    Look, either buy online or get over it. You're getting laid, and taking responsibility to ensure you have safe sex, which is good for you and respectful of your partner. What's to be ashamed of?

    How about next time you look them in the eye and ask them if they're free tonight.

    But why would you expect the cashier to judge you less than you're judging yourself? If you only need birth control, why mask it with other things?
    that would have been awesome, didn't even think of that

    Pretty stupid on her part. Knowingly selling drug paraphernalia to a minor to snort coke is pretty illegal.

    to see what other people think and get opinions and possibly witty comebacks. Thanks for listening

    It's not the TL forums thank goodness

    well if you take each item on its own, nothing out of the ordinary. but then when you put everything together, then it looks suspicious. so IMO the cashier was "just saying".

    if he had bought pop, cups, shaving cream, etc, than it'd totally just pass

    As someone who works customer service at a grocery store, where we sell things like that...I really don't give a fuck and just want to get you out of the store with what you want and the money in return for what you want. If you come through my line with lube, condoms, a can of compressed air, a funnel, and some chai tea concentrate...I'll note it in my head but won't say anything I wouldn't say to the woman buying a couple cans of soup and the latest issue of Southern Lady.
    Now, THIS thing? THIS thing is horrible. It's just awful. It was awful at 60 and it was awful at 58. It's awful at 45. If this dropped off a mob in Wailing Caverns when you were level 17 and being run through by a higher level character, you would equip it ONLY because you don't have trinkets at that level, and it would STILL SUCK.

    If it makes you feel better, I work in a video store and we have an adult room. So when I am ringing up some 70 year old fat guy with a video called "1 in the _ 1 in the _" or the like I just kind of smile on the inside and chat about and do my job. It's not my job to judge, I just want to make sales make the consumer happy and be on my merry minimum-wage way.

    Also, I have old women calling about Magic Mike and if there's going to be a movie called "50 shades of grey" talk about yuck...

    I go through something slightly different at my job. I'm a donation attendant at goodwill, and you'd be surprised the crazy shit people donate.

    The one that I've seen the most reaction to is when a woman brings me a bag of clothing, and say the bag rips/breaks and a pair of panties or a bra falls out...they look absolutely mortified lol. I really don't care personally, and I make no reaction either. I just pick it up and continue on with my job like nothing happened.

    I've actually seen people quickly pull such items from their bags before giving them to me. What, you're afraid of me seeing your lingerie? Seriously? It's not like you're wearing the shit. And it's just underwear, woo hoo. But they come out of their car blushing and hand me the bag. I mean, I can take this two ways: Either they think I'm some sort of creeper (which I most certainly am not, nor do I think I look/act like one) or they think I'm cute and are embarrassed to hand me said items. I dunno.

    The ones I DO respond to, are the people who try to sneak in sex toys and such. Who the fuck is going to buy a used vibrator? Why the fuck would you donate that to goodwill? I will seriously run the fucking car down and make a big deal out of it. Embarrasses the FUCK out of them, let me tell you. Do you fuckwits not believe in the garbage can? It's there for a reason!

    When I go to the store to buy 'unmentionables', I make it as obvious as I can. That is usually ALL I'll get, I won't hide it. 99.9% of the time, nothing is said. But the cashiers where I shop know me lol, and sometimes they get bold enough to go that extra mile. Hilarity ensues. I usually have some witty, embarrassing comment to throw back at them, so they're beet red and chin on floor as I walk away lol. I don't give a fuck. They shouldn't sell the shit if cashiers can't deal with ringing it up.

    I guess I'd get uncomfortable if I was younger and the cashier was a hot chick. But after what I've gone through in life, this sort of thing doesn't phase me at all lol.

    Cashiers who only process your items are called self-checkout.

    Also, I've never really seen any cashiers do anything of the sort. The 'worst' was a girl who said 'have a good time... err night' and who was embarrassed herself.

    the only time it was shameful to buy condoms is when i was around 13-14 years old. I guess i dont blame them for giving me that look. I didnt realize how young i was back then lol.

    There's no reason for anyone to be embarrassed. Protecting yourself and/or your partner is never a bad thing; I'd take a glare from a cashier over a baby or STD any day.

    At least you're getting condoms and not birth control pills / morning after pill-- where the potential of getting more than a "shameful look" is probably higher.

    I'd never worry about it. "Abstinence only" is not my thing, nor is putting myself at unnecessary risk.

    I go about my business, not thinking about how some random right wing cashier may judge me via my purchases, because frankly I couldn't care less.

    A a cashier, I've never done this.
    We don't sell birth control pills or things like that, you have to get them from the pharmacy but we sell condoms, lube and pregnancy tests. I just bag them like everything else.

    EDIT: Though I'll admit I'm one of the people who doesn't like to buy said items from actual people. When I buy things like that I always go through the self service lane.

    Shit like that is another reason why kids don't use birth control. I admit I was embarrassed to buy them when I was like in high school and it shouldn't be I view it as a sign of responsibility saying hey, at least I'm wrapping my shit so I don't have a kid I can't afford.

    Emma Watson is going to be naked in that 50 shades movie, so I wouldn't call it yuck.

    What a silly thing to say, are we really so judgemental nowadays?

    Anyway, I always enjoy buying condoms, it can be a pretty entertaining experience. Make a few jokes with the cashier etc.

    It's the fact that I have 70 year old women who are dripping wet thinking about dungeon rape and bondage that is yuck. The fact that Emma Watson in it means nothing to me, she's not attractive to my tastes as weird as it sounds. Years ago maybe, but I've developed a different taste. I also dislike that stuff as it stands. Regardless of how "tame" it might end up being, it still grosses me out.
