Honesty might be the best policy, but one should be wary about being overly open and honest with strangers who don't really need to know your business, as the boy in the following story finds out just a little too late.
A young man goes into a drugstore to buy condoms for the first time. He's nervous and not really sure what he needs.

The kindly pharmacist spots him and tries to help. He tells him the condoms come in packs of 3, 9 or 12 and asks which the young man wants.
"Well," the young man says, "I've been seeing this girl for a while now and she's really hot. I want condoms because I think tonight's "the" night. We're having dinner with her parents, and then we're going out. And I've got a feeling I'm going to get lucky after that. Once she's had me, I think she'll want me all the time, so you'd better give me the 12 pack, just in case."
The pharmacist raises a knowing eyebrow but says nothing. The young man makes his purchase and leaves.
Later that evening, the young man arrives at his girlfriend's house. The table is being set and she tells him where to sit.

Her parents come in with the food and the young man asks if he might give the blessing. He begins the prayer but continues praying for several minutes.
The girl leans over and says, "You never told me that you were such a religious person."
He leans over to her and whispers,
"You never told me that your father is a pharmacist."
Awkward! What would be the best thing to do to get out of this situation? Share this with your friends and see what they would do if they were the pharmacist in the story.
An anonymous man was recently blasted on Reddit after he took to the site complaining that his girlfriend should be the one to fork out money for condoms as they were costing him a fortune.
Most of the commenters were disgusted at his pathetic attitude and urged him to "man up" and take responsibility for himself or get ready to co-parent and pay child support instead.
With women having to pay for expensive feminine hygiene products every month and not to mention that while on birth control, women experience actual hormone and body changes, buying condoms was cheaper and less invasive.
Reddit users roasted the man for his insensitivity and expectations and wondered if perhaps he wasn't ready for a mature relationship in the first place.
