Today, as I was doing my make-up, I needed a Q-tip to fix a mistake. I took one out the box and put it in my mouth to get it wet. Too bad someone had used it before to clean their ears. FML

I don't understand why someone would put a used q-tip back in the box. Ew.

I was eating my cereal while reading this and honestly I just completely lost my appetite. That is horrifyingly disgusting

Why would anyone put one in their mouth? That's what the faucet is for

Saliva can provide better uses that water at times, also it's your own body of you think your saliva is gross you should probably clean your mouth. Saliva is good for getting makeup off in all honesty. And sometimes the faucet can be too harsh and drench the q tip.

So why didn't you just use the sink to get it wet in the first place confuses me

Because one usually expects Q-tips from the box to be clean.

Also your saliva is a solvent that can get makeup off easier than water

My lipstick comes off better from licking my lips than from rubbing with a water-wet (probably a better term but I just woke up and can't word right now) paper towel so I can see why op would use saliva.

"Water-wet paper towel" made me think of someone stuffing a paper towel in their mouth to get it wet because for some reason they didn't want to use the faucet.

Either way, I still think it would be a bit disgusting to smear your saliva on your face.

it's not going to kill you, a lot better than someone else's earwax in your mouth.

It's not someone else's saliva - it's your own saliva - and it works, like, 20 times better than water.

Usually, you wash your face afterwards. It's just easier to get it off with spit.

Talk about a party foul. Who does that?!?!

People who do that are disgusting. Would you put your dirty clothes with your clean ones?

It would be truly horrifying if OP lived alone.

Who the hell is the grot-bag in your family that did that? Probably best to keep a stash of your own from now on OP!

Grot-bag, I like that one!

Someone recycled it too soon.

Bet that was an EERIE sensation.

It was almost good until the unneeded emphasis. Good try though.
