Disgusted

With myself mostly I guess.

At the mall for lunch, wearing sweats and being lazy I suppose. I got on the elevator with Gracie in the stroller and an older woman asked how old she was and then prmptly looked at my tummy and asked "is someone else on the way?"

I had a salad.

Fucking hell.

    OMG, Michelle!!! What did you say to her? I don't care if someone looks 99.9% pregnant, I never ask that question. How rude! Like you needed to feel badly about your looks on top of everything else this week. I'm so sorry that life has not been kind to you lately.

    I hope you went kungfu on her right there in the elevator!

    WTF was that person thinking? I agree -- you never assume a stranger is pregnant even if they look like they are going to deliver tomorrow. Sorry that you had such a crappy thing happen to you.

    Don't feel bad about yourself. That woman was an asshat.

    you should have asked her, "how long have you been a blind bitch?"

    Oh my flocking hell. Why, why, WHY do people DO that????

    I'm really sorry. People should just keep their big flapping traps SHUT. If you have to ask, you shouldn't. Period.

    Ugh, I'm so sorry.

    Crap! I had one of those a couple of weeks ago... she even touched my stomach!!

    I'm sorry but that's not ok! Especially a complete stranger. At least I knew the woman.

    Jeez, that is so rude! It's like commenting on your kid's cute button nose and then asking when you have your rhinoplasty scheduled. She had no right to say anything to you.

    Um, not ok. You are beautiful. I don't know what she was seeing. Whatever. I am sorry you are feeling so crappy. I am so sorry.

    OMG that is SO rude! Unbelievable. I am disgusted too, with that bitch. People AAARRGGGHH &%^%$#@!@!@#$%&*!!!!!

    Wow, I can't believe someone asked that. Doesn't she know that it's never appropriate to ask if you're pregnant until you can actually see the baby crowning?

    Some people have no class.
