that's so embarrassing. you're basically waltzing into a drug store and saying, "Hi, I'm a bitch." I would never do that to a man.

nieh
01-20-2008, 02:05 PM
I dunno, if you lived together and the guy was going shopping for other things already then I don't see anything wrong with asking them to get those too. But considering she's 16 and presumably lives with her parents, I see no reason why he's getting them for her.

yeah, that's gross. I understand if you can hide it under layers upon layers of super manly things. but sending a man on a tampon run is cruel. even if he doesn't mind, it's the principal of the thing.

Uh we established the fact that he enjoys being completely and utterly owned by this 16 year old girl. Here he is reveling in the complete loss of any public dignity. I mean it wouldn't be a problem if he just wanted to be helpful. But that's not what this is about.

Pathetic.

Whatever - not so much wrong with going for a tampon run. It's bragging about it that pushes this into the boundaries of the strange.

I've never understood why it's embarrassing for a dude to buy tampons. It's not like anyone thinks you're the one using them, and what kind of guy wouldn't just pick something up for his spouse/close relative/close friend or whatever the fuck without making such a big deal about it? As a society, are we really that hung up on women's periods to the point where we can't be mature about the whole thing?

Sunny

call me immature, but i dislike buying tampons FOR MYSELF. it's pretty much equivalent to saying "hi, i r bleeding out of my vag right now", which is more information than i usually like to share. not to mention the awkward moment when you're buying tampons, painkillers and candy, and the cashier lady says "i feel your pain, girl". sooo awkward.

much <3 for self checkout and freshdirect.

anyway, is this yet another "i have a girlfriend with a VAGINA" thread? condoms or the pill?

I agree. not that every month I send my BOYFRIEND (*sings* gossssiip!) to get me some plugs, but if I don't have time to go to the store & he's heading there anyway... I remember the first time I asked him if he could please get me some tampons & added I'd understand if he didn't feel comfortable getting them for me. well, he didn't feel comfortable buying me tampons, so I freed some extra time & quickly rushed to a store myself. but now.. I don't think either one of us is uncomfortable with whoever needs to buy the fuckers. it's like freakin' toiletpaper: people poo, oh noes.

I get that, aswell. but my general opinion is that cashiers are not supposed to comment on people's groceries. what if a cashier is like; "eating rice & chicken tonight, eh?"? dude, frankly I'd be a little bit weirded out. sometimes cashiers suddenly start talking to you while you're at the counter paying for your shit, but I usually don't let it bug me. it's weird, but it's fine. I would find it a lot more unacceptable if they actually judged my groceries, out loud. like, "that yoghurt is yucky, you should get the other one", or "saw you here yesterday too & you reeeeally dig Asian food, don't you?"

the other day I wanted to buy CONDOMS (ohmygod!) & I was just about to ask for them behind the counter & my boyfriend suddenly grabs my arm & hisses; "you can't do that, she's a muslim!" seriously. I am sorry, but I am not. we live in the Netherlands. you can't expect everyone to be a muslim too. it's not being inconsiderate, it's just that I needed freakin' condoms.

I had one terrible day when I went in, bought two packs of sanitary towels, and two packs of painkillers. The look the woman gave me from behind the counter made me want to run away and hide.

"So you get terrible cramps too?" "yes... *shut up shut up shut up*"

EDIT: The dad with the tampon-buying fetish.... Maybe he feels he's being helpful?


"hi, i r bleeding out of my vag right now"

I hate that part. If it's a guy at the till they tend to give you this really disgusted look as if to say, "how dare you bleed near me, take your blood away!"

Yeah, that's why people in Turkey use selotape instead of condoms.
A couple of months ago a friend of mine wanted me to buy condoms for him because he was too shy to buy condoms from a woman (actually, he's too shy to have sex with a girl and I'm pretty sure when he went home he put those condoms in a drawer and said "I swear I'll use them one day"). Anyway, I went into the store and ask the lady for condoms and she looked at me as if I asked for a very dangerous drug. Really, she didn't say anything, just looked at me, very annoyingly. Finally she asked me what kind I wanted. As a virgin, I didn't know which one to choose so I asked her what she would suggest for a beginner. I wish I hadn't, she looked very insulted. I must have forgotten that only women who have sex for pleasure (which means whores) use condoms. So I just chose one, paid for it and got out of the store. I'm sure she had done some good cleaning in the store after I left.

Luckily enough for me, if I ever want condoms I just have to pop down to the local clinic and I get them for free.

But a nice quote I got from someone was

"It's always either some middle-aged woman who think si'm satan for having pre-marital sex, or even worse some giggling teenage girl"

As it happens i've never bought them myself. Always just been given them at the clinic :/

Meg

I don't know why, but I get highly suspicious and defensive when people I don't know start asking me random questions or try to engage me in conversation. It's like yeah, I've come shopping, not to the pub, leave me alone!!!

*giggles* he/she didn't even guess first?

I'm not a person who randomly talks to strangers, but I am a person who's fine with talking to a stranger. if a stranger talks to me, I talk back. I've had some of the funniest & most interesting conversations in my life with complete, total strangers. now, that could say a whole lot about me/my friends, but that's besides the point. what makes it interesting, is that otherwise I never would've met/talked to them. most strangers aren't in my circle of people, or whatever. talking about life with a homeless fellow isn't something I'd ever get to experience, if I didn't talk back to people who talk to me.

Problem for me is that i live in a pub in the middle of town. Most of the guys that come to the pub are in their mid-thirties or more, and I get along with a lot of them. But some of them are just fucking perverts. So I generally try to ignore them. The one time I was just sat on my own and this random guy walked up and sat down next to me and started telling me his flipping life-story.

Now, i was far too polite to tell him to go away, or to get up and walk off myself. So I ended up having what would be considered a generally pleasant conversation, but he still unnerved me for some reason. He'd never come into the pub before, and I didn't know him. After a while I text my sister to ask a favour. A few minutes later she came into the bar and asked me to come clean the kitchen. Favour served.

Sunny

i generally kinda like it when people in stores talk to me, even if it is about my groceries. the only two instances that make me feel uncomfortable are 1) buying girl products and 2) buying junk food. nothing more awkward than buying cheetos and ice cream and having the person go "munchies, eh? *wink*". lordyyyy.


and god, when i was off the pill for a while and had to buy condoms... it was horribly awkward. like "oh hi im about to have sum sects". >.<
then again, i have no problem going into a uhhh adult store and buying.. supplies. so. hm.

Meg
01-21-2008, 06:15 AM

probably because the store in question is meant to be for that sort of thing. Whereas chemist's, supermarkets etc. Have all manner of other things in, including "respectable members of the public"

Because let's face, everyone in the "adult store" will most likely be in there for the exact same reason as you.

Sunny
01-21-2008, 06:21 AM
yeah, i think that's exactly what it is. it's so much less awkward when you're in a store dedicated to that kinda thing (unless it's a creepy seedy store, but i don't ever go to those).

JoY
01-21-2008, 06:23 AM
I have days no one I don't know is allowed to look at/talk to/touch/come near me. a visit to a regular store freaks me out like crazy on those days. not that I get a freakin' fit, faint, or cry afterwards, it's just that it makes me cranky. this world is crawling with.. PEOPLE. & people sometimes make me very, very, very cranky.

I don't need to be on my period to have these emotions, just a long day pretty much can do the trick. especially if it's been a long day involving the negative consequences of me being rather talkative; too much whining from too many people I don't know, too much information from too many people I don't know, too much stupid shit around me, or one of those people I don't know sticking to my ass all day, following me in every hallway.

other days I have conversations with everyone & anyone.

so I guess it doesn't really depend on the product I buy (although in a sex shop I do get giggly), just on how my day went. & if I have cigarettes.

Meg
01-21-2008, 06:26 AM
The only slightly "adult" shop i've been in was Ann Summers. My friend dragged me in there when we went to town one day because they had some underwear she wanted. I was young and innocent at the time *cough* and I had a lok round and found the cheapest thing in there was a bottle of "kiwi nipple lick"


At the back of the store was an area marked "over 18's only"

What made me laugh was that you could still see perfectly well what was in there from the other end of the shop. And there wasn't exactly someone there checking people's ages so they could go in there xD

I have days where i'm very anti-social and I snap at everyone. It usually happens when my younger brother is near me. Just him being next to me and breathing is enough to put in a bad mood for the rest of the day :/

01-21-2008, 08:22 AM
I always check that the barcode or price on the sanitary towels is clearly marked. I'd hate for there to be a problem in the supermarket and the cashier to ring the bell / shout to the next cashier "how much are these?". As happened to someone i know :-/

01-21-2008, 08:49 AM
I should ask my friends who work as cashiers if they even look at what people buy. I'm only conscious of what I buy when I go to a store that I live next to (or a store my friend lives next to when I'm staying at their place) and recognize the cashier from an earlier grocery shopping visit. Once we visited a store (embarrassingly enough) three times during one day (ice cream during hot afternoon, groceries in the evening, then cream and salad as we had forgotten to get them the first time). During two visits there was the same guy as a cashier and he looked kind of amused.

But yeah, generally, I don't tend to care. I'm more embarrassed about my junk food purchases.

As for original topic; WTF.

T-6005

I've always felt that the best way to buy condoms was to continuously hold eye contact with whoever your cashier is.

That's a lie. I buy condoms like anything else. It's standing there wondering what sort to get that feels odd. The inner monologue really goes crazy there.

Well, well, what do we have here? The regular kind I always go for? Yeah, I guess that's a good choice. Although I don't know, they have all of these special kinds right here. Maybe I should get this one. Or that one. It says "warming." I guess it is winter, after all. But I think she mentioned once that she doesn't like those or something. What about these? Oh, never mind - they actually look kind of dangerous. I don't want to put that on, I'll feel like an idiot. Ugh, this decision shouldn't be so hard. Just get the normal kind. Alright - wait, hold on a minute. These are cheaper, and apparently on sale. I didn't even know condoms went on sale, although come to think of it there's no reason they shouldn't. But there are only 10 in this pack, whereas that one has twelve and I already know how that goes. I trust them. Sort of - I don't like this whole rate of success business. What's all that 98.7% bullshit about anyway? Next thing you know a 1.3% chance ankle biter will be running around calling for his daddy. I'd better check if I have enough air miles left to make a quick getaway. That's what I'll do. As for this - I guess the old standby will do.

And so on and so forth until I leave the shop secure in my decision-making abilities.

I recognise that inner monologue, but it always goes slightly different in my head. more like;
"so what kind would you like?"
condoms, condoms, condoms.. oooo, those look interesting! but.. they come in colours.. fluorescent pink, anyone? or what about those with the... oh what the hell, I can not be having this discussion with myself, while that woman behind the counter is staring at me like that.

Ah, the evils of studded condoms. See, we get condoms for free here (alls you have to do is send an e-mail to the health ed office, and they put a huge package of assorted condoms in your mailbox, discreetly and everything), and sometimes they include those.

I still remember grabbing one, then me and my partner just staring at it for like, five minutes before bursting into uncontrollable laughter at the thought of even using one.

Ribbed condoms are fine, though.

Biodegradable? Teh fuck? They kinda.....Fall apart like tissue paper when you flush them away anyway. Why would anyone want biodegradable ones?

Dude, you don't flush tampons! They clog up the plumbing system. That's why they have rubbish cans in toilets..

Even I know that you're not supposed to flush tampons. They fuck them there toilets up.

I live on a college campus. It's happened.

Yes you do. Just not the applicator. If you use ones with applicators that is

i know most tampons are bleached, and that's probably not too great for you. as for the blood part, i believe if you change them frequently enough, there are no health risks. if you leave them in too long, you might develop TSS.. but it's pretty rare.

a divacup is a much much better solution though. *shrugs*

I prefer not to use tampons. I actually find them more uncomfortable, and yeah the thought of them doesn't seem too healthy to me. I use them if there's no other option, but I prefer not to. But wtf, no way, you're not supposed to flush them. I thought everyone knew that.

i'm glad i'm not the only person who's deeply upset by pads. auuuuugh. i think "always" just launched a line of pads that come with little baby wipes and they're like "always fresh! always clean!". no thanks, that doesn't make the experience any better.

haha. Pads are nasty if you don't take care of yourself and keep up on stuff. One can't deny that pads are messier to take care of, but I stay on top of things. It's better to me than the occasion when a tampon leaks, and the discomfort. I might be the only person who finds them uncomfortable, but for me they just are. I also don't like to have to worry about leaving it in too long and having problems. I also fear not finding the string or something stupid, haha.

Sorry but nope, all of the female hygiene products go in the bin, not the toilet.

Tampons are very rare here. Women who are not married are scared of losing their virginity with tampons that's why most of the stores don't have any. Well, even if I could find some I don't know how to use so, pads are fine for now.

I kind of enjoyed this thread.

Not in an "uhhh uhhh I love period talks" way, but I don't know. I live with three girls, so that's less of a deal. I enjoyed the condom talk, though.

ha. i dunno about that. first of all, tmi, but the sensation of wearing a pad is just so awful to me. tampons you can actually forget about (if they're in right)second of all, the only way pads wouldn't be nasty to me if i washed myself every 15 minutes. if not more often.

*shudder*

I like tampons. They keep bad things from happening. Like when this girl at my school forgot one i guess and decided to bleed herself..

JohnnyNemesis

I remember this girl in high school had a problem. She wore sweatpants that day. She left blood on every seat she sat in, and no one bothered telling her that she was leakin'.

Everyone laughed, but I felt really bad for her. Of course, I didn't tell her either, 'cause she hated me.

That is embarrassing. Sounds like something that would happen in a teen movie. Bleed in everyone's chairs.

having a whole 'nother uterus and cervix makes the whole use of a tampon or divacup pretty impossible =(.

*stares daggers at all those who are able to use such things*

i hate pads =(

it really breaks my heart that tuxedo condoms are.. just black. :[ I think everyone assumes they've got bowties. if they don't, they have a serious spunk deficiency.


those really thin pads are a good back up if you feel like wearing nice underwear. omg divacup *vomits uncontrollably* oh god. sick.

Guys, thank you verry much! It's a great idea! Next time I need to get rid of a boyfriend that I don't like (yes, it's often like that. I just really feel crappy for those idiots, who are blind enough to like me :D ) I'll just tell him to buy me tampons :D If THAT doesn't revolt the guy, than nothing can (noridthistime,yaknow) ! :D Thanks again! I'm 99% that it'll work.
