Angry People need to learn some manners!!

so i was at walmart this afternoon picking up groceries and some cheap cotton fabric for halloween costumes and the lady at the cutting counter says to me--"cute skirt" i was wearing an enwrapture skirt (36 inches) and had it up over my belly and a long tank top over it. so i told her how it works and showed that it was two layers and she seemed to like it. then she says, "you know when you wear it over your belly like that you just look fat not pregnant"!!!

and my jaw hit the floor. Seriously, do people not have any manners at all!!! I'm 28 weeks pregnant with my 3rd baby so i definetly look pregant---NOT FAT and even if i did look fat--how rude!!


so i actually had a witty comment form in my brain and i said to her. "you know it's a good thing we're at walmart. Cause walmart sells everything, so maybe you can go buy yourself some manners!!!!


i left her standing there cutting out my fabric. she already had about 5 bolts of fabric sections cut and i didn't take them with me. i'll go to joanns!! That's all--just had to share how rude some people are. they open their mouths without even thinking

OMG I can't believe that she actually said that to you! What a witch!

Good comeback, Mama! I would have been speechless.

As much as it sucks that she was so rude, I just love that you totally pwned her with the comeback + leaving without fabric. Niiiice.
