There are some things you just don't ask people, like asking a larger person when their baby is due to receive the appropriate angry response of 'I'm not pregnant'.
The same can be said for asking a little child on their first day of school if they are going to miss their mammy. NEVER DO IT!
A KTLA reporter was talking to a pre-kindergarten student on his first day of school, and she just had to go there and ruin his day even before it had begun by bringing up the dreaded question. Shame on you.
It starts off all smiley and happy but quickly descends into a traumatic experience for the poor little boy. Bless him.
