MONTHLIES! (That should scare away the men)

Because Mrs. Who had the courage to bring up a delicate subject that would/should make many men squeamish, I feel the need to share also.

I'm talking about *monthlys*.

Turn back now.
I'm about to ruin a great action film for you if you don't.
Run. Hide.

You've been warned.


Okay, now that all the guys are still reading because they want to know how I can relate monthlys to an action movie...

Question for the ladies:
When did feminine hygiene products start packaging their products by weight?
Not weight of the product, but weight of the woman?

I get why there's such a product, but apparently, I missed that memo.
I accidentally grabbed a package intended for a woman somewhat larger than I am.
And it wasn't until I had unwrapped a pad before I realized something was amiss, and actually looked closer at the packaging.

You'd think it wouldn't matter much, but these things are inches longer than anything I have ever seen before.
They work just fine, but there's a lot of extra material.
I feel like I'm wasting a lot of perfectly good product.

Honestly, I feel a bit like this:

And I have yet to fall into Bruce Willis' taxi and save the world.

What a rip off.

LMAO!!! (Enough so that my husband is coming over to read you too, despite the warnings.)

I haven't noticed the labelling, but I had noticed the 'extra'...all that 'extra' didn't feel right to me.

I'm going to be reading more carefully now.

I haven't seen those, but it sounds like a great idea. And I would wear the ones for the really big women for the length of it, because honestly, a mighty fart expelled through one just doesn't smell as bad.

I love the plus size pads. Primarily cause I am plus sized, and the fact I don't have to use the overnights doubled up. I was so thrilled when they came out with them. And I went to Walmart's the other day, looking for them, and it seemed like they'd disappeared again. A size 8 woman's body don't fit someone's double or more. Extra material is a blessing. You don't worry about spots.
