For all you PMSers... this is just plain funny

Dear Kotex,

I recently noticed that the peel-off strip of my pantyliner 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
- Try Kotex blah blah blah other products

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

While you're at it, dump out the coffee at work and remove the chocolate
from the vending machine. I guaran-friggin-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, many containing

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 another 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 store.

So take your tips for living and shove them right up
your ___.

Ovarily Yours,
Miss PMS

why is it that an empty public washroom gets suddenly crowded, and silent just when you go to peel open, and peel off, both the wrapper, and adhesive???

aaand what's with the little kid waiting with their mom in the stall right next to you making attempts to peek into your stall??? [LOL]

we won't talk about the public washroom, and how your toilet's auto flush is not working!...it's a line waiting to go into the first open stall that comes available, which would be your stall. BUMMER!
