An Ontario mother dining out with two of her children was approached by a waitress who was their former foster mother and aspiring adopter. A later post discloses that the waitress is the wife of a policeman.
Ralxa Begooshka I took my two youngest out to eat at one of our favourite restaurants this evening. A few minutes after our main course was delivered, by a waitress who recognized us from a previous visit (but wasn't our waitress tonight, just helping out), a woman came up to our table and asked if she could sit down. I had no clue who she was, but wasn't sure if it was the waitress who had just delivered our food. She went on to say, "It's okay. I work here." So I said okay. I figured maybe she was going to do a customer satisfaction survey or something. She started talking to my 6 year old and I, asking polite, but somewhat personal questions about his school/daycare and made a comment asking if it was the same one as before and what I do for a living and how I am and after a few minutes I was like she's acting like she really knows who we are and I have no clue who she is. So I asked, "Are you the one who served us our food?" She said, "No. I got off about 15 minutes ago." So I'm like, "I'm sorry, but do we know you?" She said, "I'm (her name)." I still didn't really recognize her, but she went on to point to my boys and say, "They used to live with me." Suddenly, I'm like WTF!?! On the inside of course. I calmly said, "I thought you were a teacher?" She said, "Oh I am. I just do this as well." I've been fighting to sever the relationship between my kids who are still in care and this woman and she has the nerve to come up to us? This woman started calling my baby a different name, she walked around telling people she was in the process of adopting my children as soon as they were taken from me!!! So now I am going to have to avoid the restaurant. There are others in the city where we live, but this is the one near us, when they live total opposite end of town, another reason why I had no idea who she was. I also only met the woman a couple of times and I think she has dyed her hair since then as well. Nothing I can really do about it. Just needed to vent and figured this was a good place to do it...
