Men: When you're getting a prescription from CVS & your wife calls and asks you to grab her some tampons because she's out, it is in your best interest not to return empty handed. And when you go back to the store to get what she asked for the first time, you'd better have chocolate as well.
If your wife calls and asks you to pick up feminine products, you should already know it is in your best interest to comply, You take enough verbal beatings over the next few days without adding to it.
Wives, make sure you are very specific about the product they are suppose to get.
Men just don't "know" what is what. Here is a little assistance in guiding your male counterpart to the proper thing.
1 - main color and secondary color of packaging.
NOTE - do NOT use female color names, black, red, blue, orange, pink are all valid, things like chartreuse just confuses us.
2 - Brand name
3 - type (tampon, pad, wings, extra long, etc).
4 - any other identifying information.
5 - The most important, Text the information and a picture of the package.
Or even if mr. monthly grouch is here, you can not complain as I am sure they tried their damnedest to get what you wanted and you should revel in the glory he actually brought something home.
