Do I need this from my sanitary napkins?

  1. So, I have my period-oh joy!

    For the longest time I have used Always Ultra Thin sanitary napkins. I buy them every month. Yesterday, I bought a new package at the tore. I opened one and went to peel the paper off the sticky part, I noticed it had a message on it-it said "Have a happy period!"

    I mean, is it just me or do you ladies not want to be cheered up about your period by your sanitary napkin seller either? :push:
     
  2. LOL!!! I haven't seen these yet!

    Kinda like a fortune napkin instead of a cookie. :lol:
     
  3. Copied from an email I received:

    Dear Kotex,
    I recently noticed that the peel-off strip of my pantiliner had a
    bunch of "Kotex Tips for Life" on it.
    Annoying advice such as:

    - Staying active during your period can relieve cramps.
    - Avoiding caffeine may help reduce cramps and headaches.
    - Drink 6-8 glasses of water a day to keep you hydrated and
    feeling fresh.
    - Try Kotex blah blah blah other products.

    Obviously the person behind this was someone who has never
    possessed a functioning pair of ovaries. Go ahead and tell a
    menstruating woman TO HER FACE that drinking 6-8 glasses
    of water will help keep her feeling fresh. See what happens
    and report back. I'll wait here.

    While you're at it, dump out the coffee at work and remove the
    chocolate from the vending machine. I guaran-damn-tee that the
    first responders will be females who just ovulated.

    Look, females don't need or want tips for living on feminine hygiene
    products. Younger girls are already hearing "helpful" crap like that
    from their elderly relatives. Veteran females have already concocted
    their own recipes for survival, most containing alcohol.

    Printing out **** advice while sneaking in ads for the brand THAT
    WAS ALREADY PURCHASED is just plain annoying, not to mention
    rude and enough to send a girl running to the Always brand.

    Mostly we'd like to forget that we even need these products.
    It's not a fun time, but DO NOT try to cheer us up by adding smiley
    faces or bunnies or flowery cutesy crap to your products or the
    packaging. Put the **** in a plain brown wrapper so we can throw it
    in our carts discreetly and have it blend in among the wine and beer.
    There is nothing more annoying than having a blinding pink package
    announcing your uterine state to everyone in the damn store.

    The ultimate goal of your product should be functional invisibility
    at every stage, including the point of purchase.

    So take your tips for living and shove them right up your ass.
    (Try drinking six to eight glasses of water to make you feel
    fresher while you're doing it!)

    Ovarily Yours

    Miss PMS
     
  4. OMG that is just too funny.

    I'm sure they do that to cheer you up but i can see you going WTH is this about.
     
  5. Okay...I should NOT be laughing out loud at work (not to mention I shouldn't be on this forum!). That is hilarious!!!

    I wish they'd do the same thing...plain box. Instead I get a Gerber Daisy so everyone can see what I'm buying. Lovely. And you know my hubby won't buy them for me.

    Jeez, I get so B*tchy when I'm having mine that I scare my hubby. LOL He's a good sport though. =D
     
  6. it does not cheer me up at all-it mostly makes me think WTF?

    and, that email was hysterical-I love it!
     
  7. I saw those before on the pantyliners. I got confused at first cause I thought it was directions/instructions then I read it. BF asked if those were like fortune cookies. I said hell no.
     
  8. Yea, I don't think I want to be getting those kind of messages on my sanitary napkin. That HAD to be a man who came up with that bright, bright, idea!!!! And I'll bet---he's not married!!!!!
     
  9. :roflmfao::roflmfao::lol::lol: @ the email Sanguar posted.

    I've never seen messages before.. I get really b**chy when I'm on my period. Messages like that would probably make me :mad: though. Who the heck came up with "Have a happy period?" There's nothing happy about it :rant:
     
  10. Man thats crazy!! I do agree with the packaging they need to make it more discreet. Guys will never understand what we go thru during that one week every month.
     
  11. Sanguar - please tell me you sent that to them! Please!
     
  12. that is freaking hilarious (the email)!!!!!!!!!!! My dog is loking at me weird because I am laughing so hard!!!!!!!!!
    My complaint is about packaging too....why on earth does the tampax box need to be bright blue??!!?? When it's that time of the month I want to take the box and bean someone in the head with it until they're blue!!!
     
  13. You know what I just thought of? What if I (or anyone else for that matter) were trying to get pregnant? They sure as heck aren't going to have a happy period-and I think that message would drive them crazier than it drove me! I know when we were trying for my youngest-seeing my period come was the last thing I wanted.
     
  14. :blink::roflmfao: you know a man thought that was a good idea....

    that's why i like ob. it's white, but the box is teeny so you can hide them. and no aplicators so sneaking them from your purse into your hand to run through a busy restaurant to use the restroom is a breeze. :biggrin:

    i would cry if i were trying to get pregnant and i got one of those napkins. or what if heaven forbid you'd just miscarried? :cry::cry::cry:
     
  15. Could you imagine opening a kitkat and finding a message "how many of these have you had this week fatty?" written on the inside of the wrapper?
