Woman buys new trousers for work and finds bloody tampon in the pocket

When Payton Wilson decided to wear her new trousers to work, she wasn’t expecting to find a bloody surprise inside of them.

The 20-year-old lab worker from Washington, US, had bought the trousers from Walmart – a popular supermarket chain in the US – and the first time she wore them, she noticed a lump in one of the pockets.

It turned out to be a used tampon, wrapped in a piece of paper.

In an odd coincidence, Payton works as a phlebotomist (person who draws blood from patients) and was going through blood samples when she found the tampon.

‘I was sitting at my desk going through blood samples when I noticed I had a lump in my pocket but I didn’t remember putting anything in there,’ she said to The Sun.

‘I looked in my pocket and it was a crumpled up piece of paper so I initially thought it was a note, but as I unfolded it I saw blood and it was a used tampon.

‘I was absolutely mortified. Who in their right mind would do that?

‘I don’t know if it was a prank or why someone would do that but it’s not justifiable in any way, it was absolutely disgusting.’

Because of her line of work, Payton was wearing rubber gloves at the time.

She said: ‘If someone else had bought them and wasn’t wearing gloves, who knows the kind of diseases they could have caught from it.

‘I had washed all the trousers before I’d worn any of them, but from now on I’ll be checking the pockets of every item I buy before I even take it off the rail.

‘I never want to go through that again.’

She also went back to Walmart to explain the situation and the team apologised, as well as offered her a gift card worth around £40.
