More tact needed

Lillian went up to Mitra, one of her carers at the Queensberry St Child Care Centre.  As related by Mitra later:

“Mitra, do you have babies?”

Mitra: “No, I don’t have any babies.”

“Why don’t you have babies?”

“Well, I never got married, so I don’t have any babies.”  As Mitra says this, you get the feeling that this is not the happiest aspect of her life.

Lillian, pointing to Mitra’s slightly plump midriff: “Are you pregnant?”
