Ineffective laundry-business :-)

Ps. I think '24/7' is a kigo word?

Pss. A long time ago I walked in Staten Island, then needed a Taxi and found a taxi-phone by a laundry.
Picked the phone and asked me a taxi.
- Where are you?
- By this Laundry.
- There is many, which of those...

Anyway. I got the taxi... So, the laundry system is working well. 7/24!

tikkis: I lived on Staten Island for 20 years. Glad to know things worked out for you there.
