A friend of mine used to be an office manager, and was sometimes the last person out of the building at night. There was a bit of a walk from the exit door to the parking area.

She would look around before/while leaving the building. If she saw any guys hanging around, she walked like she was angry, cussing softly to herself.

It always seemed to work (she's retired now). Even when the guys passed close to her, they didn't seem to want to take on a woman that was PO'd to start!

Reviving an old thread for sybert777, and anyone else who may be pondering how to prep for the women in your lives, because feminine hygiene is serious business.

Thank You Jac'. (I am unaware as to your full first name, so I can only refer to you as "Jac" or "BacpacJac".. BacpacJac was too much to type.

That's a very unique variant of the name.

(Yup, it's FC. I'm not FC, just hail from a family with roots in a small mixed EC-FC community.)

Back on topic - Guys, carrying pads and/or tampons in your kit is a very thoughtful and potentially heroic gesture towards the women in your lives. Both would cover either preference on her part, but even one pad can sometimes save the day, even if it's not the right brand. Sometimes we're just desperate for something. They never have to know that you're thinking of using them as fire starters one day.
