Today, at work, a lady approached me asking if I'd found a used cloth diaper on a table, and I told her it was probably in the trash. She said "That's okay, I can wash it." So I searched through several bags of trash, and when I couldn't find it, she said "Oh never mind! It's in my bag." FML

The whole point of using cloth diapers is to reuse them. If someone said that to me I'd be pretty upset. Now I agree that the lady should have been digging through trash rather than op.

This is a reply for number 16! ^v^

I understand that, but I mean, she thought she left a USED DIAPER on a table in a public place!
If someone left that on a table and I knew what it was, I'd still have definitely thrown it away because, well.. it's not like I could put it in the lost or found or something! xD I would have felt bad for the woman and apologized if she came back looking for it, because cloth diapers are fairly expensive. Maybe I'd even offer her the money to purchase a new one. ^v^ But I wouldn't dig through the trash.

It would have been her mistake had she left it. >,<

In the past I was considering trying cloth diapers but it is alot of work. and its true they are ment to be reused. but as everyone says for her to leave a diaper cloth or not just lying around is disgusting and if I was op I highly doubt I would look for it. but I guess op was being nice

I am going to go out on a limb here and say that the lady probably has multiple children, and was in a rush. It's easy to forget things when one is in a rush... I once lost my keys when I was late for work, turns out they were hooked on my belt loop. People tend to mess up, no big deal.

yeah a dirty diaper is something that shouldn't be widely accessible... I personally feel that when out in public, disposable is the way to go to avoid carrying shit and piss around. At hone reusable is fine, but no one wants to smell that when they're out, especially at a restaurant.

They make wet bags that you can put in your diaper bag that contain the mess and the smell. The whole point of reusable is to not use disposable as they are very bad for the environment and not so good for the baby.

i use cloth while out, but we have a special bag they go in when dirty, and they never go on a table...yuck! And cloth actually stinks less than disposable, so unless youre waving it around no one would know you have it with you. They can get expesnsive, so I understand her wanting it back, but she should have been digging herself. Personally, I mostly have cheap ones so I would have let it go....

10: I have two children in diapers, and although I will readily admit that I am typically frazzled to the point of leaving the diaper bag at home and having to turn back for it, I have never managed to forget a dirty diaper on a table in a public place. And if I did, even if it was an expensive reusable diaper, I would most certainly not make someone dig through the trash to find it. If it was that important, I'd have been digging through it myself.
