There's a nosy adjusshi who's recently made the laundromat that opened up near my home some months ago into his personal clubhouse away from home. He's not an employee, and he purposely waits for when he knows the employees won't be there before showing up. When he's there, he stays for 8-10 hour stretches, just watching TV and falling asleep to different programs. He's not an employee, he isn't homeless, and he isn't hardup.

It pisses me off so much because I don't feel safe about leaving my laundry to do itself while he's around, and he's always around. I've walked in on him looking through other people's laundry before. I've said something to an actual employee about this dude before, but nothing's been done, so now I'm all like... what now? The guy is just so ****** weird and creepy.

Thinking that maybe I should try to get in touch with the actual owner, but... what if this guy *is* the owner incognito, lol?

Guess I just need to babysit my clothes every time I go there now.  :lipsrsealed:

Don't know I've ever seen this situation before, but whenever I have been the situation of using a public laundromat, I definitely would bring a book and wait there the whole time.  It wouldn't occur to me leave.  OTOH, when I lived in a smallish apartment complex, I definitely went back to the apartment.  The trick there is timing your return so some impatient person didn't dump your clothes out of the machine when it finished. 

That said, every apartment I've had in Korea came with a washing machine.  The first Korean laundromat I ever saw was in about 2016.  I hope this isn't a trend.

Ah.  I do have one blanket that's too big.  I take it to my dry cleaner.  In addition to dry cleaning, most of them also do regular wash at a reasonable price.

yeah good point. never thought to take the bedding to the dry cleaners actually. with the laundry places you can wash/dry it all in a couple of hours, and put it back on the bed, which is why i use it

Yeah, this place is close enough to my home that I leave to take care of other things. I always come back by at least 5 minutes before the machines are finished.

And I use the laundromat for bedding, mostly. I'll sometimes bring in a load of normal laundry to get a more thorough washing, though. The machine that came with my apartment is old and shitty. Even though I regularly treat it for both bacteria and mold, enough of either gets left in the drum and stuck on my clothes that, over time, they'll start to smell strange any time I sweat, even a little. I used to soak my clothes in a special solution once a month to help with this, but using the laundromat machines is far more effective and efficient.

8 Middle school students steal a car in Gwangmyeong.

Drive to Daejeon late at night.

Record it share it, laugh.

Hit delivery driver. He succumbs to his injuries later.

"Children" are under 14, can't be charged with anything.

People up in arms.

How the heck did they fit 8 people in that car?

They need to do spend the rest of their teenage lives in juvenile hall. Those over 13 should get +10 in the klink before parole. That being said, with everything we know about cognitive development, I'm really leery to see 25+ year sentences give out to juveniles, even older ones.

Cliched perhaps, but: If you're old enough to do the crime, you're old enough to do the time...!

 This kind of BS is sickening... if they've killed at that age (any remorse shown?), it's doubtful that they'll suddenly morph into 'responsible' citizens!

I've never understood why Korea is as soft as Charmin toilet paper when it comes to crime.

Soft on Juvenile delinquents
Soft on Sex Crimes
Soft on Past presidents

Yet ultra hard on drug offences

You know, given the fact that you can get off at literally any bus stop or subway station at any time of day and not run a serious risk of being mugged or attacked by a gang of youth, something that you could never say about a major metropolitan area back home, lack a for-profit prison industry, and don't have cops being constantly accused of using excessive force and kicking doors down and shooting grannies, maybe we should take a few notes just once in a while, rather than constantly criticize.

Open your eyes. Korea is cake when it comes to crime and the police. Some flaws? Sure, but compared to back home? I mean fing a dude. Let me drop you off in a little place called Brightmoor.  You'd come running back to Korea. Or how about you go through the system?

Korea is cake. If you think it isn't you haven't been in the scene.

Crime is dropping everywhere in the world (due to CCTV and cellphones).

The West isnít that bad and is getting safer every year.

However, yeah, Korea has less crime.

I also notice you only complain when I do it, not when anyone else does it. I mean, the OP implicitly compared Korea to other countries with his statement.
