That reminds me of my dad... He always grabs "feminine products" in the grocery store and yells loudly to my sisters "Do you need any more of these?!" just to embarrass them.

True story: I was on a camping trip and a bear had been spotted near the campsite. The first thing the counselor yells (in a REALLY loud voice to scare the bear)? "GIRLS, IF YOU'RE ON YOUR PERIOD, DON'T TAKE OUT THE TAMPON!!!" One girl who was not too bright and didn't get that she could've just ignored it yelled back, "DON'T WORRY, IT'S NOT FOR ANOTHER WEEK." Keep in mind we weren't the only people at camp.

#31-- I thought bears (or at least sharks, so maybe it doesn't apply to bears as well) aren't attracted to menstrual blood because it smells... er... different than the tasty blood in other parts of the body. Something about how it smells like "dead" blood to them.

The Boston Bruins(American Hockey Team) rule cuz 1. They are the best NHL Team. and 2. Their "Mascot" is a bear. Remember; DON'T POKE THE BEAR.

Or she should have had the brains to figure it out on her own. Sorry OP, I'm sure that was quite an embarrassment. Have fun on your camping trip.

My mom practically whispers while in the entire store except in that isle. "DO YOU NEED ANY OF THESE _________?" my response: "mom I'm right beside you!"

This makes me think of my first period, when it was a sunday so the stores were closed and my mom got to the neighbours to ask for tampons because: "My daugher is having her period for the first time!" Thanks mom. Now te whole neighbourhood knows i'm finally bleeding out my vagina. -_-

What she was really announcing was "My daughter is finally ready to have BABIES!!!! Who wants to make me a grandma???"

Do you have any idea how awful it is to have the period when camping, without toilets or shower? Only a mother who really cares would think of asking that question.

A "mother who cares" would have asked it privately to avoid causing an embarrassing situation that will haunt this poor girl for years!

#61-- I don't see why it should be treated any differently from other bodily functions. Pooping while camping is also more difficult and more uncomfortable, but it's still pretty self-explanatory. And don't most campsites have showers or at least a bathroom nowadays?

GRAMMAR NAZI COMING THROUGH, GRAMMAR NAZI! I believe the correct spelling would be "private". Thank you, I'm out.

I think parents just enjoy asking this weird questions :( Im sorry that you had to be there and to be part of that question..

My problem with this is that it shouldn't be a "weird" question. People still treat menstruation like the woman has the plague. It's a natural body function and no one should be embarrassed to talk about it. Of course I always get the stare of death from my daughter when the topic comes up.....

School camping trips tend to be on campsites, so I would assume you take a big supply of pads/tampons/whathaveyou and change them in the toilet. Not that hard.
