is this rude or just me??

So I was RUNNING out the door today on my way to work. I"m a very petite small girl. Sometimes pregnancy clothes bother me b/c it's like a tent on me.. anyhow I squeezed myself into a regular shirt I wear to work.. well my belly was hanging out but I didn't realize how much till I got to work.. anyhow one woman goes "pull down your shirt" and someone else just handed me a scrub top in front of everyone.. If you have a problem couldn't you just talk to me in private?? I pulled my pants over my belly and refused to put the scrub shirt down. I was so annoyed. I don't like my belly hanging out but I don't like looking like a slob either!!!

with my pants pulled up it looked fine..no belly showing!!

I just thought if they had aproblem they could've said something in private not been so rude??

They could have pulled you aside and talked to you privately, but showing your midriff, cute baby belly or no, is generally considered inappropriate in most work environments.

I totally agree I didn't want to be showing my belly didn't know it was showing.. and it was fixable if they would've said something to me!!

I agree they should have pulled you aside, but they probably didn't realize YOU didn't realize your belly was showing.
It happens.

I think it was rude. They should have pulled you aside or at least been a little bit more discret.

Yup, rude!!
I'm a firm believer if you need to "correct" me or point something out, then don't humiliate me, but take me aside and let me know!!
Sorry mama

yeah, I'd say it was rude the way they handled it. I'd treat it just like if your zipper had been down or something..
