We live in a world where everyone is offended by everything. Which can make it hard to write a post like this because I don’t want it to fall into the category of ” no one can say anything these days!”
Because I agree- people take offense to way too much.
But sometimes I feel like it is justified- and there are still some things out there that need to be addressed.
So I’m going to do it.
I recently went with a friend to help out a local shop owner\blogger package her product that she sells. There were about 30 women in the room– just random people who answered her plea for help on Instagram.
What I’m saying is- most of us didn’t know each other- only the one or two friends we came with.
Anyway, we were sitting on the floor- in our own little circles working on our packages when a lady next to me and my friend started talking.
In an obnoxious, loud tone she hollered to us:
“So who are you? What do you do?”
She came off a little abrupt- but we were polite. My friend answered her and then asked her what she did and she went on to tell us that she was a mom of four and a photographer.
The conversation then turned to me and she asked what I did. I told her I stayed home with my two daughters.
She then asked their ages.
7 and 5 I told her.
Then a pause
In a loud, somewhat crass tone she snipped:
“So being that we are in Utah aren’t you going to keep going and have more?”
My heart sank for a brief second even though I could have bet 100 dollars she would ask me that. It’s not the first time I’ve been asked by strangers if we are going to have more kids.
