Ugh, some people just don’t know when to stop talking.

That… Wow. I’m just stunned that anyone would actually say that. Whether or not people think it is one thing, but to verbalize it is just straight crazy. I can’t imagine you actually look that much older than you Darling Husband, though. That guy clearly had no tact OR brain.

Wow. Talk about a lack of situational awareness (on the part of the doc).

Sorry that happened, sometimes people are just oblivious!

What an idiot!!!  (hug!)  Some people have no manners whatsoever.  Just consider the source.  And consider finding a new optometrist, lol.

Maybe he was hoping your Darling Husband was your son because he wanted to ask you out or hit on you or something.  Just sayin’.

He probably needs new glasses.  Try not to let idiots bother you!


ETA- he looks about 3-4 years older than you.  Please don’t worry!

Talk about insensitive…

I just looked back at your wedding pictures and you are gorgeous! I realize that you are late 20s, but you really do look young!  My guess is that your Darling Husband is probably right – you probably dress professionally due to your career. People assume, then, that you’re older.

@greenviolets:  Wow, you two make an adorable, beautiful couple!!  And you look like a baby to me, really, lol.  I’m probably old enough to be your mom.  NO, you don’t look older than him, you two look close in age to me.

If it makes you feel better people like to assume I’m my dad’s wife.  He’s 30 years older than I am so a) creepy abd b)HE’S MY DAD. You definitely don’t look old enough to be your husband’s mother!

@greenviolets:  Don’t worry about it. Dude was just tactless! Also, some people’s ideas of ages between parent and child are….skewed.

My friend has a little sister that looks JUST like her, it’s creepy. She is 24, little one is 5-6. Whenever she babysits or takes her out, people not only ASSUME it’s her kid (not even asking!) but usually if they ask something they ask “Is that your ONLY kid?” or “How many do you have?” She used to get really offended, but now realizes it’s just a situational thing.
