Laundromat etiquette question

Hey folks, I have a hashtag urban living question. Trying to frame it so it's not obvious which person I was....

The scene: a busy laundromat. Person 1 arrives, sets machine to do their laundry, observes how long it's supposed to run, leaves to run a few errands.

Machine finishes its cycle while Person 1 is still gone. No other machines are free.

Person 2 removes Person 1's laundry, sets the machine to do Person 2's laundry. Person 1 returns to find their clothes in one of the handy baskets next to the machine.

So...is Person 1 more inconsiderate, by hogging the machine space while other people are waiting? Or is Person 2 more inconsiderate, by messing with someone else's stuff instead of being more patient?

Short & long answers both welcome. Maybe mention where you're from, in case the standards turn out to vary by country/region.
