“I love my neighbor’s passion,” says Del in Chicago. “This is totally something I would do.”

Hmm, Del. To which of  your two neighbors are you referring?

To the Fucking Asshole that stole all of my underwear: This is the 2nd time that this has happened. Yes, they are nice underwear, yes, they are expensive, but why can't you just go to Cram on Broadway and buy your own?  I am going to do everything in my power to find you, and I'm going to fuck your world up.  I am going to sand paper fist fuck your asshole.  Get ready for a world of pain mother fucker.  Sincerely, Commando

      Sandpaper fist fuck? Some people would pay good money for that kind of action.

      You’d think so, but this place happens to be located more or less in the heart of Boystown, and four of the first five Yelp reviews are from dudes.

      Anyway, I think the point this person was trying to get across was a little “dont’ steal my stuff” and a lot “I’m cool because I buy pricey underwear”.

      Probably not a lot of overlap between that 10% underwear/shoe demographic and the population of colostomy survivors.

      Well, come on, you know it’s tough enough finding shoes
      to match the bag when the bag’s just a purse.

      seriously. if this is a woman*, and if they are nice undies, then why the hell would you not handwash them, and leave them hanging to dry? although, one time i was in a hurry and accidentally threw some nice undies in the public machines. never saw them again. am blaming a pervosexual on that one, personally.

      *same logic may go for a man, but i don’t know what constitutes pricey undies for men/the kind of material used.

    • #4.3   A Man with a Lot of Underwear

      Outside of “whimsical” boxershorts, “nice” men’s underwear is pretty much anything you buy individually. A lot of men just buy their underwear in shrink-wrapped 3 packs. Anyway, I have several boxershorts that are extremely soft cotton and are extremely well made with a seam in the waist that is nigh-non-existent so I feel no discomfort if I lay on it. They are fully machine washable and unlike ladies thong panties and the like, are not as easy to damage in a washer/dryer.

    Actually, as a gay kid, I used to steal men’s underwear. Sorry to all you guys with sexy undies. Some of us were too shy to buy our own. Think of it as your contribution to someone else’s coming of age, their genital maturation, and with the thought of wearing undies that cradled another man’s junk… endless JO fantasies (the threat of an aggressive fisting might even add to that) xo FB

    • #5.3   FreeBall

      Thanks for understanding. I assure you, as a kid it was purely innocent stealing of men’s undies. It was the fascination with adult masculinity which I hadn’t achieved yet. Its NOT like I was wearing it like a gas mask and breathing in your musky scent so I could know you better. Anyways, I’m an adult man now, and I buy my own undies, thanks very much. I have no desire to steal other men’s undies, and I really don’t want to know the odour of your taint. But maybe you should sell them on Ebay. Seems you have a fan out there, but its not me, sorry. By the way, what kind of undies are being stolen? Big baggy ass grandpa boxer shorts? Utilitarian boxer-briefs? Sexy little euro string bikinis? Masculine jockstraps stained and stretched from sports?

    The lower corner hexagon is what makes the note most threatening to me. I mean, anyone can learn MMA fighting in an octagon– but a hexagon? That’s 2 fewer corners to hide in, and those 120-degree interior angles are a serious hazard. This is one crazy bastard!

      Camouflage ?
      Perhaps, in something like the way that personal abuse gets transferred and recycled in human populations, (s)he nicked an unattended makeup kit the next time one one came across his path.

      But, rather than imagine some Sally Hansen greasepaint gone over the edge into woodland or desert patterning what if the new makeup owner gave the colors a twist and used them to paint on ersatz underwear ?
      Sure, this would be more challenging for a guy, what with the
      3-D bits flopping about, but hey, aim high or put down the brush.

    I was a victim of “Panty theft” in my past.A few years ago I worked as a dancer and I am not speaking of Ballet.One day I noticed that a few of my expensive fancy frillys were M.I.A…Not even 10 minutes later this new girl walks in the dressing room wearing a pair of my drawers.At first I did not know what to say so like a true lady I said “Hey!Dude wtf why are you wearing my UNWASHED pantys! The fruit cake then replied that she did not think I would mind…Uhhh yeah I do…Then she whipped them suckers off and tried to hand them back to me…Uhhhh No way was I taking them back…

    You all don’t get it. This guy has created a new genre: Laundro Letters. You’ve just read chapter one. In chapter two, Commando marks his newly purchased fine underwear, washes them, and then leaves them to dry. All in preparation for his big strip search scene in chapter six. Of course, sandpaper is introduced in chapter seven.

    Wow, I’m surprised by the number of people who think rape threats are totally funny.

    Good job, humanity.

    • #20.1   infanttyrone

      1) I think most people who post here realize that the sandpaper fisticuffs were a fairly idle threat, since the note writer’s actual chances of ever finding the thief are quite remote. If the thief were sufficiently stupid and unlucky enough to return to the same laundromat with the nice undies and to be accosted by the note writer, the worst result would likely be a sound thrashing upon the thief’s departure, assuming the writer thought well of his chances of administering one w/o being successfully counter-attacked or caught, the beating being in the realm of extrajudicial overkill.
      Note writer’s use of sandpaper is extreme, but almost certainly figurative.

      2) Threats of pre-emptive rape are unlikely to be considered funny, even by the PAN demographic, which surely includes some of us, to use a Lin-sanity reference, who are deep into the back court of derangement.
      Few of us, if any, are likely to laugh at the physical victimization of an innocent person.

      On the other hand, threats of using rape as a tactic of retaliation are often considered funny (especially here on PAN), usually in direct correlation to how clearly and how severely the victim-turned-threatener was wronged.
      As in #1, the more figurative and rhetorical the threat is, usually the funnier it seems to the average reader. If you encountered a fanfic piece in which Laundro Calrissian vowed to use some sandpaper on Darth Vader for swiping his undies and you wouldn’t chuckle, then you may need to find a different sandbox.
      Turning the tables on an assailant/oppressor/victimizer/etc is a pretty much universal literary device…as British Airways told the guy who complained about having a corpse moved into the seat next to his (and in 1st class yet, after the deceased passenger had expired in economy):
      …………………………………….Get over it!………………………………..

      It’s so silly and OTT that it’s obviously not a real threat. I don’t think people would be laughing if it actually said “I will rape you” (well, I hope not)
