Odd

I have to say, I think I got my widdle feelings hurt recently. A woman I worked with asked me if I had any pictures of my kids. As luck would have it, I had a little folder with one picture of each of my three kids. They'd just had their school portraits done.

I gave the folder to the Lady, and she looked at my kids one by one, but didn't say a word. Not one. Gave the pics back to me. That was that.

Makes you think a lot of things. It just seemed unusual to not say a single word. I don't think my kids are ugly or anything, but I was definitely waiting for something.

Nothing.

Odd.

Made me a little bit sad. Who knows, right?

  1. What a wierdo! (the lady I mean) I wouldn't be offended if I were you. Something tells me just one of "those" people.

    I think I saw pics of your kiddos back in J-Land through a private journal, I believe. And they were beautiful!

  2. That is odd and sad. I've seen pics of your children and they are beautiful. I know that doesn't help that situation but who knows what the woman was thinking...I choose to think she was jealous.

  3. Reminds me of when my inlaws were over and I cooked for them for the first time. A yummy dish I might add...almost as yummy as your kids.

    Don't worry, it's not my food, and it's not your kids. Get it?

    Love,

  5. She doesn't sound like anyone I would want to associate with. As everyone else has stated it's not you, nor your kids...It's definitely her being a rude sort. (Hugs)Indigo

  6. I would be offended too.
    Sounds to me like maybe she was jealous?

    I've never seen your kids before, but I'm sure they're beautiful.

    Don't sweat it, babe.

  7. You know there are social customs in this world and one general one is that you oooh and ahhh over pictures of children (regardless of what they look like). It's just the way life is supposed to work. I'm sure your children are beautiful. Obviously this woman struggles in the social interaction department. Either that or all her children were tragically killed recently and she didn't trust herself to speak. That's about the only other excuse I can think of. People.

  12. Hi Jimmy,
    Don't sweat it ... this woman sounds like a graduate of the Witch Hazel Charm School. Next time she gets all dressed up or something, why not try asking her: "You look different. Did you do something to your hair?" ... and leave it at that. No "it looks nice" ... just leave her dangling and walk away.
    Best,
    Marty

  14. WHAT IN THE WORLD ? WHY ASK TO SEE THEM, IF YOU WON'T EVEN GIVE SOME KIND OF COMMENT? SOUNDS LIKE ALL HER LIGHTS AREN'T ON UP IN HER ATTIC!

    LOVE YA

  15. Who knows what she was thinking. I wouldn't lose any sleep over it though. You know how special your children are and that really is all that matters in the end anyway. Have a happy hump day Tuesday. Luv ya JP!

  16. I think you should ask to see pictures of her family.....and then do the same thing. That would be awesome.

  17. Oh I can so relate to what you are feeling! I had a customer contact me, wanted to meet me and view my portfolio. I meet her, she sits down asked me one question, I answered she noded her head said thank you and left. She never looked at my portfolio, and the question was something like "Do you book more than one wedding a day?" My response was "No, we devote the entire day to your event." Then she was GONE. WTF!

    If I asked to see photograph of your child/children I'd make a comment of some sort. I'd find a feature of them that is beautiful and everyone has SOMETHING special about them!

  18. That is very odd. Maybe she was jealous of what you have. Some people react that way when they are envious. They just don't say anything at all. BUT that is very rude.

  19. Ok Lippy, your kids are hecka cute. I have no doubt they willl all be lil heartbreakers one day. So forget the crazy lady, she might have been having an off day. Otherwise she is just weird. : x

  20. Your kids are beautiful Jimmy! I loved seeing them in photos and their cute 'lil dog too! Maybe she was eaten up with jealous, just pity her. It seems awfully rude though on her part. Jeannette xx
