One Thing I Can Check Off On My ‘Things To Do Before I Die’ List

Background: Every so often at work, you come across a garment of some sorts that has been ripped, torn, dirtied or sullied. When this happens, you have to get permission from your manager to ‘damage out’ the item, which entails filling out a piece of paper and having them sign it.

Um…I have a pair of jeans that we need to damage out.

Why? What’s wrong with them?

[Manager proceeds to look them over]

I don’t see any tears or rips anywhere.



It’s um…not so much a rip in the jeans as it is…uh…the menstrual fluids staining them.

Words can’t describe how I feel right now.

    How does that HAPPEN?!

    It’s not like an all the sudden explosion. Nor is it something that you don’t know is coming, like a sneeze or a punch in the back of the head.

    I promise you, John. It was not me.

    Seriously. I’ve been a woman for almost 40 years. That has never happened in a dressing room.

    You know what I just thought of. Maybe the customer was practicing one of the methods of dealing with your period as advised by Tamp-Action. Remember the brochure? To help save the environment, a woman can choose to USE NOTHING when experiencing menstruation. So don’t hate. She was saving your children from having to deal with pollution … or something like that.

    I wish you guys could have seen Carmen’s reaction to the whole thing when Clay told her about it. I’m sure you can imagine, though. Hilarious.

    My friend once pulled a used tampon out of a pair of pants she was trying on at a department store. I really don’t know what is the matter with people.
