Shortage of tampons solved after a woman gets rid of her bag
HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA—After weeks of low inventory and empty shelves at many pharmacies nationwide, drug maker Tampax announced Thursday that the shortage of tampons has been resolved after a local woman shook her bag and rummaged through all the items that had accumulated inside. “Fortunately, we were able to source enough tampons from a woman’s purse to alleviate demand for the foreseeable future,” a Procter & Gamble spokesperson said, confirming industry supply. the chain issues were resolved when 25-year-old California native Claire McMahon fished out some super Tampaxes from the bottom of her shoulder bag at a party, and finally decided to flip it all over on a table to see what exactly what she had in there. “To solve this crisis, all it took was a simple shake of a large leather Madewell bag, the contents of which we then passed on to distributors and retailers. Among the bulk lipsticks, wallets, and gum, there were hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of tampons of all sizes, flavors, and brands. Ms McMahon generously offered them to anyone who needed them, saying she got most of them for free anyway from her office bathrooms and gym. As of press time, McMahon told the nation to help themselves, but maybe don’t use the one a granola bar melted on.
