Even if someone were to insult my child, there is no way in hell I would tell my child the insult. Why would the mom even do that? Oh wait, I know the answer. Because she is stupid enough to mistaken well-rounded for fat. Goodness.

They're in the Philippines. Most of them are Bilingual speaking Tagalog and English. I'm guessing the other mothers English wasn't up on the term well rounded. Also not a lot of blondes there.

Being half Filipino myself, i can agree with this. Though my mother is very understanding of the english language, other members of our family I am usually stuck with explaining the meaning of words when they get butthurt. Btw, Filipinos do love to gossip. Everytime my mom was involved with drama we'd always hear the story, how the other person is a traitor and how we are no longer allowed to be friends with said "traitor" or their family xD

Perhaps the daughter over heard not understanding, "well-rounded". The other woman's daughter told her best friend. That's how I perceived this fml.

As a non native speaker, I had to look it up. Maybe the mother didn't know either for similar reasons. Also it can actually mean fat.

I acknowledge that it may also mean physically round, but conversationally we do not speak that way (at least I have never heard it that way unless it was a joke). And usually you can tell if something was meant to be an insult from the tone. Since OP intended to compliment the daughter, I am sure the tone was not negative. However my main point was what I first touched on. The mother still should not have said this to the daughter. That bothered me most.

Why would you let your child to be friends with a person you think detests him/her? Yes, that woman failed a vocabulary check, but what she heard was super fishy and rude.

What a selfish mother making her child and yours suffer for her ignorance! I hope she whinges to someone about this story and she gets rightly corrected in her mistake. Would love to see the look on her face then!
