Wink The Backhanded Compliment

So the other day, a customer came into my work who hadn't been in for, oh I'd say about 6 to 8 months. He looked at me and he was like "Oh wow!! You had your baby!!"

I blinked. Then realized what he meant.

Dryly, but with a smile, I was like... "Yeah... I started eating healthy and it came out."

Believe it or not, it made me chuckle throughout the rest of the day... I think he was pretty relieved I wasn't angry! hehe

I love what you said! When are people going to figure out you don't say anything about a possible pregnancy to a woman unless you can actually see the baby coming out?! haha

I am having the opposite problem now. When I tell people I'm pregnant they say, "What? You are?!" And I think -- oh bet you thought I just gained all that weight I had lost. SIGH!

I loved your comment seriously it was quick and witty! I probably would have laughed too sometimes people don't think before they speak but at least the whole time he thought you were preggers and not just fat!

Oh, that is so funny! I'd love to think of something to say like that, but I always think of those things later on in the day. Never on the spur of the moment.
