The Hunt for an Emergency Feminine Hygiene Product

Coworker (whispering): Do you have a tampon?

Me: Sure (Because I don’t trust the machine in the ladies room to be stocked or functional, I keep a stash in my cabinet at work. So I take an OB tampon and hand it to her.)

Coworker (looking confused I suppose from the lack of the applicator): What is that?

Me: (pause) It’s a Do-It-Yourselfer.

Coworker: (starts laughing) Are there instructions with it?

Me: (after laughing with her for a minute) It doesn’t have an applicator.

Coworker: Ohhhh… (She starts to walk away.)

Me (calling after her): Hey, you can’t be choosy in your situation!

That’s probably the last time she’ll come to me next time she’s caught off guard!


Thoughts, anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
