I've heard from my MOM "well, maybe you just don't know yourself. you never liked cats before, but now you have one."

Very insulting.

This group is great! So glad to see that others are dealing with the same issues!

my boss noticed i looked like i wasn't feeling well today. i have chronic pain from some medical issues. i mentioned that i thought i had just overdone things lately. she said, "oh, are you pregnant?" <img src="/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif" alt="" /> i said, "no, i'm not able to have children. i just overdid things." then she said, "well, how many kids do you have?" and i thought, "good gravy, woman, don't you get it? i am infertile and can't have kids!" but she was talking about my tutoring session. *redface* lol. i'm glad i didn't spout off because i almost did before she clarified that she meant in the sessions.

today, my dh and i went to breakfast before i had to go to work this morning, and the waitress decided to ask us if we had kids. :? like it's her business? but we're regulars, so i guess she felt comfortable with us. jeff decided to take the blame off me (i'm the one with the reproductive issues) and said he had no little soldiers. now i'm paranoid i will end up pg, and she'll think i had an affair or something. lol.

anyway, they just keep asking. at least i'm used to it. <img src="/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif" alt="" />

I've always been baffled at how people just assume *everybody* has kids. I remember being mortified when a woman literally came running up to me as I got home from work to ask if I was "the girl scout mom." I was newly married at that point and it never occurred to me that I looked like ANYbody's MOM. Yikes. But at least I completely embarrassed her with my look of horror and utter confusion.

[color:"darkred"]I hate it when those certain people think that any illness you have and they (dumbly) think your pregnant. They are pretty ignorant. [/color]

Having kids for your old age is NOT a good reason. I know too many old people who's kids have nothing to do with them. It's possible to have a life with friends or pets. I don't think kids are that much comfort sometimes, to say nothing of the financial aspects of having kids.

My sister had her first son at 40 and now I think sometimes she wishes she hadn't (he's 5 now) He turned out to be a REAL handful and she's just starting in on the school years. Also, she and her husband should be saving for their retirement and now they'll have the expenses of raising a child for the next 16 years at least.

Arrrrrrrgh! I hate it too, when you're not feeling well and someone asks you if you're pregnant. How rude!

I swear to god, next time I hear it, I'm going to get all indignant. "Are you calling me fat? Are you trying to say I got a GUT? Whazza matta wit you? You feelin lucky, punk???"

If I can muster it, I will even vomit all over their shoes.

"Oh, sorry, the thought of having kids just makes me SO sick!"


Rudest. Question. EVER!
