Couldn't get it to play but while we have the ladies attention, enjoy this.<br><br>This is an actual letter from an Austin woman sent to American company Proctor and Gamble regarding their feminine products. She really gets rolling after the first paragraph. It's hilarious and is PC Magazine's 2007 editors' choice for best webmail-award-winning letter.<br><br>Dear Mr. Thatcher,<br><br>I have been a loyal user of your 'Always' maxi pads for over 20 years and I appreciate many of their features. Why, without the Leak Guard Core or Dri-Weave 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. <br>But my favorite 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.<br><br>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. <br>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?<br><br>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 behavior. <br>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!<br><br>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. <br>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.'<br><br>Are you f*****g kidding me? <br>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.<br><br>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?<br><br>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 bulls**t. <br>And that's a promise I will keep....*Always.*<br><br>Best,<br>Wendi Aarons<br>Austin , TX<br><br><br><br>oh yeah, that's going in the blog
That was very funny. <br><br>Now a question from an ignorant male who's wife is out of town so I can't ask her. Did MaxiPads ever actually print, "Have a Happy Period" on the adhesive backing?<br><br>AH, google to the rescue: Have a Happy Period <br><br>Several hits showed the adhesive backing.<br><br><br>
Like the husband who, when asked who makes the decisions in his family, said" My wife and I share in the decision making. She takes care of the little things, like: Buying a new car, getting the home loan, education for the kids, and I take care of the big decisions like: World economy, The war in Iraq, Global warming etc "<br><br>dave<br><br><br><br>
