The thread about the aunt who comments on someone's weight, reminded me of something my stepmother does. But unlike the aforementioned aunt, my stepmother is a sweet person who means nothing wrong with it, so I'm not posting it there but just here because it's just a little bit brainhurty.
Background, I don't see my father and stepmother often, maybe once every few months.
Each time when I meet up with them in summer, my stepmother says: "Have you lost weight?"
Each time I meet them in autumn or early spring or winter at their place, she says: "Have you gained weight? You look healthier!"
Each time I meet them at Christmas in my own house, she says: "Have you lost weight?"
The thing is, when they see me in summer, I'm wearing fewer clothes. Same in winter when it is in my own house, because my house is always quite warm.
When I meet them in a cold time of the year at their house, I'm usually wearing more layers, because their house is cooler. So I look more "filled up".
The kicker is: each time she asks, bless her, I explain it to her just like I explained it up here.
But she doesn't remember and just asks again the next time.
It's sort of funny. (Because discussing weight is not such a huge etiquette breach here as it is in America and because she is so sweet. She genuinely is just observing. Inaccurately. LOL. )
