A Newer Version of Being "Pregnanted"

So, I'm in the gym this morning and one of the regulars comments that I've lost a lot lately. I explained that I had been on some drugs that caused me to puff up and I had gained about 12lbs during my treatment. She asked me what kind of drugs and I explained they were fertility drugs but due to other issues, was not able to continue (was not in the mood to explain). Now, I like this lady who I usually refer to Marc as "the stinky lady with the hot bod". Stinky because she bathes in perfume before working out. Sweat + Perfume = Julie gagging. Anyway.. she asked why I discontinued treatment. I explained that due to medical reasons we weren't able to have children. We could have continued treatment but it was highly unlikley we would get pregnant and, even if we did, there was a very good possibility that IF we were able to carry to term, there was a huge chance of some serious genetic issues. Ready for this one? You may want to sit down. No, wait, lay down Fuck that - get a drink, I'll wait..... She said, "you should go ahead with the treatment, have those tests they have now an if there is a problem... JUST abort". Huh? You know, just terminate - no big deal. Ok, spends tons of money, invest emotionally & physically and then abort AND IT'S NO BIG DEAL????? Mind you, the stupid little cunt says this to me while I'm holding 25lb weights in my hands. I then explain that we are adopting and she explains "oh, that's nice" and walks away. I hate stupid people. This is why I don't carry a gun. I'd shoot stupid people.

  2. I would have dropped one of those weights on her foot and told her just to amputate if it didn't feel good.

    What a b****.

    Sorry you had to deal with that stinky thing.

  4. Now you can describer has stinky cunt lady! It fits in so many ways!

    If you were not in such a state of shock I'm sure you would have put the 25 lb dumbell up the dumbell's ass. Sorry for you mama, take care of yourself and keep up the good workout regiment. Since you told me I have 5 months before the Repronex weight will leave my system anyway, I have decided to avoid the gym for at least that long!

  11. Oh no!!!! I'm always astonished (speechless, actually) when someone says something so incredibly stupid. It makes me feel VERY insecure about the world we live in, I mean, in terms of the "other inhabitants."

    Don't you ever wish you could just pause for a long uncomfortable moment and then say, "You only think that because you are an idiot." ? Wouldn't that be great?

    I'm going to consider adding that to my repertoire of responses.

  12. She is stupid. Fancy even saying that to someone. And if she thinks having an abortion is no big deal, then she's a stupid bitch. The emotional consequences of an abortion are devastating, and most women just don't realise that it will affect them so much. Well done for resisiting the urge to hit her.

  13. You don't have a gun, but you do have 25 lb weights. Next time, aim for her foot....

    What a frustrating encounter. I've unfortunately had my share of stupid people as well- I can relate to the frustration.

    Hang in there.

  14. I'm with wessel. That's definately going in my repertoire of comebacks!

    What control you have, Julie. The weights would have been flying if it were me.

  15. People are SO STUPID. Unreal! I'm sorry you had to listen to that nit-wit. UGH! You should get a big star for not flipping out on her - I would have!

  16. That is what makes the world such a sad place, that people actually will "say" such things, and they actually "feel" that way.

    To her it probably would just be "an abortion". Makes no rhyme or reason.

    Sometimes when I hear things like that it makes me think about the entire Pro Choice, Pro Life issue? I don't consider myself either.

    I have never been in a situation where I thought that abortion would be any type of answer, but I do like knowing that If I were ever faced with some type of situation, that the option would not be denied to me.

    Although I know I could never do it, I do like the fact that I even have a choice, anyway.

    Some people look at abortion, as just a type of birth control. They are truly the sad people.
