!!!!!!!!!! I've read several pages on this thread and this one takes the...not cake, that's too nice a word...flake??? Oh my! Did she expect that a mother would wish ill for her baby????
During pregnancy with DD, I went for the triple marker test and such, thinking, if something is out of usual, I'd like to be prepared. Good thing the probabilities came out much lower than would be expected for my age, because I'd just have worried. Next time, no such tests, thanks! I don't even think that I'll go for the NST at 12 w. 20 w is good. Doppler heart rate the rest of the time.
Woman: Oh, I'm so sorry. Don't you wish she just had cancer or something? At least cancer kids die.
I am not even kidding that my jaw hit the floor. I think I actually stood up from my daughter, which is just about the worst thing I could do for her. The clerk at the till and the people behind her all reacted about the same way. I swear you could hear a pin drop.
The woman never recanted or reacted in anyway. She honestly feels like this... I don't even remember what I said, but the cashier who knew my daughter and I really well checked us out super fast, and the last I saw of this woman, she was having a conversation with a very angry store manager.[/quote]
I'm so sorry that happened. I can't believe anyone would actually say that. I don't think I would have been able to maintain my composure.
