I love shopping through thrift stores and getting great deals on used clothing, furniture, and other random odds and ends. It's one of my favorite things to do with my pals on the weekend. I usually head home with a hundred bucks worth of cool stuff that I probably don't need, but, YES, I do...

I've even thought about working at one part-time so that I could get first dibs on neat stuff.

I came across a video on TikTok this morning of a former Goodwill employee talking about what it's like working there, and it's NOT at all what I imagined. I didn't realize just how important it is to wash all of your clothing items and used goods when you get home from thrifting.

Get a load of this:

Dude. There is no way I would clean up biohazardous material on a Goodwill salary. I wouldn't even do it when I worked at a mental health hospital. That job went to whoever made the most money. If you're cleaning up SUPER icky stuff for the bare minimum money, you should start asking questions or start looking for a new job. No way.

I always wash the clothes I buy when I get home, but, this video makes my skin crawl, and has me second-guessing the power of my washing machine.

Are you a current or former thrift store employee? I'd love to hear from you about your experience. Did you have to clean up things that were way above your pay grade?

What Is A Day Like In Texas Prisons? A View From Both Sides Of The Bars

Have you ever wondered what life inside a Texas prison is really like? I asked friends who are correction officers and folks who have volunteered at jails. I also asked former inmates, and browsed forums and articles with current and former inmates. Put all together, it paints what I hope is a fairly accurate picture of daily prison life in Texas.
