(Not Kate Middleton’s) Baby News! Hero Business Offers Preggo Employee Bigger Puke Bins, For Freedom!

by Rich Abdill

"You mean I get MY OWN BIN?!"We have news! Pregnancy news! Unfortunately, it is not about Kate Middleton, whom we have never met, but would like to, because WOWIE.

No, no. Listen up, this one is not about royal babies, this one is about America the land of the fucking free, where we do not have duchesses, we have pregnant call center employees who are trying to shirk their work by being pregnant. Good thing her company was free to treat her like a piece of crap, then fire her for having morning sickness. To the company’s credit though, they did try to accommodate her. From Courthouse News:

“On one occasion, defendant’s manager told plaintiff that she would obtain a larger trash can for plaintiff so that she could take care of vomiting without having to visit the bathroom or leave her seat,” the complaint states.

Well, that was kind of them. When confronted with adversity, the heroic American Business Owner resorts to “bigger puke buckets,” because He is resourcesful and doesn’t actually have to do anything.

If she was so sick, couldn’t she take some leave, or something?

She says National Processing harassed throughout her pregnancy, including delaying paperwork for taking leave under the Family Medical Leave Act writing her up for frequent bathroom visits due to morning sickness.

Ah, the old “frequent bathroom visits by a pregnant lady” schtick. Just trying to get out of work, probably, by pretending to puke. Did the company catch on?

“On another occasion, defendant’s manager told plaintiff that defendant did not ‘pay [her] to pee,’ objecting to plaintiff’s necessity to use the bathroom when plaintiff experienced nausea or dizziness due to her pregnancy conditions. Defendant’s manager claimed to plaintiff it was not ‘fair to other employees’ for plaintiff to take excessive bathroom breaks.["]

Yes, when a pregnant woman is ill and has to come to work and then does not magically get better, it’s unfair to everyone but her. What, did you think we were in some horrible socialist country that gives workers a minimum of 24 weeks of maternity leave? We aren’t a bleeding-heart nanny-state, you hippy! That’s Iran. We here in the greatest country in the visible universe don’t have maternity leave! We’re holding down the fort with Swaziland and Papua New Guinea as the last countries ever to not have any, because regulation kills jobs. If you don’t want to need time off, don’t have sex! And if you don’t want employers to base hiring decisions on whether you’re of child-bearing age, don’t be a woman. [Courthouse News]

"Hello, National Processing. How may I *rowlf* help you today?"

Lionel[redacted]Esq December 3, 2012 at 2:34 pm

“On one occasion, defendant’s manager told plaintiff that she would obtain a larger trash can for plaintiff so that she could take care of vomiting without having to visit the bathroom or leave her seat,” the complaint states.

See, Romney and the Republicans are right, we don't need any sticking regulations. The market will provide!

actor212 December 3, 2012 at 2:34 pm

Yes, no doubt the co-workers sitting on either side of her would easily have been able to contain the gag reflex, especially after a quick lunch of Chinese food.

BlueMonkeh December 3, 2012 at 2:34 pm

Oh jeezus this sucks.

Lionel[redacted]Esq December 3, 2012 at 2:34 pm

“On another occasion, defendant’s manager told plaintiff that defendant did not ‘pay [her] to pee,’

Senator David Vitter, on the other hand…..

Mumbletypeg December 3, 2012 at 2:34 pm

I'd sick the demon-spawning, sandwich-craving Mother from Hell on them, personally, to get my point across.

Goonemeritus December 3, 2012 at 2:35 pm

I just walk the few steps over to the closest office occupied by a right-winger and I puke in one of their desk drawers.

BaldarTFlagass December 3, 2012 at 2:49 pm

But what if they aren't sitting in their office?

actor212 December 3, 2012 at 3:00 pm

Coat pocket.

You don't have cats, do you?

JustPixelz December 3, 2012 at 2:35 pm

Obviously her employer prefers women get abortions rather than cope with the burden of pregnancy in the workplace.

Your move right to lifers…

After the blessed event, this generous job-creator will magnanimously provide permission for in-cubicle breast pumping!

actor212 December 3, 2012 at 2:37 pm

And charge admission to the male employees

PROFIT!

boobookitteh December 3, 2012 at 2:36 pm

I'll bet you $10,000 that these people are 'pro-life'

Sparky December 3, 2012 at 3:03 pm

That might be your first guess, but the villain sounds like a garden-variety misogynistic dick to me.

JustPixelz December 3, 2012 at 2:36 pm

Ironically, she works at the Abortionplex™.

Barbara_ December 3, 2012 at 2:37 pm

I know exactly how she feels with her morning sickness. I am quite sick of mornings myself.

Abernathy December 3, 2012 at 3:05 pm

Afternoons & evenings aren't winning any prizes either.

JustPixelz December 3, 2012 at 3:16 pm

That's why I support Afternoon Saving Time: Every morning move the clocks back to 8:00 after you get to work. In the afternoon move the clocks ahead an hour or two or whatever to make it 5:00.

Poindexter718 December 3, 2012 at 2:38 pm

That is some wicked morning sickness if the existing trashcan was too small …

Swampgas_Man December 4, 2012 at 7:21 pm

Worse, it was wicker.

Oh, right, union thugs and all that crap.

Also, National Processing is centrally located in Overland Park, Kansas in case any of you have any left over … ahem, votes to bestow.

Esteev December 3, 2012 at 3:39 pm

I too have a Sex Pistols tribute band: The Fucking Guns

kissawookiee December 3, 2012 at 2:38 pm

Nikki Haley can relate. Do you even *know* how many giant puke buckets it takes to get an entire state workforce through a day of answering calls with "It's a great day in South Carolina!" ???

skoalrebel December 3, 2012 at 2:38 pm

It's a tough climate for us job creators. [spit!] As a small business man trying to run a meth lab, I find myself constantly being hassled by regulators. [spit!] I may just "go Galt" for the next four years and let society try to carry on without my job creating efforts. [spit!] See how you'd like that, libtards!

edgydrifter December 3, 2012 at 2:39 pm

Let's have a standing slow clap for National Processing of America, for achieving the seemingly impossible–squeezing the last milligram of dignity from a debt collector's life.

Oblios_Cap December 3, 2012 at 2:45 pm

I never thought that it could be done.

There's fair, and then there's fair. They seem to be paying attention to the wrong kind.

To be fair, the supervisor's shoes (now ruined) cost more than the plaintiff earns in a month…

If they had been really serious about accomodating her, they'd have replaced her Aeron chair with a toilet, or put a phone connection in the ladies' crapper.

HogeyeGrex December 3, 2012 at 2:58 pm

Hell, a bluetooth headset, even.

That'd be a fun call. "National Pro*hhuuuuuaaaanhhhnhhh*cessing of Ameri*hhgggghloooaahhhghghghgh*ca…"

Callyson December 3, 2012 at 2:46 pm

And was that genius also going to provide nose plugs for the poor saps who had to sit next to her?

BaldarTFlagass December 3, 2012 at 2:53 pm

Yeah, the popcorn effect would certainly be operative if I were around.

bikerlaureate December 3, 2012 at 4:51 pm

It wouldn't be fair to the employees directly adjacent to her if the smell didn't waft throughout the room.

At this special time of the year, let's all take just a moment out of our busy lives and be grateful for the Internet, which makes it so easy to gather together all the ugliness that the world has to offer.

BlueStateLibel December 3, 2012 at 2:49 pm

And yet Ross Douthat (not going to link to that asshat) implores all you women to have more babies! Because it's so easy economically and think of the wage slaves of the future. Anyway, I hope this woman has a fantastic lawyer.

kyeshinka December 3, 2012 at 2:52 pm

Instead of getting pregnant, which I'm SURE was done by having SEX, why couldn't this hippy liberal layabout 47%er simply inherit her daddy's real estate business and spend her free time pressuring other nations to preserve exclusive golf courses without girly windmills blocking the views? That's what Real Americans do.

emmelemm December 3, 2012 at 3:01 pm

which I'm SURE was done by having SEX

BigSkullF*ckingDog December 3, 2012 at 2:53 pm

They should have just fired her so that she could experience the joys of being a stay at home mom.

betweenstations December 3, 2012 at 2:53 pm

Heartwarming true story:
When I was in middle school, after doing 20 burpees and running a mile, I told PE instructor goon I was going to puke. She says, of course: NO YOU AREN'T. Then I did. On her shoes.

They tried to give me detention.

This lady should have horked on her supervisor. Twice.

Monsieur_Grumpe December 3, 2012 at 2:54 pm

National Processing has a spiffy web-site and they are an equal opportunity employer dedicated to building a diversified workforce! Who knew?

Hey, the employer had to give her permission to get pregnant, right? How can he complain about it later?

Oblios_Cap December 3, 2012 at 2:54 pm

Better to err on the side of being fair to her co-workers than being fair to the preggers filly.

Rich, I think you missed a doozy here:

Roller claims she was also reprimanded for wearing special shoes because her feet were swollen, and she was demoted and refused a transfer due to her pregnancy.

So her *shoes* got her in trouble? Her shoes???

Shoes for industry! Shoes for the deaf! Remember….never forget your shoes!

Those were the cruel shoes.

Now I'm a bit of an expert on this subject, (unfortunately).
Hyperemesis, (ridiculous amount of throwing up while pregnant), two times, people!!
There is a lot of ignorance and stupidity out there.
Examples:
"You're just doing this for the attention." (I can think of more fun ways to get attention.)
"I never LET myself get sick." (Bitch!)

Poor woman.

emmelemm December 3, 2012 at 3:14 pm

Wow. That is some straight-up fuckery. Other people suck.

SoBeach December 3, 2012 at 3:18 pm

I've woked with plenty of preggers women and only once did I ever suspect one of them was milking her condition for extra breaks and stuff. But that was because she was. That one always milked everything for extra breaks and sympathy and to get out of work. All the others just tried to get their stuff done.

DustyBowlBlues December 3, 2012 at 8:19 pm

I didn't have morning sickness (I kept all those 40 lbs worth of calories in my rapidly expanding fat layer–well, layers) but I couldn't bear looking at raw meat. The smell revolted me and made me throw up. The sight of it, too. I can't remember what I fed the family during those months, but I came up with something.

Holding onto a strap on the bus (the only people who ever got up for me were women of child-bearing age. Think of that) and thinking about what to make for dinner and suddenly thinking of that smell and being nauseous (and probably needing to pee again). Good times! Who the hell gets pregnant for the simple joy of taking a few extra potty breaks? A fucking masochist?

DemmeFatale December 3, 2012 at 11:00 pm

Coffee was revolting to me, but the day after I had her, I downed a cup.
I was sick for 9 mos.
I lost 20 pounds in 2 weeks, (but gained it all back).
How did we survive?

BaldarTFlagass December 3, 2012 at 3:09 pm

And when she gives birth, she can just pop the kid out into the bucket and take it home when her shift is over.

To paraphrase Dubya (when he spoke to that woman who was working three jobs just to stay above water), larger puke buckets are uniquely American! *grin*

Is it me, or are more Republican voters beginning to figure out that Free Markets ™ and endless blowjobs for Job Kreators don't necessarily (read: ever) build a heaven on Earth? A guy can dream, right?

emmelemm December 3, 2012 at 3:15 pm

Wrong. It builds heaven on Earth for rich Republicans. So, for them, there is no problem.

Pap Finn December 3, 2012 at 3:21 pm

Hmm…yeah, I forgot for a moment that middle-class conservatism is mostly just a primitive bootlicking reflex. They'll always believe that jacking off the Alphas will get them more bananas in the long run…

SoBeach December 3, 2012 at 3:23 pm

The job creator myth is only one reason people vote republican. Even if republican voters figure out it's a myth they've still got the messcan, blah, and poor people hating reasons to vote republican. And Jesus.

actor212 December 3, 2012 at 3:13 pm

I don't know what the problem is. I never puke when I'm pregnant.

I've never been pregnant when I've puked.

This is possibly the least accommodeating policy for and attitude toward working women I have ever heard about.

BZ1 December 3, 2012 at 3:30 pm

Perhaps installing pay toilets would work.

Rebootably_Joe December 3, 2012 at 3:41 pm

Also, I'm told that babbies frequently set up camp directly on top of the bladder, so even the non-pukey prego's often need to make frequent bathroom trips anyway.

Oh well, I'm sure the extra-large puke bucket they offered the lady would double as a prefectly serviceable chamberpot.

Rebootably_Joe, Office Innovator.

Redhead December 3, 2012 at 3:42 pm

So let me get this straight. If I get raped, it's God's will and my fault, if I get pregnant from the rape it's God's will and means I really enjoyed the rape and it wasn't REAL rape, and if I then choose not to get an abortion (or can't, because the closest clinic is five hours away and I have to go get an ultrasound wand shoved up my hooha three times and then sit in timeout before I can actually get it) my boss can fire me for being so horribly lazy that I try to make it to the bathroom every time I puke… But I'm somehow sure it's not God's will that I get ANY kind of financial assistance at that point, after being fired.

fuflans December 3, 2012 at 5:22 pm

This provides a nice counterbalance to Douthat's latest plea, More Babies, Please, wherein he decries our "decadent" choice to have fewer or no children. If only the women of America were better people who weren't quite so selfish with their wombs and their desire not to lose their jobs and not puke in front of their coworkers. http://www.nytimes.com/2012/12/02/opinion/sunday/…?

glasspusher December 3, 2012 at 6:14 pm

What a fuckwit. Having less (or no)kids is by far the most responsible thing one could do these days…

jello_mold December 3, 2012 at 9:51 pm

Won't these tools make up their fucking minds? Having babies is conspicuous consumption for Douthat's class – wasn't having MORE children a "thing" for them not that long ago? Is that not the definition of decadent?

calliecallie December 3, 2012 at 4:14 pm

"Roller seeks actual and punitive damages for violations of the Pregnancy Discrimination Act, Title VII and the Family Medical Leave Act."

I hope she wins and takes them for enough to fund all her childrens' college educations, at a pricey private school.

Fuck that, yo. This is the land of family values, where we value families. Just not the slutty pregnant sluts required to create them.

DustyBowlBlues December 3, 2012 at 6:11 pm

Truly. Here in the Dust Bowl (seriously–the temp was a high of 79F with 90% of the state in Extreme Drought, officially) one of my okie neighbors would moan and complain and get worked up if this happened to HER (which it can't because Jeebus and Faux Newz) but fuck yeah. What more did this woman want? Her very own bathroom?.
RW knows neither irony nor hypocrisy. Hell, they can't even spell either of them.

jello_mold December 11, 2012 at 4:16 pm

Thanx! someday….

DustyBowlBlues December 3, 2012 at 6:14 pm

How did she get pregnant? She must be a slut. She works at a job for money. What kind of man wants to marry someone as bitchy and domineering as she must be? Just turns off the eligible men, according to something I read.

bobbert December 3, 2012 at 7:59 pm

Well, it's certainly true that puking into a bucket at her desk would disqualify her from being a "shy girl".

HarryButtle December 3, 2012 at 6:32 pm

What happened to the good old days when a pregnant working woman would head out into the fields in the morning, birth a baby into her bushell-basket at noon, and keep right on picking until sundown?

Negropolis December 4, 2012 at 12:25 am

Sounds like the fields of modern California.

docterry6973 December 3, 2012 at 8:48 pm

I think it would be cool to just pee into the extra-large puke bucket too. Or is that just me?

jello_mold December 3, 2012 at 9:43 pm

This employer is way behind the curve. A few years ago I worked in a call center and every employee had their own bucket.

HouseOfTheBlueLights December 3, 2012 at 9:54 pm

Announcing new Wonkette meme: "bigger puke buckets." I'm sure we can find all sorts of appropriate instances to use this.

What's the latest Republican proposal for the fiscal cliff? Bigger puke buckets.
How will Jesse Jackson respond to a federal indictment? Bigger puke buckets.
What do the Christianists demand in science classrooms? you got it.

This could pretty much be the solution to all our woes.

jello_mold December 3, 2012 at 10:10 pm

I keep hearing Mittens saying over and over "….IF you're going to have women in the workforce…" Is it just me?

Negropolis December 4, 2012 at 12:14 am

But, they totally don't want her to have an abortion, 'cause that'd be sinful, right?

Fuck 'em, and in a place where they can't make babies.

greenloner December 4, 2012 at 12:44 am

I kept finding myself wondering why most commenters seem to be assuming the "defendant's manager" was a man. I wouldn't be at all surprised to discover that it was a woman (a loathsome one, to be sure, one bucking for promotion for herself by demonstrating to her bosses just how tough-minded and hard-hearted she is). I hasten to add that I am a woman, and I think such women are relatively rare, thank god, but I have seen some in action.

Negropolis December 4, 2012 at 2:35 am

It really doesn't matter, either way. And, you said it yourself ("I think such women are relatively rare"). Well, if you think/assume this, why are you surprised that others might, too?
