Tonight I watched a news. In order to have a better city look, the officers said that we should not hang and dry our clothes in the streets. In the old downtown, the people live small houses and they even don't have a balcony to hang and dry their clothes. Actually they have nowhere to hang their clothes but hanging them outside the houses. It is very inconsiderate not allow them to dry their clothes outside. A reporter interviewed an old granny and this old granny said she had to hang the clothes at night when nobody saw it... I think this rule can't be carried out completely because it can't work because of such a stupid thought

I wonder whether the problem can be solved even if giving the dryers for those families.

@youless free dryers and hair blowers would suffice for the villagers

Why can't they hang them in the back. Why does it have to be on the streets? I have to agree with them.

@abhinalstrikr ...Okay. Then I am confused on why there is any problem. Why would anyone want to hang their laundry out in front?

@celticeagle Because their home is too small to hang the clothes.

Yes I agree with this totally. Here where I live we are not allowed to do so either. It costs me money I do not have to put them in the dryer. What a crock of shite for them to come up with this law over there where you are too making it hard on people.

They don't have the dryers. Even if they have the dryers, they may not offer the higher electricity bills or their home is too small to have the dryers.

@TiarasOceanView We don't have many laundry stores here. And usually we just give the laundry stores expensive coats to have the dry wash. And it is expensive.

I think that is a very stupid idea too. In Singapore, we still hang our clothes outside, and nobody says that we have an ugly country because of this practice. The country is so hot and sunny, and that is the best weather for drying clothes.

I think the rule is silly too. The government always seems to mess things up for people and make life so much harder.
