The other day I was at a store with my daughter, who is 14 months old. An old man walked by and looked at her, then at me, and said, “Is that your daughter?” I said, “Yes,” and he said, “You barely look old enough to be a daughter yourself.” WTF? Was he trying to call me a teen mom? I said, “Well, I’m actually 25,” and then he just kind of huffed and walked away. Like people in his generation didn’t have kids way younger! It was rude.

Seriously–don’t people know that you really shouldn’t comment on a) people’s health or health habits and b) their age?

Sheesh.

I get comments all the time about my height (5′) and while I recognize no one’s doing it to be malicious, it’s like I get it–I’m short. Why do you feel the need to comment on it??

@pumpkinpatch:

LOL my own MOM had 2 kids by the time she was 23. I graduated college and everything before I had a kid and he’s looking at me like I’m in middle school with four babies!

People speak far quicker than they think sometimes. 

Unfortunately, all of us are guilty of it at one time or another.  However, some people are just blatently rude all the time.

@pumpkinpatch: ugh, rude. that is one of my biggest pet peeves when ppl make negative remarks about something someone else is reading. keep your comments to yourself, you don’t have to eat it!

Heres one for ya…

I was grocery shopping a few months ago and loading 3-24 packs of bottled water into my shopping cart (we drink ALOT of water). So this biatch comes up to me and says “Ugh, people who buy bottled water are ruining our earth”. I looked at her completely dumfounded and said “huh?”. She then proceeded to say “I think its selfish to consume so much bottled water. Haven’t you ever heard of Brita”. Keep in mind, I’ve never met this woman before. I was so aggravated that I screamed “WELL I GUESS ITS A GOOD THING I DONT GIVE A SHIT WHAT YOU THINK!!!”. I actually got an applause from a young couple who overheard our interaction. 

Why do people feel the need to interject into our lives? Grrr, so annoying!

At work today, one of the male managers was talking to me about my manager (who is a woman) and how she is bossy. He said “If she were a man, I would take it better but it is hard taking orders from a women or even just having a women manager above me”…..uuuh, what did you just say?!

and one more…

I was at Costco with my 4yr old nephew and we were waiting for a cheese stick sample because he desperatly wanted one…after a min or so of hovering around the sample table, the lady put one out and as I am reaching for the cheese stick, this guy out of nowhere reached his arm over me and grabbed it and walked off eating it….how rude!!

@pumpkinpatch – no doubt! I was surprised with sexism/racism being serious in the workplace he would even say that!
