I know some people use humor often or sarcasm to communicate, but pregnancy can be a sensitive issue. Regardless, there are many reasons why people return books. Your reason is none of his business, and the comment was unnecessary at best. Sorry it hurt your feelings. Did you say anything back to him?

I would have been pissed and said something ugly like maybe his mother felt that way but I don't! I also would have asked to speak to the manager and informed them that they need to do some customer service re-training with him! But that's just me. I'm a bit of a B***** that way.

Sounds like a bad attempt to be funny ugh. It would have upset me too. I'm sure karma will get him back one day for talking to customers like that.

It seems like he was just trying to be funny. I don't really think anyone would imply you don't want your baby. People are just strange sometimes lol, some of the absurd comments people make when you get close to your due date are real gems too

I agree, it sounds like a bad attempt to be funny. Of course it's one of those things that shouldn't be said, but some people just have no filter. I probably would have been a little shocked by it, too, but I doubt he really meant anything by it.

I think it sounds like a poorly worded joke.

I agree with the others. A really bad attempt to be funny! Some people are very socially awkward. Humor is one way of dealing with that. I get like that IRL situations. Try to be funny that is. Think of all the kids that are on the autism spectrum, they grow up to be adults. I think that plays into the foot in mouth situations.



Yes, upsetting, but I wouldn't let it bring you down too much. ((Hugs))

Well i am glad i'm not the only one who would have been upset.. I didn't really say anything back i just hurried up the return.. i think it hit me hard because he doesn't know what all i've been through to get this baby..i would never give up my baby or wish him/her away..looks like hubby was right though walmart online has the book on sale for $6 & some change cheaper..

It was rude, but could have been unintentional. You never know. He could have been making an attempt to be funny or even flirt (wierd but I know several men that adoooore pregnant women lol). He could have been kicking himself after you left, like why did I say thay?? Ya know lol. You never know what people are thinking.

Personally I think the guy was trying to be funny, I wouldn't be offended but I would probably call the store manager and let them know that the comment wasn't appreciated or humorous and maybe their cashiers should avoid commenting on sensitive issues like that.

the problem is he is the store manager. i think that's another reason why it stung a little more.

that is just a comment by someone ignorant, it may upset me depending on how emotional I am for the day ... then again I might have made a joke on it (I am quite a smart a**) like oh good you can return my baby too best bookstore! ... and make him feel as uncomfortable as possible ...

I would be more upset that dh had me go all the way back to return it. Not that big a price difference.
