Apparently, some guy had an argument with his girlfriend, and the next day left her an “I’m sorry” offering of presents, along with a note which made me giggle like a schoolgirl:
“The chocolates are cos I love you.
“The flowers are cos I’m sorry.
“The Tampax is cos I’m still not sure why I’m apologising so I guess you’ll need these any day now.”
Needless to say, some people have failed to see the humor in it because, as we all know, no woman has ever been pre-menstrually irritable.
Of course, it’s only going to make things worse for him, as all experienced men will acknowledge, but it’s worth it.
Oh, and for those who think it’s “passive-aggressive”, what would you think if he’d just plonked down a box of Tampax and his note read, “Take one and call me in the morning.”
Now that’s aggressive.
