Re: Rude questions need good comebacks.....

When we announced pregnancy with Brintson I had people asked me if he was Planned? I said only since I was a little girl... were you planned? I am a bick JA like that. But it shut them up.

Re: Rude questions need good comebacks.....

I have not read all the responses yet but . . .

Was this planned?

"Well do you mean did I plan to make love with my husband and have the possiblity of God blessing that union again - you bet ya!"


Was this a surprise?

"Why would you think that?"

(Put the pressure back on them to think about what they are asking and how dumb they sound)


Do you know what causes this?

I love my husband's famous response - "well yes of course I do - why do you think I keep going back?" That seems to shut them up real fast! C'mon I don't know many men that don't like s*x so what're they gonna say???

OR

"well we think we've figured it out and gotten it down to a pretty good art consider we have 6 already but do you have any advice since you seem so concerned about our sex life?"

Of the famous
don't you guys have cable tv?

"well yeah - where do you think we learned it from"

Re: Rude questions need good comebacks.....

My DH throws their stupid comments right back at them...

me: "we're expecting in march!!"

friend or family member: "was this PLANNED???"

DH: oh yeah!


me: "well...i'm pregnant!"

friend: "was this a surprise????"

DH: only that it took so long!


me: "we're pregnant!"

friend: "OMG, were you TRYING??"

DH: yes and we loved every minute of it.


needless to say, most people just don't ask anymore. rotflol.

Anyway, the worse one I ever got was from my FIL.... His response after we told him what was wrong with Bram (spelling it the best way I know how, to show his ignorant accent):

"Wull, watr ya'll gun do, just abowrt it?"

I was speechless.
WTH!! Are you kidding me! That guy needs a swift kick in the Arse!

Re: Rude questions need good comebacks.....

lol mamas, these are all great! it sounds like i'm not the only one who has been asked these questions!

"you &%#$#$$% &%#%^ %$###$6!!!!!!!!"

Each "Excuse me?" is to be accompanied by a confused look, as though their question was spoken in Farsi-accented Swahili. If they persist, follow up with the same confused look accompanied by "Why on earth would you ask a question like that?" in a tone that asks for an actual answer. Try not to laugh when they stammer.

Re: Rude questions need good comebacks.....

In response to "was this planned?" my answer would be "yes, according to Psalms 139:13-16, God's had it planned for a long time!!

As a mother of two of the same gender, expecting a 3rd, I don't like the implication either, that we only "tried again" in hopes of getting a boy! I love my girls, and would be totally happy with either gender!
