Pregnant With Stress

| WI, USA | Friendly | May 15, 2015

(I’m five-months pregnant, and showing it. As such, people have a tendency to think it’s okay to say whatever they want.)

Woman: “Oh my goodness! When are you due?”

Me: *weirded out that a stranger is talking to me* “I’m due in March.”

Woman: “Oh, wow, you’re so big for being due so far away! Are you having twins?”

Me: “Excuse me? No. My size is normal for my expected date, thank you.”

Woman: *completely oblivious to the fact that I’m offended* “Well, enjoy your sleep now! You won’t get any soon!”

Me: *extremely aggravated* “Enjoy my sleep? You think getting up to pee four times a night while having pain from not being able to sleep on my back is enjoyable? Or did you think it’d be fun to scare me? Listen, lady, I don’t know why you’re behaving like an idiot, but maybe think for a few minutes before opening your mouth to a stranger!”

Woman: *shocked*

Other Patrons: *silent*

Me: *to everyone* “STOP LOOKING AT THE PREGNANT LADY LIKE SHE’S CRAZY!”

(I actually got a discount that day because the cashier thought ‘maybe the day was rough enough for me already.’)
