Last night, one of my customers asked me if I had kids. He’s been a random customer for years. Not a regular. (I own a restaurant.)
I told him “No, I don’t have kids but I have an awesome nephew!”
He replied, “Why don’t you have kids???”
Me: “I am waiting to go back to the fertility specialist.”
He said AND i QUOTE::: “Rub your stomach and say, “Jesus, I want a baby.” I will pray for you!!!”
I am an atheist. I wanted to punch him. I think I would have felt the same if I were a Jesus fan.
This was by far the dumbest thing a random person has ever said to me when it comes to this topic.
I have been asked this question dozens of times. Throughout the years, I have answered in many ways.
The past couple of years I have told them that I am dealing with infertility. This shuts most people up. Any other reply leads them into the “what are you waiting on” spill. Most people feel bad after I answer them. Oh, well. Don’t ask such a personal thing to a person you hardly know.
Anyone else have stories like this?
