We have had several family members visiting over the past month, and all of them have said the same two sentences which put my nerves on edge every time.
1. How much do you weigh now?
WTF! How is it any of your business how much i weigh? I can weigh whatever i wanna weigh! That is my right as an american citizen! Plus, you are visiting and staying at MY house! Totally freakin rude!
2. I dont see a ring on your finger. Are you even engaged yet? Why are you planning a wedding if your not engaged?
No matter how many times i explain the whole diamond-falling-out situation, they are still convinced that im not engaged! Since when is a ring required for an engagement? Again, MY house! Freakin rude people need to go home!
Sorry, i had to get that off my chest.

The 2nd one would get annoying, but I suppose that’s just something you will have to explain. Everyone thinks that you need a ring in order to be engaged.
The 1st one, however, is extremely rude. Why are they asking you? To make sure you fit in your dress? I think I’d fire a snarky comment back, maybe ask them how much they weigh first. I wouldn’t put up with that. I know my mom doesn’t ask me, but she says “it doesn’t look like you’ve gained weight so the dress should be ok” which is an ok thing to say (plus she’s my mom), but guests in my own home I’d be ticked.
Rant justified 🙂

#1- WTF??? Who the ^&&* does that? Unless you’ve been talking to someone specifically about your weight, it’s none of their business!!
#2- I hear you. My engagement ring was a family ring set in yellow gold (which I didn’t like) and the diamond was loose, so I couldn’t wear it. I *finally* figured out the setting I wanted (found another estate setting), and I will get my engagement ring 6 days before the wedding! 🙂

thank you! It is nobody’s business but mine how much i weigh. the extremely weird thing is, i may be overweight but the people asking this are all 200-250 lbs or bigger! Seriously, they have the gall to comment on my weight? Thanks for responding!

Ugh that would bug me, I get the weight question all the time because I’m so tiny, its like why do care so much?
And the ring thing, I do not have my ring yet, Fiance is waiting for the proper funds but we ARE engaged. Everytime I say the words “my fiance” their eyes go straight to my finger! I’d rather have a heartfelt commitment then a random ring (not saying i don’t want a ring, but I want the ring he has picked out just for me)
