Today a woman asked me when I was expecting, and I was all ‘Nope, sorry, just fat!’, and she was super embarrassed, and now I feel bad for her.
I mean, I wasn’t hurt or even really offended, but she was so upset!
So now I’m thinking I’m kind of a jerk because I was all ‘whatever, don’t worry about it’ and that probably didn’t make her feel better at all. She was being sweet and misread how I was holding my hand, and it was awkward.
Well, I wasn’t being awkward for a change… it was actually all her being flustered and unhappy.
Ugh. So how should I have handled this?!? Inquiring minds want to know!
