That’s so weird! She doesn’t even know you, why does she think it’s appropriate to ask questions like that? Even if she did know you, ick!

I did have the owner at the donut store I visited a few weeks ago try asking me out, and when I said I was just married, he looked at my ring and started bragging about how he made a lot of money between his donut shop and the gas station, and how he “could really take care of a girl”.

Hmmmmm….was he hinting I should leave my hubby for a donut shop guy?  LOL.

LOL…I suggest that you do not go back to that gas station or her gas station in Fresno.  LOL, what a freak!

I just hate the weird lack of boundaries people have when there is either a ring, a pregnancy or a baby. It’s this weird exception to all social protocol.  In no other situation is it ok for a stranger to grab another stranger’s hand randomly and start closely inspecting their jewelry. No, even though my belly is huge, that does not entitle you to touch it (I’m not pregnant but you get the jist). Can you imagine the harassment charges if people came up to random non-pregnant women and just started touching their bellies? Maybe I’m just more of a “personal bubble” kind of gal, but it seriously bugs me.

@MrsWBS:  Ha true.  People never say anything about my diamond and I’m guessing its because they think its fake lol. But I do turn it into my palm when I’m walking down the street. 

@onesweetworld:  Maybe she was hinting she could take care of you just like the donut guy lol jk.

@AdriannaJean:  You know I’ve never grabbed anyone’s hand to look at a ring, but I also didnt realize how common that was until I came to the bee and read stories.  I also have never touched a pregnant ladies belly but also didn’t realize how common that was until I saw the montage with Pam on the office, and I think someone gave either her or Angela a shirt that said Don’t Touch!

That is odd, really odd.  I haven’t had any odd convos about my diamond most people say nothing about it and thats fine with me.  Especially if it helps me avoid conversations like these.

@AdriannaJean:  I totally get that. When I used to take my neice out when she was a baby the amount of people who would just touch her without so much as a by your leave. I would never dream of touching someone elses baby without permission. Who does that???

@AdriannaJean:  An old coworker of mine said that she’d get random strangers touching her belly ALL THE TIME. I was like, I will slap any strangers who touch me.

I can’t think of any weird encounters with my ring. I’ve had family take my hand and want to see it, but that’s not really weird (we’re pretty touchy-feely). I’ve had a few strangers (like cashiers) comment on it and tell me that it’s gorgeous, etc. I did have a random girl at my bridal shop (one of the consultants) grab my hand (gently) to look at it better, but I more or less expected that.
