I'd be pissed if someone touched my laundry too. Wait your turn. Jeeze.

If an apartment building has a washing machine that is used by all tenants, it is just rude to leave your laundry in the washer, unattended, after the cycle completes and someone else is waiting to use that washer. I would be tempted to remove the laundry, too.

I agree Eric. Sometimes people wait hours or even overnight to remove it.

And threatening someone is not a responsible way to resolve a dispute. Why not try talking to them about the laundry machines? Shared machines means that people have a responsibility to remove their laundry when it's done so that other tenants can use it.

When I left that comment I forgot to mention that I would never leave it longer than 15 mins after the load is done. I typically need something out of it right away!

That call in the police log made me think of college dorms. At Michigan State, you didn't have to watch the machines so closely. People wouldn't touch your clothes. I transferred to UMass Amherst and there, you had to be on it right away or it would be tossed on top of a machine by the next person.
