It's only awkward because they make it awkward. There's nothing wrong with a man buying his lady some tampons/pads but they get all nervous and weird. Even worse with condom buyers. Cashiers don't know you and they won't remember you unless you make it something to remember
I had a feeling that you were reer masri.Once I went to the pharmacy to get it, in Egypt. So I go to the till right, behind the till there's this guy in his 50s.

Miss the food tho, that shit was
