Some doctors recommend pregnant women to lower their caffeine intake, and many women know that. However, that absolutely doesn’t mean that you need to stop taking in caffeine entirely (unless your doctor tells you to, of course), and regardless of what the specific pregnancy precautions are, it’s no one else’s business besides the woman and her doctor.
This Starbucks barista learned this the hard way after he tried to tell a pregnant customer at his shop that she shouldn’t get a macchiato because “it’s bad for the baby”.
Tiffany Stevenson shared her story on Twitter, and it will make you boil:
People, naturally, were blown away by the barista and how he still has his job after speaking to a customer this way, or the fact that a man thought that he knew better about the woman’s body than herself.
