So, today I was at Walgreens and decided to pick up a pack of the Depends Silhouette. I know they don't hold more than one wetting, but that's okay—I was only planning on wearing them to class and stuff for fun. Not to bed or anything like that.
Anyway, I was standing in line behind about three people when the women in the beauty department said she could help someone over there. Naturally, I headed right over. Since this particular Walgreens is right across the street from my collage campus, I didn't want to spend too much time in line incase I ran into someone I knew.
This lady was probably in her late 40's, and extremely chatty. She made a lot of small talk while she scanned my items until she went to scan the diapers, she commented with a lot of enthusiasm "Ohhh Depends Silhouette for Women, huh? How are these?" I just smiled awkwardly and said that I haven't tried them. Which wasn't only the truth, I had hoped to hint at the possibility that I wasn't buying them for myself.
She didn't take the hint at all, and continued inspecting the package, "They look so thin, hopefully they don't leak on you honey." Not wanting to admit they were for me, I still didn't say anything. Then she asked what I wore them for. At this point I was genuinely shocked that she would ask something like that—I just looked away and started to swipe my debit card. She still didn't take the hint that I didn't want to talk about it, and kept asking me quetions like, "Are they for at night? ...No? ...Just for during the day?" When I didn't answer, she finally gave up and told me to have a good day.
Such a crazy experience... I've literally been buying diapers for years and this is the first time I've had a cashier say anything. Usually it's the other customers I have to worry about.
