Barefoot Baby: Burger King Kicks Out Jennifer Frederich & Baby
A six-month-old barefoot baby and her mom, Jennifer Frederich, were kicked out of a Missouri Burger King because of the no-shoes-no-service rule. I'm not making this up.
The fact that a six-month-old baby can't walk was apparently not taken into consideration, nor was the fact that babies tend not to wear shoes. I've never heard of a mom told to leave over barefoot baby before. Ever.
The Burger King franchise is reaching out to Jennifer Frederich to apologize, but only after they've been ridiculed on US national news.
A Burger King manager threatens to call police on a mom because her baby isn't wearing shoes in the restaurant.
When I was a baby, my parents made sure to dress me in suit, tie and patent-leather shoes whenever we went to a fast-food place. </snark>
At first I thought this story was a joke. Alas, it's not.
