The insensitive award of the year goes to...."Car dealership financing lady" who said, "So when you're adopting and it doesn't work out, like, they change their mind or something? It doesn't feel as bad as if you lost a "real" baby right?"
Dude. I must have been in THE BEST MOOD EVER. Because I didn't cry, I didn't even make her feel stupid. And I think I made my husband proud of me.
I replied, "It was excruciating both times, I can't imagine being hurt more by a physical miscarriage. Adoption is not for the faint of heart, or sissies, it is a truly humbling and at times painful experience, and we're not even done yet."
And then she went on to talk about her poor sister in law who wants a "perfect baby" and their entire family hopes they get an ugly baby because SIL is so pretentious.
I must be high on Little Guy, because seriously, I was the most understanding and forgiving human on the planet today. I am amazed that I didn't tear up the contract for our new "family sized Fo.rd Ex,plor-er" and go to the competing che.vy dealer. But I just plan on writing a note to the owner of the dealership letting him know what an imbecile he has working for him. I don't really want to get her fired, I just want to let him know that there are some customer service training opportunities ripe for the picking.
GREAT DAY though. We now have a vehicle that will work with the infant seat and have room for the dog and all of our stuff when we go visit the fam in Oregon. AND, we got to go hang out with our friends and their cuddle bug Jonathan :D He was crabby, but did that stop me from holding and loving? Nope!
