Awesome Restaurant Manager Comps Pregnant Woman's Meal & Leaves a Sweet Note (PHOTO)

Awww! 46

pregnant free mealI'm just gonna come out and say it here: The end of pregnancy. Not the most fun of times. You're huge. You're tired. And finding a comfortable sleeping position is pretty much impossible. So any nice, thoughtful thing someone may do for you during that time is a god send -- especially when it comes from a stranger. And especially when it's in the form of free food. Some extremely kind soul who works at a Red Robin did just this recently. He or she (identity still remains under wraps) comped a very pregnant woman's meal, citing a "manager's promo", writing on the receipt: "MOM 2 BEE GOOD LUC!" How touched would you be if you were on the receiving end of such a sweet act if you were thisclose to giving birth? It isn't every day this kind of thing happens.

For all intents and purposes, people are nice to pregnant women -- especially other moms. But when it comes down to it, the world doesn't stop when you're with-child, and people (read: strangers) don't always go out of their way to be extra kind to pregnant women. (I mean, seriously, how many free meals did you get during your pregnancy?)

I remember being so happy when people would give up their seats for me on the subway during my third trimester -- because guess what? In New York that doesn't happen very often! (I'm looking at you, dude who pretended to be asleep when I looked your way!) And the one time a woman let me cut her while in line for the bathroom, I was eternally grateful, because I really had to pee.

This manager didn't have to do this for this woman. And it won't change her life. But it's incredibly kind and thoughtful that they did. And it probably made any discomfort she was feeling go away -- even if just for a little while.

What was the nicest thing someone did for you while you were pregnant?

I was offered free groceries!!! lol I was 8 months pregnant, and 18 years old. I was walking around the baby section and the lady said "Oh what a cute belly." She ended up getting behind me in the cashier line, and she saw that my boyfriend and I were going to pay with our debit card. She looked at me and said "Let me buy those for you! I know you guys can use the money for other things when the baby arrives." I said no thank you, and she said "Think of it as an early Christmas present." It was only $50 worth of groceries, but it was really nice of her to offer! I declined though, we had so much help from my family, so I figured she could use it to help someone who needed it more than I did.

So sweet!



I was totally spoiled at work throughout my entire pregnancy! I loved it! :)



Its such a short period of time- every woman should be pampered and spoiled to her hearts content, cause it ALL changes once baby's born!

I had just bought my home, was in the middle of renovating it when my husband broke his hand on a friday night and on fathers day (the Sunday after he broke his hand) I discovered I was pregnant. I then found out I was high risk n immediately put on bed rest. I was on disability (pays about 1/4 of what I make, he was on disability (about 1/2 of what he makes). I was scared, lonely, n had moved 45 mins away from our "support system". I came home fro. A dr's appointment to find my house cleaned, food shopping done, laundry done and prepared meals frozen in the freezer. My new neighbors decided to enlist my husband in maling my life as stress free as possible. Might I mention both couples are childless by choice. They have since become our best friends. We have all stuck together for the last 4 years thru thick n thin, including hurricanes irene n sandy....talk about blessings!

My husband, 3 kids, and I went out to eat, and when the waitress brought us our bill she said it had been paid by someone who wanted to remain anonymous. It was very sweet and surprising, but it also made me feel bad, like they thought I was poor or something. I know it was a good gesture, but it really kinda made me feel uncomfortable.
