Elderly Laundromat Owners Wow Internet By Modelling Clothes Left Behind By Customers

Old but gold.


Most often than not, people would accidentally leave behind pieces of clothing in a laundry store.

And most of the time, the owners of these clothes never reclaim them back.

So, an elderly couple, who owns a laundromat in Taiwan, decided to have some fun with the unclaimed laundry.

Loving their job

The couple, reportedly aged 83 and 84 years old respectively, and have been modelling clothes left behind by the customers at their laundry store.

In fact, the couple even posts up their adorable pictures on their own Instagram account @wantshowasyoung.

And as a result, they are now legit Instagram stars with almost half a million followers on the social media site.

We can totally see why:
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

如果今天還是秀娥氣勢贏,那我就會告訴萬吉,說應觀眾要求,必須出一篇秀娥特輯! 前幾天VOGUE的文章說到:「有一種愛叫萬吉和秀娥的愛❤️」,這是什麼愛?其實孫子也不知道,但當有人把整套好看的西裝送洗未取,拿來給兩人穿上,就算這次沒有相視而笑,就算衣服來自不同主人,也還是會覺得是情侶裝,這應該就是愛吧? 👴🏼萬吉(身長160) 成套西裝:至少20年以上未取成套雙排扣白西裝 內搭:8年以上未取布達佩斯紀念T(已找到新主人) 腰帶:萬吉的領帶 👵🏼秀娥(身長155) 成套西裝:至少15年以上未取全套卡其西裝 內搭:3年未取白t恤 💡溫馨提醒|洗衣服請記得拿、認同請分享❤️ These old clothes have been abandoned by customers at the laundry for years.

According to the South China Morning Post, the clothes modelled by the couple were fully paid for but left behind in the couple's laundry store, some even for years.

​The bio section of the couple's Instagram page mentioned that the idea of the modelling 'job' came from the couple's grandson, who "can't bear to watch his grandparents overcomed by boredom every day".

However, despite the couple’s efforts, the original owners didn’t come back to reclaim the items.

“No one has come to claim the clothes at present, because it may be a long time ago," one of the posts read.

But don't feel too bad though, because the admin for the page revealed that some of these old clothes found new owners because photos of the elderly couple went viral.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

這不是要說阿公在模仿年輕時看小姐的樣子! 而是一個有點悲傷,關於布達佩斯旅遊紀念T被遺棄的故事...身上的衣服,來自被放了至少8年以上的T恤區,衣服上面寫著布達佩斯,而這位客人一共送洗了五件,分別是黑白灰黃紅,除非他真的很愛這一件T恤的款式,不然一定是一家人出遊時買的吧?但...就是洗了沒有來拿,不知道他們一家的記憶中是否還有布達佩斯。 👴🏼萬吉 上衣:至少8年布達佩斯紀念T 褲子:至少3年以上未取UQ卡其褲 👵🏼秀娥 領巾:兩條被遺棄的手帕綁成 上衣:至少8年布達佩斯紀念T 裙子:阿嬤30年私服 💡溫馨提醒|洗衣服請記得拿、認同請分享❤️ These old clothes have been abandoned by customers at the laundry for years.

The couple also donated some of the clothes to those who really need them, the admin of the page said, and they even gave a tiny reminder: remember to pick up your laundry.

How adorable, kan? We wish we would be as hip as the couple when we are 80.
