orbister: FloydA: This.  She set the restaurant up for potential legal consequences.

Even if there were any legal consequence. by taking the matter into her own hands and keeping the restaurant out of it she protected them.


Perhaps you don't understand what the phrase means taking the matter into her own hands. She was an employee of a business, and while conducting her duties at said business, called the police on someone. She doesn't have to be a nationally recognized spokesman of the business for her to be considered acting on behalf of the business.

jtown: jst3p: jtown: Saul T. Balzac: Breast milk would NOT have the same alcohol content as mom's drink would have.  It's much, much diluted.  The mom can have a beer or two and it would have zero effect on the baby.

/DRTFA

And a nursing baby weighs what?  10-20 pounds?  They've got no tolerance for booze.  Half a wine cooler and the kid's passed out with his buddies drawing on his face with sharpies.  Sharpies if he's lucky.

But seriously, a little alcohol goes a long way in a tiny body.

Not that I condone the actions of the mom in TFA (even though her actions are not clear) but you are talking out of your ass. Several people in this thread have commented that doctors commonly advise nursing mothers to drink a beer to help with milk production.

Tell us Saul T. Balzac M.D.,how specifically does one or two beers imbibed by a nursing mother adversely affect a baby? Be specific.

A beer, not drink after drink, jackass.


You said a little alcohol goes a long way in a tiny body. A beer is "a little", tell me what a "long way" it goes.

And as soon as the cops arrested her it vindicated her concerns. She, nor the business will lose a lawsuit over this.

aimtastic: When I was a bartender at a chain restaurant and wanted to not serve booze to a 8+ month pregnant woman, my boss told me we could only refuse service to someone who is visibly intoxicated and any other reason could leave the restaurant at risk for a discrimination lawsuit.


This is pretty sick, you would think the woman could be arrested for child endangerment - but I guess this is another argument because the "fetus" isn't born yet blah blah - but she is purposely putting a soon to be child at risk for serious birth defects. I just don't understand why if you call the cops they won't do anything about it.

/seen a woman drop dead drunk and chain smoking while at least 7+ months pregnant, I really don't even want to know what birth defects that kid faces - much as I wish he would be ok I seriously doubt it. Sad part is the bar continued to serve her because it was "ladies" night - and while she was obviously smashed drunk, the bartender kept serving anyway

Breast milk isn't produced by the body on the spot, it's slowly made over the course of hours and stored in the mammary glands. It works much like your bladder. It slowly fills up until it gets full and you feel the urge to pee. If you were to drink a glass of water while you're pissing that water isn't going to immediately start coming out your dick.

For all anybody knows she may have had every intention of pumping and dumping her breast milk the next time she filled up.

Tunacrab: What does "drink after drink" mean? Two? Ten?


It's basically a Weasel Word statement. Whether intentional or not, it is statement that lays a thought in your head without stating a fact. Add to that the "Me being a mom...." declaration, and reasoned discussion is untenable.

She should have alerted the management. That is what she should have done.
Let mgmt then deal with actual issue including calls to police. That is what they do.

The restaurant was absolutely correct in firing her over this.

Also, isn't that a judgement call?

"your honor, it was my opinion that the pregnant woman ordering a drink was already intoxicated. Serving her would put many parties at risk. "

No one can prove that was not your opinion as a bartender.

The same amount of alcohol that makes it into the moms bloodstream makes it into the breast milk.
It is pretty much instant. A mother should wait at least two hours after drinking to breastfeed to let the alcohol clear her systems. I mean a baby can't handle that shait!

Keep in mind in reading the following that Conway is a heavily Baptist area where many regard drinking as a sin. I doubt that Arkansas really has a law that says breast feeding while consuming alcohol is child endangerment, or if it has any basis in reality.

http://www2.fox16.com/news/local/story/Server-Fired-After-Reporting- Bo ozing/tlz90qSoqEaXy8MEXcl7sQ.cspx?rss=315
...
Conners says her concerns that night grew to shock when she saw what 28-year-old Tasha Adams was doing. "She picked up her drink and took a drink of it while her baby was breastfeeding," Conners said.

Conners says she watched Adams consume drink after drink even after managers were notified what was going on.
...
"She was fired, but that wasn't the main reason," on-duty Gusanos manager William Clark said Wednesday.
Clark said he was not there last Wednesday and wouldn't elaborate on the "main reason" Conners was terminated.
When asked whether someone in Conners' position should have called police, Clark responded:
"That is something that were discussing with corporate as to how to adhere with that policy."


(what policy?)

FloydA: Please read this carefully.


Your hypothetical situation is meaningless, because it  works equally well in the other direction.

IF the the manager says not to call the police, and IF somebody is injured (or the baby is injured) as a result of the mom getting drunk, then somebody (or another member of the child's family) sues because the waitress, naming her as personally liable since she's the one that actually saw the woman getting drunk, while the manager may not have.

Considering the risk of injury to somebody, that's just as likely as suing the restaurant for harassment for being hassled by the cops one time.

What if the manager said not to call the cops because she's a good customer? What then? The woman is still endangering a child.

So, fark the hypothetical. Any number of hypothetical situations could have happened. Id' say the actual, end result is what mattered: The woman was found to be endangering a minor, and was arrested. The waitress did the right thing, and shouldn't have gotten fired for calling the police for somebody breaking and endangering another person.

People get kicked out of bars all the time. Sometimes it's for being drunk, and sometimes it's for no reason. You're saying people sue for that? Good luck. That case would be laughed out of court.

People sue for any reason at all. Seriously if you make a habit of not serving people who are of a protected class "for no reason" you will eventually get sued.

There are a couple of things the corporate lackeys hate. 1. You making a decision by yourself, without asking the higher up gods what to do first (and they would have said do nothing, well...until she pays up.) and 2. The worker actually doing the right thing to save someone. and 3. Anyone calling the police without management getting credit for it. I would imagine that if the manager had been the one to actually call (which he wouldn't) there would be no problem. and finally...4. Anything that gives the place bad press, or...most importantly, makes the management do something to earn their paycheck.

/and yes, she did the right thing.

Do I have to use smaller words here?  The point I am making, The Whole Entire Point that I am making, is that it is not the waitstaff's responsibility to make that kind of judgement call.  If it were, restaurants would not need to hire managers at all.

If the manager called the cops him/herself, or if the manager told the waitress to call the cops, or if the manager told the waitress not to call the cops, it would still be the manager's decision, not the waitress.

If I decided to just go over my boss' head and start making decisions about what my place of employment should do, I would be fired, and rightly so.  Businesses hire managers, and pay them more than the rest of the staff, specifically  because they want someone to make decisions.  The waitstaff are not authorized to usurp the managers' authority.

This is a very simple point.

This has nothing to do with whether or not calling the cops was the right decision (it was).  It has EVERYTHING to do with who is responsible for making that decision.  The manager is, the employee is not.  That's exactly why the manager is there in the first place.  That's what they are for.

Papa John's, where they encourage their drivers to case the joint while they're there.  What was so ridiculous about that incident is that the whole notion of "danger to children" was abandoned when they verified he had a script for the pot.  Oh really?

Officer:  "Dispatch had received a call from a Papa John's pizza delivery driver saying there were small children around people smoking pot. Department policy is to check up on situations where children may be in danger."

*checks prescription*

Officer:  "Not a big deal.  Have a nice day"

BUT WHAT ABOUT THE CHILDREN!!!

Fark you Papa John's.  If you ever send the cops to my house because I'm taking the edge off with a few glasses of wine (which for me, is the same experience as a few tokes on a joint), I will write scathing posts on every food review site out there about your little jack booted thugs with their raging hard ons to validate their moral superiority by farking with the lives of your customers. The child wasn't even present during the delivery, the driver had noticed her toys in the yard and made the assumption. Yes, I realize that alcohol is legal while pot isn't completely legal everywhere (yet), but the level of "danger" to children is the same and obviously not the REAL concern, since the cop didn't care he was legally high.

drumhellar: FloydA: This has nothing to do with whether or not calling the cops was the right decision (it was). It has EVERYTHING to do with who is responsible for making that decision.

This is only true if reporting to the manager absolves the waitress of all responsibility. When it comes to witnessing and reporting crimes, it doesn't. Saying, "I told my manager" doesn't release you of your civic responsibility in this situation.



Oh yeah?  Well I want my sweater back.  I said you could  borrow it, not  have it!  And pull up your damned socks, you look like a hobo.


(In other words, if you're dead set on wandering off on some bizarre tangent that has nothing to do with the subject at hand, just so you can argue, then I feel no obligation to take you at all seriously.  I do not waste time arguing with people who are unwilling and/or intellectually incapable of staying on topic.)
