"Take a Midol" is a disparaging phrase said to a woman who is behaving in a bitchy
and confrontational fashion, as women are know to do when experiencing the symptoms of PMS
. Sometimes said by a male, the phrase is more powerful when uttered by a female toward another female
, as a strong complaint about the woman's behavior and/or attitude. (Midol is a commonly used over-the-counter medication marketed to women for the symptoms of PMS.)
Woman to woman: What is wrong with you? Stop being so upset and take a Midol!
Man to woman: Honey, please! Take a Midol before we have another domestic violence event in this house trailer
