Good morning!

This morning at the continuing legal education seminar:

Kate: "Oh, hi, partner-at-the-last-firm-I-worked-at-and-left-with-hatred-in-my-heart, how are you!? It's been so long!"

Partner: "It really has! I see you're pregnant - congratulations."

Kate: "Uh... no."

There is a reason that the word "douchebag" is making a comeback, and your former colleague is a perfect example. Your photos from Paris clearly show a woman who is not even a little bit pregnant.

I am guessing that this jackass was a man?

Kate said...

Nope - a woman, and she wasn't even visibly uncomfortable she'd said it - she just segued into "or just had a baby..I can tell, as a mom, the way your weight is all in the stomach." I mean sure, she was sort of right, but fuuuuuuuuuuuck.

Yeah, that's a harsh toke. I got that comment after I gained weight following hormone treatments that put me into an early menopause. Like I needed another reminder that I couldn't have any more babies. Jeez. Sorry this happened to you. :(
