A Little Consideration

I was a bit dismayed this morning when I went downstairs. My father told me to look at my clothes that I washed almost the whole day yesterday. I think you could imagine just how much clothes are there in the clothesline when I washed from morning til afternoon and I am quite sure that most of them are still damp because it wasn't windy last night and we already have cold mornings. I went out and I had seen my sister-in-law already getting my clothes from the clothesline. She was placing them in an empty basin to free some space because they will wash their clothes. She asks her sister to come here once in a while to wash their clothes. I took my other damp clothes but I didn't remove them from the hangers and placed them inside the house and some, upstairs. Then the other clothes that are still wet (at least 50% dry) are left at the clothesline. Then she took the basin inside the house, with my clothes folded into two. I checked those and found out that they really are still damp. I should get them this afternoon to fully dry them up before fixing them inside my cabinet but she already took them out of the clothesline. So, I had to get a hanger with pins and I pinned them back but for sure it will take longer to dry them up because they are inside the house. I just hope she had a little consideration not to let her sister wash today to give time for my clothes to dry up. They could just wash any other day because they are not working. Now, I have additional things to do. I have to iron my clothes in just a while to make sure that they are already dry. Are you considerate to others?

Yes, she is mean. She has that rudeness. That's ours so we can make use of it. I just cannot complain. I am not very vocal when it comes to these things. But since she is older, she must have been more mature to decide about it. There were times when even if I wanted to wash my own clothes, I just could not because she had already occupied it and she even lets their clothes stay there even if it had dried up for how many days, waiting for my mother to get and fold it for them.

Yes, but it's not always that I occupy all. That was the only time I washed that much. She could have just made an adjustment of washing the next day. Or maybe she could just made use of the other clothesline outside if she wanted to and not removing my clothes which are still damp and already folded them. That was so rude. When it's her time to wash, I never wash mine so that she could occupy the clothesline as much as she wanted.
