Dad cracks up the internet when picking up sanitary pads for daughter

A girl gave the internet a giggle after asking her dad to buy sanitary pads for her – only for him to get a little confused by the colours of the packaging.

Twitter user Niamh posted a screenshot of a conversaton between her and her dad, Andrew, asking him to get her some ‘pads with wings’ before the shops close.

After getting to the correct aisle, he looked at two sets of sanitary towels – one packet green, one packet purple, and asked: ‘Blackcurrant or lime?’.

The tweet has received thousands of likes and retweets and plenty of comments from people who found the remark funny.

However some people got a little funny about Niamh asking her dad to buy her pads – simply because he’s a man.

They stated that the whole thing was rather ‘strange’.

However, Niamh quickly came to her and her dad’s defense, saying: ‘For all the people getting wound up about asking my own dad for pads. 1. He’s only ever lived with females, my sister, my mum, his sister, his mum.

‘2. I was in work until 5 shops close at 4 on a SUNDAY i don’t drive, neither does my mum.’

‘3. it’s 2019 not 1969.’

Plenty of people supported Niamh’s dad, though.

One said: ‘Love your dad’s reply! There is absolutely nothing weird about asking any male to buy you sanitary products, it is a normal thing!

‘My best friend was brought up by a single dad and had to ask him for pads growing up! Really fail to see the problem.’

Another said: ‘Mad how you actually have to prove to people bc they’re triggered over someone else’s dad buying an essential.

‘I don’t see my mum so my dad buys me mine when I need them. Dads like this rock.’

And one man added: ”Blackcurrant or lime. I dont get what the issue with this is? I get them for my misses if she needs them and I have 3 daughters so looks like I’ll be buying them for the rest of my life.’

However, one person was more interested in which pads Niamh ended up going for – the blackcurrant or the lime.

She did actually answer this question with ‘Blackcurrant!’ – and to be honest, we think naming them by fruits instead of brands is a lot more fun – especially when asking someone who doesn’t have periods to buy them.
