Gentrified Laundry

"You know the neighbourhood is gentrifying when you see hipsters washing their sundries at the local laundromat. It used to be just us black, brown and yellow people...But now (meaning a dramatic showing in the last three months) there are skinny white boys wearing skinny jeans and skin-tight ironic t-shirts, and not so skinny white girls in American Apparel shiny leggings and tops inspired by eighties fashion that barely cover their asses with those scrunchy eighties boots and both sexes sporting asymmetrical haircuts with bangs that hang in their eyes."
