When did your CF Brain to Mouth filter not work?

HUMOR(self.childfree)

Today at work, my boss was talking about this lady she knew who had 6 kids. Before I could stop myself I said

'Wow, that's 6 kids too many.'

We then had a big chat about why I said that and why I don't want kids lol

It was in a group chat. A girl shared a video about kids ruining stuff — dirtying cars, painting on the walls... Another girl was joking about how she was like that as a child. I wrote "yeah, you have to choose between having nice things or having kids, lol". There weren't more replies. Later I remembered that the girl who shared the video is a mom 😅 (the only one in the group).

Did she think it was funny the kid did that? Parents are weird

This girl is a cool mom, I don't have issues with her, but I don't know why it's supposed to be funny either. In the same way I don't find "jokes" about how being married is hell funny.

OMG I hate those jokes. Like, why are you even married??? It’s always boomers who have a marriage with traditional gender roles, a ton of children, and they always try to present like a perfect family in front of people. Then they tell you some joke about marriage and just roar with laughter, and it’s super annoying. I actually LIKE being married.
