Woman Shamed For Pumping at Work

This Woman Who Was Shamed For Pumping at Work Got the Best Unintentional Revenge EVER

After a hilarious thread about a man's stolen office lunch went viral on Twitter, new mom Ijeoma Oluo took to the platform to share her own "far less exciting experience with workplace lunchtime theft" (debatable — wait until you hear it). Upon returning to work after maternity leave "way back in the day," Ijeoma, New York Times and The Wall Street Journal bestselling author of So You Want to Talk About Race, found herself in an awkward and unfair predicament: her office was not supportive of breastfeeding moms, and her coworkers would complain that she would pump during lunch.

Although the multitweet thread starts off causing any sane person to fume over the horrible conditions and attitudes Ijeoma was exposed to in that office, the new mom was vindicated in a way no one, including her, saw coming.

Enter: Rich, the story's main antagonist.

Moral of the story: don't f*ck with a mom.
