It’s not just sad, but also embarrassing to be caught with a call girl on your honeymoon. A 21-year-old man was caught soliciting illicit substances while he was on his honeymoon vacation.
His clueless wife couldn’t find him at the hotel and reported him missing at the station — unaware that he was in police custody. Poor, lady!
Ever considered a honeymoon vacation in a third-world country? These lovebirds from Northern Ireland are currently spending their honeymoon in India. While India is an extremely interesting destination with a rich history, this couple is hardly used to the lifestyle, culture, and cuisine.
So, with that, it doesn’t come as a huge shock that the OP’s wife has already vomited on the side of the road. It’s just a bummer that it had to be on the OP’s birthday!
An Unforgettable Night…
Waiting until your wedding day to be intimate with your partner can be truly special but, it can also end in disaster. And we think this newlywed couple would agree.
The wife didn’t realize she had a mild latex allergy. Apart from that, she didn’t even know that she should pee after being intimate so she ended up getting rushed to the ER for a kidney infection!
The Honeymooners Curse
This story was posted by a friend of two different couples that had two different — but equally horrible — honeymoon experiences. The first set of friends came down with Legionnaires’ disease while vacationing in an old sultan’s palace.
The other duo went on a dream safari honeymoon when the wife had an allergic reaction and a seizure so severe that she broke a couple of vertebrae! Perhaps this OP should skip their honeymoon altogether unless they too want to experience the Honeymooners Curse!
My Best Friend’s Wedding: The Failure
Who would you take on your honeymoon? Definitely not your parents. How about your best friend? Still a big no. This couple thought otherwise. The bride decided that it would be a fun idea to take her best friend on their honeymoon.
She probably didn’t think it would be fun to catch her husband and best friend engaged in some x-rated activities. Yes, the unthinkable happened. We can only imagine how the bride must have felt…
We Are Family
What throws you on the verge of separation? Distance or over-sharing? This couple was offered a beach house by the groom’s grandparents for a week of honeymooning. When they arrived, though, they weren’t alone.
It wasn’t just the newlyweds and grandparents — it was over 20 relatives cooped up in a three-bedroom house. The OP wanted to book a hotel room but her husband didn’t want to offend anyone. They were later shamed for taking a walk on the beach and not spending enough time with the family.
Along Came Polly?
What’s more important, going on a cruise or grieving? This guy knows. A newly-wed couple was set to take a cruise for their honeymoon. The wife leaves a day before to catch up with friends. The next day arrives, and the wife is nowhere to be found.
Guess where she is? Canoodling with another guy. It’s weird because she could have just said no at the altar — that would have saved money and time. Even so, the husband decided to go on the cruise anyway. Good for him!
Dream Turned Nightmare
How amazing does a 14-day European honeymoon sound? We know — that would be a dream come true. What if we told you that you could have that honeymoon, but along with a case of kidney stones? Would you still want to go on that trip? The OP was admitted to the hospital days before their flight, and all thanks to kidney stones.
She wasn’t healed by the time the honeymoon rolled around and so, she spent an eight-hour flight either puking or peeing every 10 minutes. Thinking that it was over, the wife then suffered from yet another kidney stone after they landed — and then she got bronchitis!
This post-wedding nuptial is just sad. Despite the fact that they planned the whole trip to a tee, life can be quite unexpected. The bride got sick, their car broke down, and the grandmother passed away.
They ended up going home early to recuperate, and it’s a good thing they did because they were able to give themselves a “do-over” for their anniversary the next year.
Straight Out of a Movie
After this couple’s experience, they probably never wanted to travel again! The two planned a romantic trip to Thailand. While on a drive around the city, the driver had a surprise for them.
He tried to rob them. The couple acted instinctually, with the wife smashing a bottle over the driver’s head. The husband then wrestled the knife out of the driver’s hand, and the newlyweds made a run for it. They ended up leaving the island the next day.
Should Have Held onto That Pole
This post doesn’t come from the couple’s POV, or even a friend. It comes from a random bystander that was in Mexico with her family when she saw a young couple that looked quite shaken up. A young woman seemed to be crying and behind her, a distraught man.
As they were being escorted by security and a medical team, the OP noticed that they were both full of bruises and cuts. It turns out that they had fallen off the balcony! Ouch!
The Cruise Ship Chronicles
It sounds like this young couple ran into one thing after another on this cruise ship. And despite that fact, it seems as though they kept a pretty good attitude about it all considering that the OP and her husband couldn’t help but laugh.
There’s no denying that their honeymoon kept them on their toes — especially when it came to getting chased by a homeless guy at one of the ports.
Ever Heard of Knocking?
Have you ever had the hotel staff come into your room before you’ve checked out of the hotel? While room service is something we all enjoy, none of us want the cleaners to enter without warning.
While this couple was honeymooning their way to nirvana, a hotel maid decided to barge in — two hours before check-out! The bride acted fast and called shots on the blanket. As for the husband, well, he was on display.
Welcome to Minturn, Colorado!
What is the worst thing that can happen if your car engine breaks down in the middle of the highway? This couple might have a thing or two to say. The two spent a fabulous week in Colorado, but on their way home, their old Pontiac broke down.
They checked into a room at a cheap motel and that’s where things went downhill. Not only was their door missing a lock, but they also saw another room sealed off with police tape. Sketchy…
A Not-So Picture-Perfect Moment
What would you do if your partner unintentionally cleared your entire gallery of honeymoon photos? If you’re somewhat like this OP, then you definitely cherish these picture-perfect moments.
And so, if your husband or wife accidentally wiped your photo album clean, then you’d probably be a little upset. Let’s just hope this little mishap didn’t ruin their whole honeymoon.
20 Years Later
How do you fight in an era without cell phones? This couple knows. You go for a drive so you can have some time to think and, of course, you pick up some Taco Bell.
Then, you eat both the burrito you got for yourself and the one you got for your SO — ya know, because you’re mad at them. Clearly, that method works for this couple because they’re still together 20 years later.
A Shotgun Wedding
We’ve all heard of shotgun weddings — a wedding that’s arranged in order to avoid embarrassment due to an unintended pregnancy.
Although they got the timing of their wedding down perfectly, we can’t say the same for their honeymoon. Babies should be allowed to go on their parents’ postnuptial holiday.
Grab Them Snow Boots
Ever had a weather disaster during a vacation? In this case, it’s the couple’s honeymoon, but at least they tried to make the most of it. Their honeymoon started with 12 inches of snow.
And because of that, the city of San Antonio was essentially shut down. The honeymoon then ended with an infection in the OP’s parotid gland!
The Terminal: Lost in Italy
How expensive a mistake is it to overlook an itinerary? This couple can tell you considering that they missed their flight.
Even so, despite the fact that they had to spend more time and money traveling around Siena, Italy, it ended up being the best part of their trip! We guess that not every honeymoon story on this list ends in horror!
Accidents are a common phenomenon for tourists. This, however, is just weird. The couple rented a scooter. After roaming around through the towns for 30 minutes, the husband yells that there’s a cement truck headed their way.
The wife then ends up driving them into a ditch — and with that came a broken leg. It turns out that the cement truck was actually a motorbike pulling a cart full of cement.
You Can’t Make This Stuff Up
This, here, is everything you can imagine to go wrong. Then again, you know what they say — ‘when it rains, it pours!’
Despite the fact that this couple encountered a never-ending list of issues during their honeymoon, it seems like their love is everlasting. They have been married for 17 years, after all!
A Case of the Pox
This OP is totally right — he and his wife really did have a disaster of a honeymoon. From the sounds of it, this husband was quite naïve when he exchanged vows. It sounds like his wife has a stellar sense of humor, though.
After an awkward encounter and a good laugh, this couple spent their honeymoon with the groom’s parents… where he nursed the chickenpox and she sunbathed by the pool. 14 years later and they’re happier than ever!
While most wrong paths lead to murder, this one definitely did not. A couple was driving through the mountains when they realized that they had taken the path unknown. They ended up getting stuck in a muddy field with almost no gas. Since they couldn’t see petrol stations around, they turned off the engine and coasted downhill.
On the bright side, the scenery was breathtaking — and although the OP claims that she would never do it again, she also says that it was a once-in-a-lifetime experience!
Tour de Europe
A woman shares the events of her own honeymoon in 2001 through Belgium, Italy, and France. They began in Belgium visiting the North Sea where they were attacked by sand fleas. We don’t mean a few bites but, in reality, itchy bumps that covered the OP and her husband from head-to-toe.
They then rode the hottest train on Earth that also happens to be windowless — which wouldn’t necessarily be a problem if the train wasn’t filled with smokers. At least Italy would be better… or so they thought. It turns out that Genoa was on lockdown due to the G8 summit. Yikes!
Talk about awkward! We bet that, when this couple was headed for their honeymoon, they weren’t expecting to get stopped by security for a suspicious object.
What could it have been? A sharp object? A liquid product? Perhaps a lighter? Kids, check your luggage before you reach the airport. You don’t want your “intimates” getting confiscated in front of the rest of the passengers and crew.
Throw Caution to the Wind
Is your marriage hurricane-proof? This couple’s relationship certainly is! If you’re not from a region that experiences hurricanes, these kinds of storms can definitely be a little frightening.
And while this may not have been the most ideal of honeymoons, we’re just happy that this OP and her husband stayed safe!
Listen to Your Wife
When is the best time to say, “I told you so”? Before or after your husband goes into surgery? This story only further proves that all men should listen to their wives!
Despite the bride telling him not to go on a risky bike ride, the husband went anyway. And what happened? He fell and broke his collarbone. Although there was a surgeon in Spain who agreed to operate on the OP’s husband, he was too afraid — and thus, they flew back home on the third day of their honeymoon to have the surgery.
California, Here We Come
How expensive can one mistake turn out to be? This couple found out the hard way. They were thrilled to be leaving for their once-in-a-lifetime honeymoon to Costa Rica. Everything from hotels to transportation was planned beforehand.
All flights were paid for, and the couple’s only job was to simply relax. The only problem is that the two realized on the plane that their flight was taking them to San Jose, California rather than San Jose, Costa Rica. California’s not so bad, though.
Do women ever plan their wedding around their period? This OP didn’t and what a mistake that turned out to be.
Not only did she have to deal with all the period symptoms throughout her wedding and honeymoon, but she also ended up with a UTI by the end of the trip. Poor thing!
What happens if the airline loses your bag and you end up grabbing the wrong one? You hope that someone else doesn’t somehow find your luggage!
This couple lost their luggage, and although it ended up in the supervisor’s office, they were missing everything — from their toiletries to their shoes and even their adult toys! We’re just happy no one else ended up with their suitcase!
Where would you go for a honeymoon if you only had $1,000? These lovebirds decided to go on a cruise, though they wouldn’t necessarily call themselves ‘cruise people.’ Still, they were excited about the nature park excursion.
The night before the excursion, however, the wife wakes up with a high fever and horrible cough. So, they ended up spending the rest of their trip in the infirmary. Let’s just hope their five-year anniversary makes up for this honeymoon disaster!
Release & Return
Would you take your pets with you on your honeymoon? This couple didn’t and it turned out to be the worst mistake they had ever made. The duo left their two dogs with the wife’s parents with numerous instructions. Five days into their honeymoon, they received a call that the dogs left the night before and never came back.
Apparently, the OP’s mother had tried this ‘release and return’ method before — despite her daughter’s specific instructions to always keep an eye on them.
Falling in Love Abroad
Nowadays, with how easy it is to travel around the world, it’s fairly common to fall in love with someone abroad. Still, just because the heart wants what it wants doesn’t mean that reality will coincide. Take this exotic couple, for instance.
Because the OP is from the states and her husband is from India, they have to deal with certain challenges in terms of residency and visas — so much so, in fact, that the wife spent their honeymoon alone while her husband was left to deal with paperwork and documentation.
This next honeymoon horror story is written in present time as the OP’s brother just got married. He’s currently honeymooning with his now-wife. He’s having a wonderful time vacationing abroad.
Little does he know that he’s coming home to some horrible news. We’re sure that this OP feels horrible as it is so let’s just hope that this doesn’t cause any rifts in this sibling relationship!
Enduring the Storm
Ever witnessed a natural disaster on your honeymoon? A couple from Stockholm and their baby set out for a four-month-long honeymoon vacation. Let’s just say that they didn’t expect to be hit with six natural disasters.
It all began with severe snowstorms in Germany followed by a cyclone in Australia — not to mention the 6.3-magnitude earthquake in New Zealand and a dangerous tsunami in Asia. This honeymoon was so intense that the couple’s story was featured in their hometown’s newspaper!
This honeymoon story is just tragic. A British couple went on a tropical beach honeymoon to Seychelles 10 days after tying the knot. While the wife sunbathed on the beach, the husband decided to go snorkeling.
Unfortunately, the 30-year-old man got attacked by a shark. While most people say he died instantly, rescuers still pulled him out and tried to save him.
This is one fast and furious honeymoon. A couple was arrested at Birmingham Airport while they were on the way to their honeymoon flight. The 24-year-old husband was arrested for stealing from his former workplace.
It looks like the flight isn’t the only thing they are going to miss. Let’s just hope that this guy has cleaned up his act since getting arrested!
No Sign of Existence
What’s worse than a scam hotel? A hotel that denies your existence. This is the story of a newlywed CNN reporter and his bride. The hotel they booked had no record of their reservation, so they were forced to sleep in the lobby.
Their private beach didn’t feel so private as there were dealers constantly harassing them. That wasn’t all. The husband actually found a bone that the police couldn’t verify. Then, they had to take shelter from a storm for three hours. Doesn’t sound like a great honeymoon.
We’ve all been victims of online scams. These lovebirds were in for a $2,000 sham. The two spent lavishly on a honeymoon package in Gambia — which included flights, vaccinations, and much more. After they stepped into the hotel, they found a dirty room, a faulty AC unit, and an unhygienic bathroom.
When they left the room, they were hassled by the staff for money. When they realized just changing the hotel wouldn’t be enough, they booked two $600 tickets home the next day and left.
Welcome to Your Future
Where do you draw the line when it comes to mothers-in-law? Let’s hear the story of this newlywed couple. The bride is touching up in the bathroom when she hears the hotel room door open. Unfortunately, it’s not her new husband that’s returned but her mother-in-law.
Apparently, the MIL had a fight with her husband and decides to bunk up with the newly married couple. So, she spends the night on the couch two meters away from their bed. And this was after a heated argument over not letting the MIL sleep in the same bed as her son on the night of his wedding.
Thrift Store Workers Share the Weirdest Items They’ve Found in Donation Bins
Working at Goodwill may have its perks, but most times, you wish you had a different job. As we shall reveal in this article, there seems to be no limit to the amount of weird, crazy, and unusual items that people who work at Goodwill often find while sorting through the donation piles. While you may occasionally chance upon something valuable, most of the time you are likely to curse the day you chose to work for them.
Donating Your Mom
In certain contexts, donating your mom could simply be a euphemistic way of saying that you put your mom in a retirement home. However, as some of you may have guessed already, this isn’t the case here.
Apparently, this gentleman, for some inexplicable reason, surrendered an urn containing his mother’s ashes. We can only assume what went on between those two while the mother was still alive, but we don’t intend to pry on anyone’s private business. Hey, do you think she wrote him out of her will?
Honestly, we had no idea that there’s a factory somewhere in the world that makes fake stuffed animals. While we think it’s a noble thing to do, because this means no animals are actually hurt in the process, you still have to admit that it’s weird.
However, we’re concerned with that employee’s decision to buy the thing and keep it for 15 years. Did they also put pictures of them hunting elephants in Africa? We’re quite confused.
We never thought that we would actually have to put this into words but — why would you possibly want to bring food items to donation bins? We have nothing against bringing dried or canned goods to the food kitchen but that’s not the same as bringing a three-month-old cheesecake to a donation bin.
Why on Earth would anyone do that? We were grossed out, as was that poor employee at the donation center who had to clear it away. Oh, the humanity!
The Enigma Was Resolved
If you ever watched The Imitation Game, starring Benedict Cumberbatch, you probably know what an Enigma Machine is. For those of you who didn’t watch it, an Enigma Machine was a device that enabled the German military to exchange encrypted messages without having to worry about the allies finding out about their plans, during WWII.
When the war ended, these machines were seized by the allies. Today, these machines can be normally spotted in war museums, mainly in Europe and the United States.
Live animals, like fresh food items, are something you shouldn’t put in a donation bin under any circumstances. Alright, we get it, this random person probably realized that taking care of a hamster isn’t easy as it may seem. While these little fluffy creatures are cute, they do require a lot of attention.
For example, you have to clean their cage twice a day unless you want your house to smell. In any case, just bring them to an animal shelter, but never to a donation center.
Finding an 80-year-old bottle of perfume inside a picnic basket makes us wonder if there’s a romantic story behind it. The cynics among you may just say that it got there by accident. If you’re a cynic yourself, we suggest you move on to the next item on this list.
For the rest of us — the hopeless romantics — just imagine that this bottle of perfume was left in the picnic basket on purpose. It was a gift from a soldier to his sweetheart who went to war but never came back.
In case you haven’t figured it out yet, we’re completely against animal cruelty. This means we don’t support the following story, but we had to share it nonetheless. So, people in the past thought that killing an animal and using its hide to make a rug was a good idea.
Somebody else thought that it was a good idea to bring that dead rug to the donation center. At least the employee’s daughter was happy because she got her goatskin rug. Humans… go figure.
Frog in a Rocking Chair
This is one more weird thing that we don’t get. Somebody found a taxidermied frog sitting in a tiny chair. A taxidermic, for your information, is the “art” of stuffing real-life, dead animals. Apparently, people have a thing with taking frogs, stuffing them, and then creating all kinds of crazy “artworks” with them.
So, someone chanced upon a frog sitting in a tiny chair. Just another day in the office, you see. That person actually mailed it to their friend, as a gift. We will say it again — people are weird.
Not My Luggage
Donating your old suitcase sounds like a reasonable thing to do. They served you well on your various trips around the globe (assuming you took those) or in your cross-country journeys, and now, it’s time to pass them on. What you shouldn’t do, however, is leave used needles in them.
We seriously hope nothing happened to the person who chanced upon spotting them. Used needles could carry dangerous diseases. Next time, maybe use a pair of gloves or wear an entire hazmat suit for extra safety.
Antique Victorian Underwear
They say that Victorian times were the coolest in England. Just think about all those fancily dressed ladies and gentlemen going about their daily businesses. Men used to wear top hats and monocles, women wore petticoat dresses and everyone seemed to be so genteel.
No surprise this guy’s mom wanted to keep this piece of Victorian undergarment to herself. While we definitely find it amusing, we are pretty certain, however, that we know what Queen Victoria would say about it — “We are not amused!”
Rest in Peace
You better sit down before you start reading this. No, nobody (as far as we know) has ever put a corpse in a donation bin, but the next thing you are about to read would probably be the closest to it — a lock of hair, attached to a death certificate.
Quite shocking, isn’t it? This item honestly made us squirm in our seats. We wonder if the lock of hair did belong to the person whose name was on the certificate. On second thought, we don’t want to know.
This is just exasperating. People should be prohibited from donating half-used items that aren’t really worth the effort spent on getting them in the first place. Anyone can get candles if they need to because they aren’t that expensive.
Why would they bother going to a charity shop to get half-used candles for half a price? We want to make a silly little joke here since the occasion merits it — if you get half-used candles, does it mean that your room will only be half-lit?
Apparently, it’s actually a real thing. People donate their old journals to charity shops. The thought of someone else reading our most private thoughts makes us cringe, but we don’t judge, of course. Actually, if a journal can’t be traced back to the person who wrote it, this might make the whole thing more tolerable.
In any case, we are kinda curious to find out what was written in some of these journals. What unrequited loves, miseries, and woes were neatly recorded only to be read by someone else? Drama, please!
Letters to the Town Council
This is hilarious, especially if our guess is true. We bet that the person behind these letters is an old lady living with 25 cats in a dilapidated house at the edge of town. Who else would bother writing letters to the town council and then also thank them for doing what they were asked for?
Actually, who sends physical letters these days anyway? What year are we living in? 1955? You do have to admit, however, that old-fashioned letters work better than emails, so it seems at least.
High School Diplomas
For those of you who didn’t get a chance to finish high school for various reasons (we don’t judge!), there seems to be an easy solution to this problem. Just go to the nearest thrift shop and pick a high school diploma that is to your liking.
We’re kidding, but this is definitely one of those extremely unusual items that people are likely to find in a thrift store. Why would you want to get your high school diploma anyway if your high school days are over?
Snakes are definitely not the first animal that comes to mind when you think of pets. Some people, however, would disagree as they do keep snakes as pets in their houses. The problem usually begins when you can’t find your pet snake. Just imagine the frightening realization that your little slippery friend is nowhere to be found.
Something similar happened to this guy who couldn’t find his snake and donated his couch. Looks like his snake was hibernating when the coach was donated. At least this didn’t happen in someone else’s house.
This is more comic than weird. Sometimes, we miss opportunities simply because they don’t present themselves as such. Looks like this is what happened to this someone’s grandfather who chanced upon a vase that belonged to the famous Spanish artist Picasso.
Picasso’s works of art are sold today for millions of dollars, because you can’t really argue about someone’s taste in art — and what would appear as an “ugly vase” for one person would be worth millions to another, apparently.
In our series of morbid items, this one beats all the previous ones that we mentioned, and could easily make its way into a detective story. A human skull washes up in a charity store one day and no one knows to whom it belongs.
The workers then alert the police who link the skull to an active murder investigation. This is really as creepy as it gets because sometimes reality beats fiction. And who said that working for a charity can’t be exciting?
Old uniforms, especially those that belonged to armed forces of other nations, aren’t something you’d normally expect to find in a donation bin. Finding a pair of uniforms that belonged to a member of a paramilitary organization is even weirder.
The SS stands for Schutzstaffel, “protection organization” in German. Members of the SS were responsible for the many atrocities committed during WWII. The person who brought them must have obtained them in Europe — maybe even during the war.
Pee Wee League Doppelganger
This poor person found a pee wee baseball league plaque with their name and photo on it. Judging by their reaction, it seems like they didn’t remember being photographed (or perhaps even giving their consent) for their photo to feature in the plaque. When they tried obtaining it, it was too late.
Did this even happen? Was it part of a dream? What if this was a message from the other side? This gave us the creeps. It’s like finding a letter signed under your name, but noticing that the date hasn’t happened yet.
Don’t Turn it On
Finding a fully functional industrial infrared laser is something that’s definitely on our wishlist (not really). What we actually mean here is that this is so random. In any case, this laser has the “charming ability” to cause permanent blindness.
No wonder that the contact person from the company that manufactured it offered money to get it off the streets. At least this wasn’t a nuclear device that went missing and turned up at some random thrift shop, right?
We thought that we were already clear about not putting fresh food products in the donation bin. Looks like someone ignored our request. This is even worse than the cheesecake we mentioned earlier. Who would in their right mind put goat milk in the donation bin?
Were you hoping that it would turn into gourd by the time someone picked it up? We really pity the person who had to clean it after it, apparently, it was spilled all over the floor.
Watch Your Head
The French Revolution called — they want their guillotine back. We were joking, but Marry Auntouanet wasn’t, so it seems. We’re pushing the envelope here, perhaps even a little too much. This fake guillotine (of the kind that’s used in magic shows) was donated for some reason.
Also, unless you’re a professional magician, why would you keep that thing in the first place? We’re kinda curious about its dimensions and wonder if it had fake blood on it too.
Bible for the Deaf
Wait for it to sink. Got it? No? Why would a deaf person need a special bible? They’re not blind, just deaf. No, you don’t need to speak louder Carolle, use sign language. In any case, we find it hilariously stupid.
Not the act of donation itself, but the fact that someone in the world was dumb enough to print a “special” bible for the deaf, written in Braille. Looks like they entirely missed the point there.
In case you were wondering what a fluke 561 is — just as we were — let’s begin by saying that this isn’t some super-secret laser weapon that was stolen from Area 51, despite its cool name. It’s a (super cool nonetheless) laser thermometer.
Too bad we can’t say the same thing about the person who donated it, however. Even though this means that we wouldn’t be able to tell you this story. In any case, this is clearly a dumb reason to donate such a cool item.
Evacuate the Building
Ammunition and weapons sometimes get stolen or lost. This becomes a real problem if they are accidentally forgotten among items that are donated to Goodwill. Luckily, no one got injured in this incident because, apparently, this mortar shell was empty. This means that it had no actual fuse at its tip.
We wonder how it got to the person who donated it in the first place. Did they just keep it as a souvenir from their days in the military?
Near Perfect Tent
Sometimes, items that are donated to charity come in an almost pristine condition. This was (almost) the case with this item. It could have been a perfect tent, except that someone accidentally (we hope!) forgot their… feces-filled underwear.
This extremely gross incident proves that there is no limit to the crazy (and disgusting) things people can do sometimes. We wish not to contemplate the various reasons that brought someone to such a low that made them use their underwear as toilet paper.
Louis Vuitton’s New Bag
Admit it, you coveted a Louis Vitton bag at least once in your life. It’s alright, we did too. This Reddit user confessed that they almost got what they wanted (for their sister-in-law), as their mother worked for Goodwill. The only catch was that this Louis Vuitton bag had a scary surprise in it — five human teeth.
We always knew that people who buy designers clothes usually hide a few skeletons in their clothes. We suggest you check if any of those skeletons have five missing teeth by any chance.
Think of the following three items — old leather work gloves, blood-stained clothes, and big dark sunglasses. What’s the first association that comes to mind? An unsolved murder investigation? No? That’s our educated guess.
The only misleading thing here is that these three items were found in a grocery bag. This could be an attempt to create an alibi. We don’t buy that (got it?), but we pity the person who had to sort these items. Somebody call Sherlock Holmes.
Keeping a potpourri in your room sounds like a good idea, especially if you get it at a cheap price from a charity shop. This potpourri, however, seems to be more of the explosive type.
We don’t know who designed this particular potpourri warmer, but they clearly didn’t do a basic course in physics or chemistry. Even without having a basic background in science, however, they should have known better. Unfortunately, it seems like (the absence of) common sense was the problem in this case.
Sir Walter Scott
For those of you who didn’t grow up reading some of Sir Walter Scott’s works, we would just say that they’re really worth it. This 19th-century Scottish writer and historian is renowned for his extensive historical knowledge and amazing literary talent.
No wonder then that an original version of his work is something we thought was worth mentioning in our article. This is the moment to confess that we envy the Reddit user who got them for $30.
The Eye of Sauron
We know you are disappointed to find out that this item isn’t about someone finding an actual life-size replica of the Eye of Sauron from the Lord of the Rings. This item is actually about something much weirder. This Reddit user’s mom who works for Goodwill brought them a glass eye.
You know, something you would use if you lost one of your eyes (heaven forbid!). We assume, however, that this particular glass eye was indeed in previous use. For this Reddit user’s sake, we hope that he drenched it in bleach before touching it.
Dolls can be a creepy thing. We are not talking about those cute little dolls that you buy for your children (if you have any, we don’t recommend having them, personally), but the creepy ones that you find in dumpsters — used up and old dolls.
Someone, so it seems, was in the habit of collecting headless dolls. This reminded us of Chucky from Child’s Play. We seriously hope that the person who found the dolls didn’t suffer from nightmares afterward.
Frankly, we never understood the concept of snowblowers. This machine supposedly moves snow from one place to another. But, that does this really solve the problem?
There’s still snow — it’s just on the side of the road, so we can understand why this person wished to donate it. However, you have to admit that it’s a rather random thing to donate. Also, if it’s rusty, wouldn’t it be better to just sell it to a scrap yard?
This is ridiculously revolting; we have to admit. Selling half-used toothpaste? Just when we thought that things couldn’t get any worse (just read through this article and you’ll see what we’re talking about here).
This also makes us wonder what kind of person donates a tube of half-used toothpaste. What happened? You suddenly decided that you no longer wish to brush your teeth in the morning? People don’t just stop using toothpaste — unless they stop brushing their teeth altogether. That’s another unresolved mystery.
We have heard too many stories about people buying things at thrift stores or at Goodwill and finding cash hidden in them. This story takes it to a whole new level, though. This Reddit user shares the fact that they found two blank signed checks, along with a bank book.
They didn’t do anything with them because they seemed to be from the ‘80s. We just find the entire affair confusing. Why would anyone sign a blank check and just leave it somewhere?
Cowboys Tupac and Bob Marley
The following will make you raise an eyebrow, or two. Someone painted Tupac and Bob Marley as cowboys riding through the Wild West while escaping a hot pursuit (on horses!). While this sounds like a scene from someone’s dream and obviously never happened in reality (or did it?), we find it really awesome.
We want to shout out to the anonymous master who painted it. We’ve never seen the painting, but we are certain they did a good job there.
While this isn’t exactly a weird item that was found in a charity, we still wanted it here because it brings us good memories of bygone days (can you believe the ‘80s were over four decades ago?!).
We’re surprised that this Reddit user was actually able to turn this Mac on. On second thought actually, this makes sense. Apple computers were built to last (we’ve nothing against Microsoft though!). Oh, the ‘80s.
This item easily gets a spot in our top ten weirdest items that people found at Goodwill. First, We are quite curious to know if this book actually exists (it does, doesn’t it?) and second, we want to meet the author.
We heard their writing style is purrific. It’s obvious that this shirt is part of their marketing campaign, no? What could be a better way to promote a book if not by wearing a shirt with a picture of it?
Call the FBI
A story about finding a bunch of old tech at a thrift store isn’t something that would normally attract our attention — unless it’s government tech that could still be used to tap into government computer systems because somebody didn’t bother to change the configuration settings.
They did a really sloppy job at maintaining information security. In fact, this story reminds us of the iconic 1983 movie WarGames, starring Mattew Broderick. Luckily, we detected no change in the DEFCON level, and all the routers were accounted for.
Orange Prison Jumpsuit
Looks like someone who went out of prison couldn’t part with their prisoner’s uniform, or else why would they keep it? Actually, it’s likely that we have an inmate on the run. We seriously hope this person called 911 as soon as they realized it.
Regardless, it’s funny to think of them bowling while wearing that jumpsuit. We wonder if that can get them arrested or at least taken in for some serious questioning at the local precinct.
A Box With a Surprise
If you think that things can’t get any lower than discovering a pair of dirty underwear in a donated tent, then you better hold on tight. This Goodwill worker had the unfortunate pleasure of discovering a box full of dead rats.
Yes, you’ve read correctly — dead rats. While it’s possible that the careless owner of the box simply didn’t know (or care) about its contents, we still feel bad for the poor employee.
A Different Kind of an Atlas
It’s quite possible that this item was snatched straight from some medical library, otherwise, we have no clue as to why one would want to possibly keep it in the first place.
What’s even more disturbing is that the title suggests that this book offers a colored and possibly graphic visualization of “intestinal parasites.” You know, stomach bugs. We bet that if you read through the entire piece you wouldn’t be able to fall asleep at night.
Houston? Come in Over!
We don’t know if what this Reddit user posted is true, but if it is, this is by far the coolest item on our list here. While it does sound a little specious we have to admit, it’s possible that this may be the case after all.
Maybe they were doing some maintenance work up there and changed their old “remote power control unit” (we have no idea what’s that), which they later put in a donation bin.
Bacon Waist Garter
Well, technically, the donated item was dirty underwear with a bacon-like waist garter, but we couldn’t resist the temptation of not giving it up in the title.
A little more shocking than the other items on this list, dirty underwear probably makes the top 10. Why would somebody on G-d’s green Earth put dirty underwear in a donation bin?
Not all honeymoons are exotic and romantic. Well, they are, but what do you think is the worst that can happen during your honeymoon? The flight getting canceled, the car breaking down, getting lost, the hotel being attacked by zombies? While the part about the zombies may not be true, honeymoon horror stories definitely do exist.
