VCU Student Willing to Drive 20 Minutes to Mom’s House Instead of Venturing Into Basement for Laundry

RICHMOND, Va. — VCU freshman Sarah Wagner has been observed travelling to her mom’s house in Henrico to do laundry instead of using the laundry room in her dormitory basement.

Wagner, who started at VCU in August, reported that it is the first time she has ever been away from home for an extended period of time. “I mean, I do sort of know how to do my laundry and everything, but the way my mom does it, my clothes come out super soft and smelling good,” Wagner explained, emphasizing the complexity of the laundry process. “I don’t think I could replicate that.”


When reached for comment, Wagner’s mother Wendy Rhyman stated, “I want to teach Sarah independence, now that she’s out on her own for the first time. Obviously, I taught her how to do laundry before she left for college, but I didn’t realize how dingy the dorm basement would be. What if the lights go out while she’s down there one day? And those washing machines look ancient. How do I know her clothes are actually getting clean?”

Wagner told reporters that she has been slowly integrating herself into extracurricular activities but that she still goes to see her mom at least four times a week. “I don’t want to push myself too hard into college or the adult life just yet,” she said.

At press time, Rhyman was seen cutting the crust off of a peanut butter sandwich while Wagner drank a glass of milk at the kitchen table.
