I have no problem buying things for my wife, but we rarely go to the store seperately. When I do go alone and she needs me to pick something up for her I have no problems with it, provided she adequately describes what she needs so I don't get the wrong thing for her. It's like buying condoms. I never understood why some guys were embarressed about it. I was glad I could do something that screamed to the world "Look, I'm having sex!"

For some weird sexually repressed reason I am more uncomfortable about buying condoms (haven't done that in a while) than buying Tampons.
Link Posted: 7/31/2002 5:48:18 PM EDT
I've done it before, will do it again. While for some reason I do feel weird doing it (not sure why), I don't have a problem doing it. It's just something that you got to do every now and again. I know she'd do it for it for me! LOL!

She'd buy feminine products for you? Yikes! [;D]

No big deal. Can you think of a better time to pick up a few boxes of ammo or other gun related items?
Link Posted: 7/31/2002 5:55:16 PM EDT
You, sissy boy or what ? Who cares man, I just get whats needed. Try this next time at check out line, when you buy groceries, ask the register operater- Do you think I got enough, Tp for all this food !!

Not just [b]No[/b], but [b]Hell, No![/b] I am just such a stickler for being prepared! What? Buy tampons? Why? Did you suddenly discover that you're an adult woman? Nor would I ask Miz Hun to pick me up a pack of extra-large, ribbed condoms when she goes to the store! Same difference! [:D] Eric The(SlightlyImmature)Hun[>]:)]
Link Posted: 7/31/2002 6:00:16 PM EDT
I tell her to do the same thing that I have her do for me - WRITE IT DOWN! She goes and gets car parts for me while I'm working, and I'd go get whatever she needed. Provided, of course, that I know exactly what she needs. How many different kinds of pads do we need - they even have a version for thongs! I get a little worried - we don't have this much variety in condoms, you know... FFZ

No big deal.

A few months ago I was talking about this with my friend's and one of them said something that made a lot of sense. Would you rather be the guy waiting on line with the tampons, meaning I have a woman at home!!! or the guy buying the Playboy magazine. Just get whatever she needs.

[Unfortunately speaking from experience] Cashiers do not care, or even think about, what you are buying, they just don't want to be hassled. [/Unfortunately speaking from experience] If someone else wants to form an opinion based on your purchase they are hopeless.

I will second that one. Mostly what cashier's want is for you to get your sorry tampon-buying asses out of the store so we can go BS with our buddies or sit down...

Yeah, but sometimes "Aunt Flow" arrives unexpectedly early."

Yes, but I'm sure if they wouldn't be way too big for you, she would buy them for you. She seems like a smart woman who could recognize that a trashbag over a baseball bat secured at the base with a rubberband is just plain rediculous. [;)] Oh, and to answer the question, I have no problem with it. I seriously doubt that the person at the register thinks I have some sort of weird tampon fetish. And if the cashier is a female, you just won major points.
Link Posted: 7/31/2002 6:17:28 PM EDT
Yes, it's no big deal to me. A perfectly matural and normal thing to do. Hell, buying condoms at 18 was more embarrasing!! Sgtar15
Link Posted: 7/31/2002 6:18:34 PM EDT
I don't think it's any big deal. I have actually made a special trip just for fem stuff for her before. I didn't even throw a candy bar on the deck with the box. It's no biggie for me.
Link Posted: 7/31/2002 6:24:07 PM EDT
No biggie. Never had a problem getting that stuff. When we're in the pharmacy I love to ask the little woman (in a loud clear voice using good King's English), "Honey do we need any KY or Astro Glide?" Ahhh, lifes little pleasures...
Link Posted: 7/31/2002 6:24:11 PM EDT
ah yes! the 18 year old male cash register clerk says "so your buying these for your girlfriend?" i say yes. he snickers. i say "at least i have a girlfriend you pimple faced chode". the shorty is, when one of us is hurting the other is there for them %100.
Link Posted: 7/31/2002 6:28:41 PM EDT
Bearing directly on this subject is a LONG joke about selling fishing tackle I will tell at HUNAPALOOZA.
Link Posted: 7/31/2002 6:34:48 PM EDT
The clerk knows they're not for you. I don't see why any man would be uncomfortable.
Link Posted: 7/31/2002 6:35:05 PM EDT
I be absolutely FEARLESS! Tampons, Douche, Yeast Treatment Nothing fazes me! That thing is like a car or a gun it requires maintenance! And you gotta have the right stuff for proper maintenance!
Link Posted: 7/31/2002 6:43:49 PM EDT
I've done it before - and I'd do it again, and I'm not even married! It's no big deal... I think that only men with some kind of repressed "macho,manly weenie,hope-no-one-sees-me" fear would worry about such things - (not an attack on anyone, just my opinion...) :-) See ya @ the condom counter....
Link Posted: 7/31/2002 6:54:21 PM EDT
I'd rather buy tampons than Preparation H. anyday.

Link Posted: 7/31/2002 7:17:28 PM EDT
HELL NO! I wont, will not, aint gonna do it! Hell, when I was in high screwl and working at the Piggly wiggly, I'd spot a man buying a jumbo pack of kotex or tampons we'd mess with him big time. If I was working the register I'd get on the intercom and it would sound like this: "customer on isle 3 needs a price check on a jumbo pack of extra absorbant tampons 100 count" I've seen guys just leave their buggy's and run out of the store.
Link Posted: 7/31/2002 7:21:40 PM EDT
whats the big deal? its just a function of life. i would and will stand by my wife throughout all her needs. no matter how embarassing (sp)
Link Posted: 7/31/2002 7:21:52 PM EDT
After I thought about it, it has never been an issue in 10 years.

Why not! It's just stuff at the store. AB
Link Posted: 7/31/2002 7:53:29 PM EDT
I have no problem doing it. I usually get a little attitude from the female store employees when while holding a box of Tampons I ask, "You look about the same size as my wife, what size do you use?"
Link Posted: 7/31/2002 8:02:12 PM EDT
Doesn't bother me at all. I've never had any problems at all. In fact, I generally have more smart asses comments when buying a gun magazine(periodical) or ammo. Just one of the things in life that are facts.

No but you might ask her to pick up a pack of x-tra small condoms [:D]
Link Posted: 7/31/2002 9:21:21 PM EDT
Just make sure they are price marked or the bar code is intact,you don't want the cashier to anounce over the PA system that she needs a price check on a large box of tampons do you?

Doesnt matter.The cashier will still get on the PA screaming at the manager and asking if the kotex is still on sale.Even though I begged her not to.Why is it when they buy it they can slip it in their pocket.BUT when I buy it its the size of a Volkswagen
Link Posted: 7/31/2002 10:29:57 PM EDT
Did it once and was never asked to do it again. Her: Honey, could you go and get me the ones in the green box. Me: Grumble [pissed] Me looking in the aisle: HMMMMMMM. [>:/]2 in a green box. Well these super thin ones can't possably hold that much, better get the super king mattress sized ones.[thinking] Her: how in the f&%# do you expect me to walk with these things between my legs?[pissed] Me to myself: YES [:D]

That's not necessarily true. When I worked for Eckerd Drugs in Austin (30th and Guadalupe store for those that care) back in college, I had two guys come in and buy a large box of condoms, a 12 pack of Budweiser in bottles, and two ready to use enemas. While I didn't care, I sure as hell took notice as I checked them out, as well as giving them a "You boys have fun now..." as they left. Also, it depends on where you work. You'd think the people that work at the more risque places would be jaded, but it's funny to listen to their stories. A few years ago I was looking for a book as a gross out gift for a friend, and I found out through the grapevine that if I wanted it locally there was a place to get it. Unfortunately this place was the local bondage boutique. Anyway, I went in, found the book, and struck up a conversation with the young girl behind the counter, who was very beautiful. I told her I couldn't imagine working in a place like that and that it must get interesting at times. She said she didn't mind it so much, but the worst customers were the older well-off guys with money who'd come in, buy themselves womens costumes, and then ask her if their ass looked good in them trying to pick her up. She said it was all she could do to not be totally disgusted. Then she told me she had read the book I bought and thought it was an interesting subject. Maybe she was pick me up, but if you knew the subject matter, you'd likely have not welcomed the advance. [}:D] Remember the Alamo, and God Bless Texas...
