To think it was unnecessary for my Tesco man to discuss my tampons on my doorstep?

Mrs Poop: 'Morning, how are you?'

Mr Tesco ' Morning, just the one substution today, sper plus tampons instead of super plus extra, is that ok?'

Mrs Poop ' oh err, yes thats fine blush'

Now I know these are a fact of life, but really, did he have to say that? Why not just say, 'just the one substitution' and let me deal with it?

So AIBU or nay?

I have no answer but I do think it's rather funny

Especially since I ordered germoloids and had a similar fear grin

Sorry but this has given me a chuckle on a quite horrible day.

If he's like most blokes I know....he'll have been more embarrassed than you.
They may have even drawn straws for that job (double blush )

YABU, if you don't want to discuss tampons then don't get them delivered!

... or get a Mooncup...

A teensy bit unreasonable, but I'm now extra pleased I didn't order the Durex gels that were on special offer this week.
"sorry, Mrs G, 'feel' is out of stock, will you be happy with 'tingle'?"

lulu i have a mooncup but need those for the extra heavy days.

Yes it was very loud. You know one of those 'Allo darlin' types with a Sid James laugh to boot.

I think he thoroughly enjoyed saying it tbh, there was no shame on his part. Bet he had a good laugh with his mates down the pub after.

Neighbs were putting bins out, so yes, they would have heard blush

Yes on reading germaloids and Durex posts, could have been much much worse I suppose.

I will accept I am a teeny weeny bit U.

FairLadyRantALot Tue 23-Jun-09 15:43:21

oh rofling here....and rofling even more at GP's durex gel that would have been embaressing...

MamaLazarou Tue 23-Jun-09 15:51:32

Ha ha, how embarassing! I would have been absolutely mortified!

(How I wish mooncups worked for me)

YANBU, this happened to me the other week with Durex when it was BOGOF on the 12 packs. I ordered 2 different types (not sure why, variety for the sake of it??) and they sent 2 of the same. Its bloody well WRITTEN DOWN so why they have to discuss it I have no idea, they could just hand you the sheet and that all ok?

Secretly think they like to pick out the embarrassing ones to add a little spice to their day grin

poopscoop Tue 23-Jun-09 16:08:47

oh god PTH - I would have died at that!

PatTheHammer Tue 23-Jun-09 16:11:40

I just laughed, since I had a 5mth baby on my hip and a 3yr old I guess he understood the need for Durex grin

Made a mental note never to order lube though......

MarmadukeScarlet Tue 23-Jun-09 16:16:16

Ye gods what would they send instead of that, olive oil?

AnyFucker Tue 23-Jun-09 16:18:31

poops, you were a teensy bit precious IMO

tampons are a fact of life

even for men

FabBakerGirlIsBack Tue 23-Jun-09 16:22:09

I think you are being a bit U. He was letting you know what the change was, before you unpacked your shopping, in case you didn't want it.

I guess he noticed you were a woman and probably assumed you had periods, or someone in your house did. Heck, maybe he even knew what they were. wink

<secretly jealous of PTH ordering 12 pack condoms on BOGOF>

<works out how long that would do us>

PatTheHammer Tue 23-Jun-09 16:34:08

Mmelindt.... please no need to be jealous, that will probably last all year at this rate blush

FabBakerGirlIsBack Tue 23-Jun-09 16:52:56

Make a start tonight....
