Pregnant woman teaches stranger who touched her belly a lesson

omg 22/02/2019

A pregnant woman found herself in an uncomfortable situation while out and about grocery shopping.

The woman was quite pregnant, and admitted on a Reddit thread that her pregnancy had been "absolute hell". She had gone through three devastating miscarriages prior to her current pregnancy and was plagued with nausea and gestational hypertension.

While making one of her rare trips out of the house to grab some groceries, a lady who decided to strike up a conversation with the soon-to-be mum decided to touch her belly without prior consent.

"This lady in her '50s actually reached out and touched my belly out of nowhere and was like 'Awww is it a boy or a girl?'" the mum continued.

In case that wasn't enough to tip her over the edge, she added that the stranger's "hand was positioned like right where my shirt meets my pants, so I could actually feel part of her hand on my bare skin."

The soon-to-be mum decided that instead of scolding the woman, she would take matters into her own hands.

What I did was reach over and grab her boob.

She continued: "Now when I say 'grab', I mean more that I placed my hand on the top of her boob until she pulled away pretty much instantly."

"And she just looked at me with this absolutely aghast face, and I was just like 'not great, huh??' and walked away."

The mum added that her husband thought the woman had it coming, however her own mother was not as impressed. "She ranted to me about how I can't just grab people because I am grouchy. Which... okay, true," she admitted.

Comments poured in, divided over whether what the woman did was right or wrong.

Some thought it was a good way to teach the stranger a lesson, while others thought her response was not necessary. 

"You should've told her (you were uncomfortable) instead of borderline sexually harassing her," one person wrote.
