The most embarrassing thing I have ever bought involved sex toys. I wore a disguise though so nobody would know who I was. When I got back to the car I slammed it into reverse, backed out, dropped into drive before it finished rolling, and burned out for about a half mile.
Buying anything dealing with your bowels is always humiliating. I once had to buy Pepto, moist toilet wipes and tums. I never returned to that Walgreens again. Condoms, lubricants, and pregnancy tests are sometimes embarassing as well.
That must be something that you squeamish Americans have come up with. As a proud Celt I can tell you that the kilt is a weapon. Wearing nothing underneath and charging the enemy gives you a few extra seconds while your target screams in horror. Or at least cringes.
As for the most embarassing thing to buy - according to my teenage daughter it's anything that I want. Or maybe it's just me
Feminine Napkins...there's like a zillion sizes from Q tip to mattress. I stand and look at the BIG LONG shelves in WalMart while women look at me with that,"I can't believe a wife would send her husband" look on their faces. I can't remember the certain names of them so I just call them "Puddy Pads."
If you really want to get weird looks in the store...buy bananas and condoms!
I don't like buying tampons from young guys working at the register. hahaha Other than that, I don't really mind. Usually, I buy personal items at drug stores because I feel more comfortable there. They've seen it all.
I once had to utilize a hotel gift to store to buy some tampons. They were behind the counter, so the (young) guy asked "what can I get you?" I said tampons and he sort of snickered. He was probably around 18 and I was surprised at his attitude because it was a very nice hotel - you'd think they'd have better employees!
I told the kid that he was going to have one hell of a time finding a girlfriend with an attitude like that towards feminine products.
It's so funny to read all of these. Especially because my site deals with this very thing. Although I can't tell you where it is, I'm sure you could find it following the links in some hubs (which I also wont tell you where those are, although I have authored some in my day)
