Let me first state that I am very pro-breastfeeding. I think it is natural, and the best way to a happy and healthy child. I'm not going to go into all the benefits, as that isn't what this blog is about.
Tonight I am waiting on a fairly new mother and father. Her child is 3 weeks old, and I understand her need to both bring him, as well as feed him. During the feeding time, she did a good job of being fairly descreet about it while still getting the job done. What I didn't really expect, nor want, was to walk up to the table while she was examining her nipple and complaining to her husband that she is leaking. I approached from behind her, not knowing she was hanging it out. I was going to grab an empty plate from the table, but since she was sitting there fondeling her right nipple for the whole world to see, I decided against it. I understand that it was late at night, and there were few other tables in the store, but that still does not make it the right time nor place to be doing that sort of examination. Then to worsen things, her cheap assed husband left me an $8.00 tip on $60 check after great service, after staying in our store 45 minutes after close, and being the only table in the joint for 30 of those minutes. They pulled away from the store in a Hummer H3 with some nasty ghetto rims/spinners, so it's pretty clear where the money is going. And of course, I got two verbal tips. Verbal tips suck. Leave cash, or as Bender would say, bite my shiny metal ass.
