    Default Rudest Thing a Stranger has said to you

    My DD had really bad reflux as a newborn and I had great difficulty breast feeding ( already feeling like a failure ) my DD threw up breast milk as soon as she finished eating, got to the point where my husband would sit there with a towel and wait for it! So we moved onto formula as well as expressed breast milk, my MHCN told me to try giving DD the milk cold as it would soothe her tummy and eliminate bacteria, so we did and she stopped vomiting and was finally getting the breast milk down, I thought YAY we are getting somewhere only to have my mother say to me in front of a full house of visitors( my friends) " good mothers, teach their babies how to breast feed, a good mother would never give their baby a bottle and never ever cold! Good mothers know how to look after a baby" word for word I will never ever forget it!!! My own mother suffice to say she doesn't spend too much time with us!!

    "Aren't you scared that she'll grow up thinking tattoos are normal, and become filthy scum like you when she grows up?"

    All asked in a very neutral and loud voice, in the middle of a change room.
    She walked off without waiting for an answer. Which may or may not have been in the form of a middle finger.

    Oh. My. God! I'm so sorry your own mother said that. I hope you didn't let her get to you.

It was pretty intense, they were so serious.

    No idea how to correctly respond aside from stare in shock say "oh really" and then briskly walk off so she couldn't touch my baby!!!!!

    I had a lady in Kmart say to her mother (I'm assuming it was her mum or children's nana) "did you see how much that baby's head was bouncing around!" really loudly & in a mean voice. When the nana turned around to look I was staring directly at her and she didn't know where to look.

    I walked away almost in tears that someone would think that by using a ergo I was hurting my baby!

    That is so rude. As a shop assistant i could never dream about saying something so rude to someone. I always cringe when people buy crystal clear test though, and want to tell them to grab a first response, but i still bite my tongue, because its not our place to comment.


    Also its amazing how rude the older generation are, if they hear a child having a tantrum over at another register some of the stuff they come out with!! I always wish i was on the other side of the counter so i could say something.

    LOL - sorry this post made PMSL. I think I would have just cracked up laughing that something as simple as me having tattoos got up someones nose like that.

    I'm quite underweight due to medical issues but I treated myself to a chocolate bar and the woman in the queue behind me said "I don't think one is going to help, get some more and stop being skinny". Thanks lady.

    I've got three things... two are reoccurring grrr.

    Firstly the looks I get bottle feeding! If I could bf I would you judgemental so and so's.

    Secondly whenever DH and I go shopping, we are always ignored by the salespeople! I know its a bit unusual to be ticked off by it, but I mean ALWAYS. We dress nice, are always clean and Bubba is well behaved while out. Its like they think we have no money to spend or something! I know its not exactly rude but it makes us feel like we're second class citizens because we have a baby.

    Third one was when DD was maybe a month old. We were the shops and she was sleeping in her pram, which was a RARE and special event for us at the time. A little old lady stopped us to comment on the baby, fine we were doting new parents and loved the compliments. But then she freaked out and started to reach into the pram screaming 'She'll suffocate! I can't believe you have a blanket over her mouth!'
    My DH had a mini meltdown! She had a muslin wrapped in her little hand and it was partially resting on her face... I think if she'd woken the baby my sleep deprived hubby would've exploded!
