You should have offered her a beer and said, "I was going to say the same about you."

Some people just dont know what's appropriate to say. Just because her idea of a good life is schoolshopping with kids, doesnt mean its the same for the rest of us.

My dude! I'd take your life over hers any day. Apart from the living in Wales thing. Can't fucking pronounce any of the towns' names in the entire country. Never going on vacation there again. I looked like a fool.

Don’t worry about it dude, she is the one that has ruined her life.

Omg, not everyone needs a child to have a complete life. And the ones who feel everyone needs a child need to stop projecting their own wants and needs on others.

I am so deliriously, happily child-free, that I've become kind of militant. The one time I got a comment like that I was so burned that I now preempt their condescension with my own. When some bitch starts telling me "Well, I'm a mom..." or "I have X number of kids" I say "Oh, I'm so sorry!" and when they inevitably stiffen and say, accusingly, "Why?" I look surprised and say "Oh, you wanted kids! Oh. Well that's great then, that's just great! Really!" but sounding very insincere. Funny, I NEVER get that from men. I mean, I've done the "Oh, I'm sorry" when they tell me they have kids, but their reactions only run the gamut of "Yeah." to "It's not so bad."
