How to get married.

There is a guy at my work who is single and really wants to get married. He's a great guy, successful, religious, hard working, owns his own house, and it's nice. Why single you ask? I have a theory.

No garbage can in the guest bathroom. Seriously. So he has a date over and she's got her period. Awkward. Now she has choose between putting her plastic applicator in her pocket or flushing it. She is NEVER coming back.

Are you with me girls?

ha ha yup must have garbage can in guest bathroom. sounds like you were over there in a similar situation!? just flush it, and flush twice to make sure it goes down....all the way down....

I was over at his house with several co-workers doing a service project. I was not on my period, I'm just sayin' about the trash can. Although there have been other times this has concerned me.

Yikes! What if they don't use tampons but use maxipads?!?! The horror.

Oh, and I learned the hard way that flushing tampons isn't a good idea. Except, I guess I didn't learn, since I still do it.

Guest Bathroom garbage cans are a must.

Maybe for his birthday or Christmas you could all pitch in at the office and buy him one. Then he can find the girl of his dreams and get married.

Kristina, that reminds me, I used to have these Brazillian roomates that used pads and they would throw them in the trash without even rolling them up or wrapping them in tp. It was about 12 years ago, but I could still nearly puke thinking about it.

Me said...

Umm..yeah! Garbage cans (with a liner) are a must in guest bathrooms! NO question about it..its only polite. I've got family members that I am reluctant to go see to see because of this very reason.

We had a bunch of workers from Ecuador that didn't trust the toilet could handle toilet paper, so they very carefully placed ALL USED TOILET PAPER into the wastebaskets in the restroom.

OK, now I'm feeling queasy again.......

Hahaha, I remember this conversation. Has he yet to get one? He had a very "man" home, it needs a female touch.

TJ maybe all the woman in the office should do a service project for him and volunteer thier services. You could help him out with all the little things men are so clueless about. Put a feminine touch on his home. Make it inviting to prospective wives!

hello, my name is amber marie. said...

No garbage can in the guest bath is a major no-no. But if he really wants to get married he should probably just put a sign in his yard. i hear that works wonders. ;)

Hey, my poor dad was left completely in the dark (do NOT tell him or my mom that I posted this, he would just die). His family (with 3 girls!) never told him about periods. Really.

When he and my mom were newlyweds, their little doggy pulled the bathroom garbage contents across the room as little doggies do, and my mom had to explain about periods and tampons and pads.

She asked the obvious question: "How did you live your entire life with two brothers and three sisters and never learn about menstruation????" He basically answered that his sisters sometimes came home from school with "severe headaches." Apparently their family thought it was something that needed to be hush hush.

I still don't understand why. It's mother nature's miracle, preparing a woman's body every month for the possibility of progeny, and then cleaning house to prep for the next month.

Heck is for people that don't believe in gosh
