Daughter Dresses As Waiter To Surprise Mom After 18 Months Away

A mom was left stunned after her daughter she hadn’t seen for 18 months surprised her by dressing as their waiter at a local pub. Emma Nugent thought she was having a normal day at a pub in Rawdon, Leeds, but what she didn’t know was that her daughter Sophie was around the corner preparing to surprise her. Due to work and COVID-19, Sophie hadn’t been home for 18 months as she had been living with her husband in Doha, Qatar, where she works as a Spanish teacher. On Friday 16th July, sister Sasha, mom Emma and stepdad Paul were at the Princess Pub in Rawdon whilst unknown to her mom, Sophie was hidden outside. After the waiter took the family's order, Sasha excused herself from the table and secretly asked for the waiter to let her sister bring the drinks over to the table which she kindly agreed to. When Sasha sat back down with her mom, she texted Sophie to give her the signal. Sophie appeared from around the corner with their drinks dressed in the style of a waiter whilst also wearing sunglasses and a mask. As soon as Emma looks at who she thinks is their waiter, her mom's face dropped in complete shock.
