Ok, so there's a sale on baby stuff at local department store. I go to look for presents for Lil Niece or Nephew (if I think of it as being for Sis, I'll buy less). I wind up with about $50 worth of really cute (and useful) stuff in my carry basket. It gets put through at the service desk (big lines, they waved me through). Since there is no basket-return area at the service desk, I circle to the entrance to put it back where I found it. I thought it was right near the security gate, but, well, it wasn't. I finally realised it was a little further in the store than I remembered.
Naturally, I looked pretty dumb, as I'd been looking around vaguely for something about 2m further up. The woman doing bag checks on the gate smiles at me. I say something along the lines of, 'I could have sworn it was further down!" with an aren't-I-dense grin. She responds, "we call that pregnancy, dear." I sort of half-laughed then exited quickly. I know it was probably a fair assumption, because I was buying baby things, but I'm 176cm tall and weigh about 65kg (er...approx 5 foot 8, 143 pounds) so giving me a BMI of 21. Not fat. I spent the whole day wondering if it was the purchases (which she may not have seen..it was an opaque bag), the fact that there were a lot of mums in the store, that I was dense, or if I looked fat.
She meant well, so i didn't say anything, but I was a bit shocked by it. I wouldn't even say that to an obviously pregnant woman, but to one who's obviously not?
