You will never guess where we are right now (or maybe you will, because the answer is in the headline). Give up? We’re at the laundromat! And while we’re waiting for our clothes to dry, we realized this is a great place to do some sign-spotting. After all, people’s quirks and personality traits are rarely more apparent than when they’re washing and folding their unmentionables. So, which sign is lecturing people on the correct way to use the machines? Which sign is loaning out quarters? Which sign is cramming their face into a warm blanket and getting high on the scent of fabric softener? Find out, after the jump…
Aries (March 21st-April 19th): Lights, darks, delicates, blankets–it’s all the same to an Aries, who is shoving all of their laundry into one machine and then pacing impatiently.
Taurus (April 20th-May 20th): Beaming with glee at their fresh clean linens, a Taurus can be found nuzzling their face into a warm blanket straight out of the dryer and inhaling that heavenly smell of fabric softener.
Gemini (May 21st-June 20th): It’s unclear whether a Gemini goes to the laundromat to actually do their laundry or to make new friends. They’ll gladly ask about your day and tell you about theirs while you’re trying to fold your underwear.
Cancer (June 21st-July 22nd): Tucked away in a corner patiently waiting for their laundry to dry, Cancer is totally engaged in an intense phone convo with their BFF.
Leo (July 23rd-August 22nd): Strutting around in a shockingly well put-together outfit and smiling warmly at the other patrons, if anyone can make a trip to the laundromat seem cool, it’s a Leo.
Virgo (August 23rd-September 22nd): Methodically organizing, folding, and hanging all of their clothes, a Virgo will spend 3 hours at the laundromat if that’s what it takes to get the job done perfectly.
Libra (September 23rd-October 22nd): Leave it to Libra to make a trip to the laundromat a social event. They’re perched on the folding table, laughing and chatting it up with at least one friend while their clothes tumble in the dryer.
Scorpio (October 23rd-November 21st): To ensure their privacy, a Scorpio will choose a machine in the corner and stay near it the whole time, looking vaguely threatening.
Sagittarius (November 22nd-December 21st): A Sagittarian will be sure to inform you of the machine capacities, cycle times, and prices–whether or not you actually needed to know.
Capricorn (December 22nd-January 19th): You’ll find a Capricorn diligently scoping out each machine to see which one is the most economical and carefully counting out their formidable stash of quarters.
Aquarius (January 20th-Febraruy 18th): Superheroes of the laundromat, an Aquarian is the person who will swoop in to help you out with a defective machine or lend you an extra quarter if you’re short.
Pisces (February 19th-March 20th): Strolling in with three overflowing hampers, wearing pajama pants and a torn college hoodie, it’s all too obvious that Pisces has waited until the last possible minute to do their laundry.
