'What size is your ring?'
If someone asked you that question, what would you assume they were asking?
I got asked that today by a (notoriously bitchy) co-worker, who's insanely jealous of anyone who's younger than she is (she's 36) who gets engaged or married before she does. (She's been with her 19-year-old BF for two years, from the day he turned 18 on).
So I kind of looked at her and was like, "Uhm....6.5?" Because I assumed she was asking what my ring size is. Which is still an odd question, but whatever.
Then she says, "No, no, I mean, how big is your stone? How many carats?"
I said, "Oh, it's a whole lot of none of your damn business, thanks!"
One of my co-workers, who hates her even more than I do, said, "It's bigger than yours, because you don't have one yet, and you're jealous."
We work in news, and that statement managed to silence the whole room.
