Readers Reply: The Most Offensive Thing Ever Said To Me While Out With My Kids Was …

A couple of weeks ago I shared a post of the dumbest things people have said to me while out with my kids. I believe that people open their mouths before they think and may not realize that what they are asking is well, inappropriate.

I had started to wonder if there was something about ‘me’ that seemed to encourage people to speak before they think when I am out with my kids. Was it my age? The amount of kids I have with me or what?

Once you all started to chime in with the dumbest things said to you while out with your kids, I started to realize … people just might not realize what they are saying.  Babble’s Facebook page asked our readers to spill the beans and tell us the most offensive thing ever said to you.
