Just a couple things I'd like to mention

1. Don't purchase undergarments at the thrift store. I hope I don't have to explain why. Do you really want to share panties? There are so, so many reasons why this is bad. You don't have to do it even if you are really struggling financially. You can get bras and panties at Walmart, Target or even places like Forever 21 or Rue 21 for super, super cheap AND no one else's cooch has inhabited them before. These places have sales going on all of the time. I've paid .99 cents many times for NEW, never before been used panties (TMI).

2. Take mace (pepper spray) with you for the weirdos. I'm fresh out, but there have been times when I've been approached by some desperate idiot pretending to be selling something or crying that his car is broken down. Just smile politely (if you can even do that) and walk away. I've had some interesting times. Some people are just different but you never know when you will come face-to-face with a sociopath. I'm not talking the sociopaths we work with or are related to either. I'm not really worried about being out of mace; I go on Saturdays mostly when there are always a ton of people out. I went on a Sunday morning once and I'll never go again. It was one of those mornings where my intuition was screaming for me to leave the thrift store and I gladly obliged. I'm not afraid of firmly telling some douche-nozzle NO!!! either. I can also give out a really nasty side-eye too.

i like used undies! i wear them on my head all the time and dance around! jk - i need mace - when i got home after work the other day i was getting out of my car when some guy was standing right there i almost tipped him over and he was in an army uniform and asked me if i had gas - i looked back at my butt to see if maybe i shit or something but he was all no gas for my car i ran out. i told him no and locked my car and walked off. i felt bad but today you can NOT trust anyone especially a man in uniform - he could have stole it from someone and is some psycho killer. it sounds mean not to help him out but i was by myself if the hubby was there we could have helped. AND who have you been using the mace on since you are out?? this is a very very long comment - you should feel special that its from me.

Cherice, you have no idea how special I feel with the novel of a comment you left but I never get to see you anymore so I'm glad you did. I don't blame you for not helping. As women when we are alone and out and about we have to be cautious. That man shoul have never approached you like that. Unfortunately chances are he didn't need gas. I'm glad that's all he asked and left you alone.

I never understood why people would buy used underwear for the same reason...get it cheaper and cleaner new...that should be some cheap underwear company's motto.

I find that speaking in a made up foreign language also helps people leave you alone...throw in a twitch and they wont even follow you.
