Redditor miss_beat has gone viral with a post about her experience with a package of DIY waxing strips she purchased at a supermarket. It seemed like a decent plan: she had no time to go to a salon for a bikini waxing, so she figured she'd just buy one of those over-the-counter kits and do it herself at home. What could possibly go wrong?

Miss_beat's plan was to remove all her pubic as a nice gesture for her boyfriend. Her first attempt wasn't too terrible, but it was taking a lot longer than she expected, so she stopped midway through.


Realising I was going to be late for work, I pulled up my pants, and left my hair half removed, 40 Year Old Virgin style.

She resumed the de-pubing after work:

With plans to see my boyfriend in the evening, after work I attempted Round 2. Things were going even worse now, as I got further down. Hair wasn't coming out as easy, wax was sticking me together, I was losing strength to pull quickly. Again, I was running out of time, but I looked ridiculous. I had to keep going.

She was really over the whole waxing thing, but she didn't want to leave the job half done like a garden attacked by a lawnmower (a lawnmower made of wax). So she came up with another plan: hair removal cream.
