client: "Oh, I wasn't worried about the cough, I was just wondering when your baby was due."
me: looking very confused, "I, um, well..." I couldn't figure out if she knew I HAD a baby and was wondering when he was born, or if she was calling me fat. I soon realized she was calling me fat.
"I am not pregnant, I just had a baby."
client: "Oh, you just had a baby. Congratulations. When did you have your baby"
me: "Um, November... he was a big baby."
This conversation happened last week with a client I have never seen before. She normally goes to my friend, but my friend couldn't take her so I was helping out.
I admit that my body isn't what it used to be, but by no means do I look pregnant. I was shocked when this lady asked me this. I don't really feel like she even tried to explain herself or help me feel better. It was after a long day of work, and I am sure I was not sitting up straight or whatever. Either way, I doubt I will be seeing this client in my chair again.
I did see her at Trader Joe's yesterday and we pretended not to see each other.
