So I'm at work today. I'm a pharmacist. I was asked to go talk to a young girl - 20ish - at the counter. Here is our conversation...

Me: Hi, what can I help you with?
Her: I was just wondering if I can use this while I'm on my period?
Me: (Sees a pregnancy test in her bag) (pause) Um... what?
Her: Can I use this while I'm on my period?
Me: Well, you shouldn't need to use a pregnancy test while you're on your period. This will detect the hormone your body makes when you're pregnant, and well, if you're getting your period...
Her: But can I use it?
Me: Are you just spotting and you want to make sure?
Her: No.
Me: I don't see why not.

And then she stomps away all mad.

But seriously. If you HAVE your period, WHY would you need to take a pregnancy test.

Maybe I just don't get it. I told my co-workers about this too, and every last one of them got the most confused look on their face.

So it wasn't just me. :)
