Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.
That saying exists for a reason, my friends!
And here’s another example…at least in my humble opinion.
But don’t make up your mind until you read the whole story this woman shared.
Get started now!
AITA for embarrassing my boss when he asked why I’m not back in my regular work uniform after I just gave birth?
“I just had a baby a couple of months ago, and as you can imagine, the weight doesn’t just magically disappear right away.
I work at a prestigious animal hospital and we have a strict dress code and are all required to wear matching scrubs in a very specific color. I spoke with my practice manager (we’ll call her Nicole) when I became pregnant and told her that unfortunately, they don’t make maternity scrubs in our colors.
She was very understanding and said it wasn’t a big deal. She is also understanding of the fact that I still only fit in my maternity scrubs. Today, however, my co-worker came up to me and said, “Hey, Dr. B (veterinarian/hospital owner) wanted me to ask you on his behalf why you aren’t wearing your uniform within our dress code.”
My co-worker knows the reason why, but the doctor kind of forced her to be his little messenger anyways. I could tell she was embarrassed to ask me. I think it’s pretty obvious considering I still look like I’m pregnant.
I stepped into the hallway and confronted Dr. B and said, “In case you’re wondering why I’m not dressed like everyone else, it’s because I’m still too fat to squeeze into regular clothes.” I was partially joking but also annoyed that I even had to explain myself. He seemed really embarrassed and caught off guard that I confronted him face to face about it.
But also, I was really embarrassed that he felt the need to bring up something with an obvious explanation and then drag my co-worker into it as well. Not only that, but my practice manager (Nicole) is well aware that I can only fit in maternity clothing still.
AITA for the way I handled this situation? Should I had just kept to myself and not say anything to him?”
Here’s what folks on Reddit had to say about this.
This reader said that maybe now he’ll mind his own business.
And another Reddit said they respect how the woman handled this situation.
This individual said that this guy doesn’t seem to have a whole lot of common sense…
