I don't know why I am still a bit bothered by this... because I know there is little to no thought put behind the hostess and waitress asking: "smoking or non-smoking?" or "would you like to start off with a margarita today?" It's obvious that these are perfunctory questions, but one might think that perhaps they would not be asked of an obviously pregnant woman. Or, sadly, perhaps it is because there are many pregnant women out there making different choices, and restaurants can not assume what the answers to these questions might be.
