I don't why it bugs me so much.<br><br>
I'm back to work now and I have to pump 3 times a day at work. There isn't really anywhere private to do this at my work so I just use one of the conference rooms (no locks so I put a chair in front of the door and I sign over the handle). Somehow pumping is everyone's business and I hear comments the entire time from the otherside of the door while I'm in pumping. My co-workers will even say them right to my face. I am so tired of being compared to a cow.<br><br>
The question that just got me so mad yesterday was "do you ever feel like moo-ing?"<br><br>
Why would I feel like moo-ing? It drives me crazy that this natural function of HUMAN mothers providing milk for their baby is seen as so unnatural or out of the norm. I'm hoping with time people will become so used to me pumping that it will be the norm there but gosh I'm not a cow!
