Been busy and I mean really busy till no time to blog woi! Terrible! So die die me staying up burning the midnight oil to put this up before I forget..
One of the many conversations I’ve heard from my customers…
Consumer – Here’s my 2000 over dollars jacket, be careful with it ok. It’s very expensive!!
The Launderer proceeds to mark down the items and attach the prices for the cleaning..
Consumer – Wah RM18 to dry clean this jacket (the 2000 over dollar one) ah?
Launderer – Yes, this is big jacket..(stupid answer lor..cos if it’s me I will charge double the price and tell him it’s bcos the jacket is sooooo expensive, hence extra care & precaution is needed)
Consumer – eh I give so many things to wash, comforter and all cannot be cheaper meh??
(Warao eh,,, owner of 2000 over dollars jacket wanna bargain meh??)
That’s what I hate most. I wonder if that person bargained when he bought that 2000 over dollars jacket? I mean, like he expects the launderer (poor guy who’s probably earning like say maybe RM8 (or less if he sends the dry cleaning to another contractor) from cleaning that 2000 over dollars jacket and having the stress of taking care of it and making sure it doesn’t get damage or lost! Is that worth it or not? I actually have customers (dry cleaners) telling me they suffer from so much stress and sometimes have nightmares because of having to handle expensive garments.
It’s high time that people give us people in the laundry business the due respect man! Hey first thing first why did he send his 2000 over dollars jacket to a laundry to wash? If he’s so smart, and not willing to pay for the laundry charges, why did he not wash the 2000 over dollars jacket at home? I mean, there is a freaking good reason that dry cleaners exist in this world right? Meaning, they are professionals too because they do what most people can’t do, that is dry clean their 2000 over dollars jackets la! Get my point by now??? WTF!
