Waiting for my DC at home time today, I don't normally go into the School and wait as DC is at that "It's not cool mum" Stage. But wanted a lolly from the Mums selling them to raise some School Profits.
Anyways I saw one of the Mums who I speak to , As I don't really speak with a lot or any mums there, New to the school just recently. I go over and say hello to her and as I say it one of the other mums who I have not ever seen before says " O there she is the Lady of the night" to me!!! The other mum tells her not to be so rude, so the other mum repeats herself and says " What, I'm only saying she looking like a lady of the night"
Well it was awkward tumbleweed moment going on. I didn't know what it meant so just carried on talking. I got home and looked it up to see what it means, And I now feel as though she deserves a fooking slap the cheeky bitch. How rude.....

Were you wearing a leather mini skirt and fishnet tights?

Sheshelob Mon 08-Jul-13 18:42:50

Were you dressed as Dracula?

I think you should pull her up on it next time you see her. Doesn't need to be aggressive just enough to shame her.

Jeesalou how rude. But just out of interest what were you wearing?

bigbuttons Mon 08-Jul-13 18:44:25

What, she think you look like a whore?

Wahla Mon 08-Jul-13 18:44:51

I know you don't know this women but is there any chance that she also doesn't know the meaning of the phrase <grasps at straws>?

kelda Mon 08-Jul-13 18:45:14

Did you have your pajamas on still?

ItsAllGoingToBeFine Mon 08-Jul-13 18:48:32

Are you a Goth? (Also grasping at straws,)

lemonandice Mon 08-Jul-13 18:48:52

That's really rude, but I am wondering if she knows the meaning of the phrase? It's really weird to go "what, I'm only saying she looks like a prostitute." hmm

I agree though, what were you wearing? grin

Were you wearing something someone out of a porn film would wear? She's probably just a catty bitch.
Once my friend and I saw a woman in a v short skirt bend over on an escalator. Sh e was wearing a thong and I nearly brought up my lunch
shock

Surely she doesn't understand the meaning of the phrase?

ParadiseChick Mon 08-Jul-13 18:51:24

You have to tell us what you were wearing!

phantomnamechanger Mon 08-Jul-13 18:53:07

was this woman british? I can only assume she was mixing up her phrases and did not really mean to be insulting.

gamerchick Mon 08-Jul-13 18:53:33

To be fair she probably didn't know what it meant. You didn't after all. Your friend probably filled her in after you left, See if she meets your eyes the next time.

I would have taken it as somebody who is not seen much.. Like a hello stranger type of thing.

Cheddars Mon 08-Jul-13 18:54:47

Maybe she was referring to a night out you've been on and forgotten. confused

<also clutching at straws> How rude!!!

Sheshelob Mon 08-Jul-13 18:56:21

Were you dressed like Whitney Houston from The Bodyguard?

No. That's Queen of the Night, innit.

<thinks furiously>

Hot day so I had on a very long cotton jersey to the floor dress and shades on. Also as I was standing next to the Table there was a plastic box with money in it, The float for the lollies and she grabbed it quickly and said I will have that here next to me and moved it.
Now thinking about it she looked like an intelligent women that clearly knew the meaning of what she was saying as she repeated it. I think it was totally uncalled for even if I was dressed as a prossie what right has she to do that anyway.

GiveMumABreak Mon 08-Jul-13 19:02:35

Maybe she meant because she doesn't see you at the school gates often - I find it really hard to believe anybody would be so rude (she must've been confused and not understood what she was saying)

Unless you were dressed in skin tight leather, over the knee boots, fishnet stockings, blonde wig wielding a whip & handcuffs (which I doubt!)

Do they think you are a Julia Roberts-esque prostitute?

zzzexhaustedzzz Mon 08-Jul-13 19:13:49

have you been seen out dressed raunchily (by her husband, who told her she should dress like that?!)

DoctorAnge Mon 08-Jul-13 19:14:40

How strange

AnAirOfHope Mon 08-Jul-13 19:22:09

Strange women

You certainly don't sound like you looked like a prostitute. How odd.
