So since I have had the twins, anytime they go out or I call in for a service for them, I get a few stupid questions…I will humor you with some of the conversations…
Me: I am calling to add my twins to my insurance, their Date of birth is xyz
Insurance agent: do they have the same last name?
Me: i told you they were twins
At that point i was like wayment.
Standing in line for passports
Old Dude: OMG are they twins?
Old dude: boys or girls
Me: *thinking they are wearing dresses and headbands- people are taking this gender neutrality sh*t too far*
Me: I have a passport appointment for my twins.
Agent: oh ok, but how can I tell them apart?
Me: *thinking you didnt even look at them to see first* look at their faces.
Me: I need to book an appointment for my twins
Receptionist: do they have the same father?
Me: to the best of my knowledge they do
Random stranger in store
Stranger: OMG twins, are they natural?
Me: OMG is your single child natural?
Stranger: I am sorry
Some Guy I know
Some Guy: it must be hard breastfeeding twins
Me: what is your fascination with my boobs and breastfeeding?
Since having twins I realise some people don’t have filters and many just don’t think before speaking. It has been interesting to say the least but sometimes down right annoying when I have to do official documents etc for them.
How was your week? Hopefully this little post lightens things up for you somewhat.
