So I told a supervisor-type person at work that I am pregnant.* I said it happily, the way you'd expect a 30something married mommy-to-be co-worker to report the news. She said, Huh, thought you had gained weight. (Mental response: Hey, bitch, I've lost 15 pounds!) I didn't get mad... she's the kind who says mean and/or socially inappropriate things under the guise of 'kidding' all the time and I'm inured to it.
One of my coworkers was absolutely enraged on my behalf, though. She spent the afternoon trying to think of a more inappropriate response. So I present, the top five more inappropriate things to say to a female co-worker who has just announced her pregnancy.
#5 "Is it yours?"
#4 "So you're disabled now..."
#3 "Ewww.Parasitic growth."
#2 "Can I touch your breasts?"
#1 "Are you keeping it?"
I invite you all to please top these.
This was not the big boss. I told her a while ago and she was nothing but awesome about it. This is not the same as telling the Lucy job. That conversation is yet to come. I thought of this as a practice run....
