She finds it weird that this expensive-smelling soap doesn’t lather at all. After her child gives the 411 on the soap, this mom wanted to burn her house to the ground!
— South Carolina
Her name is Ashford Evans. And, she shares an experience from which we could all learn.
This mother of three tells her story on For Every Mom. According to her, she was just getting home from an extensive business day at the office.
Her kids were at neighbors’ houses around the town. So when she arrived home, she got a chance to enjoy the silence for a bit before her husband came home with the noisy ones.
Ashford says the house was squeaky clean and smelling wonderful.
As she ventured into her child’s bathroom, she saw this old soap bar. It was cracked and weathered like old soap bars usually look. It smelled mesmerizing with a scent of grapefruit, as mentions Ashford.
However, she did find it perplexing that she couldn’t remember purchasing such a bar of soap.
Wash, Wash, Wash
Nevertheless, Ashford continued sniffing the fragranced soap throughout the night. She had washed her hands with it and everything.
Although she found it a little unusual there was no lather at all, she continued to use it — still wondering from where she could’ve bought it in the past.
The next day, her little girl was walking around also sniffing it. According to the mom, her daughter said “This is my favorite!”
Of course, given that she was recently introduced to the soap bar, Ashford agreed with her little girl.
“I know! What IS that? Where did you guys get that?”
This Is Where Her World Ended
Her daughter was TOO enthusiastic to tell her.
According to her, one of the brothers had brought it home from Tae Kwon Do on Wednesday night — specifically, out of the boy’s restroom!
That’s when it all dawned on her…
It was a frickin’ URINAL CAKE!
“A urinal cake from the public gym I take my 5 year old for Tae Kwon Do three times a week. A urinal cake that has been peed on by at least 1000 strange little boys that I just held against my cheek!!!!!”
By the time she came to this revelation, it was Saturday.
“With this realization I screamed and jerked it from her hands flinging it into the trashcan… ‘WASH YOUR HANDS, YOUR FACE, OH GOD WASH EVERYTHING!!!!!!’ I screamed back. And everything went black.”
Could You Imagine!?
Ashford said, after she woke back up, all she could do at that point was think back on how much stuff the kids had touched since Wednesday night…how much she had “washed her hands” with it…how she had prepared, cooked, and ate food after having “washed her hands” with the soap…
She mentioned that, at that point, she only had two options. She could either burn down the entire house.
Or, everyone could just pretend none of it ever happened, and she’d crack open and down some wine.
Obviously, she chose the latter option.
However, given the circumstances, the first choice wouldn’t have been a bad decision either, right?
