I work with the public, but never realized just how ridiculous people can be about not respecting personal boundaries until I got pregnant. People do not hesitate to tell me I am big, small, touch my stomach and ask about a million other personal questions. The kicker is that people seem offended when I dodge their attempts to touch my stomach.
Por dio it is a good thing I cannot have children, because there would be an "incident" in such a happenstance. What is it with people?!!?!?
