- Wedding: April 2013
Today I had to leave work around 11, I ended up running around town getting signatures for something and having a couple of meetings with some clients. It ended up taking me four and half hours, so you can imagine I was relieved when my boss told me not to bother coming back to the office. I went with my co worker and a friend to have apps and cocktails since happy hour was just about to start. We get to the place have a few drinks, and wait for happy hour to start so we can order a few apps.
A big group of guys came in, you know the type loud, cursing, probably were annoying frat douches in college. So one of the guys bumped into me, he didn’t have the good manners to say sorry, but noticed my ring when I put my hand up to protect myself as the guy practically walked right into me. First thing he says “oh no what sorry sucker put that ring on your finger” umm excuse me, you don’t know me, you just bumped into me, and now you have the nerve to be making smart aleck comments about my engagement ring?
So he starts cracking jokes to all his friends who are laughing, saying completely inappropriate things about women, how marriage benefits us, how I’m probably going to let myself go, get knocked up and expect to sit on my ass watching soap operas all day while claiming its hard work. Of course the asshole was projecting, as he eventually mention how happy he is that he going through a divorce. I can see why! Eventually his friends tell him to stop, and my friend got pretty upset and responded back to the ahole!
I was beyond annoyed, she ended up telling the guy to go F*%k himself, . This is the nastiest encounter I’ve had so far. I’ve been engaged almost six months and had the ring for half that time, and a lot of random people who I don’t even know, seem to enjoy making “jokes” like oh now don’t do it, get out while you can, why are you getting married?, or my favorite marriage is obsolete I don’t see the point in it.
Why can’t people keep their freaking opinions to themselves, I am a stranger you don’t know me or my fiancé, so why do you feel it is necessary to comment negatively on the state of my relationship? It is so annoying! Anyone else have people reacting to their ring or engagement in that fashion?
