I was at a friends house, there were three of us including me. My friend A excused herself to the restroom. Then returned and we continued our talking. Then friend B (homeowner of the house we were hanging out at) went to the restroom. She came back out and freaked out! She said she saws tampon applicator and package in the trash but didn't see any used tampon in the trash. (I don't know if she actually searched the trash or what, but eww). Friend A said she flushed it. And B freaked about how you shouldn't flush tampons, it's bad for plumbing etc. she seriously gave us a ten minute lecture on this!!!! Got me thinking.....do you flush your used tampons or throw them in the trash??
