@Cory_loves_this_girl:  I can’t believe someone would actually say that. I have heard of folks asking if someone is pregnant when they’re not, but not just outright asking if they are fat. Seriously? What is wrong with people?

@Cory_loves_this_girl:  Rude! People never fail to amaze me. At least you’re pregnant though. 🙂 I used to work retail in high school, and a customer once asked me if I was pregnant. I was discussing baby clothes with her, admittedly, but come on! It wasn’t like I was huge even… a size 14 at the most.

Needless to say, I was mortified.

Ugh, why are some people so stupid?  Sorry he said that to you. I know how it feels. Quite a few years ago a woman I worked with asked me “Have you always been this big?”  I was so upset I wanted to cry, but managed to reply “Have you always been this rude?” and walked away.

@Cory_loves_this_girl:  I wouldn’t even say that to someone I know, let alone a stranger or someone at work (my workplace or theirs). If someone has gained weight, they are the first to know and they sure don’t need me pointing it out.

A mother at my daycare walked in to the daycare about a year ago. 


“How far along are you?”

“Four years.”


“Oh, I thought you were asking me how long I’d been fat.”


She was so embarrassed.

@Cory_loves_this_girl:  I love old people. I’m pregnant, and I had a woman at the grocery store tell me she only gained 15 pounds with 5 of her kids, and 20 pounds with the 6th. And that she had 45 stitches with the 6th, so no matter what, I should NOT gain more than 15 pounds! (Side note, my starting height/weight was 5’7″ and 127 lbs)
