OP lives in an apartment complex with a shared laundry room, and had previously been asked by their neighbor to follow a laundry schedule
One day, when it was not OP's laundry day, they had to wash their dog's soiled pillow and blanket due to an emergency.
OP found their laundry out of the machine
When OP decided to continue washing their laundry, the neighbor blocked the washing machine with her body and swore at OP when they asked her to move aside.
But OP retaliated, and now wonders if what they did was wrong.
OP has offered the following explanation for why they think they might be the a-hole:
"No one gets to make rules about your complex except the landlord."
OP should contact the landlord
This Redditor says:
The "laundry agreement" is dead. Long live the new agreement!
The bottom line is:
Shared spaces, such as laundry rooms and common areas, can also be a source of conflict. As in the case of OP in the previous article, disagreements over laundry schedules can lead to tension between neighbors.
It's important to communicate with neighbors and try to find compromises that work for everyone involved. Overall, getting along with neighbors in an apartment building requires patience, communication, and a willingness to compromise.
While conflicts may arise from time to time, it's important to address them calmly and respectfully in order to maintain a peaceful living environment. However, most of the time, it is easier said than done.
