Thread: I faced fear

  1. #1

    Default I faced fear

    I faced my fear and gone to the dollar store to buy protective underwear. THey are not exactly diapers but since I was running out I needed some to last me until my order from ebay came in.

    I got to the register and the cashier looked at them and I said a lie but I could not face my ultimate fear. I said that they were for a neighbor. He was nice and did not laugh or smile about it.

    Does anyone else have good stories of purchasing diapers from the store?

    One time buying IC pants, I was getting another pair and the lady at the pharmacist counter ask what they look like so happened to be wear a pair and pulled the top up so she could see them. She found what I was looking for. Wearing for need you get over the fear of buying real fast.

    The cashiers do not care. In the least. If you just act normal they won't look twice. If you feel you need a story for some reason a grandparent would probably work better than a neighbor.

    I think in all the times I have gone to buy, there's only been one conversation about why I was buying them, and I was dumb enough to start it. In my defense, I was about 12. More recently, I've had questions about whether or not I had a club or discount card in order to get the cheaper price but nothing about why I was buying them. This is as it should be since it's none of their business. Just take your purchase to the counter, pay your money, and walk out.

    Trever has a good point, the cashiers don't really care about what you are buying in the least bit.

    As long as you don't freak out, and you accept that you are buying 'x item', then they really don't give another look at you.

    If you feel awkward try to talk about something easy to lighten the mood. If you feel the need to talk. Try talking about sports or recent movies.

    For all the baby/diaper items I have purchased (or for that matter girls' clothing), I have never been asked about the purchase each for normal purchase questions: debit or credit, do you have a store card, etc.

    As others have said, the cashiers don't care.

    Cashiers have to show respect or else they can get fired or temporally removed for disrespecting the customer.

    I guess I should consider myself being fortunate that I don't have to worry about any embarrassing moments when buying diapers in a store. I'm 64 so it really isn't that uncommon for us seniors to be buying diapers, etc for problems with incontenence. Little do they know though that I am not incontinent and buying the diapers, wipes and so on for my own fun and enjoyment of using them.

    I remember my first time buying diapers. I went to a store that I hardly ever shopped at, bought them almost as if it was porn, and I had this whole elaborate story planned out. I knew without a doubt that the price would be wrong or they wouldn't scan and the cashier would loudly announce that they needed a price check on the large size adult diapers, maximum absorbency. And the clerk would say it twice in very... measured... tones. I had a story ready just in case. They were for my grandmother, yes, she's a heavy woman hence the size (I'm a chubby toddler myself). Who, ME? No, these aren't for ME! What do you think, I'm one of those "adult babies" from Jerry Springer? Hurr durr, not me! My grandmother. And as Shakespeare wrote, I would doth protest too much.... I had it down to the last detail, but the cashier didn't even blink. Though I was relieved that I didn't have to lie, I felt a bit sheepish for even thinking that it would be a big deal in the first place. Now, fuck it. I wear. I shop in the stores I normally go to when I have to buy incontinence products. I don't even blink twice anymore. Someday you'll get there, it'll be wonderful, and you'll look back on this first time of yours and chuckle at this rite of passage.

    Yeah, my first time was a bit of a nightmare. I stared stupidly at the diaper aisle, too scared to move, for so long that an employee actually came to watch me (probably suspected I was shoplifting!) Then when I finally brought my Depends to the register, wanting to fall into the Earth from the shame, the lady simply rung them up and wished me a pleasant evening. It's never as bad as we think it is!
