Woman finds tampon at boyfriend’s house and sends serial number to Tampax to see if he was cheating
Lois did some serious investigation to find out when the tampon was manufactured and bought…
A woman has divided opinions after admitting to sending the serial number from a tampon packet to Tampax after finding it at her boyfriend’s house.
Twenty-three-year-old Lois Sanders from Liverpool took to TikTok to share that she’d discovered a stray (and firmly packaged, don’t worry) Tampax tampon and Benefit mascara under her boyfriend’s wardrobe in his university house.
According to Lois, neither the tampon nor the mascara were hers and neither had accumulated enough dust under the wardrobe to have been there for a long time, which suggested they were recent additions.
Despite her boyfriend denying ever having another girl in his room and pointing out that the items must have belonged to the room’s previous occupant, Lois decided to do a little digging to see whether her other half had been unfaithful or not.
In her investigation, Lois actually reached out to Tampax via their email address with the serial number from the packet, explaining to the company that she needed to find out when it had been manufactured in order to clear up her boyfriend’s alibi.
Unexpectedly, a member of the Tampax customer service team emailed back, explaining the incriminating tampon had been manufactured on December 11th 2019, while also explaining how the serial numbers work (for future reference, probably).
The email, from a team member called Grace, explained: “The code on the wrapper (or on the box of tampons) is the production code, and indicates the date the tampons were manufactured… You can use the first 4 digits of the production code on the package to work out the production date of your product.”
This was before Finn moved in, with Lois then clearing his name and coming to the conclusion that it must have belonged to a female tenant who had lived there before him.
Lois admitted that Finn had called her ‘f*****g nuts’ at the time, but shared that they are ‘still together to this day, so happy ending’. However, a vast proportion of the TikTok community didn’t seem to agree, with many pointing out that her behaviour was a major red flag.
One person wrote: “Finn if you are reading this mate RUN”, while another commented: “I’m not sure if this is genius or borderline psycho”.
Though others were quick to applaud the Tampax customer service team for their swift and efficient response, with one viewer pointing out: “Grace at Tampax deserves a pay rise”.
Dad accidentally buys 60 pairs of reading glasses
‘He thought the packaging was a little excessive’
A dad accidentally bought 60 pairs of reading glasses after misreading an order.
The dad has gone viral on Twitter for his massive order of reading spectacles. He was left baffled as to why the parcel was so full when it arrived at his address on Sunday March 26th, leaving his son in stitches.
Tom Arnold, 61, from Perranporth in Cornwall, thought he’d only ordered one pack to share with his wife — not a whole shop’s worth. Radio and podcast host, Chris Arnold could not stop laughing as he witnessed his dad open the parcel with a bewildered look on his face.
The viral tweet read: “My Dad has accidentally bought 60 pairs of reading glasses off the internet after misreading the quantity of his order.”
Speaking about the mishap, Chris said: “I just found it hilarious, he said he thought the packaging was excessive, then he opened it up and the box was full.
“He seemed confused as to what had happened. We looked at the order and he had ordered 12 packs instead of one, as they were for him and my mum, plus spares. The order came to over £100 but he’s managed to get a refund!”
He described the incident as ‘very funny indeed’, saying it ‘cheered up’ him and his family. As the tweet went viral and accumulated thousands of likes, Specsavers jumped in on the banter as they tweeted: “Do we even need to say it?”
Chris joked in reply: “At this point guys, I don’t think you do. P.S. Are you interested in buying 59 pairs of reading glasses off my dad?”
They hilariously replied: “If you can’t shift them you might want to consider adding an extra 118 eyes to your dad’s face.”
Specsavers tweeted an update on the situation: “The glasses have been safely returned, but Chris’ dad deserves a bit of good luck. How about a free eye test and a brand-new pair of glasses for good measure?
“You really should’ve gone to Specsavers.”

Grandma, 85, from Greater Manchester chosen as face of new Adidas advert
Well done, Barbara!
A ‘fit as a fiddle’ charity runner, 85, from Greater Manchester has been chosen to be one of the faces of a new Adidas advert.
Barbara Thackray, a grandmother from Altrincham, runs 10k twice a week to keep fit. She has been chosen — alongside the likes of Liverpool footballer, Mo Salah, Qatari hurdler Mariam Farid and Egyptian runner Khadija Hegazy in the new TV and YouTube advert — as one of the faces of to feature in it.
The retired college lecturer took up running eight years ago, aged 77, to raise funds for St Ann’s Hospice in Heald Green, Stockport.
She has been raising money for the hospice since her sister died there in the 1990s.
She said she watched the new advert ‘on a little screen’ and it was ‘fine’, adding: “So long as they were prepared to make a significant donation to St Ann’s Hospice, I felt ok about it.”
Ms Thackray has raised over £20,000 for St Ann’s Hospice in just a few short years, having been a champion of the organisation for over 10 years — including during her sister’s illness and eventual passing.
She’s not planning on stopping running any time soon.
