For Women Only!!

Dear Kotex,

I recently noticed that the peel-off strip of my pantyliner had a bunch
of
"Kotex Tips for Life" on it. Annoying advice such as:

*Staying active during your period can relive cramps.
*Avoiding caffeine may help reduce cramps and headaches.
*Drink 6-8 glasses of water a day to keep you hydrated and feeling
fresh.
*Try Kotex blah blah blah other products.

Obviously the individual behind this was someone who has never possessed
a
functioning set of ovaries. Go ahead and tell a menstruating woman that
drinking 6-8 glasses of water will help keep her feeling fresh. Like we
need
more fluid inside our bloated bodies from hell......but go ahead.....I
triple-dog-friggen-dare-ya. See what happens and report back. I'll wait.

While you're at it, dump out the coffee at work and remove the choco
late
from the vending maching. I garan-damn-tee you that the first responders
will be females who just ovulated.

Staying active will relieve headaches and cramps.... Well, guess what -
the

only activities that interest me is eating...sleeping...bitching....or
crying for no apparent reason...and oh....does ripping someone's head of
count as a friggen' activity?????

Look, females don't need or want tips for living on their feminine
hygiene
products. Younger girls are already hearing "helpful" crap like that
from
elderly relatives. Veteran females have already concocted their own
recipes
for survivial, many containing alcohol and barbituates.

Printing this crap advice while sneaking in ads for the brand that was
already purchased is just plain annoying, not to mention rude, and is
enough
to send a girl running to the Always brand.

It's not a fun time, but DO NOT try to cheer us up by adding smiley
faces
or
bunnies or flowery cutesy crap to your products or the packaging. Put
the
crap in a plain brown wrapper so we can throw it in our carts discreetly
and
have it blend in among the wine and beer.

There is nothing more annoying than having a blinding pink package
announcing your uterine state to everyone in the store. Why don't ya
just
add an in-store microphone to the damn package and announce that ......
hellooooo, another female in the store is on the rag!!!!

So take your tips for living and your cute bunnies and the smiley faces
and
shove them right up your ass!!

P.S. How about adding a free sample of Pamprin and maybe a shot of
bourbon
to your packages instead?

You're getting an amen here even if you didn't ask for one!

I never bothered to read those helpful tips. It was probably written by some male who has no idea what we go through every month!
