My next door neighbour was a house painter by trade and he told me this story of his most embarrassing moment. He had been suffering from some very painful and bleeding hemorrhoids and one morning before going to work he placed, in the offending area, one of his wife’s sanitary napkins. During the morning while on a step ladder painting an internal wall, the woman for whom he was working came into the room with some morning tea. As he was climbing down the ladder he felt something in his trouser leg and forgetting momentarily about the napkin he shook his leg energetically and out popped the napkin liberally spotted with red. As it was a reddish colour paint he was using he jumped down picked up the napkin and said “I wondered where my paint rag had gone.” and quickly placed it inside the bib of his overalls.
