K is for… Knicker Club

Posted on 7th September 2010 in Blog/ chain letter/ gullible/ knickers/ panties/ pyramid/ thong/ tweet

Something that @MrsTeepot tweeted earlier today “Now drowning in thongs!” made an old memory jump into my mind.

A few years ago I was sent a letter inviting me to join a ‘knicker club’ it was one of those ghastly chain-letter-pyramid style thingies where you posted a pair of knickers to the person at the top of the list…. then removed their name and added your own along with details of what size/style you like. The result was meant to be that you would receive 35 pairs of knickers in the post. (I didn’t sound this bad at the time honestly.)

I’m guessing that everyone put ‘Size 8, thong’.

Being a gullible sort I did duly post of a pair of panties (size 8 thong funnily enough) but sadly/fortunately received none in return!

Unless the first rule of Knicker Club is that you can’t talk about Knicker Club, then I have a question for you:

Q. Were any of you ever as gullible or was it just me?!

    Yes I was as gullible as you but it never involved any knickers, just letters and in more recent years I have received them via email for recipes. I did send off a berilliant recipe and never got any back!

    Oh you jogged my memory. I had one of those letters to. I wanted to be as gullible, but I couldn’t afford it. I did stress over it. Interest rates had just hit the high teens & my mortgage was at least £250 more than my take home pay. I was cooking with a lot of dried soya beans – they were dark, cold, alcohol free times. Therefore your non-receipt may be due to me? If so sorry. If it helps now, I do know the location of a little shop that sells the most perfect purple, tie at the side silk knickers. (but no I won’t be sending you any). xxx

      Hello hunnybunny! On my mental to-do list every day I add ’email PF’ but (largely because I never actually write my to-do list down) every day I forget – along with the other 999 things on the list! How are you? Do you have a new twitter name yet? xxx
