9-year-old boy buys tampons at supermarket – cashier can’t believe her ears when he explains why

Kids see the world in a different way than us grown-ups. The adult world is a mysterious place that’s easy to misinterpret and misunderstand when you’re still young. This can be a source of frustrations, but it’s also incredibly cute and endearing. I think we could all use a different perspective every now and then.

In the story below, two young boys go to the store to buy tampons, but the confused cashier can’t believe her ears when she hears what they have to say!

Two little boys go to the grocery store. One is 9 years old and the other one is 5 years old. The 9-year-old grabs a box of tampons from the shelf and carries it to the register for checkout.


At the checkout

The lady cashier smiles down at the boys and asks, “Oh, these must be for your mom, huh?”

The 9-year-old and his little brother both shake their heads. The older boy replies, “Nope, not for my mom.”

Taken aback, the cashier responds, “Well, they must be for your sister then?”

The 9-year-old replies, “Nope, not for my sister either.”

The cashier has now become curious. “Oh. Not for your mom and not for your sister? Who are they for?”

The 9-year-old says, “They’re for my little brother. He’s 5 years old.”

The cashier is surprised. “Your 5 year old little brother? Are you sure he need tampons?”

The 9-year-old explains:

“Well yeah, they said on TV if you wear one of these, you can swim or ride a bike, and my little brother can’t do either of them!”
