Just wondering if you have had any rude comments made to you about your engagement (or lack thereof) and any unwanted advice?
The other week I went to a nail salon and was sat next to a very loud woman who felt entitled to shove her opinions about my life on me.
I had taken off my e’ring along with the other two rings I always wear (an Irish Claddagh ring, and my great great great grandmothers e’ring) to have my nails done, because I hate getting lotion on them, and they were neatly stacked in a little pile, she looked over at them and said ‘Why do you have three engagement rings for!?’ I politely said, ‘Only one is an engagement ring, the other two go on my other hand’, she then said ‘What kind of person needs three rings? Are you posh?’ trying not to laugh I said no, I have just always worn these other two rings.
And you can probably guess I was feeling pretty uncomfortable, she then asked how long I had been with my partner for and I said 5 years she then said extremely loudly ‘5 years?! It took him 5 years to propose to you!? I would of demanded a ring or left’ I said to her quietly ‘I’m only 25, and his 27, we are still young’ and in the same loud voice she said ‘YOU WILL BE DRYING UP’ I almost died, the entire salon was looking over at us!
After a few heavenly mins of silence on her part, she decided it would be appropriate to tell me about her ex-husband, and how her two children from that marriage had been taken away from her by child services, and that she is now married again after knowing this guy for 1 year, and they had a 6 month old.
She then told me I must have my nails done like her for my engagement party I told her I wasn’t having one and she was absolutely outraged! She also thought it was necessary to tell me what dress I should wear how to have my hair and told me that my eye brows were too light…
I’m sorry lady, but I don’t think I will be taking ANY advice from you, thank you!
I’m a pretty laid back person so I find it all hilarious now but at the time I couldn’t wait to get out of there!
Have any of you lovely bees had any rude comments / unwanted advice?
