"Wow, so many kids" EDIT

This is what a lady said at best buy last night, I am a young mother of 4. We were walking around looking at the tvs and what not, and this is what a lady had to say. My kids were not acting up or anything, they were walking right behind dh and I. I thought it was uncalled for and kinda rude, I think the lady thought we would not understand what she said (we are mexican). DH thought it was rude and said really loudly " Is not like anyone is helping feed them and dress them, people should really mind their own business" The lady kept trying to hide after that.

BTW, we are in no kind of assistance we are doing it on our own. My husband makes decent money.

 

edit

We thought it was rude because of her expression of disgust, also I stated I was Mexican because she thought we wouldn't understand. I wouldn't mind someone coming up to me and saying that I have a lot of children, it has happened before. It was the way she said it and expected us not to understand.

Ignore them. There is always going to be an asshole somewhere.

Mexicans do typically have a lot of kids.

I don't see why it was a rude comment.

Sometimes when I see hoardes of kids I can't help but to say "damn that's a lot of kids" or "look at all the kids" if I'm with someone. Its not meant to be rude. Its just the truth. But 4 isn't a lot to me since I'm #2 of 4. I'd only say that if there were 5 or more.

I don't see why people get so upset they respond to assholes.

I have 5. It's not the norm so people react, it's not necessarily rude, people react to things they are not used to.
It doesn't require any more response than a smile.

I don't see it as a rude comment, just an observation. Why are the two of you so defensive about it?

I'm always jealous of those that have a bunch of kids. I think you're very lucky and you should ignore comments like that. Besides, she might not have meant it in a rude way.
