It's just amazing how busybody the general public is....
With 2 events happening the same day.
It is really to much for me to stomach.
Baby Bear was screaming
obviously still upset with the pediatrician for cleaning up his umbilical cord.
I went into MacDonald.
In hopes of buying breakfast and finding a cozy spot to feed the hungry bear.
The manager saw me and approached me.
Found me a spot and offered to buy breakfast for me...
(super appreciative *thumbs up* for the proactive act!!)
comment #1 from some random aunty in mandarin.
"she wants to feed baby ask her sit inside inside."
Eventhough I heard her coment loud and clear, I choose to IGNORE her!
I can sit wherever I want to nurse my child.
It is a natural act of mother nourishing a child.
And NOT pornography.
Proceed to feed baby bear.
The drama king was inconsolable.... Still screaming his lungs out...
Comment # 2, same random aunty to her friend in hokkien
"she don't have enough milk for baby. Poor thing."
Then told me in mandarin...
Feed other side (of breast)
Again I choose to IGNORE her.
Hello aunty, so much milk until can make milk shake can?
Then she buay tahan.....
Ask me if I am not Singaporean and if I understood Mandarin.
My classic reply, "YES, Singaporean and understands Chinese and Dialect PERFECTLY!!!"
Event # 2
*Baby Bear in sling fast asleep*
"Is there a baby in there?"
PRC auntie: *Proceed to lift my resting arm away from the sling*
"don't put your arm there"
Me: I ignored her, pushing my arm down resisting her from pulling my arms away
*pull open the sling*
"How many weeks?"
Me: *irritated* *glare* *made irritated noises*
Luckily she kept her distance,
if not I would have gladly displayed my profound Chinese vulgarities!
Am I just plain unlucky?
Or has anyone else also experienced the same problem
with "helpful" stranger's random comments?!?!?
