Goodwill Deal?

There is a Goodwill store on the way home from school, so yesterday I took a tour looking for any deals. Although, in my annual visit I never seem to find anything, and I am not interested in owning other people's dishes or wearing their clothes. I get enough second hand stuff at work from patients, like advice and body fluids

There on the shelf at Goodwill sits an incentive spirometer, why would someone donate that and why did Goodwill not throw it away? I understand wheelchairs, walkers and maybe a commode, but trying to sell an incentive spirometer for $2.99. Do people even know what the hell it is or how to use it? Do they understand that someone sick enough to be in the hospital also had their lips wrapped around it. I like a bargain, but I think I will stick to Target.

That is several levels of ICK.

Nothing like picturing a patient horking and then putting their lips around that to make my stomach churn......

I'm thinking folks didn't know what that was. I would definitely just move on, leave it sitting on the shelf. No sharing that kind of thing. Ick.

I think I should go back and tell them what it is. Some kid might think it's a toy.

Ewwww. I hope it has been thoroughly disinfected, but that may be too much to hope for.
