i have gotten the don't you have a tv line heaps since falling pregnant with my 3rd i answer
"yep but we only watch porn"
seems to shut them up fairly quick:-)
Sent from my GT540 using Bubhub
The three that I can remember:
1. When I was about 8 month pregnant I was in Canberra for a martial arts seminar...I had spent a solid week training (I trained twice a week and did preggy exercise twice a week) and the week had finished...we wnt to a cafe to get something to eat and I was STARVING so I ordered French toast. Out comes this plae with massive slices on it, bacon and maple syrup WOW! a man at the next table said 'Do you think that's entirely appropriate?'
2. Meeting a friends new g/f when I was also 8 months preg. She asked 'Will you be having a caesarian?' I said "I am not planning it...but who knows". Her response was: 'I will have Caesarians...You know Garden path versus 4 lane highway' ...she was a doctor and I was TOTALLY gobsmacked
3. DD was about 4 weeks old and I was suffering PND and home alone etc. I got her dressed to go to the shops and she was layered up in clothes and had a blanket over her in my arms. This old man approaches her and starts to chat to her and tell her how sorry he felt for her with a mum who lets her freeze. she looked like a bowling ball with all the layers!
At 35 weeks a guy at work yelled at me in front of my work colleagues "you don't need lunch!!! Look at you!!!"
Lol, my answer for the 'don't you have a tv?' remark is:
"Since when is TV a more enjoyable way to spend your time than sex?"
Wow, just reading through these and I'm shaking my head in disbelief!
How can people be so cruel, nosy, ignorant etc.
The only comments I get (which can't compare to the rest are), 'why are you still co-sleeping? You are making a rod for your own back! He will always cling to you' etc etc.
Hugs to everyone who has been on the receiving end of any horrible comments about your child/ten!
In the 18 years I had all sorts of rude comments. Some that really stand out are.....
"shut up you you stupid woman it is just a bit of skin and bones" from the sonographer who had just confirmed my baby had died and I was going to miscarry.
"those kids can't be yours, I mean who the hell would F*** you. Your soo dam fat"
I was told I was a bad mum because I don't go to work so I can buy my kids everything they wanted.
That I was a b**** because I didn't invite the whole class to kids birthday party (talking about the kids that were bullying my DS, after all they need to feel included)
That I was teaching my dd to be a lesbian because I encourage her to explore feminism. (My DH was a pastor at the time )
There are so many more.....

Firstly, I hope that sonographer is no longer in the business!! What a piece of SH!T to say that to someone who is losing their child..!!!!!!!! I am shocked.
Secondly, this makes my blood boil... I am on the bigger side... so does that mean im not entitled to be loved? and to have a family?....
& Thirdly - LOL HAHAHAHA.... I just have to laugh at that.... Why would you invite your childs bullys to his party...?!?!
Far out... Some of these things... People can be so nasty.
It really affirms in my mind why I continue to try be as accepting and open and nice as i possibly can.
I NEVER want to be one of those nasty people that judges others because I know how much it can hurt.
