Supply and Demand

I've recently run into a few problems. I moved here not so long ago and I can guarantee you I will be moving again in another 1.5 months. The problem being laundry, this wonderful apartment they set me up with (that was total sarcasm by the way) does not have washers and dryers in the apartments. You have to use THEIR facilities. Normally it probably wouldn't have mattered all that much but now it does.
I work in an industry that you HAVE to wear specific colored uniforms. Also, normally not a problem but lately I've been picking up MASSIVE amounts of overtime. So suddenly the number of uniforms I have is creating a problem, I use to do laundry every few days when I got home from work, that was when I did have a washer-dryer in the apartment. Now, there is NO WAY I'm in the mood when I get home to even think about laundry, I'm lucky if I'm even awake by 915 and I get home about 845.
The only solution, go out and buy more uniforms since my demand has suddenly exceeded my supply.
Just what I wanna spend a few hundred dollars on, not to mention what they get away with charging you to actually use their facilities, it's like 80/month. It only cost me about 30/month to rent the damn things, something is NOT right here.
The other solution is to move the day my lease is up on this place and you can rest assured knowing that will VERY DEFINITELY be happening.
I tried asking nicely, why don't you put me *here*, meaning housing. I got well we aren't that big of an agency so we can't afford to do that like the big agencies do. What your telling me then is that if I want to get what I want I have to change agencies???
Darlin' unless you haven't heard lately there's a national critical shortage of people in my line of work, I can pick and choose, not nice to make the help deal with these conditions. The ONLY time I got an apartment I actually liked I demanded it, the other 3 times they keep sticking me in the exact same type of housing. Last chance, gimme what I want or the next agency I can guarantee you will.
It's really sad when you think about it, I like the agency I work for but I can't deal with the housing, time to start becoming aggressive, I'm in high demand with the rest of the nation dealing with a short supply, time to start capitalizing on that fact.

Darlin', I'm right there with you on the laundry thing. I've become spoiled after house-sitting for three weeks and using the in-home laundry resources. Coin laundry establishments are such a pain.

Let me drive. I like the view

I wish it WERE coin laundry, you actually have to buy laundry "CARDS" here, and only one of the laundry rooms has them so you have to go all the way over there just to get the damn things, after swiping your debit card and then go back to the laundry facility by your apartment, it's a huge hassle.

And I thought I had it bad here where the machines are breaking down all the time. If I don't get there early in the am to get a machine I could be stuck for hours trying to get some clean cloths.
