I had to serve a pregnant lady alcohol tonight :(

She came in alone and ordered 3 glasses of wine over a few hours. I called my boss to ask what to do and he said it was illegal to refuse to serve her and I had to. I had to bite my tongue so bad and I kept offering her waters, but she had 3 glasses of red wine and then left.

Gah, that felt shitty.

It didn't feel good knowing it could harm the baby?

Did she say she was pregnant or did you assume based on her shape?

I refused to serve alcohol to a pregnant person before. I didnt feel comfortable with it and swapped tables with a coworker. It sickens me that people are that fucking selfish.

I am sorry. I wouldn't have been able to do that.

You can refuse service to anyone for any reason. I've had it happen and that's what I do. If I don't feel comfortable serving them I just say sorry, no can do.

At least it was just wine and she wasn't ordering shots.

Did she tell you she was pregnant?

You really have no idea what's going on in all reality. While I certainly wouldn't do it maybe it was a one time thing and baby will be fine.
