Chinchillazilla: ISubmittedThisYesterdayWithAMuchFunnierHeadline: So having my daughters help carry the groceries to the car could get me two years in the hole if I bought a bottle of wine?Right before I turned 21 (I mean, maybe a week before), I was helping my mom pick out booze for a party. The guy at the liquor store snapped at her for letting me carry a bottle to the register. He said I was legally not allowed to even handle a sealed bottle.
MileHigh: Alcohol laws in this country are complete stupid...a case in point:CSBI had just turned 21 a few months prior and a group of us were going to drive down from where we lived in Vermont down to Boston to catch a BoSox game. I was the only one of the group that was over the age of 21 at the time, so I was looking forward to being able to drink at Fenway and laugh at my friends because I was able to enjoy a nice cold beer during the game while none of them could. We get to Fenway, find our seats, and then I immediately head over to a concession stand to buy my first beer of the day. I of course get carded and proudly hand my ID to the guy behind the counter. He looks at it and says sorry but he can't serve me and points to a sign behind that stand that reads if you have an out of state ID, you have to be 25 to buy alcohol in Massachusetts. I was pissed and my friends are the ones that had the laugh at my expense instead./CSB//was many, many moons ago, dunno if the law is still that way or not
abhorrent1: downstairs: ShawnDoc: Don't most states allow a minor to drink alcohol provided they are in the presence of a parent or guardian? Or is that only on personal property?I believe that is on personal property. I'm sure its not every state or city. As well, I assume you have to be the parent or guardian (so you can't let your teenager throw a party with booze for all their friends).At least in Wisconsin if a minor is with their parent, they can drink at restaurants and bars as well. At least I remember hearing that at some point.
Esroc: I'm all for keeping drugs and alcohol away from kids. But why is it that cops are never allowed to, or choose not to, use common sense in these kinds of situations? If I was a cop I'd just tell the guy not to hand his beer to his son again and go about my business. There's bigger fish to fry. Making a big deal out of it just seems like a cop on a power trip getting off on farking up someones day./DNRTFA
