How many more comments from your fertile friends will it take to push you over the edge?
Which ones get to you? The ones about how you can have their kids? The ones about how you should "just adopt"?
My personal favorites always included some reference to God. Typically, it was that I should consider that maybe God didn't mean for me to be a parent.
Nope, it didn't make me want to tear out my own hair. But it did make me want to pull out their hair!
And it also made me feel more alone. Sadder. More isolated.
You get the idea.
Having a good laugh instead is the best revenge. Here are a few that I thought were pretty funny. And there wasn't even any swearing involved. If the no swearing ruins it for you, insert the eff word wherever you like.
Have a good laugh. On us.
And have a good weekend too, while you're at it. You deserve it.
