A charity shop employee is reminding people of what they do and don’t do as a charity, especially when it comes to underwear.
The woman revealed that they come across pairs of used pants and tights with messy crotch all the time, sifting through donations and terming it “disgusting.”
tiktok user expressing his disappointment on social media @Ash&ChelsLifeStories Urged people to reconsider donating their dirty underwear as it is not what charity shops are looking for.
She revealed that she often encounters “skiddy pants” on a regular basis, so she thought it was about time she listed and was not acceptable to pass off as a charity.
In her clip, which has been viewed over 778k times, the staff member said: “I just thought of the coolest idea. As I work in a charity shop, why don’t I do a list of those things? The ones we’ll accept and conquer aren’t ‘acceptable’ so I don’t have to spend 95 percent of my day in knee-length skidi pants.”
“You know what Graham is, you can put ’em in the bin, I’m not your wife,” he said angrily.
“What do you think you’re gonna do? Donate them here and I’m going to wash them, smell them? No, I’m not, no, I’m not. I’m going to throw them in the bin and then about I cry because I just touched your butt.”
Clarifying what charity shops expect when it comes to donating underwear, including hosiery like tights, she continued: “Let’s start. We need clean, brand new underwear — we can sell it. Use your brain.
“What we don’t want is a hole in your underwear that you’ve been wearing for the last 18 years, we don’t want that.
“We’ll accept new tights in packets, but will we accept tights with ladders and thrushes in the crotch? No, we won’t.”
“Disgusting… I know, it sounds disgusting, but it happened,” she revealed.
“It happens, we get it all f***ing time.”
Her post received nearly a thousand comments, with people shocked to hear that dirty underwear is often donated.
“Do people really do this omg,” said one person.
Another posted: “People think charity shops are literally anything and everything, people have no shame.”
The third insisted: “If you won’t buy it, don’t donate it!!!”
The post also attracted fellow charity shop workers who could “relate” and share their horror stories.
One person revealed, “I worked at a charity shop and had donated an unwashed duvet to someone suffering from ulcers. It was heavily stained and smelled like death.”
Another shared, “I volunteered at a charity shop when I was little and the first thing I was taught was crotch check.”
Another claimed: “I worked in a charity shop for 3 years… we could have made a storybook together. The sanitary pad is still in the knees, that’s all I can say.”
The audience for the Women’s Charity Shop series was all, with one person commenting: “As a manager at a charity shop, I’m very drawn to it. I think we have our own sense of trauma from the things we see.” Brand!!”
Meanwhile, the dead Blok pranks with a parcel of dirty ghungroos to ‘sniff’ in the post… but his wife didn’t see the funny side.
In addition, the ex-cleaner earns £50k by selling her used knee, hair and toenail clippings to men, whom she nicknames her ‘pay pigs’, who also pay for her car.
And in the hospital the mother asks her son to bring some neat things and is saddened by what he gives.
