Disgusting daycare worker pours hot sauce on toddler's food just to see him cry
When you drop your kid off at a daycare center, you're trusting that your little one is going to be in good hands. Right? Well this horrifying story would definitely have any parent thinking twice. Rosie Hicks, a former daycare worker in Tulsa, Oklahoma was recently sentenced to eight months in jail after pouring HOT habanero sauce (the hottest hot sauce there is!) on a 13-month-old boy's food ... for her entertainment.
According to court documents, Hicks asked Tracy Owens, another former daycare worker, to head to the nearest grocery store and buy a bottle of habanero sauce. Hicks then poured the sauce on a plate of green beans and served it to the toddler. And just when you thought this CRAZY woman couldn't get any crueler, she started to laugh as the poor child cried in pain. Ugh. Could you believe she didn't even give him water afterwards to sooth his burning mouth? What kind of human being does that?
It's undeniable that Hicks and Owen's actions were not just incredibly irresponsible but sick! I'm a huge hot sauce lover. I pour it on everything from sancho to arroz con pollo, and even in my empandas. And just a few drops are enough to leave my tongue burning. Imagine this effect on a child?
Police started investigating after other workers at the center reported the alleged crime, which was caught on surveillance video. Owens claims that she only bought the bottle at Hick's request and isn't sure why she even went along with it. But Hicks admitted that she knew it was wrong but did it because of all the stress she was under at work. The two daycare workers have been charged with child abuse.
This is absolutely unforgivable. If you don't like your job then QUIT! How dare you take your problems out on a poor little toddler--and then stand there and laugh while he's in pain and agony. I'm absolutely disgusted by these two women and I'm glad they're paying for their terrible actions.
