you're right. no one notices (or really cares, for that matter). if i DO happen to notice someone drinking water or a pop, i usually assume they're the designated driver.At one time I thought people would wonder about what I was or wasn't drinking and realized that most people don't notice and don't care.
I am right there with you, I used to think people thought less of me when they were busy getting waisted but now - I really don't care, I am proud not to drink -not killing my brain cells, not killing my liver, etc....Hell, my husband drinks enough for the both of us! HA!HA!The post is deleted, but I assume it's about non-alcoholic drinks in a bar setting? I don't drink alcohol, and I don't "pretend" drink--I get a diet Coke, or a club soda w/lime, both of which I like, and go on about my business. At one time I thought people would wonder about what I was or wasn't drinking and realized that most people don't notice and don't care. Not making assumptions, but if it's hard to be in this environment and not drink alcohol, simply don't go there. Again, not making assumptions, but PM me if you'd like.
in theory, yes. but we all know people don't really pay attention to that.^ No one should really drink even one drink and drive. You can be given a DUI even for that
i've been on all sides of the fence (drinker, non drinker, cocktail server). most bars/bartenders want to keep their patrons safe 1) so they come back and spend more money and 2) don't get the bar in trouble. if you're in a group and one of the few (or the only) non drinker, most bartenders (not all, but most) will happily give you free non alcoholic drinks as long as they're easy (no virgin daquiris, but diet coke/coffee? sure.) it's nice though to still tip per drink, especially if it's busy. even if it's water, he or she is still serving you.(and pop is usually free, hehe).
You ever try a Georgia Peach from there?I don't really drink either.
Whenever I am at the Cheesecake Factory, I HAVE to get a bellini though!! OMG HEAVEN!!!!
