“If it weren’t for my horse…”

We have another entry in our occasional series of things I can never un-hear. All are spoken by actual humans. Well, perhaps not humans.

Today’s comes from my lunch just now at the farmer’s market across the street (which is a story unto itself). I was enjoying my milkshake while two thirtysomething women and (I presume) their five children were seated at a table next to me. Just as I was finishing up, one of them said:

“I’m finding it really difficult to be environmentally conscious and an on-the-go Mom at the same time.”

Okay, you see, the problem here is that you’ve already HAD children, but in the interest of minimizing the damage you’re causing to the human race I’m going to have to ask you to not have any more.
