I can't speak for your mom, but my mother would never forgive me if I was wearing underwear like this when the ambulance picked me up!
What are people thinking who donate items like these? Maybe something like: "Well, it's better than nothing." Or "This would be good enough for those people."
Mr. B.E. remarked, "That's not the worst I've seen. At least this underwear is clean." So as not to gross out my gentle readers, we will now draw the curtain on the ensuing underwear incident that Mr. B.E. related from his volunteering past.
So, this concludes my Andy-Rooney-grumpy-rant (sans his endearing humor). Thanks, Everyone, for listening. [Hey, this is a lot cheaper than therapy!]
