Inspirational packaging brought to you by your feminine product line.

Did this really need to greet me in my time of need?  

"Keep Going.  Practice makes perfect."  

I'm guessing that it is a gentleman who came up with this super idea for Playtex Sport bulk packages from Sam's Club.  "Well, if they are buying them in an 80 count, perhaps we should cheer them on through the whole box of 80 with really stupid sayings.  Hmm.  What's the most insane one we can come up with?  Well since it is an 80 count, why not 'practice makes perfect?' Yes, that'll work!  The ladies'll love it!"

To their credit, the entire box is filled with a variety of sayings.  This one stopped me in my tracks.

Playtex Sports people,

You may have thought you were coming up with something sports related, but we'll just tell you that being told "practice makes perfect" on the outside of a tampon wrapper is just not cool.  Please, please allow us to go without the inspirational messages and work harder on quieter wrappers.  I mean, when you go to a public loo and it sounds like you are opening up a bag of chips, everyone knows what's going on in there.  If you want to be of service, help us out with that one please.

Always? Obviously a man there, too. "Have a happy period?" Um, if they've ever had one, then they know that it isn't very happy.
