As if life weren’t busy enough, there’s something about fall that kicks it into hyper-drive. Between the holidays, shortened work weeks, drunken office parties and stress of hanging with the family, we sometimes feel like the DJ in our mind goes from playing “Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)” to “Flight of the Bumble Bee.” It’s not good.
In fact, sometimes we get so busy we forget key life elements like picking up the dry cleaning.
On those days, we’re pretty easy to spot. Just look for the guy in a pair of camel-toe-inducing Z. Cavaricci’s left over from that ’80s party and a three-sizes-too-large, Nirvana-inspired flannel shirt that was saved from the Goodwill pile during a bout of nostalgia.
It only took one of those days (and the unending outfit ridicule of friends and co-workers) to realize that we had a problem. So, we picked up the phone and called Brad Davis at Pressed4Time, the mobile dry cleaning service that offers FREE pick up and delivery.
Now, we have a weekly standing appointment for his crew to stop by the office and pick up our unmentionables while dropping off a batch of clean, pressed options. And because they provide us with the laundry bag, we can keep our dirty laundry (and pant-waist size) to ourselves.
Don’t want the folks at the office to see that you spent your bonus on a Dolce & Gabbana blazer, and not the orphanage donation like you told them? Pressed4Time can pick up at your house. too.
They can even slap a new set of soles on your shoes and handle minor alterations like buttons and tears. Good to know for the next time you forget your shirt has buttons, not snaps, and try to break out your best Chippendale’s impression.
Prices start at $1.50 for laundered shirts, $3.75 for dry cleaned shirts/blouses and $4.00 for dry cleaned slacks.
