 I saw this on the Today show and found it interesting. They said that a woman was morelikely to buy underage teenagers alcohol. This surprised me because they placed two actors (they were over 21) in front of a store and asked men to buy them beer, they all refused but the woman were the ones to agree (not all). I was shocked that it was mainly the woman doing it.

Does it surprise you that its mainly woman and not the men?

What would you do if you found out that Jane Doe bought your underage teen beer?

Would you/have you ever bought for a underage teen?

Hmmm, I have never and would never buy for underage people. Now, when I was younger, a long time ago, we were the ones doing the asking and we always asked men and they happily bought for us.

 I would not and have not... If I ever got a hold of Jane Doe I'd beat her to a pulp... Probably not leterally, but I'd definately let her know how wrong it is. And I go to the store owner and police with the information. Of course, being random people, there really is no way of proving anything in these cases...

I would be so pissed if someone bought my kid beer or boos but that would be calling the kettle black because I drank when I was 19 and 20 ( the joys of living near canada and going to the bars there and drinking) unforntly I came across the border many times drunk  my friends always drove so I got lucky..... My husband then my bday would buy alchol or have alchol at his house though....   now as a adult I would not buy for someone that is underage

Not teens. I bought dh and his college roommates alcohol all the time when I was 21 and they were all 20. That was it for me. They loved it when I turned 21, lol. Dh turned 20 a month after I turned 21.

 I wouldnt either and I cant say anything as I was a teenager in germany where it was legal for us to drink. BUT that dont give me the right to buy for other peoples kids.

 I could see men, the macho beings they are, saying suck it up kid and wait until your 21 while some women will just cave to a pretty boy face.

Does it surprise you that its mainly woman and not the men? Nope, not at all.

What would you do if you found out that Jane Doe bought your underage teen beer? Jane Doe would be Jane Dead by my bare hands!

Would you/have you ever bought for a underage teen?  No, I was carded until I was 30 so I probably didn't look old enough to buy it myself so no one asked.

I would never buy for underaged teenagers hanging out in front of a store. I have made my dd a margarita when she was 20 and seen my youngest who is now 20 drink a beer that my dh bought.

I was not happy to hear that my son would call his sister to buy beer for him and his friends. I figure they would find a way to drink if they wanted to, but I didn't want her involved in something like that for kids we don't know.
