Sadly, Remi, breeders will take your second one as a compliment.
That's actually so depressing I can't even begin to fathom it. The fact that there are people out there who really want their greatest achievement to be "failing to use birth control" makes my spleen* cry in infinite sadness. It also hurts my sanity. It's like summoning the Old Ones, I get the feeling that if I tried to understand I'd be left quite insane.
*I thought at first that my heart was crying but then I realized that it was coming from lower in my torso and my heart stopped caring about these people years ago, so it must have been my spleen. It was always over-emotional.

Relative: "Do you guys still not want to have kids?" DH: "We've been over this already. We're never having kids." Relative: "Your relative so-and-so wasn't going to have kids either, but then he decided to have one." Me: "Well, we all make mistakes."

My mom tries that on me. "I never wanted kids, then I had you and your brother!" We were both accidents, she would have never had kids by choice. How is that saying anything besides "be more careful with birth control!"?
Background: I'm really short, and I'm left-handed.
Bingoer: blah, blah, must have babbies nao! Me: (trying to be polite) Oh, I am not really a baby person. (tries to switch topic to anything else) Bingoer: Oh, I bet if you spent more time around my baby, it'll make you want to have one. You just need to spend more time around babies and parents and you will surely become a baby person. Me: I've spent most of my life around tall right-handers, and yet I'm still short and left-handed.
