So today at work, I had to go drop of some mail at the reception desk, the woman who works up front made small talk, and asked if I’m taking any holidays this summer, I told her no, because I’ve saved mine up for the wedding in Sept. She goes “Oh, your getting married?” and I tell her yes, and she goes “Oh you silly girl” in a well..not so happy voice and turns away. I walked back to my office a little annoyed.
I get that you might not agree with marriage, or you had a bad divorce, but I DONT CARE. Im happy, Im excited and I dont want to hear your opinions BECAUSE I DIDNT ASK!!!! I’ve honestly gotten this a lot at work and from a couple friends ( I work in a big company) and Im getting tire of it. An its funny because the people who make comments are either A) divorced B) Single and drink all the time or C)or are unhappy in their marriage. Or the best (like I’ve mentioned on other threads) WHY are you getting married…..UGH Im going to lose my mind. I’m supper happy (same with my FI), and I usually dont let comments get to be, but sometimes it gets annoying.
Ahh…..feels better. Thanks for reading 🙂

Oh yeah. I always loved those comments. I still hear them quite frequently at work and I honestly just ignore everything.

Why would someone say that????
At my work everyone was super excited…but that may be because I’m a teacher at a school full of engaged, recently married, or only-married-a-few-years women…

If someone asked me “why are you getting married?” I would ask them “why are you in my face?” or reply “why do you think?”…
Obviously they are mean and bitter people and that’s why their relationships did not work out lol. Ignore them.

How rude of that lady! Ugh so annoying and mean. I’ve been there and gotten all those comments. I think you need to be more direct with those people and brush them off, eventually they’ll get the hint that you don’t care about their opinion so they should keep it to themselves. And yes people from my work that have said things to me like that are usually sad people dissatisfied with their love life. Don’t let them get to you!

I can see how that’d get annoying. Wedding naysayers should shush.
Congrats to you! 😀

That’s rude… You shouldn’t let it bother you, clearly it’s their problem and not yours. I get it though, I’m so not interested in having any interactions like that, that I just kind of give minimal answers and let the discussion end any time my engagement or future wedding gets brought up around more than just my closest friends and family. People will always take the opportunity to criticize others’ choices that make them feel uncomfortable with their own lives.

She totally has a bug up her butt, people can be so rude. Just because they fail at something, does not mean YOU will.

Ugh, rude! I don’t understand the way some people think – that because they had one bad experience with something, it’s all bad and nobody should do it. That’s silly.

I’m glad other bees agree. Am I the only one who is dealing with this!
