SAHMs: What's the most annoying thing you get asked?
So, today, went to the Social Security office to update my SS card since getting married. Yeah, I sort of procrastinated that a bit. Well, as I'm lugging my 7month old, 21 pound, 32 inches long kid in his car seat at 8 Freaking AM in the midst of this metaphorical pig sty of people, the security asshole (yes, yes he was) has the testicular fortitude to make the comment "Wow, you look exhausted!!" Really, dickhead? I'm thinking, "Yeah, but my exhausted ass works out 6 days a week, while juggling a baby, a dog, renovating our home, the daily chores, online college coursework whereas you sit on your ass all day behind a desk and I spy a Krispy Kreme box behind you!" The things I really wish I could say sometimes....so as I was sitting there in the waiting room, baby's asleep, I start pondering all the crap people ask me.
What do you DO all day?
I bet you're up to date on all the TV shows!
Why do you look so tired?
How do you stay in shape? You never go anywhere?
Are you gonna get done with school?
When are you gonna have more?
Does your DH want you to go back to work?
Why does your husband work and you don't?
Why not put that kid in a daycare, quit school and get a job?
Seriously, I have heard the most absurd shit lately and it bugs the absolute shat out of me. For starters, when I get done with school, I'll be making more than my husband and we plan on reversing roles. I'm the one remodelling the house while my DH works. We figured in the cost of daycare, and it's ridiculous. I look exhausted because my kid has two teeth popped in just the other day and he's not happy about it.....at random times say 3am! It's so funny how people think they can get comfortable to ask this kind of stuff. I forgot to wear my wedding ring to the SS office and this lady sneezing and coughing all over herself asks me "Where's the child's father?" Not realizing, I said, "At work." She replies with "good thing too, all baby daddies should be financially responsible for their babies!" *throws papers in the air*
