A theory on seniors’ nappies 41



View Profile

This is something that’s concerned me and kept me awake for many a long night, and you too, probably, so I thought I ought to share my theory with you.

Disposable nappies have names such as Luvs, Huggies and Pampers, while panty liners for elderly people are called Depends. I reckon I’ve finally twigged the reason for those names.

When babies mess their nappies, people still seem to Luv ’em, Hug ’em and Pamper ’em, but when an old person messes theirs, it Depends who’s in the will. 

I hope you’ll sleep as well as I will tonight now I’ve got that all worked out.

  1. I would be more concerned about our landfill with all these disposable nappies. If only someone would make them that disintegrate within hours of being used.

  2. Cloth nappies need nappisan, electricity, hot water, washing powder and machine wear and tear. Plus extra washing of clothes sheets etc
    Disposable do dissolve and only need few a day.
