Just read back through the posts and we got the 'boy thing' as well, '\"oh, you're having a boy? Your partner must be so pleased!" As though I wasn't pleased, or as if he'd be less pleased if it was a little girl. I was actually grateful he was a boy~ I was and still am a 'tom-boy' (now that phrase REALLY annoys me) and I just am not sure I could shop for girls clothes~ aaaarghhh, the pink aisle!
One of the strangest and most befuddling things happened to me when I was a teenage punk with a mohawk. I was pulled into a train station office for smelling like a 'graffiti boy (as they called me)', the smell was all the hairspray in my mohawk. It finally dawned on me that they thought I was a boy when they realised I wasn't doing graffiti, and asked about my hair....'do you do it to impress the girls?' they asked. Errr, no!
I didn't correct them, I just sidled away. Must have made some impression on me~20 years on, I still have a mohawk!

I can't believe I forgot this one...had friends over for dinner and twice in one night one of them told me which child of mine was her fave...in front of the child who wasn't. I could've decked her.

'it gets easier'
I also hate people telling me what my DH is or isn't doing. He is doing the best he can. Jeez!

Having just had a miscarriage.. MIL knows we want another child... Sitting at the table sorting through a heap of fabric she had given me.. She mentions there are lots of boy colours there (we have a DD) .. I say oh yeh that's nice.. She replies
"well we can only hope"
Um... Can't we just hope for a healthy happy pregnancy and not voice opinions on freaking sex of a baby that hasn't even been conceived yet???!!!!
Made me SO mad!

Annoying things people say
Whenever I say anything someone says "really?"
I want to stick a straw up their nose. Yes really.
