not have in this stupid room, is laundry facilities, and I don’t really have permission to use the ones in the basement. I’m sure it would be OK to use their machines, but with my luck something would happen. The washer would explode, or something. I decided to take all my dirty clothes down the street to the coin laundry.
Let me tell you something about this Laundry. I call it “Overload”. The reason is that the owner always complains about people overloading the machines.
While my clothes were washing, I went over to the condo across the street for a swim in their indoor pool. How did I get a key to the condo across the street? That is for me to know, and you to find out…Ha ha ha.
After my swim, I walked back to the Laundry. To my shock, the washer had stopped, and was still full of water. The stupid thing did not spin. I pulled the dripping-wet clothes from the washer and put them into the dryer. These are going to take a long time to dry!
I put quite a few quarters into the dryer, and right about then the “Overload” lady came in.
I told her the problem with the washer, and she replied exactly as I thought, “You overload machine! Too much in it! You broke my machine! If you break machine, you pay for fix!”
Awww…shut up, asshole. Overload your ass!
I don’t have time for this crap. I have so much to do. I still have to find a hotel, and buy the bus tickets. Shit.
When I got home from the Laundry, I just dropped everything into my bag. I don’t fold. I’m a guy.
Shit…shit…shit…I need on the computer to book a hotel. The best thing to do at this point is to go to hostelworld.com. I don’t have the time or money for a real hotel, so I guess I will have to settle for a dorm. I used to stay in those when I was younger. There is nothing wrong with them. They are clean and not too expensive. Then, I will go to the Coach Canada website to check for ticket prices.
I booked the Alexendre–Montreal near Barri-UQAM, it is a nice place and only $23 a day. I then checked the prices for bus tickets, $28 each way. That is not bad. Let me finish packing and get the fuck out of here. I am so happy to be getting out of this piece of shit city.
