Confession with the cleaning lady

CL: "Do you have any kids?"

Me: "No, not yet."

CL: "I have 3 kids and 2 grandkids."

Me: "Oh, thats nice."

CL: "How old are you?

Me: "Um, 37."

CL: "I'm 39."

Me: "Wow, thats great."

CL: "You still have time."

Thanks cleaning lady. You made my Monday.

But she sure did get down here at my Dad's house, man oh man. Thanks again 39 year old cleaning lady grandma, you rock.


  1. Ouch! *giving cleaning lady a good virtual whack with her broom*

  2. UGH! Thanks a lot. NOT!

    Sorry, that sucks!

  3. Here is why I'm known for having no tact...because when she said she was 39, I would have responded with "Wow, you must have started really young - or your children did." And then she would have been offended, and the conversation would have ended. :)

  4. I hate these kind of conversations with fertile strangres, why does every conversation have to revolve around offsprings or the lack there of.

  5. Ugh, I'm sorry. However, the way you wrote it made me giggle.

  6. I know--is it terrible that I'm laughing right now?

  7. wow... just wow.

    Hope you're enjoying being home (despite 39 year old CL grandmas).

  8. Ah age.....first I was dying to be 25....and now I refuse to believe that I am several years beyond that...throw babymaking in the mix...and I am feeling rosy!


  9. She has 2 already? OMG, my ovary hasn't even learned what it's supposed to do yet unless someone pokes it with a hot poker. I'd forget to flush next time she's coming over. (Not really but it's fun to say.)

    I hope you're enjoying your time.

  10. you most definitely do not want to be a 39 year old grandma. no no no.

  11. That has gotta sting, I am sorry honey. But you will be a Mom one day. Hang onto that.


  12. She's only 39 and has grandkids already!?!? OMG!

    I hated comments like that too. We mostly got: "You've been married for 5 years, when are you going to have kids?!" Oy vey.


  13. Wow, with your other commentors, don't want to be a grandma yet!
    Areyoukiddingme has a good idea too.

  14. WOW! even though i would love to be a mother someday soon, i am SO thankful that i'm not a grandmother in my 30s. geesh!

  15. I hear about 39 year old grandmas and I shake my head. But at the same time -- ouch!! That would've gotten to me ...


I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE comments! To me its like getting a present from a mystery person, ok well some of you are not such a mystery... but u feel me. You can subscribe to my updates via email or in your feeder of choice. Thanks so much for stopping by!
