Rude comment about hysterectomy

Insensitive with a capital "I"!!!

It seems like I have heard everything since this surgery! Amazing.

Do people actually HEAR what they are saying? I have grown a thick skin since I embarked on this journey. Comments that people make now, just roll off of me. I am not going to let them get the best of me.

I chalk it up to mainly ignorance and no sense of class.

When someone makes a stupid comment, I start giving them gory details about my ordeal and how it became necessary to do this in order to function in life. When men make stupid comments like, "You are just milking it now" or "aren't you better yet?".....I reply...."When you have a vagina...come talk to me!" It shuts them up quick.

It usually clears the room quickly and I don't usually have to deal with these airheads again.

I feel empowered when I can have the last word!

That is just awful. Not sensitive or imformed at all, for someone to make a comment like that. Don't they know this is a MAJOR sugery, and necessary?

Hopefully some will get a clue and if not some understanding, at least keep their thoughts to themselves.

Inappropriate comment

Man, I'd be upset too! So inappropriate for a supervisor to say... If it was me I couldn't let it go without speaking up & letting my boss know it upset me.
