Unwanted Consumer Advice

| Working | January 21, 2015

(I’m obviously pregnant with my second child and decide to pick up a drink while I’m out shopping. I’ve heard a lot of stories from friends about how strangers make inappropriate and hurtful comments on their parenting but have not as yet had that happen to me. I grab my drink when it’s ready and sit down.)

Employee: *eating some food nearby* “You’re pregnant; you shouldn’t drink coffee.”

Me: “Well, you’re fat so you should lay off the doughnuts. See how inappropriate it is to comment on what other people are consuming? So next time, don’t.”

(I walked off without waiting for a reply, but hopefully she’ll think next time before she makes unnecessary and judgmental comments to strangers. The clincher? It wasn’t even coffee, it was a chai latte!)
