At least you could explain that one! I was told (shows how you should never follow rumors) that a certain supervisor on my floor was pregnant. She is a heavyset nurse. I go and tell her congrats and ask when she is due, and when she said she's not pregnant I just wanted the floor to swallow me up. I have to work with this person! Ugh! I never every believe rumors even if they look 9 months pregnant, unless they tell me themselves.
Right. Unless I actually see a baby coming out of a woman I NEVER assume or guess that she is pregant. Been there, done that, ug.
When I was 20 years old a work friend invided me to a baby shower. Now he was a work buddy of mine, I had never met his wife. I was vaguly aware that they were expecting a baby soon. I have no idea why I was invited but I called my mom and asked what an appropiate gift would be then went strait out and got it.
When I arrived at the shower I was expecting to find a pregant woman, instead when my buddy introduced me to his wife she was holding what looked like a new born baby. What did I know? I had never been associated in any way with a baby shower before.
In an attempt the pay his wife a compliment I said, "Wow, you have already lost ALMOST all the baby weight!
She looked at me unsmiling and said:
"Thanks, he is adopted".
Curiously I was never invited back to their house for anything. That was the LAST time I ever accepted an invitation to a baby shower.
