  • Mood:

Perhaps not the most tactful approach

So, at a meeting today my boss mentioned that I would be starting maternity leave next week and wished me well. Afterwards a colleague came up and said, "I didn't know you were pregnant. I thought that you were just getting fat." Umm yeah. You might want to leave that second part off the next time you encounter this situation. Fortunately I am not too easily offended and found it amusing. I made various colleagues laugh by passing on the remark (without identifying the person).

I suppose it's still a step up from when people ask a woman when she is due and she isn't actually pregant!
