So I’m finishing up my period, and at home this morning, I grabbed a tampon and stuck it in my jeans pocket. Well I guess it fell out of my pocket at work. One of the guys saw this pink thing on the ground and was like, “What is this?? What is it?? Wait, is this a tampon?” I swiped it and I was like, “Ooops, fell out of my pocket!” Then I went right back to work.
Ahhhhhhh did I mention I work with all men??? Oh well! Luckily they are all married with daughters, so it’s not like periods are anything new to them!!

I once handed a tampon to a male clerk at a store. I meant to hand him my credit card.

Guys are so grossed out by tampons. I’ve never understood why they freak out about them if they’re still in the packaging. I work with all guys too so I totally feel your pain!

@GroovyHippieChick: Hahahaha. That’s hysterical.

@Brideonabudgetlauren: I think it’s more of the thought of the actual thing taking place rather than just seeing the tampon.

HAHAHA when I was young I use to send my brothers to buy my pads or tampons for me. Now I care less. I open up my purse and BA BOOM there it is. If you saw it and you are a guy that is life lol

I never understand why guys are so freaked out by unused tampons. A few months ago I left my ipod charging at work by accident and I asked one of the guys I work with to put it in my desk drawer overnight. Guess I had some tampons in there because he was like “I saw some stuff, I just threw it in there and ran away”. He is married!

I used to be terrified to buy pads and tampons when I was younger. Now, I roll up to the counter with tampons, pads, gas-x, and even condoms, without batting an eye. The clerks always seem more embarassed than I do.

@Rouquine: I think you’re right. I use OB tampons so I can basically just reach down the front of my pants to put one in. I did this in front of a boyfriend once — just turned away from him, half-squatted and put one hand in my pants for half a second — and he freaked out like I had just wiped poop from my ass with my hand. I immediately went to wash my hands (of course) and I guess even that wasn’t enough for him!

Haha I used to be all embarrassed about tampons and pads and especially embarrassed about a man seeing them! I’d act all weird if I was out shopping with my dad and needed to buy them, and all weird if the clerk was male etc etc.
Now, there have been times were I’ve been shopping by myself, but picking up things for me and DH, and in one fell swoop purchased the giant box of tampons AND box of pads, condoms, lube, Philips Colon Health, metamucil, and tums. Woo Hoo Yeah! Just heading to the Aunt Flo Aisle and the Ass Care Aisle! Don’t mind me!

I love scaring my husband with talking about tampons!
I too, use OB tampons, so luckily they are really discrete.

I got a really gross joke about this… so if you don’t like gross jokes, stop reading!
There was this man who was having sex with a married woman, her husband came home early and she hid him in the closet and locked him in. About a year later, she opened the closet and saw him there…
“How did you live for so long?”
“Well, I had tons of jelly sandwiches to eat!”
They were her used pads that she used to toss in there for decades!
I don’t even know why I shared this joke…. but oh well!
