No Shoes, No Service! Burger King 86s Baby

The baby can't even walk yet, but she's already been kicked out of a fast food restaurant for not wearing shoes.

"No shoes, no shirt, no service!" That's what the mother of 6-month-old Kaylin Frederich was told by the manager of her local St. Louis, Missouri, Burger King when she tried to order a Whopper.

Local FOX affiliate KTVI reports that Kaylin, her mom, Jennifer, and Jennifer's mother were booted from the restaurant due to "health concerns." The infant, Jennifer says, is too young to even crawl, and her feet are too small for shoes. "Everybody loves baby feet!" she said.

She says when she was standing at the counter ordering, the manager told her, "You can order 'to go' but you're going to have to leave if she doesn't have shoes on.' He said, 'It's against health code.'"


Jennifer said she was with her church youth group on their way to a concert. Her mother went into the establishment first; then she followed with the rest of the group. "The guy was still saying, 'That lady is still here with that baby without shoes,'" Jennifer said. "I just looked at him and I said, 'That's my daughter. She doesn't own shoes. She's only 6 months old' ... she doesn't walk. She's not touching the ground. So there's no reason for her to have shoes on!"

Kaylin's mom said she put socks on the baby's feet to try to comply with the manager's request, but the manager threatened to call the police, so the group ate hurriedly and left. Jennifer says she posted her story on Facebook and had dozens of responses.

Burger King issued a statement saying they were "retraining" its franchisees on the "no shoes, no service" policy.

When I open up your Rss feed it appears to be a ton of junk, is the issue on my part?

Have you considered including some social bookmarking buttons to these sites. At the very least for flickr.
