My dd has recently started a new job . A chap that works there travels from wherever he lives and stays in a hotel for the week and goes home at weekends.

He has asked her to do his washing for him and has offered to pay.

Dd didn’t know what to say and has come home with a bag of his washing. She is furious that he has asked her , saying that it’s sexist and a bloody cheek, which I agree with.

My washing machine is on it’s last legs as it is without doing a cheeky fuckers bloody washing as well !

I wouldn’t mind but it’s Monday , he’s had the weekend to do his own washing.

I’m tempted to bung it in the machine with a red sock !

He’s not a CF if he asked, offered to pay and your daughter took the laundry without saying anything.

Your DD really needs to stand up for herself.

It’s up to her if she does it and tells him to get stuffed next time, or if she hands it back to him tomorrow and says she’s changed her mind.

DD didn't know what to say? Really?

"NO"

There you go, do show her the thread!

He asked and your daughter didn’t say no. That doesn’t make him a CF. Your daughter should have said ‘I’m not a launderette pal!’

She should have said 'no'. Not sure it's sexist - more context would be needed.

I've been in this position and it's a stretch to travel home and get everything washed and dried in the space of a weekend.

How is it sexist? how old is this fella, maybe he isn't used to doing his washing, all he needs to do is be told to either take it to the laundrette or back to his own home. why did she say yes if she is furious he even asked. I wouldn't actually do it, I'd take it to the local laundrette and give him the bill on Monday.

Sexist why? confused

He offered to pay her to do something. She could've said no

JuanSheetIsPlenty Mon 24-Feb-20 18:58:59

Has she no tongue in her head?

Sofacat Mon 24-Feb-20 18:59:12

She didn’t really know what to say and she’s new at the company and doesn’t know this chap . She’s not going to do it though and I certainly don’t want a strangers washing hanging up in my house! It’s bad enough trying to get our own stuff dry in this weather.

She takes the clothes back and say the washers knackered, he'll have to sort something else out.

Never fall into the wash the clothes trap, it never ends well.

Sofacat Mon 24-Feb-20 19:01:41

She thinks it’s sexist because she works with one other female ( her boss) and the rest are men.

HappyHammy Mon 24-Feb-20 19:04:04

it's not sexist, she should have just said no, she will in the future but is she going to contact him and say she's not doing it or just going to take it back on Monday.

CrikeyYouDontWasteTime Mon 24-Feb-20 19:05:34

How very odd. Agree about saying washers broken and never taking any again. She definitely needs to learn to say no - not least because it's not even her own machine.

CrikeyYouDontWasteTime Mon 24-Feb-20 19:06:39

I wonder how many of the men he has asked to do his washing for him. The 'chap' is seriously lacking in boundaries. I would want someone else handling my dirty underwear - yuk.

CrikeyYouDontWasteTime Mon 24-Feb-20 19:06:54

Wouldn't

Sofacat Mon 24-Feb-20 19:08:34

He’s been at home this weekend so I can’t work out why he hasn’t done his washing while he was there.

She is going to give it back to him tomorrow.

Sofacat Mon 24-Feb-20 19:09:43

This is what dd thinks is sexist.

ALongHardWinter Mon 24-Feb-20 19:16:15

Your Dd really should have said no! I agree with the previous posters who've said give it back to him and say that the washing machines knackered. And tell her not to get caught out again! If he starts pestering in a week or two,asking if the machines been fixed yet,she should tell him that there are these things called launderettes.

idontlike789 Mon 24-Feb-20 19:18:13

Just take it back and say washing machine broke sorry .
So your dd works at the hotel that the man is staying at does he think it's a service they provide? .

Sofacat Mon 24-Feb-20 19:19:10

It’s not a hotel, she works in an office .

SpeedofaSloth Mon 24-Feb-20 19:19:28

I think it's sexist, OP.
DD does need to practice saying no, though.

ALongHardWinter Mon 24-Feb-20 19:20:05

Oops posted too soon. Meant to say,did he give your Dd the money up front? Because if he didn't,I would be willing to bet that even if she HAD done the laundry for him,no money would be forthcoming! Imo someone who has the bare faced cheek to ask a colleague who he barely knows for a favour like this would more than likely have no qualms about 'forgetting' to pay her.

bmbonanza Mon 24-Feb-20 19:23:27

He offered to pay and she could have said no. Don't really see why it is sexist, a lot of people would be happy to do this for a bit of extra cash, its not a favour its a business transaction.

Peg it on the outside line (without washing) with no pegs then give him a local map
