When a lady at church asked me if I was having twins, to be a snarky witch I replied with "no, just one. What's your excuse? Are you having triplets?" I was in a very bad mood that day & tired of people telling me how "huge" I am.

when they ask what dude was having,  said, pretty sure, it's a human.

 I've never had anybody be rude to me just because I was expecting. I wouldn't think that would be a common occurrence.

dude thinks its rude to ask what the gender is and when you say you don't know they treat you like you are insane... how can you buy or know what to ask for? smh, or  when people say "anytime now, huh?" no asshole, 8 more weeks to go... thanks...

that is probably the worse thing a person could say to someone after a person dies. 

Quoting mattiehatter:

I used to like to pretend I WASN'T pregnant. People feel really awkward when they come up and touch your belly and start asking questions, and you're like, "Ummm... I'm not pregnant. What are you saying? Do I LOOK pregnant?" But you have to say it like you mean it. Put a little bit of bitch offended chick in your tone. 

I also used to have people asking "What are you having?" I'd always answer, "Hmmm, a squirrel, I think."

If it was someone I knew and they lost their ability to properly gauge a situation and lost their social filter or etiquette, I'd just respond as sarcastically as possible, but with a completely serious demeanor just to throw them off. "Please tell me you're done after this?" "Actually, we're planning on getting pregnant again right away so the clothes we buy this baby will still be in style. We're joining the quiverful movement. Wanna hear about the positions we're going to try to achieve a faster conception?" Stuff like that. 

On CM I'm all mild manners and making sense. In real life I'm a sarcastic asshole.

I am NOT Karl. But I might still eat your hands.

Was told multiple times to keep an aspirin between my knees (so my legs wouldn't open)... and I told them my husband wouldn't be happy.

Don't I have tv?... Well this is more fun.

Don't I have other things to do?... Do you see anything else to do around here?

Four is a lot and I have to be done... We will adopt five more!
