Weirdest Advice Ever

Over the years, I have received a lot of advice on how to get pregnant. But yesterday, I think I received the most strange advice ever.

I was helping some customers in my office. While I was doing entering stuff into the computer, they noticed the pictures of my nephews. He asked, "Is that your baby?" I told him no, it was my nephew. This is the conversation that followed.

Him: "Which one is your baby?"

Me: "None of them. I have 5 nephews."

Him: "You don't have any babies! Are you married?"

Me: "Yes, I've been married 14 years."

Him: "14 years and no baby! You need to eat horse meat."

Me: (stammering for a response) "Uh, well, I eat elk meat."

Him: "No, you eat horse meat, you have baby."

Add that to the list of weirdest conversations ever.


  1. Just to be sure. Did that person leave any comment if the horse should be white or black or brown? Perhaps only a specific colour of the horse helps.

    Stupid people. I had many weird infertility conversations during the last 12 years. But you win :)

  2. OH MY GOSH! You should put up a sign or where a t-shirt saying you prefer monetary tips, they can keep all others to themselves. Geez!

  3. As Klara said ... you win!

  4. Interesting.

    I'm not speechless very often, but right now I've got nothing. Horse meat? Seriously? Throw in some rainbows and glitter for good measure.
