Nothing is more annoying than being asked again and again when you want children – especially when you don’t want them.

Aside from being told that when you meet the “right person” you will change your mind.

Or you’re told that if you don’t have children you’ll regret it…we could go on.

One woman took to Reddit to open up about her co-worker doing all of the above, but the story takes a twisted turn when the co-worker reported the Redditor to HR — despite harassing the 40-year-old for being a wanted to be mom.

She wrote: “Hi everyone, I’ll keep this short and sweet. I (40F) do contract work so I move about every 3 months. I am also happily single and never wanted to have children. I am very happy with my life. I can do whatever I want, whenever I want. It’s the bee’s knees.

“Anyway, to the story. I was at work the other day, for the record, I work with a lot of women. The topic of family and children came up and I was asked when I would have children. i never said

“One lady kept bugging me about it saying I would change my mind when I met the right person, having a baby will be so satisfying I would regret it and my personal favorite that I would be selfish because I would not have gotten children.

“I’ve heard all of this before, it’s nothing new, I usually just ignore it. I tried my usual brushing but this one woman was so persistent. And smug. Like she knew me better than I knew myself, and to be honest, that just irritated me.

The woman was irritated that her colleague repeatedly mentioned having children despite trying to end the conversation

“I told her, ‘I’m 40, I think I know best if I want kids or not. And honestly, having a baby sounds like a literal nightmare. It’s not something I ever want and having kids would absolutely ruin my life.”

“After I said she got really mad and told me she doesn’t know how I can hate kids that she has four so I think her life is ruined? I told her no that I’m glad she has a satisfying life and that this is working for her. But this lifestyle doesn’t work for me. Not everyone has to be a mother.

“She stopped talking to me and the other people around said I was too harsh. Also, I heard through rumors that she is filing a complaint with HR.

“Aita? I admit I could have handled the situation with a little more finesse, but it got under my skin. Also, to be honest, I was tired of the conversation.”

People took up the thread to show their support for the original poster and branded the woman who molested them disrespectful.

One wrote: “Let her file the complaint and when she comes up (if that’s the case) explain that your private life is none of her business and want her to take her comments professionally.”

“Not only that, OP should notify HR that she is being harassed about protected statues and would like in writing that she reported it to HR and the names of all witnesses,” raged another.

Someone else jumped to her aid and suggested she file a complaint as well.

They wrote: “Don’t wait for HR to contact you. Contact them and file a complaint against them. You are stronger when you don’t defend yourself.”

One listed reasons why the woman wasn’t wrong: “1) Your body, your life, your choice. 2) she was annoying she : I would also go to HR. 3) You said a baby would ruin your life, that’s the truth. You haven’t said anything about other people’s decisions to have children. 4) She jumps to the conclusion that children don’t want = children hate (my annoyance).”
