I was at the supermarket to buy two packets of nappies, and had them lying face down on the checkout trolley belt (as per the picture below). There was a couple lined up in front of in front of me, and the gentleman inquired about my purchase.
He wanted to know if I was buying incontinence pads. If you look quickly at the packet I can understand how somebody could come to that conclusion, but it still begs the question why you would engage a stranger in a conversation about a personal medical condition.
I joked and said yes they were for me (for the record I’m not incontinent) and then clarified that they were in fact nappies. He laughed too and he clarified that he actually thought they were for, and I quote – “your missus”!
