@fiftyfootbride We got engaged a year and 2 months after we met, and we’ve gotten some “so soon????” comments, too. People are stupid 😛

Ours Was:

“Congratulations, I guess. Though the fact you’re (as in me) engaged shouldn’t surprise me.”

@ His barista- what does that even mean?

This is a rude comment that was made to my best friend last weekend at my birthday celebration. We were at a bar with some friends from high school and one of our friends said it made her finger look fat because the band was too thin. I couldn’t believe those words could come out of someones mouth and them think its ok. People are so rude sometimes.

One of my friends called me a bridezilla for having a bridal magazine in my purse a month after I got engaged.  We hadn’t even been talking about the wedding, she just happened to notice it there and decided that my “new nickname should be Bridezilla.”  Um, hello?  Uncalled for much?!

@amy13 Is your friend an uber-feminist or just jealous?

There were a few awkward comments about young marriage, but the worst by far was my cousin.  “Is that your fiance? No offense, but he’s kind of ugly…”  WTF??  I don’t care if you’re only 9, you should know that’s wildly inappropriate!  Sufficed to say, she was not invited to the wedding.

@Nexus-6:  Ha!  If you met her you’d probably say she’s both!  🙂

Cool post! Ok, here’s mine:

As I was getting back into my from the car wash, the guy who detailed it was like “How old are you? You’re so young to have that big rock on your finger.”  “You know there’s lots of fish in the sea, right?

Than he was telling me how he’s going to florida and he was like flirting with me. Surprised

You know what I said to him? I told him: “Yeah, there’s lots of fish in the sea … but I got a shark.” 😉  HAHA

Mine was “You’re really lucky to have found someone to marry.”

It was a friend so I THINK she meant you’re lucky to have found the one… Hopefully? That’s not how it came out though.

@ SpinningJenny – my mouth dropped when I read you post and all I thought to say was B***H!!!!!!

@ MightySapphire – I have had a lot of rude invites and I wish I could be as bold as you I just laugh really awkwardly LOL

@ Erindesmar – I also go a lot of Finally’s as well – I think it was because everyone knew I was waiting for it!

@ AnnieAAA – WOW that is awkward I never just shove my hand in someone’s face I wait for them to ask! What if they didn’t want to see it?

@ Honeypants – OMG I feel horrible for your BFF!!!!!!!!!

@ Cherylanna – wow get over yourself eh? I can’t believe she would say that over a tux rental!!!!!

Another weird one that I got on facebook was “You beat me!” I didn’t think it was a competition – jealous much!!!!!!

I’ve only been engaged about two months, but the weekend it happened I was calling all of my old friends from high school to fill them in since we’re still close.  I was talking to the girl I had been best friends with since kindergarten (my Fiance and I have been together since high school and her and her boyfriend have too) and her response, instead of congratulations, was to turn to her boyfriend and say “So, Derrick, we’re next!”

When we mentioned our plans years back (no ring yet etc) my mother (who is actually very abusive and this is not even bad for her) said with my partner sitting right there “Well, that’s ridiculous.  He’s a FOREIGNER so it can’t possibly work.”

The greatest comeback ever from my aunt “Well…since you’re from OUTER SPACE and she puts up with you, they should be fine!”

And besides – I have always had a thing for so called foreign guys – I think it was just a matter of which foreign country my future husband would be from!!
