Ah I didn't even notice all the posts had that. My fault. Either way, OP shouldn't be embarrassed to buy condoms. Everyone does it, nothing to be ashamed of as long as you're of age.

She's not necessarily too young, one of my best friends gets so scared at the thought of buying condoms that he has to get a friend to pick them up for him. And he's 20 years old. Some people feel really embarrassed at the thought of anyone knowing anything about their sex life. And then there's all the different types of anxiety disorders which can cause you to feel awkward or scared about just about anything, even if you know it's not logical. Possibly OP has some type of anxiety disorder and

There's a difference between posting something in relative anonymity online where people can't match your username to your actual identity easily to walking into a store, most likely nearby your home, and doing something you find embarrassing. For one, people that you often come across in your daily life could see you doing this embarrassing thing. The average person that knows OP isn't going to immediately connect this FML to OP, unless OP told them of what happened, and most FML readers aren'

After all the FML posts about snarky cashiers, is it really so hard to believe FMLers would want to avoid the potential blow to their self-esteem?

I call bullshit. All they have to to do is look at the self check out screen, or your receipt, and look in your bag.

Regardless of gender... if you can't buy condoms without being embarrassed... probably shouldn't be using them

#90- The cashier would probably think up something then, realize that they don't have a reason to buy condoms. Someone may take buying condoms as a morale booster.Ex: "Yes! I'm gonna get laid!" Or something of that nature... I agree with #112 also Anyways, if you're the kind of person who doesn't like buying condoms in public, then there is this thing called the Internet. It has EVERYTHING...or so I've been told.

I know that feel. I bought the extra-large size for my boyfriend (the regular size pinches like the dickens), and the cashier said something to the effect of, "I doubt a girl that looks like you could get a guy that well-endowed." Snarky cashiers ruin it for everyone. But OP should have proudly displayed the box, and if anyone raised an objection to it, she should have said, "Yeah, I'm having sex" and walked out, like a boss.

I personally don't think being embarrassed to buy condoms means the OP isn't ready. she's Ok having sex with her boyfriend, she's not completely Ok with the world (people in that store) knowing she has sex. and the person should have just looked at the self check out screen, it would have shown that you scanned it.

I was thinking that too. People way too quick to judge. Oh and I still get a little embarrassed buying them, and I'm.... Uh, older. Luckily I work in medical, I get them for free :)

Ain't no shame in gettin' some. :p But really, cashiers see people buy condoms all the time. Unless you're really young, they shouldn't think anything of it.

I'm a cashier, and depending on the customer, it gets awkward. Like the overweight couple who had to be 45-50 years old buying extra large condoms... But usually, condoms aren't all that awkward.

You should never rely on someone else for your contraception, take control yourself, no matter what your gender

Never be embarrassed to buy condoms! Unless they're Trojan Mini's. Ehh, even if you do make sure you buy a hundred. Then who's gonna say anything?

Seriously 100? They're probably not 100% failproof but yes, condoms prevent against STDs. They're one of the few things that do. That's why when you go to the clinic to get pills they always ask you multiple times if you want condoms as well as the pills don't protect against STDs but the condoms do.

Okay I'm sorry, but I've used just about every mobile FML app (aside from on a Windows phone) and they ALL have gender icons. I don't understand how people are constantly using that excuse.

Reply

I've always been able to see the gender icon. I've heard the location is sketchy with some devices. Mine has never shown the location.

For some reason my computer is on a weird mobile version of FML. The only things listed are the twitter, Facebook, and comments buttons. The Date and the YDI and FYL buttons. I DO NOT have gender icon, username, or location listed for me. I have to read the comments for those things.

What's weird is I can see the gender icon on my app, but not in my browser. FML is the only site I use purely on my phone because of how much nicer the layout is.
