Why can't people mind their own business about my kids?

I was at Whole Foods yesterday with Chaya in a sling and Shira and Batya in a double stroller. Some woman asks me if they are twins. "No." I respond truthfully. Is it my fault she is a nosy idiot who doesn't notice a denim pouch? So she says in the snotty voice, "Well, they look the same age." As I was walking away I said, "They are." All totally true. If she had asked nicely, I might have told her about Chaya, but why do I have to explain myself? Why is it everyone's business? And this was in Beverly Hills which is known for people ignoring other people. I get less comments in LA proper then I did there.

Okay, end vent.
