Burger King Does Not Like Baby Feet!

Wow--when it comes to "no shoes, no service," Burger King really means it! A mom carrying her six-month old baby was asked to leave Burger King when a manager noticed the baby was not wearing shoes. What the heck?? A baby, in her mother's arms no less??

The mom was nicer than I would have been. She put socks on her baby's feet.

Guess what? The manager was still not satisfied. Nope, he wanted shoes on those sweet baby feet. Period. His way or the highway.

The mom told the manager that her baby did not even own shoes yet--

"I just looked at him and I said, 'that's my daughter. She doesn't own shoes. She's only 6 months old'... she doesn't walk. She's not touching the ground. So there's no reason for her to have shoes on."

You would think the manager would be ok with that. You'd think.

He wasn't. As a matter of fact, he threatened to call the police.

The police???!

The mom ended up leaving, but I wish she had let the guy call the police...while she called the local news station.

Burger King doesn't like baby feet apparently.

She should still call the corporate office. Also let them know you will be contacting the local newspaper and TV Station.
It is a crazy world.

Ya I saw this on the news, so ridiculous. I like your idea of her calling the local news station while he called the police! That would have been priceless.
