Woman Rallies Fellow Villagers In Mom's Defense After She Receives A Less-Than-Neighborly Note

"All the school mums are one million percent behind my mum."

While most people use dryers to dry their clothing, some people still prefer the tried-and-true method of hanging their garments on clotheslines. And, as a woman from U.K. pointed out, that's totally OK.

An anonymous person snatched 65-year-old Stokeinteignhead dweller Rozamund Perrin's underwear from her clothesline last week and returned them to her with an attached note.

"It is total inappropriate for this type of garment to be displayed opposite the village primary school," the note read. "There are members of this community that would welcome a halting of this."

This was apparently not the first time Perrin's underwear was stolen from her clothesline. She reported the first incident to the police and spoke out against it to the village's parish council.

This time around, though, Perrin's daughter, Charlotte Wilkinson, decided to take action.

The 42-year-old Wilkinson, who is also a mother of three children, posted a photo of her mother's undergarments and the controversial note to Facebook on September 12.

"Seriously, the small-minded, prudishness of this village is unbelievable," she wrote on Facebook. "Didn't know there was a law against hanging your knickers on the line?"

As of September 15, her Facebook post has received nearly 900 likes.


Other women in the village, as a sign of solidarity, are donating their underwear to create village bunting, and some of them have been sharing photos of their underwear online.

"All the school mums are one million percent behind my mum and donations of knickers have already come through," Wilkinson told the Daily Mirror.

On Wednesday, Wilkinson posted a Facebook picture calling for "Solidarnosc for Stokeinteignhead Smalls." Solidarnosc means solidarity in Russian.

A Plus reached out to Wilkinson for a comment.
