Buying off-brand condoms at the dollar store? Man, you believe in living dangerously.

It can reside for years in my wallet just as well as a name brand one for a quarter of the cost.

Hopefully they store the condoms with better environmental controls than the toothpaste.
 
2022-09-21 7:12:09 PM  
They also don't work when you don't not use them.

If neither the condoms nor the pregnancy tests work, the problem has solved itself for at least the short term.

What are cheap teen boys supposed to carry in their wallets to impress their other male friends? I was talking with a bunch of younger teens many years ago when one of the kids dropped his out of his wallet while trying to find money for stuff in a 7-11 style store. As he quickly tried to scoop it up his friends giggled and I asked if he'd ever used one before the expiration date or if he just got another one every couple years. Dang that was funny.

Only people that use them are those that lost a dare or have an accidental pregnancy fetish I'd imagine.

I'd rather trust an off-brand Zip-Loc over a dollar store jimmy cap.

What about the Tesla model? 0-60 is impressive but range is mediocre and has 360° camera angles

I spent a summer unpacking new Kohl's stores. One day part of the load was candles. Mid summer, Dallas. A truckload of melted, smelly candles.

I never trusted Trojan condoms. The name implies thousands of unwanted invaders will bust out when you least expect it.

I'll never forget the day I was checking out at the dollar store and saw pregnancy tests in the impulse buy rack in front of the register with all the gum and candy.

I thought, who the hell impulse buys a one dollar pregnancy test?

Then I looked around at my fellow dollar store shoppers and had my answer.

I recall discount condoms in fall
how you tore your dress, I confess, that's not all.

Danke schoen, darling, danke schoen
Thanks to my prophylactic bargain
Picture shows, second balcony
Blew out my rubber, you started to blubber
Danke Shoen

I'm thinking more they need a fentanyl testing kit.

Many years ago, I had just started working at a drugstore when someone found a box of open condoms tossed in one of the aisles. Someone had stolen a couple of the condoms and left the others behind. So we were going to have to send them back to the warehouse as damaged.

The supervisor at the time got the idea to blow one of these bad boys up using he helium tank just for shiats and giggles. Plus, the whole "I don't think it's big enough" spiel. Gentleman, unless your tallywacker rivals the size of an elephant's leg, you have nothing to worry about. This bad boy had to have been at least 4' long and probably a good 2' or so diameter but it exploded.

For the next year, when doing resets, we were finding pieces of broken condom all over the place lol

For that price they must have been used and repackaged.

I found larger sizes more comfortable and easier to apply. Regular sizes can feel as though ones's meatus is being overly constricted. Then harder to relax and enjoy the activities.

If you're buying a pregnancy test from a dollar store, we both know you can't afford for it to be positive

Low customer confidence and a barrier to entry.  Corporate must be concerned.  They may need to pull out of the market.

They generally work just as well as the brand name. And if you're doing ivf or trying to conceive you go through a farkton of the damn things.

Why don't you at least try asking the horse out on a date first?

TFA: "condoms...and adhesives."

At least with the dollar-store quality of these products, it won't matter much if I get them mixed up again.

also, don't buy wine at the dollar store.   It is there for the same reason.  Someone left a pallet of the stuff in a hot location and the stock needs to get liquidated.
