To be relieved that someone else is obviously as slatternly as I am (knicker related)(38 Posts)
You know when you rush out of the house wearing yesterday's jeans and then wonder if you've put them on with yesterday's knickers inside because there's a suspicious bump which might be slipping its way down one leg?
No? Obviously not as slatternly as me, then but if it's 'yes' read on...
We were at a big event with dd at the weekend. We were going in and out of a hall where the event was held throughout the day. and my heart sank when I saw knickers in the middle of the floor which looked very like one of my best pairs. Earlier on, I'd felt that suspicious bump in the leg which I'd ignored.
Anyway, on spotting the knickers-which-might-have-been-mine, I had to decide, and quick, whether to:
a) surreptitously pick them up
b) kick them to one side and maybe pick them up later
c) ignore them
I did c), and then confessed to dd and dh later that evening (who'd walked out after me and seen them, as would everyone who'd walked past) that I thought they were mine.
Dd helpfully pointed out I'd probably been caught on CCTV with the aforesaid undergarments dropping out around my foot.
Anyway, I looked in my sports bag this evening, and the knickers were there! So, someone else is as slatternly as I am, and I'm delighted. Also, I didn't stoop to pick up another minger's knickers.
This is a great thread!! Nothing lke this has ever happened to me (god knows how!!!) but now I'm wondering if this is where all the random socks that lie about in the street come from haha!
The days I go swimming I put my cossie half on under my jeans and pull it on the rest of the way when I'm in the changing room at the pool.
The other day when I did this I found that one cup seemed to be bigger and lumpier than the other. On investigation I found a large handkerchief had insinuated itself into the lining at some point in the washing cycle.
Not ever had that knicker problem though. But when I was in my late teens my mum once handed me a pair of mine that she'd found on the sitting room floor one morning
Not quite the same, but once as a student I was cycling home from sports practice wearing small lycra shorts (those were the days) and had to stop suddenly when some
pillock one pulled out in front of me. I came off the saddle and smash into the cross bar (ouch!). Legs a bit sore, but never mind, I think.
Stopped off at Tesco to pick something up and noticed a few people looking at my oddly - figured it was because I was in gym kit and looked a bit scuzzy. Then a lovely little old lady finally plucked up the courage to whisper, 'My dear, I think you're having ladies' troubles'.
Looked down and the inside of my thigh was covered in blood from scraping on bike! I'd been walking all around the supermarket apparently freely menstruating!!
When I was 12, I was in school one day and we started to notice a used sanitary towel creeping its way out of the teacher's jeans pocket. It didn't fall all the way out as it was half stuck to her leg. One of the girls went up and whispered it to her and she jumped up and started shouting at us all "Who put that there"
Then she ran out of the room to sort herself out. We had no sympathy though...she used to sit on on of the girls desks while reading, pick her nose and rub it under the desk
But Mamhaf .... if they weren't your knicks, what was the "suspicious bump" you'd felt on your leg earlier in the evening ??!!
Great thread... I'm alternately and and
Never done this as I am of the strange breed who usually sleeps in pants.
But if I don´t, I take trousers/jeans & pants off seperately.
are you sure you didnt have two pairs op?
and i have done this, on the way to the launderette fortunately, although i had crossed a busy road withthem probably hanging outof thebottom of my jeans,
then i just had to scoop into the rest of the dirty washing.
Hubby was doing the weekly shop at the supermarket one busy saturday morning and the checkout lad was helping help him pack with our 'bags for life', the lad suddenly pulled out a pair of my red lacy knickers out of the bag with much hilarity and joshing until hubby whispered that they were probably not clean , he then dropped them pretty fast! The moral is don't store your shopping bags in the hall where you throw the washing downstairs!
Just rememebered another one (am careless me)
Quite a few years ago I was staying at my Aunties for a few nights, as were my Grandparents. When I got there I went upstairs to 'unpack' (My cousin was about 5 at the time and was super excited that I was staying in his room, and wanted to show me where I could put my stuff)
Anyway, the dog wandered in the room, decided nothing was happening, and wandered off again. When I finally persuaded my cousin I knew where everything was, and went downstairs my Gramps handed me a very tiny thong (I think it said sexy bitch or similar on) said 'the dog bought this down, I think it's yours' then made an excuse to go upstairs. I'm not sure who was more embarassed!
Yes, I have been pondering the bump I thought I felt.
The thing is, without checking, you never know if it's your imagination...a bit like wondering (tmi coming up) if you actually did put that tampon in or not and having to find a loo to check. Usually it's all in place.
Because I've done the knicker-in-jeans thing a few times (but discovered it before embarrassment), I now think i'm transporting a spare when I'm not.
At least, that's my story. Only the CCTV would tell, and I'm not about to ask for it under data protection.
When I get changed into my swimwear I make sure I put my knickers in my trouser pocket and button it down because TWICE I've dropped my knickers on a campsite on my way to the shower block. One time a group of people were taking the piss out this forlorn pair of knickers laying on the grass and my 16 year old s elfcould only feign ignorance and join in.
There is also a high chance of one of the kids digging through the bag and pulling my undies out so all the more reason to hide my knickers.
