it was more i just couldn't get rid of the pooch. i think if any stranger pointed out something that wasn't true about you it would be upsetting. and some people really just mean it to be nice. i have never mentioned anything to the person. i did ask quietly to someone at church who would know. turns out she just  had a giant stomach tumor that was making her look 8 months pregnant. I always to try secretly confirm before saying anything to the actual person. or casually mention my kids, and see if they mention about how they can't wait for theirs to get here, etc. i don't say anything to strangers though. i do, however, gush over the cuteness of peoples babies! guilty as charged on that one.

Um, she asked how "I" would react....reading comprehension must not be your strong suit.

Oh my God that is awful!!


Quoting colins_mom:

I have so had that happen. My response: not pregnant, just fat. Thanks for pointing it out though!







When I WAS pregnant and a waitress I had a lady tell me that I wasn't pregnant just fat and that I was faking for better tips. When I asked her what made her think that she said and I quote "you're so ugly no one would willingly have sex with you" I had to go to the kitchen and cry....,the owner made her leave.

This is something my mother taught me when I was very little. Never ask someone if they are pregnant/about their pregnancy until they tell you they are pregnant. EVEN IF they look super duper pregnant!

Also its none of that strangers business if you are pregnant.....

I would say, damn i just had my baby and i havnt lost the weight yet. You must think im a fat fuck. haha im sarcastic, and it cracks me up. I have had a lady actually ask me that, I said im not pregnant but my sister is, i guess im having sympathetic weigh gain? lol she laughed and said sorry, no problem lady its all good.
