Drunk Babies Are the New Black

It seems like only yesterday that I was writing about a baby that went into an Applebee's as a sweet innocent toddler and came out as a drunk alcoholic 15 month old with addiction issues. Apparently, getting babies drunk is all the rage because it happened again this time at an Olive Garden in Florida. A two and a half year old boy was mistakenly served sangria instead of orange juice and he got all drunk and bleary eyed. The mother said that as they were eating, the waiter came over and whisked the cup away and just told them he had to get them another one. When the nosy mother asked why, the waiter explained the mix up. So wait. This waiter was going to just try to sneak it away without telling them what the fuck happened and try to pass it off as no big deal? He was seriously going to not tell them why he suddenly had to pull the cup away from the thirsty kid? He thought it was okay to not tell the mother that he had accidentally served her child sangria? I really like this waiter, but he could have stuck to his plan and not tell her that they got the baby trashed. He could have just said that he realized the glass was dirty or the orange juice was expired. Of course the worry-wart mom took the baby to the hospital and he is fine. C'mon. It's sangria from The Olive Garden. We all know that shit is mostly fruit punch with a tablespoon of cheap red wine thrown in it. But if The Olive Garden is going to start indiscriminately handing out sangria I may have to rethink my opinion on them.

Now I don't have a baby, but this got me to thinking. I have a plan. I want to wrap my dog up in a Snuggie and take him out to eat with me at Outback Steakhouse. I will order my "baby" a cranberry juice and tell them that he is getting over a urinary tract infection. When they bring his cup to the table, I will dump out the cranberry juice and substitute it with some Cosmo that I will have in my flask. I will then proceed to make a scene. "Oh my God! My baby is drunk! My baby is drunk. The dingo ate my baby! My baby is drunk! Who served a Cosmo to my precious baby? I will sue, I tell you! I will sue!!" At this point the manager will come out and ask me what the problem is. I will show him my baby and tell him that before he was served a Cosmo he was a perfectly fine baby. But now he is slurring his words, his eyes are bloodshot and he is covered in doggie fur. This is clearly the fault of the restaurant who accidentally served him a Cosmo. I will rush my baby to the veterinarian right after I phone 1-800-SUE-THEM to get my case set up. I will settle out of court for a lifetime supply of Bloomin' Onions® and Aussie Cheese Fries.

I don't know what's going out there in the world where servers are getting babies drunk. All I know is I have a shift tonight and if there is a baby within of ten foot radius of my station I am going to force feed it a tequila shot and make it play a round of beer pong with me. Drunk babies are fun!

Your posts are funny. Babies with booze..not. It's a parents duty to inspect everything served to a child. No way would I hand a sippy cup to a kid when it was brought to me by someone I don't know. Yeah, it's shitty business on the restaurants part, but, seriously mom and dad, you didn't even sniff it first? Some servers aren't careful of babies. They've never had a baby, they don't think about the dangers. Hot plates, full beverages, ect. The real responsibility lies with parents.

Two things have seriously impaired my sense of humor here:

1. i am a mom.
2. i don't drink anymore.

Sorry. I swear -- 10 years ago, i would have laughed. I would have!

A few months ago a little boy was served a pina colada with the rum in it at my job. He had to be about 6. They mixed up his virgin with my table's alcoholic one. Guess my restaurant is just better at covering things up.

Here's my drunk story of when I had my first alcoholic drink. A reative of mine snuck it in my Chuck E. Cheese cup when I was 9 years old and I thought I was gonna die because I took a sip. The story is hilarious!

(By the way, I tried to post this on your Facebook page yesterday but the site wouldn't let me..Yes that was me that commented on your post a million times. I was trying to get it to work. Haa!)

I understand concern moms, I really do. But com'on - emergency room? You're right, their sangria maybe went around some little wine eventually. It's not like a kid popped up a bottle of booze or something. I grew up in Europe, and we were getting a sip of EVERYTHING adults were having, to get to use to it. I came out OK... and didn't become alcoholic either. I just sell wine for living :) great blog, congrats!

(Sorry, Bitchy. I *know* i'm like, waaaaay behind, but...)

OMG that Drunk Baby video is *hilarious*! I never thought about it before, but toddlers totally *look* drunk all the time. They're so funny!

Thanks for sharing, Bitchy!
=-)

Funny post! STUPID parents. I agree with DD. I may order the juice and pour it into the sippy cup myself.

I've worked at an olive gardent, and there's literally no way sangria ended up in a kids cup if everyone was doing their job correctly. Sangria is mixed in the glass (it's syrup, box wine, and soda water, surprise!) And orange juice comes out of a bottle that says orange juice" on it. From a separate fridge. Not to mention the non alcoholic drinks are picked up from a separate service bar than the alcohol. So yeah......something insanely fishy and weird is going on with this story....
