The shocking truth behind the missing knickers
小婦入廁內褲不見了 真相令她崩潰

A young woman, wanting to go out to get her dinner, was suddenly caught short. The problem was, there was only one bathroom in the house, and her husband was inside sitting on the toilet, so she had no choice but to squat in the shower. In the end, however, she decided it would be better to go and use the toilet in the nearby convenience store.

As she was getting ready to put on her pants and walk out the door, she discovered that her underwear had gone missing. As she was worried that the ready-meal store was about to close, she frantically started looking around. She lifted up her pants, but her knickers weren’t underneath; she checked the sofa, but they weren’t there, either. Had she dropped them on the floor? She got down on the floor, but couldn’t see them. Had she taken them into the bathroom? She went in and asked her husband, but he said he hadn’t seen them.

She could only put on another pair and rush out of the house. The strange thing was, when she got onto the street, people kept looking at her, all the way until she had bought her ready-meal, when the store owner said to her: “Miss, in a minute have a look at your hat, and see if there is anything swinging back and forth up there.” It was only when she got back that she discovered her knickers had got stuck in her hood. How embarrassing.

(Liberty Times, Translated By Paul Cooper)

一名少婦去買晚餐前突然很想尿尿,但是家中只有一間廁所,老公又在裡面大號,只好到廁所內的淋浴間蹲著尿,但後來決定到家裡附近的便利商店上廁所。

正當她準備穿褲子出門時,竟然發現自己的內褲不見了,因為擔心便當店快關了,開始瘋狂地找。拿起褲子,沒被壓住;檢查沙發,上面也沒有;有沒有掉在地上?趴下去看也沒有;有拿進廁所嗎?進去問先生,他說沒看到。

她只好重新穿上一條匆忙出門,奇怪的是,一路上一直有人盯著她看,直到買完便當,便當店老闆娘才跟她說:「小姐,你等一下檢查你的帽子,有沒有東西晃來晃去」,回去後才發現自己的內褲竟然卡在帽兜上,實在好糗。
