Ewwwww (and peace to you, dear Alby!). Second, was there some reason he couldn't wash his OWN chonies? I mean, he certainly could'a used my machine (that would have been ME "doing good" to him - letting him use my water, electricity, soap, etc.). But what was wrong with HIS hands... his "humility monitor" (i.e., "he that wants to be the greatest among you must be the least")... and so HIS "service." Did he not think your wife had enough of her own work to do?
Back then I would have kindly said, "You are QUITE welcome to come over on [blank] night, brother, and either I or "husband" can show you how to use the machines (I'm thinkin' he'd need to know how to work the dryer, too, yes?). Matter of fact, you and "husband" can have a Coke/Corona and a chat, and the kids and I'll just get on out of you boys' way, you know, go see a (G-rated) movie... or visit a sick/elderly sister."
TODAY, I would say the same thing AND "You know, brother, most dry cleaners also do laundry. They charge by the pound and since you probably don't have a lot, it shouldn't be too expensive. Here's $20."
I bid you all peace.
A slave of Christ,
SA, who's thinking "rachafracha 'Pharisee,' thinking 'sisters' have nothing better than to do his dirty laundry" and "rachafracha 'sisters' for LETTING guys like him THINK it"...
