Doubly Cause For Pregnant Pause

, , , | Right | September 10, 2021

Due to a shoulder injury, I am not supposed to lift anything over twenty-five pounds. A customer brings in some loose change to be counted. One of the coin bags in our machine fills up, so I ask a coworker to help me lift it off the machine, as those bags are a lot more than twenty-five pounds. She does so.

I’m wearing a blouse, dress pants, and heels, while my coworker is in a dress and flats. Both of us are a normal weight for our respective heights.

Me: “Thanks, [Coworker]!”

Coworker: “No problem. Those bags are a beast even when you don’t have a lifting restriction.”

Customer: “Oh, a lifting restriction? I’m so sorry to make you move things.”

Me: “That’s okay. If I have help, my doctor won’t get on my case.”

Customer: “How far along are you?”

Me: “Say what?”

Customer: “When are you due?”

Me: *Pauses* “Due?”

The customer looks at me like I’m an idiot.

Customer: “When will the baby arrive, dear? You’re obviously expecting. I can tell with that shirt. And no one has a lifting restriction if they’re not pregnant.”

Me: “Ma’am, I injured my shoulder. I’m not pregnant.”

The customer blushes.

Customer: “Oh, goodness. I’m so sorry!”

She turns to my coworker.

Customer: “You, then. You’re the one expecting! I can tell with that dress!”

Coworker: “I’m not pregnant, either.”

The customer turns an even brighter shade of red. I count out her cash and she runs out the door. My coworker and I stare at each other.

Coworker: “Did that just happen?”

Me: “I’m burning this shirt.”
