This is the same coworker who once asked me if I needed a “cowboy hat” since I was wearing knee high boots and a fitted flannel shirt on a dress down day or asked where my motorcycle was because I was wearing a leather bomber jacket. She always has a comment on how I dress and I just sort of snort at her and ignore it because I don’t really give a rip about anyone’s opinion. But this was sort of above and beyond. maybe I will go to HR. I forgot how many other comments she’s made about me in the past…

What a nosey lady. Next time tell her you tried to be polite before but seriously it’s none of her business.

hmm if it were OUTSIDE of work I would tell her to f herself…in work can be tricky. I would probably be at the point to just say “shut your mouth!”

I would ask her to point you to a doctor/medical journals that knows the medical risks of wearing heels during pregnancy.
What a boob.
Report her to HR.

@the_newlymintedmrs-s17: Lol she sounds like a real gem. I love people that think they always know way better than you do. It’s like seriously? You’ll know if and when you can’t handle them anymore. I have no idea how you’re endagering your baby by wearing heels…

@the_newlymintedmrs-s17: OMG. While I know it’s not recommended that you wear heels all the time when you’re pregnant– people do it. And as far as I know, it’s never been a cause of serious issues– because if it was, it would in the book right along with raw fish.
I have a friend who wears heel pretty much everyday at work….it’s not like she’s a server or something LOL so if she’s at her desk most of the day, does it really matter? Tell her to mind her own business.

LOL at Frumpy Mc-Fashion-Me-Not. She sounds like a real peach to be around.

For god sake… people and their unsolicited opinions!!! The only reason people don’t wear heels is because 1) as you get bigger you tend to lose some of your balance and of course there’s a risk of falling (but hi I trip over myself in bare feet) and 2) your feet swell, which is probably made worse by heels. But there is no medical reason not to do so!

I am bracing myself for similar unsolicited lashes from the public. I am preggo now and as the summer arrives (when I will be at my biggest), I do plan to dress well and that includes heels.

Your feet, your uterus…people are annoying! Keep on wearing those heels 🙂

That’s rude and ridiculous. Good for you for taking it in stride.

Your co-worker is a stupid cow.

@the_newlymintedmrs-s17 I think you should go to HR. She’s said things to you in the past in regards to how you are dressing and now she’s trying to scold you for doing something perfectly safe while pregnant just because it’s not something she would do? It’s bullshit and you have a ways to go in the pregnancy and this isn’t something you should have to deal again, I’d tell HR and let then deal with it. She just sounds like a nosy bitch and she will keep giving unsolicited advice until someone puts the kabosh to it.

Obviously being pregnant AND somewhat fashionable is a criminal offense. I should just stick to crocs and mumus for the duration of my pregnancy.
Thats ok. I vented to another coworker about this at break and she laughed out loud and told me about how this one time this [email protected]#$ once confessed to wearing clothing owned by her DEAD grandmother and actually bragged about how much money she saved wearing hand-me-downs from her grandmother!
GAAAAAH why are people so freaking RUDE?!!??!?! and more importantly why can’t I ever think of snappy comebacks in the heat of the moment???
