That Time a Tampon Saved a Soldier’s Life
Not exactly a horror story, but still pretty incredible.
A care package meant for a female Marine was accidentally given to a male Marine. Initially the guy’s fellow Marines gave him a hard time about it, especially the tampons. They were soon very fond of the mistake when one of the tampons from the care package was used to save another Marine’s life. The soldier was shot when the convoy was ambushed. The fellow Marines plugged the injured soldier’s wound with the tampon to stop the bleeding. A doctor later confided that had they not used the tampon the soldier would have most likely bled to death.
Personal Foul? Tampon Fell Out During Basketball Game
During a girl’s annual intramural basketball game, in which she was only one of two girls on her team, one unlucky lady noticed that her tampon fell out. Not realizing what it was, one of her teammates yelled out, “dead mouse.” Thinking fast, the girl fell on it, scooped it up, and ran to the bathroom. The team was disqualified, but it was a lot better than having to admit to six boys that her tampon fell out onto the gym floor during the game.
