    Wow I can't believe people are so rude! I used to get funny looks when I was about 16/17 taking my neighbors kids to the park - I realize now they must have thought they were mine! Oops!

    I had a landlord say that unwed mothers should be ashamed of themselves in the office, while pregnant with ds2. One of the sales agents stuck up for me thankfully as I was pretty gobsmacked.

    He did come back in a week later to apologise so maybe he reassessed his original opinion.

    I have a very visible baby bump (same measurements as at 36 weeks last time )
    and as a family day carer often take my kids walking to the park/store etc. Thursdays I have a 3.8 year old, 2 2 year olds and a 14 mth old. I have no idea how ppl think they are all mine with those age gaps, but have had people stare, comment that we need to buy a tv etc. the worst was a car slowing down so the p plate guy could yell out "keep you legs closed sl*t"
    i hate judgemental people. I should wear a shift that says I'm a daycarer.

    I can not believe the comments that come out of my in-laws mouths. We live in Cairns (they live in Brisbane), and Cairns has a large Indigenous population. Every time they visit, all I hear is "Look at her!!! See, they CAN dress nicely!", or "Look, why's he walking down the street with a gas bottle? Probably stole it!" (this on Xmas Eve - and even FIL piped up to MIL and said "prob to the corner shop to get it exchanged?"

    Arghhhh....

    Where do I finish with examples of these two and their judgements???? Mind u, I do understand their generation and background, but I honestly cringe at their comments on every person they have opinions on - gay, straight, young, old, Indigenous, Japanese. You cannot go out ANYWHERE without their two cents worth. I really am surprised they've never been confronted or punched in the face!!!!!!!

    My BIL pushes the pram with DS in it sometimes & he gets the same looks. He's 18 but people still look at him like "wtf?"

    I'm pretty short (about 5foot) and I always get filthy looks from older ladies (50ish or so) especially when I was pushing a pram with two babies in it. I just felt like screaming "I'm 22, married and they're twins!"

    I get judgmental looks from older people (generally middle aged women) because of the way I dress and more recently because I look younger than 20 and have a child and still dress how I want (which is apparently immature, meh). It bugs me but I guess I judge them back as being unhappy old farts.

    When i was 18 DH (DF at the time) and I took my two younger cousins to the regatta; they were 3 & 1 at the time and both in pram/stroller (we were giving my aunty a couple of hours of peace and quiet); some of the looks we got and the comments we heard when walking past people were absolutely disgusting! Some people really need to learn to mind their own business!
