  Today, my girlfriend tried to change her pad while we were sitting in a crowded movie theatre. She succeeded and slipped the used pad into her purse. I can't get rid of the memory, and I don't think I can ever eat popcorn again. FML

This girl that sat in front of me in health class took out her used pad once IN THE MIDDLE OF CLASS. Whenever I see her, all I think about is the pad. :/

Yeah. Or at least before. But I do know some people who, since have paid or their ticket, will stay for the whole thing, damnit!!! I guess that she was a little extreme, but it also reflects I think on their relationship. Way way too settled in the comfort zone.

honestly i dont know why u got thumbed down. Honestly if my gf did that I WOULD dump her thats fucking disgusting to an extreme. Not that fucking difficult to go to the bathroom! Thats just disgusting, fyl OP,

I don't think I've ever heard of anything this gross before...she didn't feel the need to go to the bathroom like every other regular person in the world?

She's gross

I woulda left her right there. It's not just disgusting, unhygienic, and probably illegal, it's obviously awkward for others and sucks for whomever sits in that seat next. Hope you like tappin' that op because that is some nasty fucking shit.

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.

The difference of course is that you dud this because there was no other option. She did this because she didn't want to miss the movie? OP's gf is nasty... there is no reasonable explanation for her actions.


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. :/

Just so you know Miss I'm I proud I-ranian, you are not part of the middle east since your people would rather isolate themselves by thinking they own the Gulf. Congrats on your failure ;)

406- completely irrelevant. I'm sure you were just trying to gather attention and possible thumbs up, but instead you came out looking like an immature dick. Gtfo

Agreed. Any woman/girl old enough to be having menstrual cycles should be old enough to know what is unhygienic and also, what is socially unacceptable behavior.

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!"

  VeganVampyre  |  26

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...

Some chick a year younger than me in middle school used to carry her used "items" in her purse instead of throwing them in the was disgusting.

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!
