Today I was at the YMCA snack bar with my two young children ordering up some food. While the cafe worker was getting my order together, a man with a YMCA Volunteer badge came up to be and we had the following conversation:

Guy: "mumble mumble mumble I have to say I find you attractive mumble mumble mumble"

Me: (thinking maybe I didn't understand with all the mumbling) "What?!?"

Guy: "mumble mumble mumble I find you attractive mumble mumble mumble"

Me: dead silence. I'm stunned. I don't get hit on...like ever. I'm always with my kids and/or my husband. Both kids start fussing about something.

Guy: (pointing to my 33-week belly) "I"m good at this...5 months?"

Me: "Seven." My son starts crying. Is this guy seriously using my pregnant belly as a way to flirt?

Guy: "Is this your son?"

Me: "yes"

Guy starts trying to console DS. He reaches down to touch him so I protectively pick him up and DS shoots guy a nasty look (I was proud). I throw my credit card on the counter to speed up the process as quickly as possible.

Guy: "No, let me get this for you."

Me: very sternly, "No, I will get it."

Guy: "I got it." Tries to be all suave. There may have been a wink or something.

Me: "No."

Cashier senses awkwardness and quickly swipes my card. Whew!

I grab my food, walk away and sit down. A few minutes later I had to go back to get a napkin and I can see him checking out my backside as I walk by. Then he comes and sits down at the table next to us.

I know I'm hot stuff and all but that was just weird. Did I mention that I am 33-weeks pregnant and had my 4yo daughter and 2yo son with me?

I was going to say exactly what Melly24 said!
Funnily enough my sister and I were talking over the weekend and she said "So you getting hit on a lot?" I laughed and told her I hadn't(although men have openly stared at my boobs. but they are pretty hard to miss these days!) and she told me that the last few months she was pregnant men hit on her all the time.
We joked that it was because guys thought she was easy since she was already pregnant!

Funny! People really have too much time on their hands!

That was creepy weird. Some folks are just that.

My Mom works at a small grocery store in the woods where they live. She printed a picture of my Son and I that I had emailed her and put it on the counter to brag (my son was 4 months when taken). She had a handful of men ask "Is your daughter single?"

Interesting.

CREEPY!!!! to say the least. About 2 wks ago I literally had to call DH to come to the grocery store with me because I keep "catching" men looking at my breast and it was making me really self conscience. Yes, I know they are huge but please Im wearing a tshirt and a "sturdy" bra, it was so weird. I mean like their eyes were bugging out and glued to my chest. DH was doing some errands and had dropped me off but laughed when he met up with me but after a little shopping he was like "wtf weirdos!!" he started to get a little annoyed with all the "attention" I was getting.

Oh, wow... totally creepy.

Yes, you're hot... but an admiring glance is one thing.... this is a whole different level of CREEP.
