Too much alcohol for this little guy

Have you all seen this?

Has your child ever been served something they shouldn’t have been served? Will this make you check your child’s drink from now on?

    No they haven’t. This also happened a few days later at Olive Garden. That family is sueing! Go figure.

      Well wouldn’t you be sueing if that happened to your family?? I know I would be!!! There’s no excuses for that.

    No, this type of thing hasn’t happened to us or anyone we know. However, we’ve always made it a practice to “taste” the kids drinks when we’re out. It brings a few questions to my mind. 1) Didn’t the person preparing the drinks think it was strange for someone to request a margarita in a sippy cup? 2) Wouldn’t the the difference in color and consistency give the person preparing the drinks a clue to the fact that, oh…. I don’t know….. this just doesn’t look like apple juice??????? And then to add in to the situation that no one at the table had ordered alcohol and you really have to wonder.

    You’ve got to love Applebee’s response: the incident was “unacceptable”. Unacceptable? Well, duh!!! No sh*t Sherlock! Here’s my response to Applebee’s mgt. “It’s time to pony up, Bucko! At the very least the cost of the hospital visit and any resulting treatment is YOUR responsibility and you’d better cover it”! They’re soooo fortunate that this toddler didn’t die due to alcohol poisoning! This is nothing less than negligence! I’m not sure if I’d go so far as to sue, but Applebee’s needs to be held responsible.

    Another question: was the liquor license pulled from this location? In my opinion it should be!

    I saw this on another site, and several of the commenters said that in restaurants where they also serve alcohol, the staff sometimes drinks on the job, and they put their drinks in kiddy cups to give the impression it’s a nonalcoholic drink. And then it seems that on rare occasions like this, the server mistakes the cup for an actual child’s drink. If this is the case, it should be easy enough to resolve.

    I tend not to change my ways based on a news story of something happening once or twice out of billions of situations. I will not be tasting my kids’ chocolate milk. However, my eldest gets totally high on her favorite drink – mango milkshake. It’s hilarious. She also gets weird on any sugar-filled drink, including chocolate milk. So she could have received alcohol and I might not have noticed the difference.

    I would sue too. I’m not one for fighting or a sue-happy person but that is 100% unacceptable, and you better believe that I would make them pay! Their liquor license should be revoked or suspended for a long time!
