i have a shirt that apparently makes me look pregnant. i have worn it to work twice, and twice people have asked my due date. once a man, and last night a woman.

as i was showing this douche-bag woman to her table last night (i am a restaurant hostess. i do it for the unbelievable health insurance) i asked how she was, as it is part of the job, she said good and asked how i was "feeling"..... i thought it was strange but as i turned around i noticed her looking at my non-bump, and she then asked when i was due..... i replied "I'm not pregnant, just FAT" (Thanks Michelle!!) Her husband made a terrible noise signifying his mortification, and the woman promptly put her head down and apologized. By this time we were at the table.... i put the menus down and walked away, saying nothing else to them.

i really just don't get it. i mean, obviously i know i have some work to do in the weight loss department, but seriously, i don't look pregnant!! fucking people are so ignorant. i hope that woman feels like shit for days. what an asshole.


  1. Blech..WTF! I wish people would STFU! So glad you spoke back at her :) And thanks for the shout-out. :) *huge hugs*

  2. WTF!!! Why do people do that to themselves? They have to be beyond embarrassed when they find out what they've just done, so why can't they keep their mouth shut to begin with?! So frikkin rude? I hope they left you a KILLER tip! Oh were the hostess, well at least you didn't have to keep interacting with them all night. I'm so sorry!!!!

  3. Oh my gosh. At my last job I wore a dress one day and TWICE that day two guys asked me when I was due. The first time I was just in shock and couldn't believe it. I didn't even know what to say. The second time I was pissed because of course I'd been thinking about the first time all day. the dress was so cute but sadly hasn't been worn since.

  4. OMG... seriously? I mean, who the hell asks someone when they are due? Even when someone is blatantly 9-months pregnant, there should be no asking.

    I am so sorry that happened to you... what a jack. Some people have no tact.

    Hugs to you, my friend :)
