There should be some type of law that would force people to think before they speak. People should be fined for the dumb crap they say. I guess if that were the case, though, I would have no one to roll my eyes at and write blog posts about. LOL
Last Sunday after we left the Baby Boogie Bash, we decided to get some dinner before we went home and Rylie chose IHOP. When we walked in, I was carrying Rylie and Brian was carrying Bryce. As we were waiting to be seated, there was a family walking out and the mother commented on how pretty Rylie looked with her face painted like a butterfly. Then she looked at Bryce and looked back and me and told me how cute they were. I saw her glance down at my mid-section and then I heard the words that every woman dreads hearing... "and you're expecting another one?"
Um, OK lady, while I'm picking my jaw up off of the floor, feel free to pull your foot out of your mouth.
Really!?!?! I was wearing a dress, and maybe since I was holding Rylie my back was arched and my not-so-flat belly could have been sticking out a little bit, but come on. Who says that to someone unless they know without a doubt that they are pregnant?
I just gave her an evil look and said "um, NO." Then she glanced and Bryce and proceeded to really wedge that foot in there good by saying "Oh, you just had one."
"Yeah, almost two years ago!"
I stared her down, simply said "WOW", and walked away. I am NOT going to make someone feel good for insulting me. No way. Maybe next time she will think before she speaks.
I think we will fine her $50 for the first stupid comment, and another $100 for making even another one after seeing what could have only been a look of complete and utter shock on my face!
The dumb comments don't end there, though. After dinner, two older men walked up to the cash register as we were paying. They were talking to the kids and then one looks at me and said "Are they twins?"
Yeah buddy, they're identical!
The fine for that idiotic question will be $40. The standard dumb comment fine is reduced by $10 if it doesn't offend anyone.
It is a good thing we went home after that. I don't think I would have been able to take any more stupidity in one day.
