Stupid People

We all here stupid advice ALL the time. Remember my boss and her advice to surround myself with the pregos and let their hormones consume me? Well she came back with more advice!

I explained about my upcoming IUI, blah blah blah, to her during my midyear evaluation. You won't believe her advice! A little back ground knowledge, her step daughter has gone through IVF a few times. Now she thinks she understands my pain.

Here we go with the advice!

*Sunny, just think of IUIs like girls who get pregnant on their first try. The only girls who get pregnant on their first try are young teenagers in the back of cars. No one gets pregnant with IUIs. It is just a stepping stone for you. IVF will do the trick. Pay your dues and time and then move onto the real money maker.

What the heck? That is advice and encouragement? I think it is more like the mark of a STUPID PERSON!

Onto the best advice EVER in my life!

I went in for a massage a few weeks ago. I was STRESSED out about everything. I needed relief. When the lady asked why I was there I explained about my stress. She begins to give me advice.

*My niece (I am think her niece had trouble with IF and I am going to hear how she did this and that and now she has a kid.) is pregnant. She lives in Hawaii (pronounced more like Hawaikkeekee). You should go visit Hawaii. When you are there you will see many pregnant bellies near the ocean taking in the beauty of the earth. You will also see dolphins swimming through the ocean showing off their little ones that were just born. The vibes and wholeness of it all will transcend into you and create life. Just go to Hawaii and surround yourself.

I thought I was going to either throw up right there at her feet or laugh my head off. Instead I nodded my head and went inside to my happy peaceful place!

Any good STUPID PEOPLE advice lately?

I'm hoping a plane to Hawaii as we speak to go observe the swelling bellies and baby dolphins.

Jen said...

Okay, that must have been difficult to live through, but it is hilarious to read about. Oh my goodness!

I was in Hawaii a couple of months ago. I didn't see any bellies or baby dolphins. And you know what, I am still not pregnant. Maybe I should have looked for those baby dolphins harder.

Lea Bee said...

ok...that is some of the *stupidest* advice i've ever heard. ever. and i was in middle school once.

LJ said...

Yep, that's pretty much stupid. So sorry. You are a saint for putting up with it all.

laura said...

That is classic. So, so, so bad. So sorry.

My assvice: Hmmm, wait, wait longer, try something new, do something different. Maybe something will work, sometime. Luck, fate, coincidence, who knows. Certainly not me. I'm rooting for you, though.

Meghan said...

Pretty damn stupid. Although a vacay to Hawaii does sound nice...

Read in someone's comments that you were loaded up with follies...how's it going?

M said...

Ack! They said that - really??!!

Carrie said...

This post just confirmas to me that I am right to keep our struggles a srcret.
I could not stand to hear stuff like this. I think you must be such a good person to not blow up.

Karen said...

OHMYGOSH! Tell her your superstar friend Karen got pregnant with triplets with IUI! Okay, admittedly, that's one of the PROBLEMS with IUI, but that's entirely beside the point.

Ooh... you could tell her that Jon and Kate plus 8's kids were all from IUI...

In Search of Morning Sickness said...

I think the throwing up would have been totally legitimate... Just saying sorry for such an unfeeling conversation to have with you! Ugh!

tracey said...

my all time favorite is "you should adopt" just let go sunny, relax, it'll happen. >: )

Somewhat Ordinary said...

Where the hell does your boss come from? She sounds like she's sniffed a little too much sun tan lotion! It is sad I'm imagining this beach at sun set with lots of dolphins and dolphin babies as well as a beach full of pregnant hippies dancing in circles. It is pretty distrubing!

I'm sorry you have to deal with someone like that!

In and Out of Luck said...

Definitely a stupid person - I would have figured that out even if you hadn't said that she can't pronounce Hawaii! I'm sorry you had to deal with that.

SaraS-P said...

No one gets pregnant from IUIs??? I don't think so! How annoying!

Alli said...

that's ridiculous.

Allison said...

Okay - I'm late here, but the vibe of the pregnant bellies and dolphin babies transcending you nearly made me spit out my drink. That is too hilarious.

My MIL said she just knew I was going to get pg since DH is 700 miles away.

Ummmm...if that happened, wouldn't I have a lot of explaining to do?

Curly said...

I know this is an old post. I'm behind on my reading.

I don't get IF advice anymore, but I do get loads of stupid advice about how to make my son grow.

Funny, I've received some of the same advice that you've received: Relax. It will happen. Don't worry. It is God's will. You are tampering with nature. Are you sure this is the right thing....

I appreciate support, not uninformed suggestions.
