What Items Would You Be Too Embarrassed To Buy Over The Counter?

Here is a list of the top items some people feel embarrassed buying over the counter..

Head Lice Shampoo
Anti-Fungal medications and Foot Powders
Viagra, Condoms and Personal Products
Suppositories, Laxatives and Anti-Diarrhoea medications
Large quantities of Alcohol
Hemorrhoid Creams
Rogaine? and certain hair products
Anything purchased in coins/change.

There was no mention of sex toys!!

Is there anything you’d feel embarrassed buying over the counter? Do you have a tale to tell?
Funny replies are very welcome

Oooh, Monday, l could do with the two handed toe nail clippers to carve into my parrot beak type nail, that’s next to my baby piggy toe!
It is so awful, l would die if l had to show it to anyone!
A slap of nail varnish disguises it slightly!! Ha!!

When I was about 16, I plucked up the courage to buy some condoms from my local chemist. I took a deep breath, walked in and asked for 'A packet of...... you know.'

Luckily, the woman knew exactly what I wanted.

I remember 45 years ago when l was having my first baby, l had to pack a bag for my admission to the maternity ward.
It stated, l needed to bring with me some Dr Whites maternity sanitary pads that were really, really thick.
No way, was l going to go in the chemist to buy them, so l made my husband get them!

It’s funny how embarrassed you are at a young age! These days, l wouldn’t bat an eyelid!

Who remembers the time when ST's were sold wrapped in brown paper parcels and magically appeared from under the counter ?
Kids go in with a note from their mother and given a brown paper parcel.... intrigue must have outweighed the 3p for sweets on the way home.

I think as we get older we care less about things like that - in fact it's expected of us really. I'm sure whatever I ask for in Boots, someone has asked for much worse.

Puddle, I remember people washing pieces of rags they used for that purpose and pegged them out on the washing line to dry!

Not a pretty sight on a windy day!!

That was lucky ... my elder brother used to think they were called Doc Marten's until I put him straight one day.
