Gross. I admit that I do this in my head with conception dates, but I would NEVER mention it and really wish my brain wasn't interested in it.

I don’t think it’s the weirdest thought to have, just one you should really keep to yourself, particularly in this context. So sounds like you’re appropriately using your filter 😉

I’m so happy to find that it wasn’t just my hormones making me skeeved on this. I hate that stuff like this makes me doubt my credibility and experience as an attorney, like does the client or partner only want to work with me because I make them think of sex?

Maybe they’re just a bit of a schmuck with a lack of filter 🤷🏻‍♀️. I encounter people like this so often that it doesn’t get to me anymore.

Had a stranger try that kind of joke with me once. Long time ago with first baby. I must’ve given him the right look because he came back to me and apologized a few minutes later. Tactless and so hard to deal with from a client or Colleague. Yuck
