passive-aggressive laundry behavior

when i went to move my laundry from the washing machine to the dryer, i had to remove the towels that someone had left in there. when i removed my clothes from the dryer, they were still there. i briefly considered putting the towels back into the dryer, but decided to leave them where they were so that the person who left them behind would know that they had been in the way.

i generally try to avoid messing with someone’s laundry in cases like this, but made an exception because it was just towels. i avoid it as an application of the golden rule — i don’t like the idea of someone else pawing through my clothes (when i’m not in them), so i do the same.
