This woman at work just asked me if I was pregnant!!
What the fuck, possesses people to ask that COMPLETELY obnoxious question of women?
A) If I was it would be no one's business.
B) Since I am NOT pregnant, it is COMPLETELY insulting.
I told her, no I wasn't and that I have just put on some weight and unfortunately my abs is where I gain. I also informed her that that is THE MOST obnoxious question she can ask a woman and if she was smart, she'd never ask a woman that question EVER again.
She of course, immediately apologized and said she hoped I wasn't mad. However, I am FUMING. As if I *needed* to feel any worse about the shape I'm in. Then she asks me why I put on weight again, after having lost. Again, OBNOXIOUS. I told her I haven't been working out, like I used to. (However, I am thinking to myself "Why the HELL am I even explaining this to you?")
I had a woman here 2 years ago ask me the same question when she bumped into me my first semester of grad school. She asked me, like this woman did, in front of another person (which makes it THAT much worse) and at that time I laughed it off, but when I got home I really thought about it and I felt extremely hurt. (It's probably one of the reasons I started working out as religiously as I did when I had lost the 20 lbs of which I have probably gained back ALL of it.)
The kicker is I have a gyno appointment today (my yearly) and was already dreading being weighed. It's the only time I weigh myself.
Now I feel like shit and just want to roll up into a ball and cry.
LADIES THIS IS AN FYI......NEVER ASK A WOMAN THAT QUESTION.
It is nothing but RUDE. PERIOD.
