What the bloody hell happened here?! OP posts a funny story about a strange/annoying thing that happened and a whole bunch of shit falls out. OP felt uncomfortable. She’s entitled to. That’s all! She’s not slating the woman or insulting her or anything else. She doesn’t wish she’d smacked her one. Blown way, way out of proportion.

sunshinelove007: Yesterday I was sitting on a train, and a woman of about my age got on and sat directly opposite me. She stared right at me, and her eyes didn’t leave me. I felt awkward, and then intimidated. Then she started kicking me. I sent my boyfriend a text saying “OMG, girl two foot from my face is staring at me and pulling faces… and now she’s kicking me!…” My blood was beginning to boil. I was a moment away from getting angry when the guard appeared and asked for her ticket. She had a disability pass. She slowly asked him for a ticket, confused and vulnerable. And I felt like a massive prick. I sent my boyfriend a text saying “poor girl isn’t well. My bad. I feel awful”. You can’t just go around attacking people you don’t know because they invade your personal space. You know nothing about them or why they’ve done it. That woman sure did annoy me yesterday, but she did nothing wrong. I did. You need to open your mind.

ksn1219:  What a gorgeous ring! It’s perfect. It’s not teeny, but it’s not humungous either–I think it’s a normal size! It’s all about perspective. 🙂 I love it.

Mrs.Fay:  I see it a lot in the Natick/Wellesley area. The Natick HomeDepot welcomes dogs…not all do. The Natick Collection has condos attached to it and people seem to have tiny dogs in the mall alot…I see them in Louis Vuitton and Burbury, trying on collars and coats 🙂

I wonder how this thread would have gone if the type of stone was never mentioned?!

ksn1219:  Well obz as responsible moissy owners it’s our due diligence to tell anyone that so much as glances in the direction of our ring that it’s a moissanite! /s

Don’t want to butt hurt the diamond owners we’re impersonating over here!

ponyrider:

” and I guaranteeyou would not have “smacked her.”  In terms of assault, the law states “equal and opposite force”, which “smacking her” would not have been. Even you should be intelligent enough to react appropriately in a public place.

And, obviously, when someone asks if it is “real” you know damn well they are asking if it is a diamond, not if it physically exists “

 

Agree with you  Ponyrider. of course someone wouldn’t smack soneone hand that they’re conversing with, petting their dog!!. Obviously the woman meant no harm!. Op didn’t like being asked if her large moissanite  was a real diamond.  No need to call the woman crazy though or act shocked because the woman took her hand!

mrstodd2bee:  how is it “obvious” that the woman meant no harm? You NEVER know someone’s intentions – how naive some of you are! Sorry to burst everyone’s little bubbles of perfection and rainbows that you seem to be living in – but there are crazy people out there, and you really never know who they are.

ksn1219:  Yes, totally rude and inappropriate. I would say though, it’s not a bad idea to leave the ring at home when doing things like voulenteer work or anywhere someone might start judging you for how much money they think you have. Is that right? No of course not, it’s no one’s business. But I’m speaking somewhat from expereince. My mother has a 2ct moissinate solitaire and she doesnt wear hers to work because she doesnt want to give some people the wrong impression. She designs jewelry and her desk is in the warehouse with the fulfillment employees who probably make $10/hr. She herself doesnt make a whole lot either actually but they dont know what she makes and she doesnt want to give off the impression that she’s above them in any way… people make assumptions. Just a thought…. but that lady was still totally in the wrong for saying that to you.

ohhsnap:  possible but in this case op was petting this women’s dog,  talking to her and even took a pic of the dog!. No, have to agree with others here, think the question rankled most

. .plus as previously pointed out.  Title of this thread “I got my first is it real question”

forgotusername:  I totally agree with you that it is pretty hilarious when simulant owners get so upset when asked if their ring is real. I have a diamond and I find it to be more of a compliment than anything when people ask if mine is real!
