Two Questions for a Friday Morning

Neighbor: I just took your clothes out of the dryer. I’m not sure they were dry. But they were done.
Me: Um…OK.

Question #1: In dryer parlance, don’t “dry” and “done” mean the same thing?*

Question #2: Do you often leave the house and realize halfway to work that your pressed shirt is clinging to your recently showered body and that your hair is dripping onto your New York Times?

I guess it’s possible that the word “dryer” means, “A machine that will render clothing dryer,” rather than the writer’s assumed meaning, “A machine that will render clothing dry.” Maybe. Could be. Maybe.
