To be a tad miffed at this suggestion?

I was out with our dog yesterday and bumped into a friend who was riding. We said hello and then she shouted when she was further off "I hope you haven't left DS". (My husband was at home with him), I said no and told her this and she said "good not on his own then?" As if I'd walk the dog and leave my baby behind, I'm really rather hurt, does she think I'm stupid?

no, she doesn't think you're stupid, she was making a joke.

Perhaps not a very funny one, but she was trying to be flippant

Btw from her tone I don't think she was joking

you're being over sensitive surely

hmm, it probably crossed her mind.

I guess you had to be there

MAybe she was just making conversation and not really thinking?

What an odd thing to say.

I think she was thinking about her lunch or something, and not really concentrating.

or she could just be INCREDIBLY bossy?

I get this on the rare occasion that I'm out on my own. It's meant (and taken) as a joke.
