I popped into Sainsbury's earlier. Only needed giraffe milk for Matilda, yet managed to spend £60... did get the free packet of nappies though.
It was almost 4pm so the store was closing, they only had 3 checkouts open, with around 5 people queuing at each one.
The manager tapped me on the shoulder and said "I don't want you queing, come with me" and put all my shopping through at customer services and packed my bags for me.

Wow! That is good service!

That's great service! nice of them to be considerate

That is really good of them, I would send in a letter of thanks for that

I did note her name so I could do so Yoyo. Must do it now whilst I remember...

When I'm at bluewater, I just get people staring at me as if I'm some beached whale that came in with the Thames tide...

Eeejits. Your bump rocks!

That's so nice - I would also write a letter!
I've had two extremes recently - the first, at the theatre last weekend, we got bumped up to amazing seats in the disabled area as the lovely usher took one look at me and said "You'll be more comfy here dear." - we were like 'Nice one baby!'
The other, when bringing 5 heavy bin bags of books and kitchen stuff to the charity shop this week, I decided to be kind to my painful back, and ask if they could give me a hand to carry them from the car (there were about 5 members of staff not doing a lot), and the woman who came with me moaned that she really shouldn't be helping because she had a bad back but didn't want the other ladies doing it either! I did snap "I'm sorry, do you not want the donations then? I am 8 months pregnant!" Silly cow! Annoying as it's the first time I've ever asked for help (other than from H) and she made me feel like I was putting it on or something!

Oh Lamby, that's horrid.
14/04/2013 at 22:12
Lamby, I would have just said "oh that's fine then if you can't help, I'll just take them elsewhere". Moany old bag.

I really should have done, it was one of those situations where you think of the perfect thing to do or say after the event - probably not helped by baby brain!
BTW BW, just seen your post, what is it with stareres? Hope you stare back! I must keep my head down a lot, but when out with H he said he was really noticing people looking at my belly - not in a horrible way, but I guess the bigger we get the more attention we attract! You have a fab bump though, I say the bigger the better!

Sometimes, if I'm asked when baby is due, I think about lying and saying I'm not due for another 2 months, or that I started having contractions an hour ago, or that it's triplets - purely for my own amusement

I was in SCATS yesterday.
A lady walked past me, clocked me, then my bump, laughed loudly, said 'wow' under her breath and carried on walking.
I'm clearly a freak show

BW - you really should. Or better still, pretend you're not pregnant and watch them melt with shame, muhahaha!
Hep - that is shocking! Seriously, what is wrong with people?
My friend went to the cinema at 40+7 and someone stopped her and said "Shouldn't you be in hospital?"
