  • Oh I'm sure I have been. I'm the outcast of the family in a sense. I dropped out of college, got tattoos, was engaged to my husband 4 months after we started dating, got married and had 3 kids right away, live on the bad side of town, and homeschool. I just don't care what other's think about me. I know I'm a good person and I raise my kids the best way I know how!

  • I am in my late 30s and at my sons school am one of the oldest moms of a 1st grader. Most of the moms are in their early 20s we have one 21 year old even. They gather together and will not speak to me. They make rude remarks about my age and what not. We are moving to a more affluent area of town and my son will be in a better school. I will be the average age for moms there and will not have to deal with the high school antics at my sons current school. The kids are not allowed to play with him because they think we are rich and stuck up. I drive a Ford Focus and shop at Target but

  • Uh, yeah.... my BFF pinched the crap out of me in Bible class ( of all places! ) one time, because the lady sitting next to me thumbed her nose at me because she asked where I got my nail color from.... when I said Walgreens she scowled and said "ohhhh" I bout tore her a new one right there.

    Here' s my philosophy... If 1 person has a problem with me then I look at them and ask "what's wrong with you".. If 5 people have the same problem with me THEN it's time to look at myself as ask "what's wrong with me" ..... until then, to hell with what other people think..... Hell we were at the tattoo shop with my son when he got his tat and another woman in there walked up and asked "you don't mind that he's doing THAT".... I said "Lady, it's his 18th birthday and I'm buying the tattoo for him.... when he's done I'M Getting one!".... she just walked away.

  • Yep I think all woman do, and its usually by other women. I at times find myself judging those who can't be bothered getting dressed in the morning and leaving the house in there pjs, really what example is that teaching your kids? But I get judge too because I do my hair and make before I leave the house unless im going to the gym. I get looks from women at the commisary all the time and over here comments "who does she think she is?" "where does she think she's going" I just block them out most the time, if i had a bad day and I over here I will say something to them, usually something like just because you're to fat and lazy to get dressed don't judge me because i look presentable.....

  • I don't care what people think, and am sure people talk about me they say I look young, yeah sure I do. I feel age creeping up on me.

  • I am sure I have, but its not because I look bad. Its likely because its quite affluent around here. I drive a nice car and wear nice clothes and so do my kids. I am sure people will think that I think I am better than everyone else and I don't think that at all. I just like nice things.
