Can we institute sell-by dates?

This is unbelievable.

And apparently I did not ever fit the criteria for maternity, according to this paragraph:

"She came here with her husband, the couple love each other, she is very slim, blonde and in perfect condition, she fits all the criteria for maternity." (italics are mine)

Don't even get me started.

I was 34 when I was pregnant with my last child, and would be 35 when I gave birth to him. Which meant that I was considered a "mature" maternity patient. My doctor advised me on the complications that htis presented. Each and every time I saw him. As well as my weight. Which was not ideal but I was able to fit through doors. Finally I said, "ok, i get it. I'm old. I'm fat. Let's move on".

Where was this woman when I needed to give him some persepective???

Ah, but Kat, you are blonde, so you obviously fit in as an ideal maternity candidate, barring the other strikes against you.

Ah! That is true. Nothing that a bottle of peroxide can't fix... :)
