See you there
~ Doctor Horrible
Well you can guess what I did this afternoon, though the laundry hanging in the picture is not actually my own laundry…
As a fan of Joss Whedon I adore Doctor Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, but there’s one thing that bothers me. It bothered me also in Friends, other sitcoms and a relatively small number of films. Oh, and in a Levi’s commercial. It’s the myth of laundrettes (or Laundromats) being fun, entertaining or at least interesting places.
A number of years ago our washing machine passed away. Luckily a coin-wash had recently opened nearby, and rather than buying a new appliance I decided to go there. After all it always seemed like a fun way to wash you clothes, meet people, make friends and generally add the social factor to an otherwise boring chore.
Well, it’s a lie. Years of going to the laundrette taught me that most of the times you’ll be alone and bored to death. Otherwise you might meet tired looking people who hate being there and have no interest in getting to know you. And many times you’ll get ripped off by a faulty machine.
So the lesson is: don’t believe what you see on TV.
And get your own washing machine.
