...to be dying of embarrassment

So lovely builder (who we've known for some time, professionally and socially) comes round to quote for a job in our bedroom. I've moved things away from the area where he needs to measure up, including the bin, but did it in a hurry as was running late and on way out ahead of him coming later. When moving I did drop the bin but thought I'd picked everything up that had fallen out.

Anyway, fast forward to a couple of hours later. I'm standing on one side of bed as builder kneels down to measure up area on the other side. When he stands up he has a pantyliner stuck to his knee, complete with its wrapper. I lunge forward to get it off him but he's already got it in his hand. We both look at it and, at this stage, I am just willing the world to swallow me up. He hands it to me and I stuff it in my pocket. He makes gracious exit and now I am just dying and coming out in a cold sweat every time I think of it. Will I ever get over this? And can I face him again?

He's a grown man, I'm sure he's seen a sanitary towel before!

Sorry.

He's probably seen worse. At least it wasn't a beaker....

Poor old you.

Used or unused, that is the question?

LittleBrownRabbit Sat 07-Feb-15 20:02:27

Depends if it was used or not.

BigRedBall Sat 07-Feb-15 20:02:49

Was it visibly dirty with human fluid? grin if not, you needn't worry!

Pointlessfan Sat 07-Feb-15 20:02:51

I thought it was going to be a condom!

EveBoswell Sat 07-Feb-15 20:03:36

Don't be embarrassed, OP. As gorgeous said, he's probably seen it all and more. Is he married? Have a wine

If it's any consolation, a mechanic was trying to fit my luck nut box back in my glove box this week then awkwardly said he'd leave it to me. A minute or two later I saw that there was an unused but wrapperless tampon at the front of the glove box!

I'm so sorry but I'm howling laughing here.

SantasLittleMonkeyButler Sat 07-Feb-15 20:07:16

Oh dear grin.

Have a glass of wine. It'll all be forgotten by morning - possibly wink.

Criiiiinge - sorry. One day you'll see the funny side I'm sure grin

Aeroflotgirl Sat 07-Feb-15 20:11:56

Oh yes used or unused grin

TRexingInAsda Sat 07-Feb-15 20:17:55

Used - YANBU. Unused - meh, don't worry about it.

ToBeeOrNot Sat 07-Feb-15 20:20:46

It must be used surely, if as suggested it escaped when the bin was dropped. Unless people are in the habit of putting unused ones in the bin for fun?

Celeriacacaca Sat 07-Feb-15 20:30:42

Used but unmarked. 'Nuf said.

Ilovehamabeads Sat 07-Feb-15 20:46:28

Omg hahaha properly laughing at this one. Yanbu to be dying inside grin

lougle Sat 07-Feb-15 20:59:27

Haha! Auto-correct. Lock nut box - the box that holds my lock nut key and some bolts for my wheels.

Used but unmarked? It's the thin end of the wedge....

BigRedBall Sat 07-Feb-15 21:02:10

You have my sympathies OP!

At least it wasn't stained though! Eh?!

tarashill Sat 07-Feb-15 21:21:17

You've got to be thankful for small mercies here. It was unmarked.grin
