Strange... the thread about the alternate temp group, seems to not allow me to view anything past the 3rd page of replies. I did go over there and found the teal button, and joined with a masked email that will disappear in about 3 hours, so hopefully I don't need an emailed invite to join, but rather a PMed one on Bump.
Gah, this is such a shame to have the whole point of a DDC messed up right as we head into the final stretch of our pregnancies! I was about to tell about this rude "piece of work" who sauntered over and stood in my driveway and had all kinds of things to say about "are you pregnant AGAIN?!" (she doesn't even know me by name, nor I her!) and "Well I think 3's enough for anyone!" (we pay our own bills and make our own decisions about our family, thank you) and then kept saying, "Well, I'm just SAYING!" to which I said, "Yes. And what you are saying, is very rude." But she wouldn't leave so I finally just asked her if she had any other criticisms she'd like to proffer about my husband's and my lifestyle, and waved Buh-Bye, and she stomped off muttering nasties, then audibly told the rest of the gang of rejects she was "hangin' with" out in front of the low-rent tenement down the street, how they shouldn't go over and talk to me because I was so rude!
HAHAHAHA! Yay, you mean she won't be back? Win-win!
I don't even know that person except seeing her face go up and down the street periodically over the last few years. I think she was a teen a few years ago, though it's really hard to tell because she's morbidly obese and has disfiguring acne, which no one would choose, but one of my best friends had that acne problem and I don't make fun. But I wonder, did she have some aggression toward me, or did she really just not get why it's not polite to issue negative opinions about someone else's family, especially with their daughter standing right there? She may really not have meant anything, nor realized how poor her social skills are.
But, if she never approaches me again, I can't say I'm sorry!
