ATTENTION: Women menstruate.

This might seem like an obvious fact, but for this Coles check out boy, he had to learn the hard way…

Lauren Jovanovic dared to go out in public while she was menstruating (shock), to purchase some Libra pads.

The young male staff member at her local Coles thought it was appropriate to ask her, while scanning her sanitary items through the register, “have you tried Viva paper towels, I’ve heard they’re pretty absorbent?”

Lauren was naturally angry at this response and posted this to Coles Facebook page.
