TMI alert: I've had to change a pad while in a car on a long road trip with no bathroom or rest area around for miles. If you do it properly, and use wet wipes and sanitizer on your hands afterward, AND thoroughly wrap up the used pad in layers of paper towel and stuff it in the new pad's plastic wrapper, it's really not that gross. What are you supposed to do, let the blood seep through your pants? I hope that in saying the OP's girlfriend is "disgusting" and that he should dump her, you guys are really commenting not on her actions, but on the context. Her actions, in the right context, aren't gross. But doing what she did in a crowded public place with a bathroom nearby IS gross.
Yeah, the difference is definitely that you had no choice as to where you could change. This girl only had to leave for a couple of minutes to a better and more convenient environment than a movie theatre. I feel so sorry for the boyfriend in this instance. Even just out of respect, one shouldn't change a their bloody pad in a movie theatre...or anywhere in a public space that isn't a bathroom. It's just nasty. I refuse to change my sanitary items in front of my boyfriend...ANYWHERE. Why? Because it's gross enough to have to face it as a girl, but no one should have to see it. It's a toilet thing! Might as well let everyone watch you going to the toilet if you want to change pads in public. :/
I do believe I would start carrying a gallon of 'Germ-X' around her.
She is definitely disgusting!!!! Ugh I can't believe you didn't dump her!
All I could think upon reading this was literally, "What the fuck." I am at a loss for words! What is wrong with her?! I would have said "Are you serious? There's this thing called....a bathroom!"
Don't be silly! If she went to the bathroom she'd miss something in the film. Much better to just change it right there, obviously. Seriously though, that is the most disgusting thing I've ever heard! That would literally never have even occurred to me. Also... I don't get how the hell she managed it. Or why she couldn't just wait 'til the end of the movie...
463-embarrassed?! enuf to put it in her purse but not to go to the bathroom to change it discreetly? that doesnt make any sense. she's just plain disgusting, and op maybe has some kind of confidence issues cause no man I date would stick w me if I tried pulling a stunt like that! ugh!
