I've been pretty discreet in buying and wearing diapers for a number of years, though, part of me has always remained nervous being young, in college, and from a small community. Tonight while buying more diapers at Walgreens, I was officially "called out" for wearing a diaper in public.
The weather was warm today in NC, so I opted for shorts over jeans. I've been sick recently, so I spent my weekend diapered and used quite a few more then expected. While on my last Depend (yes, I hate them too, I just cant buy REAL diapers at college) I decided it was time to restock on Depends and Goodnites, the two easiest diapers for me to buy and wear.
I was wet (and showing) when I walked into the store, and while holding my Depends in one arm and reaching down to pick up Goodnites in the other, I heard a girl (who was about 5 years old) behind me say to her mom "look, that boy wears diapers" and was pointing to my diaper poking from the top of my shorts.
The girls mom quickly apologized and I heard her explain "sometimes, people need to wear diapers no matter their age." I was really shocked and embarrassed, though, I applaud the mother for teaching her daughter a great lesson.
It felt weird buying the diapers after that though. I've had this on my mind for a few hours. I've changed in public and boughten diapers many times. I've thrown my old diapers away at rest stops where I am sure people have seen me, though, never said anything. Has this ever happened to anyone else before with buying?
