Not Such Good Advice
So, today I was waiting on a nice couple, who after serving their food to, asked when I was due. I used to love this question because it constituted about a 3% increase in my tip, but now I dread it because inevitably it turns into, "When are you going to stop answering my question so I can give you stupid advice?" So, after quickly getting out "seven months" the proud parents, of a four month old, began giving me their sage advice. After hearing the merits of a wet nurse during the first three months (yeah, a wet nurse...because I'm secretly the Queen of England) I asked, "So, are you both just sneaking out for a breakfast while the babysitter has your baby?" And they replied, "NO, OUR BABY IS IN THE CAR." Yes, you read that right...the car. I immediately thought they were kidding and said, "Well, I hope you at least cracked the window." To which they responded, "No, she's fine. She's just sleeping in the car. That's all they do is sleep."
Wet nurse huh? What are you thoughts on baby cruelty and neglect?
