お酒を提供した相手は妊婦だった…! あなたならどうする?





    During my shift last night, a group of four women in their late 20s came in. They were a pleasure to have as customers. They ordered four of our house cocktails to start with and then went over the menu for their entrees.






    This time, I went to the bartender, and asked him to make one of them a virgin cocktail. He was confused, but since he's a good friend of mine, I told him to just trust me.

    {My manager] also informed me that I could get the restaurant in serious trouble for discrimination, and upon examination of my state's laws, she is correct.





    YTA [You're The Asshole]. If you really didn’t feel comfortable serving her, you should have told your manager, not made a bad decision on your own.



    Unless you saw the woman pee on a pregnancy test, you had no way of knowing for sure that she was pregnant. She could have been talking about someone else, a past pregnancy, or she could be planning to terminate the pregnancy. That wasn’t your call to make.



    You don’t get to decide what another person of legal age decides to consume. Mind your own business.



    You would not be the asshole if you had told her what you heard and said you didn't feel comfortable serving her alcohol.



    Mixed drinks are expensive and the fact that you were going to change the check is also really shitty.



    It seems to me you wanted to play some weird hero. In the industry, you don’t change orders. Big, big, big no-no. It doesn’t matter if she was pregnant, diabetic, missing a liver, allergic to liquids, and so on. It doesn’t matter. It’s her choice what she orders, her choice what she decides to ingest. She will have to deal with the consequences, not you.



    If it's okay for bartenders to cut off customers they think are too drunk, is this really that far from it? Making it a virgin drink isn't a huge change.



    You’d think one of her friends would have said something to her. You probably shouldn’t have made the call but your head was in the right place. I mean Jesus...people are acting like you fed a vegan meat intentionally or gave someone wheat when they have a gluten allergy.



    Morally you absolutely did the right thing so I’m going to say NTA [Not The Asshole]. Although from a work perspective you did take some big risks, but I still think you did the right thing. I would struggle to knowingly serve a pregnant woman alcohol without saying anything.
