    Enough is too much!

    Last weekend my wife packed up two large boxes to send to her family in the Philippines. Now, I get that they can use all the help they can get. I sure have no trouble understanding why she would send them all our babies’ clothes that she wore once and doesn’t fit in anymore. I can even justify why she would send them my 120v cordless drill even though they have 220v. But why…. Why why why why why would she pack up my used underwear to send them?! WTF?!

    Is it me, or is that just way wrong?

    My wife used to work with a Russian girl who collected used Diaphragms to send back to Russia.

    Makes your skid marked undies look ok to me.

    Well, first of all, I know that your wife is tiny, but she really should stop wearing your baby's clothes.

    I'm in agreement with you that this is disgusting. For goodness sake, go to Walmart and buy them fresh undies if it's something they need.

    One US$ is worth 45 of their pesos. I say, send them the cash and let them buy what they need. There is something about packing up a bunch of junk and paying to have it sent half around the world that seems like a waste to me. If we sent them the money it cost us to ship it, they could fill twice as many boxes as we sent.
    And never ever send someone used undies! Pa..lease...!

    I read where men's thongs are scarce in some parts of the world. Of course I could donate some of mine but they might mistake them for parasails.

    I cannot believe you said this. It is a mental picture that will take years to wipe out of my head.

    I had to look 'diaphragms' because i didnt know what that was, never heard that word used for that. What someone would do with used 'diaphragms' is beyond me...

    Other than that, nothing wrong with clean used underwear. right?
