Yea, I don't understand the whole essential business rational. Unfortunately a lot of businesses are trying their best to declare themselves as essential - some of them are quite a stretch too. If we want to nip this thing we need to get serious about it and close a lot more businesses. I can work on a job site in construction literally by myself but I cannot. But yet drive through windows and take outs are deemed essential - learn to cook or pack a lunch, the person in the drive through window sees hundreds of people a day by the looks of it. The big box home improvement chains I believe are abusing it as well, 95% of what is being sold isn't essential either. I feel bad for the smaller businesses that are forced to close such as greenhouses while big boxes are making a killing. We have a big box home improvement chain that has been contacted by the states attorney general twice in regards to louring people in with sales ads as well as price gouging - I have since taken my business elsewhere. Sorry if I took that one a little of topic.

I went to the laundromat yesterday down here in Weslaco, TX. I was the only one in it.

Each state is setting there own rules. in my area big box stores are open.. But small box stores within the same category are open as well.

If your business is within an industry deemed essential you can open. The designation is not based on the size of the business

Go to a dry cleaner. They generally do laundry by the pound. Some call it Fluff and Fold.

Come on over only $10 to wash and $20 to dry!

No way would you catch me in a Laundromat!!!

Now I have another reason to be happy I have had a WD for nearly 5 years.

Sorry for those that have never washed clothes in a bucket. Two buckets is better. Not a tragedy.

Yep. That's just how crazy the country and local governments have gotten over what is going on.


This government is FAR from being crazy over this. I'll bet the OWNER of the laundrymat decided he liked his family ALIVE and WELL. See....he's the guy that cleans and maintains the place he owns.

Not that I know of. But bathing is not as necessary if you maintain social distance ??.
