Ok, so I was in Tesco earlier and this complete idiotic stranger says to me "HA! That dress makes you look about 6 months pregnant!", It's a black maxi dress. I give him a great big beam, like this >> :o , and go "Awww really? Thanks! I thought it made me look about 9, but I'm only 7 and half months!". I know, I think it was meant to be an insult but it really didn't work. I only wish I'd had a camera ready to get his face, it was a mixture of ShockBlushHmmConfused

I cant believe he said that Shock

But Grin at your comeback

YANBU. What a pig.


Tee2072 · 20/04/2011 15:05

Not the way he was expecting that to turn out!

Who says that to a stranger?!?!


GwendolineMaryLacey · 20/04/2011 15:05

I've just got back from Tesco, think it must be Tesco's annual Twats' Open Day, there are a few of them around...


marmaladetwatkins · 20/04/2011 15:09

The heat does funny things to people's brains. Daft twat.

Well done though.


madonnawhore · 20/04/2011 15:21

Lol. You should have said, "And those trousers make you look paunchy and balding".


Eggphemia · 20/04/2011 15:22

Oooooh wonderful comeback! Grin


saffy85 · 20/04/2011 15:55

I love it when a rude comment backfire on the gobshite that uttered it. Especially in such spectacular fashion! Grin Good for you with the comeback. I'd have scowled and given him the finger, thus lowering myself to his low shitty level.


JaneS · 20/04/2011 16:00

Grin Oh, that is wonderful! What a twit, too.


LDNmummy · 20/04/2011 16:03

The heat makes men think they can be extra crytical of womens bodies or voice their appreciation on a more than average basis.

Love your retort Grin


b1uebells · 20/04/2011 16:25

What an idiot he was! How did he know whether you were/weren't pregnant in the first place!! Love the come back!


caramelwaffle · 20/04/2011 16:32


Nice comeback


HomeJames · 20/04/2011 16:36

Yes, good comeback, I would have been too shocked had that been me.

Tesco's annual twat open day? That's at least a weekly event in my local store!


ShavingGodfreysPrivates · 20/04/2011 16:37

I had a very similar comment from a bitchy 'friend of a friend' who I hadn't seen for ages.

She said "god you look about 5 months pregnant in that get up"

She nearly exploded with contained rage when I pointed out that actually I was due to give birth in 2 weeks time :) I love it when things backfire on bitches!

Oh yes, had another one the other day >

A lady said to me "I love your pretty dress it makes you look like you're having a baby"

I let her off on the grounds that (a) she has learning difficulties and (b) I was indeed looking rather bloated that day!


Melly19MummyToBe · 20/04/2011 17:37

There was a woman standing near to us at the checkout and I swear, she nearly wet herself laughing when she heard my reply :o

That was a brilliant comeback to a very rude man. Fantastic. Hope you are proud of yourself! Grin What an arse!


CrapBag · 20/04/2011 19:29


What a tosser he was for saying that, and well done for thinking of such a great comeback! I never can until after.


slowshow · 20/04/2011 19:31

Fantastic! What a tosser.


DontGoCurly · 20/04/2011 19:40

hahah! Grin

You owned him!!!


Melly19MummyToBe · 21/04/2011 11:35

I'm usually crap at thinking of comebacks until hours after, but this one just came straight into my head. Good job I actually am 7 and a half months pregnant though :o

diabolo · 21/04/2011 11:38

Excellent reply, I can never think of good ones until hours later.

The idiots are not just confined to Tesco though, in Sainsbury's earlier a man (total stranger) made a horrible comment about the very large pot of double cream I was buying.


Champersonice · 21/04/2011 11:44

Really awful if he was being nasty but just to look at it from another angle, what if it wasn't intentional? What I mean is this:

I knew a guy who had a serious head injury and although he looked and spoke perfectly well, he really wasn't himself and would say the most outrageous things to people. It was terribly embarrassing at times.

Just a thought!


Melly19MummyToBe · 21/04/2011 12:11

That's very possible Champers, although I don't suppose we'll ever know whether it was, or wasn't intentional.
