REACTIONS TO SOCIAL NORM VIOLATION#1
Many people stared. An elderly woman shook her head at me. A group of teens said nice clothes and snickered.
Felt very uncomfortable physically and mentally. Extremely embarrassed by people’s looks and comments Never did adjust to wearing clothes that way. I could not wait to turn them back around.

SOCIAL NORM VIOLATION #2
Wore a pregnant belly suit to a restaurant and ordered a beer. Picture from babble.com
Occurred Friday from 7:00pm – 8:15pm at Don Pablo’s Restaurant.
Got seated in the middle of the restaurant. Once the waitress asked what she could get us to drink, I responded with a Miller Lite.
REACTIONS TO SOCIAL NORM VIOLATION#2
Waitress walked over to another waitress and they both looked at me. I am assuming she was asking if she should bring me a beer. The wife at the table next to us was staring at me.
Very nervous even before ordering Extremely uncomfortable Felt like a terrible person and mother Mortified when the waitresses were obviously talking about me....
