Why does a man carry a sanitary wipe?

Why does a man carry a sanitary wipe intended for woman? Even when the man in question is someone who known over two decades, you will raise an eyebrow, if not both the eyebrows. I am getting ahead here. If you have no clue what a sanitary wipe, this is the point where you get off this bus. Pronto.

Where was I? The man, over 2 decades and the sanitary wipes. When the man in question has been living abroad for over a decade, then a whole set of notions form in your head! This was exactly my state. My friend unpacks his suitcase and out comes the offending sanitary wipes causing my head to spin.

Most of us has a way of thinking too much of nothing. If you say no, then let me confess. I possess this trait. There was a simple reason. I wouldn't have guessed it for he has been living in a foreign land for a long time now. He doesn't like toilet paper. He uses sanitary wipes instead.

This is also an instance where a product intended for a target audience is actually used by an entirely different audience.

  6. I was surprised to note that when one of my disciples told me that men do carry such stuff in her office and been doing that for many years. Its easier to carry those than the dry tissues it seems. Gawd! Sometimes I wish they have health faucets in every country and free water! But I guess its easier to carry baby wipes and no questions asked! LOL!
