Today, I woke up on an airplane in Rome. As I was sleeping, I had covered myself and the seat in period blood. FML
I agree, your life sucks 5 392
You deserved it 523

Emma Eisnor tells us more.

Hey OP here! This actually happened when I went on a two week trip to Italy back in the beginning of March. The rest of the trip was actually great I toured the entire country! As for what happened, I was on my period with a pad on and it took me 6 hours of the 8 hour flight to fall asleep, but as soon as I did fall asleep all hell broke loose apparently. I didn’t tell the flight attendants because I was too embarrassed so I kind of just got up and awkwardly waddled away. Could have been worse though!

Bloody hell, that must have been awkward!

Did your period come unexpectedly or did you have a tampon/pad failure? Holy moly!

I can practically feel the mixture of embarrassment and terror you must have felt.

It may have been the altitude that brought it on early.

when in Rome...

I hope you were expecting to go to Rome... otherwise this'd be a double FML!

Murder on the Roman Express! Plot twist, it was just period blood.

As long as you did not wake up to a priest from the Vatican trying to perform an exorcism on you.

Play it off like you spilled marinara sauce! That just might work in Italy.

OP, that’s dreadful! I guess the moral of the story is when traveling “better safe than sorry” unless this was your first period ever. The person I most feel sorry for is the one in the seat next to you and the poor person who has to clean up the seat.

Yeah. "Better safe than sorry" said the dude who has no clue about periods.

I know the feeling, sometimes, even with a pad on, a period can be so strong on certain days that no surface is safe and it just goes through everything!

You’re right with that one!
