I just had a "moment"- - vent

Dh and I went to a local Chinese restaurant for dinner. We were the last table in the place. Our waitress made a comment to the restaurant owner and other waitress, that she hopes she makes enough money to buy a packet of cigarettes and is able to pay for her bus fair with tonights tips. . Our waitress was visibly pregnant, I am guessing 6-7 months along, and said this out loud in front of us. It killed me that I left a $4 tip that was buying a pregnant lady's cigarettes.

I got in the car and just cried. Life is so unfair! Frank just doesnt get it. He said atleast you dont have to ride the bus and your life is better than hers waitressing at a Chinese joint.

Vent over.. Sorry to unload on you guys..

  • Hey we all have our moments, so don't apologize for pulling the V-card on us.

    You have a legitimate reason for being upset, I can't imagine how hard it must be to see the stupid people of this planet walk around with something you want so badly clearly unaware of the gift they've been given.

    We're here for you anytime your husband doesn't get it.

  • I'm so sorry Cheryl.  I can only imagine that moments like that make your journey even more difficult on you.  As the other girls said - don't apologize for needing to vent.  We are all pulling for you!
  • I'm so sorry. I know this has to be so hard on you. Don't ever feel bad for coming here to vent and share your frustrations, pain and hurt. We're here.

  • Ditto everything everybody else said.  Hey, at least you didn't go off on her.  I probably would have.

    In fact, I almost got fired from a waitressing job for "giving up" a table in which 2 very (ie, 8 months) pregnant women were intending to drink heavily.

    Same here.... she got it exactly right.  Sending hugs your way!!

  • I'm sorry Cheryl.   I agree with everyone else.  I see stuff like this and I'll turn to DH and say "If we have trouble getting pregnant, *this* will make me really mad at God."  He always reminds me I shouldn't say that, but its the truth.  Sorry you had to see that...you're going to make such a wonderful mommy some day!  ((HUGS))

  • I have nothing original to add so I'm just sending you big hugs.
