WARNING...POSSIBLE GAG ALERT!!
Anyway, today I'm talking to a co-worker about how nice my new gym is except for the fact that there are signs everywhere in the locker room that state:
PLEASE DO NOT FLUSH ANYTHING EXCEPT PHYSICAL WASTE AND TOILET PAPER - PLEASE DO NOT FLUSH TAMPONS!!
So I say to her: "What JACKASS would flush a tampon down a toilet..how asinine can you get?"......well um, it seems that she is that very jackass....wow, my bad..lol
She told me that her entire life since puberty, she's flushed tampons down the toilet and she frankly thought people who didn't were gross.
This launched a large discussion/debate between all 30 women (and sadly, some very embarrassed men) in the vicinity.
My WHOLE life (god, we're dramatic) it has been an unwritten rule to NEVER flush tampons...then when I was living with my aunt in my 20's, I saw firsthand why...my cousin had been doing this and one day, it LITERALLY blew up in her face..yep, toilet backed up and overflowed..flooded the bathroom and most of the hallway..not sexy.
The plumber found like 20 of them in the drain pipe..*GAG*
So I take it upon myself to poll the crowd..looks like a mostly "NO, don't flush" crowd...but the ones that DO??...good gawd, they're bat-shit crazy.
One lady and I debated (yes, it was a slow work day) about throwing away pads but flushing tampons...I personally think that if you can wrap a sopping ass pad up and trash it, you can do the same with a tampon...she didn't agree..I wanted to yell: "It's THE SAME FUCKING THING!!!"..but of course I didn't, cuz I'm a lady...ok, stop laughing.
Now, here's the question of the week (don't worry, there are no other questions or weeks..whatev.)
DO YOU FLUSH OR TRASH??
