My landlord charges me £16 a week to do my laundry – I still have to wring my clothes dry, I’m angry

CONFESSION Time: We’re the person who wears everything in our closet (twice) if it means we don’t have to do a lot of laundry.

But while our hatred of this chore stems from sheer laziness, TikTok user Amanda has more reasons than most to put off this mind-numbingly boring task.

Earlier this month, the pastry chef went viral when she posted a video about the new washer and dryer in her apartment building.

When her landlord told her they were swapping out the old coin-operated machines for card-enabled machines, Amanda was thrilled with the news—because it would save her the hassle of going to the bank every week.

However, when she first used the new devices, Amanda got a nasty shock.

She claimed in a viral video: “[When I went down there]they were either all unplugged or had no means of payment to enter, which would be the only way to start the machine.”

Needless to say, the 22-year-old was absolutely furious and emailed her landlord asking why they’d increased her rent by $100 [£81] .

Then she was assured that they would work the next day.

When she was finally able to do a load eight days after the original date, Amanda noticed that the price of a wash had gone up 95 cents to $2.95.

But after checking her balance later that day, Amanda claimed she was charged $20 [£16] for using the washing machine and dryer.

Adding insult to the injury, she said the washing machine was so bad she had to wring her clothes herself.

She continued, “So I kept calling my facility manager and I was like, ‘What the hell is going on?'”

Rather than sort it out herself, the landlord simply told Amanda to email someone else to “see what they can do.”

“They are literally and actively stealing from me,” Amanda said. “What you can do is give me my money back.”

A viewer replied: “Time to call the bank and have them reverse this fraudulent charge.”

Another suggested, “Take it off the next rent payment.”

“I feel this pain so much,” wrote a third.
