Buying Unmentionables: Guys, *NOW* I Get It!

Gentlemen, I owe you an apology.

I will never again mock your reluctance to go to the store and buy feminine hygiene products.

Never again will I think you're just being foolish when you don't want to be seen with a box of tampons in your hands.

I now understand what you've gone through.

Substitute condoms for feminine products and you'll understand my epiphany.

While situational similarities abound, guys don't have to ask someone to unlock the case so you can retrieve that box of Tampax Pearls or Kotex.

I'm not sure why guys are embarrassed about running to the store for us but I can tell you that when you have someone doing a price check on your ten pack of condoms with a crowd of men and a judgmental older woman peering at you over her glasses at a busy Walgreens you don't begin to know what embarrassment truly is.

So gents I may not completely understand your perspective, but I now understand your reluctance.

Next time I think we should both use Walgreens in store pickup.
