Wow! That is really nosy and rude! That is something that is private and personal and she really shouldn’t ask you. I only had someone say something to me once about what I was buying and that is because I bought beer, batteries, spray paint, lighter fluid, some snacks, and toilet paper. Kind of an odd combo of things!

Oh! And I hope your test turned out the way you wanted it too! 🙂

People can be so ignorant! Try to let it roll off your back…and hope the test was what you wanted it to be too!!

Is it bad if I admit that now I want to know the result of your test?? Embarassed I can’t help myself and my nosiness.  But I certainly would not have asked if I were her and I would have been shocked if I were you and the check out girl asked something like that.  I’m actually a super open person with my friends…. but come on lady, I don’t know you, you don’t need the details of what’s going on with my uterus.

They are trained to not comment on purchases unless you do.  I’d tell a manager.

OMG! She should not have asked you that!! This made me think of a good idea for a thread though!

She shouldn’t have said it but it doesn’t suprise me!

Wow, I’m nosy, but not that nosy. As the cashier, maybe I would have made a mental note, but not to the person. That is really rude and presumptuous. Who said the pregnancy test was for you anyway.

I’m curious, though. What was your reaction? Did you say anything back?

Most checkers only notice weird items, not everything you purchase. It does surprise me that she asked, but I don’t find it all that offensive. And checkers are not going to get in trouble for asking questions like that. She probably wanted to live vicariously through your excitement.

Yeah I get a bit paranoid when I purchase certain items, but they aren’t really supposed to be commenting on it.  I’d either brush it off, avoid them the next time you’re in the store, or call the manager and complain.

Wow, that’s so terrible!  The closest I ever came to something like this was about 6 or so months ago… I purchased my first ever pregnancy test when my period was late, and the cashier was fine, but the woman behind me started pointing and laughing! I was incredulous.  And I hate to admit it, but I started blushing deep red.  Mind you, she was asian and I don’t think she could speak much English, but still – how rude, no matter what culture you’re from! 

And it was negative, just in case anyone’s wondering! 🙂
