That'll Teach Me!

Some of our neighbours are having some building work done which started today.
.The two young lads had really loud music blaring from their works' van.
.
"Oh I can't listen to that all day, mutter, mutter ... "
.
So I decided to nip it in the bud and act like a middle-aged housewife.
.
Me : "Excuse me? Would you mind turning your music down a bit please?"
.
Builder No 1 : "Of course love. Sorry about that"
(OMG, I'm officially a "love")
.
Builder No 2 : "Have you a baby sleeping?"
.
Me : "No"
(thinking to myself ... "I just think your music is crap")
.
So they very kindly switched their music off and we're all happy.
.
Except I get inside and realise .... he thought I'd just had a baby!!
.
I'm off to check out the WeightWatchers Web Site!

Oh it's the most crushing insult a woman can receive isn't it? I remember it happened to me when I was about 25 and at night school. It was the dress I was wearing that did it but I was mortified. Mind you, so was the lady who said it when I said 'no'.

Don't worry, Emma a couple of months ago I was wearing (what I Thought) was a very flattering top - only to have the bus driver ask me when my baby was due! - My daughter is 8!!! Needless to say the top is now banished to the back of the wardrobe!
