Why would I share my most embarassing moment with all 5 of you who read this? Ask her. She did it on her blog and I’m shamelessly copying her. But, to be exact, she copied it from them. If you need a pick-me-up, read my story, then go to those pages and read theirs…you will laugh for at least 10 minutes, I promise. Especially at Jen’s…it’s pretty bad! 😉
Ok here goes.
Last year I was getting groceries at Publix. I was really feeling good about myself that day; I had dressed up for work (it’s a laid back office so I usually wear jeans, sandals and some kind of top). I was wearing this really cute dress over my nicest pair of jeans and heels. This dress ties in the back and is a little poofy.
While checking out, the cashier (who was probably 75 years old) asked me if I’ve joined the “baby club” (which is a club you can sign up for at publix to get coupons & stuff). I, of course was shocked but I didn’t know what the baby club was…I thought she was basically asking if I was pregnant, so I smiled (but really dying inside) and said “no”. She then proceeded to tell me that I can sign up for the baby club for free coupons, etc. I didn’t want to be rude so I just said “ok thanks”, thinking “oh crap there’s a real baby club?? she thinks I’m pregnant!” The lady who was bagging my groceries (who was also about 75 years old) said “how do you know she’s pregnant? she doesn’t look pregnant to me!” By this point, I’m looking at the exit..ready to run outta there. The cashier replied, “well, just look at her!” I looked down too, wondering what in the world she saw. Then I saw my dress was poofing out at the very obvious spot!
It got even worse. They asked me when the baby was due (I made up a date) and if I knew what it was (a girl) (side note: jen, i remembered this very funny fact later). And then I said thanks, took my receipt and cried all the way to my car!!!! Needless to say it was a real downer since I had felt so confident about myself earlier. I couldn’t believe someone could think I was pregnant?! I still can’t believe I made up a due date and the sex of my unborn child, but I didn’t know what else to do!!!! It was too late at that point to go back!!!
It’s ironic now because I actually signed up for the “baby club” yesterday when I went to Publix. 🙂
Ok now, to be fair, you have to share yours. And no one can say “I don’t have one” because you know you do…just think about it for a whie. I had forgotten about this one until yesterday when I went to Publix for an errand. SHARE AWAY!!!!!!
