Can this chapter go any slower?
They are making this into too big of a deal.

When I was in middle school my friends and I bought condoms and we didn’t make such a big deal out of it. Did we get weird looks? Maybe, I honestly wasn’t paying attention.

But seriously, do kids really act like this when buying condoms? If so, you look more ridiculous acting this way than if you just walked over and got it.
(Though we did giggle a lot AFTER paying for them while walking out the store.)

Bunny-bunny September 3, 2013, 1:24 PM EST.

Heh. I’m curious, does Daisy know what condom size she’s supposed to buy ? ^^

Comment ID #258322

Most of the time people do act like this, atleast in my experiences I’ve always seen younger couples freaking out, blushing, and then giggling on their way out. I’m use to it from years in customer service. Lately though these kids now are ballzy and don’t care, so it’s not as funny now. ;)

Comment ID #258326

shouldn’t be worried about what people think buying thos. at least there being safe about it. Ive always given people a hard time back when i was young and stupid. went on for 30 mins talking to another customer who wanted to embresse me by bring all the attention on me. ((I said : You think i should be dumb like you and get preggers and have nasty children like you did at such a young age??))((dude was young and had a young babygirl and his 18 yr old mum wife.))

He shut up after words.

Sanchan September 3, 2013, 1:54 PM EST.

Comment ID #258327

Honestly, if they can’t act mature about it by walking in together and buying them as a normal couple, they shouldn’t be doing anything.

They worry about getting caught because they know they are too young and shouldn’t be there in the first place. :/

It’s entertainment, what do you expect?

If you think it’s that stupid, why don’t you go entertain yourself with a news blog. There’s stuff going on in Syria if you want to go feel miserable about the world.

I_Love_Lucy September 3, 2013, 2:49 PM EST.

Comment ID #258335

@CoolBad why wouldn’t they, there is no age restriction on buying condoms, ok they aren’t exactly putting the best front on for buying them but a cashier would probably be in more trouble for not selling them to people who wan them than refusing because they seem immature.

Comment ID #258341

Are ALL of those CONDOM brands!?
Holy fish sticks if it is, because that’s a ton of condoms.
Yeah also, if Daisy has never seen, you know, “Abbey Jr.” how will she know which one fits? Hmm, maybe they have a room at that back where they can try a few on.
Anyways, if none of those are condom brands then lol, miscellaneous boxes be intimidating all up in Daisy’s grill. Better just go ask the clerk, “Can I have some condoms, for a, you know, science project?”
Remember to put on your best smile too when you ask.

When I buy condoms I do it with my chin up because I’m using them to get laid and they know it. Ain’t no shame in that. But these two are like virgin churchmice. I wonder how they’ll react when they have to meet someone to -buy- them anyways.

Naw condoms are actually pretty expensive
I sort of figured that people didn’t buy them because they were lazy, but… well, maybe they have a reason :p

I think we are moving on from Lucy way too easily here. So soon right after that happened, we are already getting back into the usual shenannigans? I think this is moving on way too quickly, at least some mourning is needed, and things with Mike need to be evened out. Taeshi, please give us something for that.

I remember my first time buying condoms. Awkward stuff. I believe in you, Daisy. Being cautious is better than not having any when you eventually do need them.

Alex September 3, 2013, 8:20 PM EST.

Comment ID #258366

@CoolBad: You should maybe learn a thing or two about things like this before venturing into the world of the internet. There is no age restriction. A 10 yr old could buy Condoms.

Also Daisy, been there. I’ll give you some advice though. Just walk through the aisle like you’re just passing through, just select a box and grab it, then head to the Self Checkouts (if the store has some) so you don’t have to go through a Cashier. Boom.

Follarch September 3, 2013, 8:23 PM EST.

I hope….. I hope they run into Augustus. That would be interesting, and I think deter them from going through with this.

Honestly, I like the switch away from Lucy’s problems. Personally, it draws out the suspense, and gives us readers a chance to not worry so much about one character, so that we can enjoy the good and awkward times of some of the others for a while.

Hi. Ummm……….. I might sound dumb but what happend to Lucy? Did she like take the job offer, move, run away, or just stoped being in the comic, or did she die and never say how or for that matter even say she died? WHAT HAPPENED TO HER???????????!!!!!!!!!!!! Mad Lucy TELL ME NOW!!!!!!!!!!!

Comment ID #258374

Am I the only one noticing the awkward picture on the box from panel 5? The lady on it has short hair like Taeshi’s, and I can’t help but compare it to the picture next to her comment. They’re both so similar. D:

@BTTFWithBCB: Calm down! Lucy couldn’t possibly be dead, and she’ll be back eventually. I mean, I literally started reading this the very same day she wasn’t attending the school anymore, and I’m not exploding. Read or Re-read “Breaking Up” for clues.

Be calm
Mad Lucy

@GingerPaws: Hey! We don’t know if she attempted suicide or not. It could of been a stress-related illness. Bottomline: WE DON’T KNOW ANYTHING YET!

Hawz September 3, 2013, 11:10 PM EST.

Comment ID #258375

Oh yeah, If that’s the sex education teacher from middle school, I reserve “Called it” rights. I also half-expect something else to happen and then Taeshi says “I’m not that predictable.” 8-D

Comment ID #258378

One more thing, the people on that purple box from panel 5 aren’t cartoon cats, dogs, or rabbits. THEY’RE HUMAN. So it would be extremely awkward if anyone were to buy them. :unsure:

Comment ID #258379

@Krix Liz,

What’s wrong with the “studded” (I think you’re talking about ribbed) ones? I’m honestly curious about this one, I’ve heard some complain about those. Not to knock the subject into a perceived perverted direction, i’m just curious if females actually have an issues with those.

buchanen_neket September 4, 2013, 2:29 AM EST.

Comment ID #258380

I remember buying my first box, to be honest I was probably the calmest person. I dont know why :question: I just went in bought it and got out like it was nothing….though once I got home I let out a huge sigh of relief and stayed in my room for the rest of that day…hiding. XD

…What happens if Augustus walks in…?

Just-A-Lurker September 4, 2013, 2:43 AM EST.

Comment ID #258382

Why can I see this happening.

Daisy looking at the different sizes looking confused/lost.
Rachael appears, sees that she has no idea, spots Abbey.
Rachael walks over to Abbey, hand shoots out and grabs…, her looking thoughtful, him looking confused/embarrassed/wtf.
Rachael walks back over to Daisy, picks up a box and hands it to her.
