Can't believe they just said that...

So I'm in DI (a thrift store), when I see 2 employees gossiping about another one. I try not to judge that they're not doing a lick of work when one walks over to me.
"Are these ALL YOUR kids?" she asks.
"Sure enough" I say.
"Wow, how far along are you?"
"5 months."
And with a super sweet 16 year old naive voice.....
"I'm expecting my first, I hope I never get that big."

I stood there, pondering whether I should laugh in her face,
or give her a lesson in tact.
Instead, I smiled & told her good luck.
Oh, to be so young with such rosy colored glasses.

Wow. At DI they are supposed to be training employees to give good customer service. If it were me, I would call DI up and let the supervisor know that the employee was offensive, maybe not intentionally, but out of ignorance.It would be a good learning experience for her. She will be eating her words when she ends up humongous in a few months. You are hardly looking pregnant. At 5 months I looked ready to deliver. She would have had a valid point (although rude) if she was talking to me at 5 months! Keep your chin up - you look cute! :) Daneece

My mouth dropped open when I read this. I don't even know what to say. I think I would have asked her how old she was just to see her reaction after that comment.

Well I have to tell you that I have serious hopes to get that big someday...but then again I am 30 with no kids and I have lost my 16 year old voice all together!
