How long is "too long" to leave your laundry in a washer or dryer in a laundromat/apartment laundry room setting? What do you
do when you need to do laundry and find that someone has left stuff in a dryer?

Our laundry room is right downstairs from us, and quite frequently we see laundry left in the dryers for hours after the load has finished. I've seen seen stuff left in the dryers overnight. The laundry room has signs saying "Do not leave laundry unattended."
Do you guys just dump it on the table? Have any of you ever gotten bored and just folded it before putting it aside? Or do you just patiently wait?
If it's been more than 30-45 minutes, we usually dump it onto the folding table.
