So a customer at work came up to me today and asked "OMG, when are you due???"

To which I respond: "Um, I'm not pregnant."

"You aren't??" she says. "Oh, I think it must've just been a shadow. Or maybe your brush belt. Yeah, that's probably it."

Thanks lady.

Open mouth, insert foot. I love how she tried to explain herself & get out of it. What a TOTAL loser.

Joy, you're beautiful so forget her comments. Just remember, she has absolutely NO tact.

LMAO! And the post of the month award goes to StephieCee.
On a serious note, Joy take no notice of people like that. She's probably so jealous of you & makes comments like that to make herself feel better. If you wanna me to fly over & kick some ass just shout!

Thank you -- you all are such sweeties. I wish that I hadn't let that lady affect me, but I've been self-conscious about my weight lately (and I'm PMSing, so great timing, lol).

I really believe she wasn't trying to be malicious -- she was honestly like "aww, you're pregnant, wow!" But I think it's a BAD idea to comment on someone's potential pregnancy unless it's SO obvious that the baby is gonna drop any day now.

It's funny though -- my reaction was to go home and eat ice cream. Now how does THAT make any sense?? haha, sigh...

Hi Joyeuux,

Mabe you should take that ladies comment as a compliment,i know it's easy to get upset especially if you are worried about your weight etc,.Mabe what she really meant is that you look healthy and glowing,your skin and hair were looking particularly shiny and lustrous!!!! A good hair and skin day!!!!

Don't feel bad. Once, when I worked retail, a 70-year-old lady told me how much she liked my lipstick. I said thank you and she said, "It looks just like one of mine."

Joy pay no mind to that. I am not a skinny chick and i get that "but you have such a pretty face" line with the look of sadness from people it's those people i wanna kick I love myself the way I am and with the amount of IMs i get from guys daily it's obvious someone likes chubby chicks cus i hear how pretty i am from them all the time lol.and it all comes down to how you feel about yourself. if you let these people get to you then they win they have some sort of power over you. You have to stand up with your head held high and love yourself for who you are with all of your talents and F*** the rest of the world and what they think since in your world what they think shouldn't matter anyway.

joy, i'm sorry
don't pay any mind to ignorant people like that.

one time, like, a month ago, i said to these regular customers at my old job, "oh, you're pregnant!" because i only see them sitting down, you know. then, i realized she was a bit big naturally and i stood there, with my hand across my mouth, like, oh, my god, and then she's like, "yep! due in 2 months!" and i was so relieved.

i admit, people talk outta their asses sometimes. i'm sure the lady meant no harm. you're gorgeous

I know how you feel Joy. I was in Vegas in January and i wasn't in my tip-top shape, but I was far from big. I had like 5 people ask if I was pregnant. I got soooo mad cuz it felt like everyone was saying the same thing to me. When I told them I wasn't, they would be like "oh but you have such a glow...it must be cuz you're in love" I was just like "yeah whatever...just tell me I look fat"

I definitely think people should keep pregnant comments to themselves unless the person actually says something about it. Most people would get very offended, cuz the majority of the time they're not pregant.

yeah that does make sense. eating can be sooo comforting, I know, I do it all the time. Haagen Daaz-Ice cream is the best for that purpose ;-)
I´m sure the lady felt sooo bad after saying this. probably worse than you did *lol*

hope that doesn´t get you down...not even with your PMS. heads up, you´re beautiful, girlie
