This is the first time I've brought laundry to the laundromat for by-the-pound service. The only reason I'm doing it is because these are sheets, and just once I'd like the bottom sheets folded into compact rectangles, rather than chaotic jumbled balls that aren't even a close approximation to anything geometric.

The Asian attendant asks why I don't do it myself. I want to ask if she really doesn't want the extra money that will result from having them to do it rather than me, but I know my question will be, to her ears, as garbled as my folding.
