    Actual Letter to Proctor and Gamble re: Aunt Flo and Wings...

    Actual letter to Proctor & Gamble

    Dear Mr. Thatcher,

    I have been a loyal user of your Always maxi pads for over 20 years and Iappreciate many of their features.

    Why, without the LeakGuard Core(tm) or Dri-Weave(tm) absorbency, I'd probably never go horseback riding or salsa dancing, and I'd certainly steer clear of running up and down the beach in tight, white shorts.

    But my favourite feature has to be your revolutionary Flexi-Wings. Kudos on being the only company smart enough to realize how crucial it is that maxi pads be aerodynamic. I can't tell you how safe and secure I feel each month knowing there's a little F-16 in my pants.

    Have you ever had a menstrual period, Mr. Thatcher?

    Ever suffered from "the curse"?

    I'm guessing you haven't.

    Well, my "time of the month" is starting right now.

    As I type, I can already feel hormonal forces violently surging through my body. Just a few minutes from now, my body will adjust and I'll be transformed into what my husband likes to call "an inbred hillbilly with knife skills."

    Isn't the human body amazing?

    As Brand Manager in the Feminine-hygiene Division, you've no doubt seen
    quite a bit of research on what exactly happens during your customers'
    monthly visits from "Aunt Flo". Therefore, you must know about the bloating, puffiness, and cramping we endure, and about our intense mood swings, crying jags, and out-of-control behaviour. You surely realize it's a tough time for most women.

    In fact, only last week, my friend Jennifer fought the violent urge to shove her boyfriend's testicles into a George Foreman Grill just because he told her he thought Grey's Anatomy was written by drunken chimps. Crazy!

    The point is, sir, you of all people must realize that America is just crawling with homicidal maniacs in Capri pants...which brings me to the reason for my letter.

    Last month, while in the throes of cramping so painful I wanted to reach
    inside my body and yank out my uterus, I opened an Always maxi-pad, and
    there, printed on the adhesive backing, were these words: "Have a Happy Period."

    Are you f****** kidding me?

    What I mean is, does any part of your tiny middle-manager brain really think happiness - actual smiling, laughing happiness - is possible during a menstrual period? Did anything mentioned above sound the least bit pleasurable? Well, did it, James?

    FYI, unless you're some kind of sick S&M freak girl, there will never be anything "happy" about a day in which you have to jack yourself up on Motrin and Kahlua and lock yourself in your house just so you don't march down to
    the local Walgreen's armed with a hunting rifle and a sketchy plan to end your life in a blaze of glory. For the love of God, pull your head out, man!

    If you just have to slap a moronic message on a maxi pad, wouldn't it make
    more sense to say something that's actually pertinent, like "Put Down the
    Hammer" or "Vehicular Manslaughter Is Wrong", or are you just picking on us?

    Sir, please inform your Accounting Department that, effective immediately,
    there will be an $8 drop in monthly profits, for I have chosen to take my maxi-pad business elsewhere.

    And though I will certainly miss your Flex-Wings, I will not for one minute miss your brand of condescending b*******.

    And that's a promise I will keep... Always.

    ROFL that was great. It's obvious that the makers of feminine products are not women. Those happy little messages make me want to scream.

    As a side note, I really hate those stupid wings too.

    I laughed so hard I pee'd in my pants - ooopps - but anyway all laughing aside I have to say I agreed wholeheartly with that woman but thankfully I do not have to go through this anymore except the mood swings I still kinda get them.... but not as bad, so ladies to those of you who continue to suffer I salute you

    Thanks to Michelle (Kittycats_Delight) for my wonderful
    cheerful and special signature and avatar!!!!!!

    Have a happy period. Oh yea. That always meant I wasn't knocked up, which is worst. Very funny. But not so good if we are thinking about a woman in a postion of power.
