Yes, I already know I look tired

Some days I feel as though I should save the world a little trouble and start every conversation with, "I know I look tired/sleepy/in need of rest/like general poo." And, to everyone that feels the need to tell me this (every time you see me) it is getting harder and harder not to reply with "thank you Captain Obvious!"

As most of you know, I work nights. More specifically, my shifts start at 6pm (although I'm expected to be ready to receive report at 5:45pm) and end at 6am (which on a lucky day means I clock out before 6:45am). So, when you see me out running errands in the middle of the day, take a minute to think about how you would look functioning on 2-3 hrs of sleep. I have come to accept the dark circles under my eyes because I chose to work nights, and I understand it must be hard to look at me, but suck it up! I have never been one to wear make-up because I always considered the extra time it would take, which would cut into my much needed sleep...and I still don't plan to wear it.

I start my 'modified bedrest' next Tuesday, which means no more work. So, people of the world, please hold out for one more week. Hopefully once I am back on a normal daytime schedule, I'll stop being such a horrible sight!

P.S. I think most of the comments must be out of spite due to my rocking baby bump & ginorm rack. Being jealous makes my heart hurt!

Seriously, start saying the Captain Obvious response. People can be so rude...

Mary said...

I honestly don't think they TRY to be rude...but I'm just sick of hearing it EVERYTIME I go anywhere.

Mary Connelly said...

I agree with Danielle, act shocked and reply with your Captain Obvious response!

Now I know where my "extra boobies" went!! I had a reduction in May and LOVE it. No more sore neck and shoulders.

I have a maternity shirt with that grumpy bunny on it (the one that's always making sarcastic comments on teenagers' notebooks) but pregnant and it reads "Do you really want to start with the pregnant lady?"

Wanna borrow it? :)

You work a 12 hour shift?!! Why on Earth do you work there then? Go to a geriatric home and get a nicer 8 hour shift!!

Mary said...

Wendy, there aren't a lot of options where I live...and I commend those that choose to work in a nursing home, but that's just not the kind of nursing I want to do.

Michelle said...

I was also going to suggest the t-shirt idea. lol.

I think it's rude to say something like that. "You look horrible!" How is that nice?

Jen said...

I totally agree, it's all jealousy. :) People are dumb.

I don't know why people think that's an appropriate comment to make to anybody ever. I'm sorry!

Now commenting on how extremely desirable your gigantic boobage is: That's good stuff. ;)

Ah honey...hang in there, it's only just begun ;-) The comments will not stop, they will only come more and more frequently. I still don't understand why everyone thinks if you are pregnant that you want to hear whatever is on their mind. I'm telling you...if everyone was forced to go through pregnancy, then it wouldn't happen anymore...but that's not reality. So, ((((((HUGS)))))) to you and hang in there sweetie. They just don't understand :-)

Isn't it funny how people think they are being kind or honest or something, when in reality they are just being stupid? Whether they are saying you look tired, or touching your belly without asking (or even knowing you). What's up with that?!

You'll always be a hottie and the haters can't take it!! Hugs!

*giggles about your ginorm rack*
