You said you’re not even planning to get pregnant right now. What wouldn’t been hard about –

Her – “Oh, I can’t wait to throw your baby shower!”

You – “We’ll see, haha. So, did anyone see the season finale of Girls last weekend? Oh my god!”


She was trying to be sweet and you really made a muck of it, picking a fight about a completely abstract idea. She wasn’t insisting on throwing one NOW, you aren’t pregnant, she was making a very kind gesture and you basically called her a selfish, grabby asshole. I would’ve walked out, too.


You owe her – and everyone else – a sincere apology.

I agree with the majority. I’m glad you apologised. Although I don’t think having been trying for awhile is an excuse. We’ve been trying a year and a half so I know the feelings but I still feel what you said was incredibly rude. Showers may be gift grabby but turning down someone’s kind gesture in the manner you did is worse. You should have just changed the subject. 

Anyway, glad you apologised and that everything is okay now.

dublingirl :  your words weren’t twisted, you made someone who had a baby shower feel like she was terrible and you were the better person for not wanting one. I’d apologize and just say you just get nervous in the spot light and you are sorry. Next time, drop it.

dublingirl :  It’s true, we don’t know the full story! We only know the parts you told us about your experience and the things you did/said 🙂
