Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

for the record, i really hate stupid questions. whether it's on the internet, or in person. last week, i was in wal-mart with my newborn. a stranger came up to me, looked at my daughter, and said "can you say hello?" then she just stood there waiting for anabelle to start a conversation with her. needless to say, i got irritated very quickly at her idiotic nature, and said, "no, dummy. in case you were unaware, newborns cannot talk! now if you will excuse me, i have grocery shopping to do, so go bother someone else." AAAHHH! i just don't understand some people. i know that she was just trying to be nice, but what on earth was she thinking???

She obviously didn't know how rude you are. Chances are she was just waiting for a smile, not an actual conversation. It may be hard for you to understand, but people really aren't that stupid.
that may be true, but asking a newborn to say hello is a bit ridiculous. and yes, there are people out there that ARE THAT STUPID!!!, in case it may be hard for you to understand, V
