I went out to lunch with my coworkers today. There were two ladies in a booth next to us.
About halfway into lunch, Lady 1 started telling Lady 2 that she’s just discovered that she and her husband were unable to have children. My coworkers and I were shocked! It was such an emotional and personal conversation and we couldn’t believe it was being discussed where strangers could easily overhear. However, what was more shocking is how Lady 2 responded.
Lady 2 said – “That’s karma for you.”
Lady 1 was shocked. I was shocked. My coworkers were shocked.
Lady 2 went on to bring up an abortion that Lady 1 had had at some point, and said that if she was willing to kill a child in the past, she shouldn’t have children in the future. She also said that even though they were friends, she’d always judged Lady 1 for killing her unborn baby.
My coworkers and I asked for our check, boxed up our lunch, and left. We couldn’t believe what we’d overheard. We felt like we were on WWYD?
