Good Times In The Feminine Hygiene Aisle

What is it about so-called "feminine hygiene" products and the hilarity I cause or witness at my local drug store? Not once, but twice, I've been "caught" testing the various scents of pantiliners. Okay, yes, sniffing them. I swear I think the aisle is empty and I just want to see what's what and yep, I look up and not only is someone heading toward me, but it's a male.

Tonight I went to pick up some needed supplies and a guy was in the aisle of good times, on his cell phone, trying to get just the type of pantiliner the caller on the other end was requesting. He was insisting, loudly, that "the long ones aren't 'to go' though!" He got quite exasperated at one point, exclaiming, "What happened to there just being Kotex and one kind of Kotex? Now they come in blue and green and orange and it's all so confusing!" He ended up handing the phone to a female companion. I couldn't help but laugh out loud.

Ahh the bliss of marriage and a spouse who does the grocery shopping: I trsined him once exactly what to buy and now I never have to enter that aisle again. And I say again Jody (from Ren's blog) just get the unscented, the perfume is bad for you!

As a good husband who is regularly asked to pick up such products while I'm at the store, I just wish they would standardize the packaging and number of adjectives required to select the correct one. I had it down to what kind of flowers were on the front of the package, but they changed them again.

ultra super thin un-winged un-scented neo-maxi-zoom-dweebie ...?!?

I think they should put letter or number codes on them just for men so their wives could just say, "Grab a pack of A13's while you're at the store."
