    @beachbumbee:  Yeah she sounds pretty obnoxious! I guess everyone knows she is one of those loudmouth obnoxious types so I wouldn’t let it get to you.

    At least you don’t LOOK pregnant or it would be so much worse. Trust me. I’ve had it happen… my belly is my biggest problem area. I’m not fat but I sometimes do look pregnant *sigh*.

    It was majorly inappropriate of her to blurt that out in front of your boss. Sounds like she speaks before she thinks.

    Uhg, some people just don’t understand boundaries.  Sounds like you handled it very well by staying calm and standing your ground by not sharing too many personal details about it.  Just be glad you just have to go in there to make copies, that poor new girl is stuck in that office with crazy lady all day 😉

    @beachbumbee:  Yeah totally! I just don’t get it. I mean I don’t look hugely pregnant or anything but I am definitely self conscious about my stomach and trying to lose some weight. Some people need to learn manners.

    I would let it go.  I was on the phone telling my sister I was getting married, and someone overheard (this was before start time, and I wanted to catch my sister at a specifice time…).  Within minutes the entire company knew.

    You gotta work with these people, so it’s better to roll with it.

    I think that this is not the worst I’ve heard… It’s annoying that she’s obnoxious, but I don’t think your boss being male had anything to do with it. And caffeine is something you give up while pregnant- she’s not saying you look pregnant, it’s the same thing as when people refuse alcohol

    I don’t get why it matters that your boss is male?

    First off….. take a deep breath.

    Then ask yourself….. why do I let this woman bother me so much? Why do I waste my energy thinking about her?

    Then…. remind yourself that she is just an idiot and move on.

    @beachbumbee:  She sounds abnoxious.  I have a co-worker like that I try to ignore her as much as possible but its hard sometimes.  I guess my advice is just let it roll and forget about it even though it is annoying.
