So I finally got the courage up to tell my boss (for my part time job in retail) that I'm expecting my second baby. When I told him I asked him if it would be possible to carry a very small bottle (those kids size ones) in my apron pocket. Sipping on water throughout the day is the only way I can drink anything because of the morning sickness. If I try to drink gups in a short period of time it makes me sick. He stared at the wall for a couple of minutes and then told me NO. He said he doesn't want to risk there being a spill at a register when I'm on the register. He told me to try to find another way, like gum or candy, to help me make it through my shifts. Now I kind of understand not wanting to have an accident. But I wasn't asking to hold a cup or anything right at the register, I was asking to keep a bottle with a cap in my pocket. And we allow customers in the store with drinks and food that they bring up to the register with them. Maybe I am just cranky and being a baby about this whole situation. But I'm pissed right now. It will blow over but this morning sickness is pretty bad right now and I'm still willing to work!
