TMI- funny story about 'female stuff' adult content

that's my code word for tampons and pads and all.

I'm 40 and to many people's shock and I am still menstruating (why the shock I don't know)

So I was buying some stuff and my DH was with me at the store. he was in line first, I was in one of those motor carts so the cashier girl didn't see me right away.

She's talking to my DH, making chit chat.

Cashier: "oh, how sweet of you, buying these for your daughter?"

DH:gives her a weird look, motions to me saying "no, they're for my wife"

she'd got them in her hand, looks at me and says

"you're still using these things!?"

what do they think, that everyone has a hysterectomy at 30 or something!?
BTW, people usually guess me somewhere between 30 - 35 which makes the whole thing worse :(

  • haha..how old was she, 20?

    if she had half a brain or an ounce of tact, she would've shut up without saying that last comment...thus, her immaturity showed.
    btw..i'm 42, and i still use 'em, too. SHOCKER!! lol!

  • none of her business, lol.
    Only thing I was thinking is that if you were buying only pads insted of tampons, that the question was regarding that, as in you still using pads and not tampons

  • I was buying both and pretty sure she knew it .
    I left out the part when she asked me when I was going to have my hysterectomy. that's not the first time I've been asked something like that. Seems that the 20 somethings and teens think that once women get to a certain age they all have one.

    does this say more about sex education in this country, or our medical practices pushing things like hysterectomys?

  • The fact that she even thought it was any of her business is ridiculous..but the assumption was funny. People are great at assuming. lol.

  • LOL. I'm 45 and have a baby!! Ha ha. I also have teenagers. It's funny how misinformed young people are, hey. I was at the post office the other day, waiting for it to open, and a young high school girl came up and tried to open the door. I told her it wasn't open for another 5 minutes, did she only need a stamp. She did, so I gave her one. Guess what: she didn't know where on the envelope to stick the stamp!!!

    I'd have thought the girl in your story might have the tact and decency to keep her mouth shut though.
