the right is a 24/7 laundromat the main porch is facing the restaurant you can see all these places from underneath the house and the porch it's pretty open this is normally a pretty quiet tourist town and the family has been coming here for years and has never had an issue before it was our next to last day on vacation and the landlord of the house has always been good to the family so we watched all the bed sheets for him including a heavy down comforter that needs to go to the laundromat instead of our washer and dryer boyfriends mom and I take the blanket over to the laundromat around 10:00 p.m. we stay out on the porch to watch the laundromat and make sure no one comes and steals our blanket washing the blanket took way longer than we originally thought it needed to get washed twice on the longest setting to get clean by the time we had put it in the dryer it was 1:00 a.m. somewhere between 10:00 and 1:00 a maintenance man showed up and was working on a few of the machine he was really nice and he had told us to not use three of the machines as they had been running subpar we all had went back to the house and the family joined us all sitting on the porch drinking talking about how we're about to leave and generally having a good time by now it was around 2:15 in the morning and my boyfriend's mom asked me to go check on the blanket and run it another time if necessary I had a bad feeling for some reason and actually my boyfriend's dad could do it my boyfriend's dad is a pretty huge guy and it's scary as hell if you don't know him he said it was fine and went to run and check on the blanket he came back and said it needed to be ran a little bit longer now my boyfriend and I are pretty avid smokers his family doesn't care so we go on the private outdoor shower lock the door and start smoking away there's a seat in there separate from the shower part so we just chill there a few minutes later we hear some loud banging from the laundromat we go out and see that the maintenance man is still there we didn't think anything of it and went back to smoking I was playing on my phone and noticed that it was 227 in the morning at this time we heard someone begin to scream in a panicked voice what the hell what the hell what the hell dude we headed out of the outdoor shower and so a man booking it across the street towards our house cuts through our yard and ran right beside the shower the maintenance man ran into his car and whipped out of the laundromat and turned down

the road away from our house hits a parked car continued screeching down the street and finally wrecking we couldn't see the car at this point but we just heard a loud crash we went upstairs to everyone on the porch and we asked them if they had just witnessed what we just saw we called the police and they were there within five minutes one cop went down the road to the accident there was a shoe and some other stuff on the road and the laundromat door was still hanging wide open the police tape everything off and us being so close we heard them radio that there was blood everywhere and they needed to call others two more cops showed up and there was now four cops in total in this little laundromat parking lot we gave them our story and they could not physically right most of us as witnesses as we were drinking but they still wanted to know what we saw they started searching for weapons where the one guy ran which was mainly through our yard the cops didn't keep us updated on anything nothing at all we got some looks from them for the smell but they didn't say anything after they completed their investigation we saw a cleaning crew come and they locked the laundromat doors after we had gotten our blanket we saw in the newspaper the next day at union street laundromat in manchester nh that a homeless man came in and stabbed the maintenance man and was trying to rob him in the process when the maintenance man got a good swing on the guy he ran out and away towards the beach the police found the homeless guy a few blocks away I guess the maintenance man was trying to get to the laundromat owners house which I'm not completely sure why but it was only a few blocks in the other direction when he got in his car the maintenance man got taken to the hospital and was ok the homeless man obviously got taken to prison I'm really glad that I asked my boyfriend's dad to go check on the blanket because I just miss being in the laundromat during this whole ordeal by less than 20 minutes after all the commotion was gone we smoked a bit more and had a few stiff drinks then locked the doors and went to bed nothing else happened for the rest of our vacation this is my story I experienced with my friend at a laundromat I go to every week just a little bit of background information I'm a 17 year old Caucasian female I work with my mom at a local newspaper business and she happens to be one of the four bosses so needless to say in this part of town everyone knows my mom and I we work in the delivery part and we start about 12 a.m. to start delivering after I'm done I head back to our home and pack up our laundry it's a family of seven so we have seven baskets worth of clothes the laundromat I go to is also a gas station and is across the street from our workplace the cashier and my mother are best friends so she agreed to keep an eye on me while I washed clothes on one particular weekend I brought my friend with me to work and do laundry to get done faster to study for finals that coming Monday we had already brought the clothes in and started washing we had been there

about an hour already and it was about 4 a.m. in the morning at this point in time the clothes had already been put in the dryer so I left about three quarters on a table next to the dryers just in case one of them needed more time we happen to be the only ones in there so I didn't think twice about leaving them sitting there so my friend and I were standing at another table being usual 17-year olds just laughing and fooling around when all of a sudden I saw this old man stumble in with raggy clothes and a book bag on I knew he wasn't there to wash his clothes due to his book back and lack of laundry basket or bag he walked straight over to the quarters on the table and picked them up and flipped.
