Breast Story Ever

Last night I popped over to The Pink Clutch's blog and read this HILARIOUS story. Seriously just too funny- had me laughing out loud! And then I was totally reminded of my own experience about a year or two ago. It is entirely possible that I already blogged about this and if I did, sorry for the repeat story. I am too lazy to go back and check.

Setting: Walmart (don't all good "OMG you have to hear this!" stories start with "So I was in Walmart...?!")

Who knows what I was buying, probably something boring like shampoo. I do remember that I had whatever it was in my hand- no cart. I was wearing Lilly capri pants and a polo. Not that it's at all important for this story. I'm just setting the scene... So I look up as I am walking to check out and I see her. A girl who cannot be older than 18 and looks about 15 if you ask me. She is African American which actually is important to the story because you need to note that her skin tone was much darker than my pasty, white, casper-like, impossible to tan skin tone. She is wearing short denim shorts and a men's "wife beater" as a top. Not a white ribbed tank top. No, the super duper thin under-shirt that men wear under dress shirts. (which BTW if you are wondering, gross me out for no particular reason. they just do.) So back to my girl. She was just wearing the wb- no bra. See, I told you skin tone was important. This means I could see all that God gave her. But I didn't have to look hard anyway because she was doing what all mom's do in life, multi-tasking. She was cruising the aisles of Wally World while chatting with her girlfriend and breastfeeding her baby at the same time. So while the wb was covering one breast, the other was out for all the world to see as she was feeding baby.

Now, I actually have no problem with women feeding in public. Babies need to eat and mommas need to run errands and get out of the house. I totally understand. But I do think it is a courtesy for all involved (you, baby, me and Walmart shoppers in this case) if a little discretion is observed. A blanket or a feeding cover could go a long way. Of course, I suppose if your top is see-through and you are bra-less, a little boob in public action is hardly a concern.

What's your "OMG you have to hear this" story ladies? I know we have all had them. Perhaps you were the star of your own story? Let's hear 'em....

One year when we stayed overnight on the convention center floor for the Lilly warehouse sale I saw about 3 moms there with little itty bitty babies. They were nursing them and having them sleep in their strollers all night with a bunch of gabbing preppy women. We couldn't believe it! I am proud to say I missed the sale the years my children were infants. Having your baby spend all night in a convention center is just wrong!!

OMG - what's up with the see-through top? I have seen similar here. I know it's hot in the South, but girl put on a bra.

As for breastfeeding in public, I can't stand it! But maybe I'll change my tune once lil Lima Bean is born. If I do, you know I'll be rocking a stylish hooter hider.

Gaaaaah! Of COURSE it was in a Walmart. (Going to school in Waco, where there's not a whole lot to do, I completely understand that the best stories begin with "So I was in Walmart...!")

I was in WalMart last summer and saw a woman put her child in the cart NAKED. He was about 2 years old and 100% bare butt naked.

Thanks for the giggle - loved it!

Your package did arrive this weekend and I totally forget I got it. Tons of company and Little Mister just getting home.

I will be going down after coffee this am and digging in. So excited that I have that to look forward to today!

That is hysterical and disgusting at the same time!

I definitely have a boob story and I'm the star of this tale. We were at my in-law's house and I was in bed (in my pj's). My dog threw up, so I hopped out of the bed to clean it up and lo and behold my boob popped out of my pajama top. In front of my then 16 year old brother in law. Totally embarrassing. I think the most embarrassing part is that he didn't turn away. HE KEPT STARING. And my husband sat there rolling with laughter. Ahhh, good times!! :)

Loved the story. The saddest part is that it didn't shock me. I've come to expect that kind of thing at Wal-Mart. That's half the reason for going. Plus if I get hot I can whip off my own shirt without feeling all alone. There's always someone else flashing more flesh.

You see the craziest things at Walmart. It's a different world.
