I feel awfull-Preggo Drinkers

-I work in a small bar in my city and last night this grroup of kids came into the bar and I served them. One of the girls that was in this group was preggo ordered a tall bud light and a shot of jack I knew that it was for her bacause i all the kids were over 21 and they all ordered drinks. She looked about 8 mts preggo! I didnt want to serve it to her so i got my manager and told him what was going on and he looks at me and goes "Erica mind your own uterus. Now get back over there and serve her, she is a paying customer." I lost it and continued to tell him how much I was agnest it and he said "IF YOU VALUE YOUR JOB THEN YOU WILL DO WHAT YOUR SUPPOSED TO DO!!!" I felt so bad for this tiny life insise of her that she was poisoning. Doesnt she relise that she is killing her child or that it may come out retarded? I dont care how bad I wanted to fit in I would never ever drink alchol while I was preggo.

  • Is there a sign in the bar that reads; "WE HAVE THE RIGHT TO REFUSE SERVICE"? Any establishment has the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason.

  • I've have been too many bars and seen them refuse service to a pregnant woman. Sorry your boss is wrong.

  • I am a bartender and I ALWAYS refuse to serve pregnant woman. It DISGUSTS me that they would even ask. Your boss is a moron.

  • Local bars here have that sign stating that they have the right to refuse service, to anyone at any time or something like that! Hell it's been so long since I looked at it. I agree with you, I would not serve her alochol in the least.
    Some people I tell ya, lol.... Sorry Momma you were put in that situation.
