I seriously could care less that I have 20 pounds to lose. I mean, my God, I just had a baby. But on Saturday I had to go for an emergency doctor's appointment- pink eye of all things (thank God no one else got it). So I'm at one of those Urgent Care clinics with Rachel, who's only 1 week old, filling out paperwork. The woman behind the counter asks how old Rachel is.
"1 week," I tell her.
"Wow," she says. "And you're pregnant again?"
Now, keep in mind this woman is supposedly a health care "professional" not some random moron at Wal-Mart. I wanted to smack her, or at the very least tell her that I only have one uterus, thank you very much. Everyone looks at least a little pregnant after having a baby. I would assume this chick had seen women after giving birth before.
And then, wouldn't you know... when I go to CVS to pick up my prescription, I get the exact same thing!! Verbatim: "How old's your baby... wow, you're pregnant again!" What am I, a rabbit?
I'm not the most patient of people, and I have a pretty caustic tongue. If I get something like that again, what should I say? Anyone have an idea on a pithy retort that won't put the pathetic individual in therapy?
