Were your children blatantly eating their lunch? Maybe they should have got to the toilet to do such as thing. I know eating lunch is a natural act, but not something I want to see when eating my lunch.

i take it you have never been to beach in uk and seen a topless woman.
and you have never gone topless your self.
you have of course never bought/read the mirror or sun or daily star.

Was the baby offended by the sight of you putting your toastie to your mouth, flapping the bread around?

In to hope of making a yawn thread more interesting, can I ask Bucharest why you have that name?

Good for her, shame more people don't do it like that.

<<shamelessly brandishes enormous nipples>> grin

Porphyria YABVVU...the woman was feeding her child, thats what her breasts are for, they are not just ornaments for her jumper. Why should she have gone to a discreet table? Are you just as offended by the wonderbra model on billboards? Why could you not avert your gaze? Have you never encountered a woman breast feeding publically before?

Shakirasma- I opened a travel book and the writer (Bill Bryson) was in Bucharest!

Oh right. Thanks bucharest I just wondered because dd1 is going there in 2weeks on a school venture.

You mean you could see her whole boob? Like, not airbrushed or anything? Shocking. I'm amazed you recognized it for what it was.

Shame on the woman, she should know better than to use her breasts for their natural purposes.

LoopyLoopsBettyBoops Sun 22-May-11 17:45:04

Are you upset about the size of her nipples? You do realise that's out of her control?

mybrainsthinkingfuckyou Sun 22-May-11 17:45:29

YABU. That is all.

LynetteScavo Sun 22-May-11 17:47:47

I've seen woman feeding like this.

One large woman in the children's library forgot to put her breast away after feeding. (I did consider pointing it out to her about 10mins after she had finished feeding, but she was busy chatting to her child, and it would have seemed kind of rude to interrupt)

Such women make me laugh, but don't put me off my toastie,

RobynLou Sun 22-May-11 17:48:40

I've done what the bfing woman did, got my boob out to feed DD2, only for DD1 to demand something. I spend so much time with my boobs out atm it's easy to get distracted by a child and forget they've been set loose...

I also have enormous nipples...we haven't been to a cafe today though so it wasn't me!
