  • It's nasty! On ur own, face down, or whatever...no one should be privy to this delicate info. Wrap them up and throw them away.

  • I've seen this so much it's unreal. It isn't as much "odd" as it is unsanitiary! If she is living on her own and is usually the only one who handles the trash, it is not really that big of a deal. BUT, if the space is shared or someone else has to clean it up she should wrap them up. That's just my opinion though!

  • Gross! I wrap them when I use them (only at night)..it's just common courtesy, no one needs to see or smell that!

  • Nasty. I don't want to see it must less somebody elsewhere. I always keep my newspaper just for that purpose.
