Her God's a tool by Cloaked User (2.00 / 0) #1 Sat Jul 14, 2007 at 12:01:04 PM EST
But He doesn't make her drink and smoke.

Free will and all that

But yeah, that's horrible; I can only hope that either the kid doesn't survive, or cuts the luckiest break ever and comes through unscathed. Hey, sometimes even I'm an optimist...

This is not a psychotic episode. It is a cleansing moment of clarity.

Licensing law? by Alan Crowe (2.00 / 0) #2 Sat Jul 14, 2007 at 12:13:49 PM EST

I thought that the law forbids serving drunks. I realise that I'm being naive because I'm tee-total and it is only rarely that I get dragged into pubs.

Where do those really drunk people come from? Obviously from bars where the bar tenders keep serving. But it still rankles with me that there is a prefectly sensible law and an unwritten repeal.

If they don't drink in a bar by BadDoggie (2.00 / 0) #3 Sat Jul 14, 2007 at 12:25:29 PM EST
They drink at home. And they drink more. And faster. And normal shops are under no restriction from selling bottles of alcohol to clearly drunk people. At least in this bar they'll get some water or tea or something in between, especially when I'm here since I often give them that for free. Every so often they actually order real food.

I have witnessed a similar but not religion inspired scenario. TFB* who I used to work for/with in Nottinghamshire had a wife. He wanted kids, she didn't (already had 3 from a previous marriage). She knew that he was desperate for kids**. In the 2 years I was there, she got pregnant 3 times. Each time she would immediately start drinking and smoking (mostly behind TFB's back but in front of us). Once she went to 8 months before losing the baby. She also exhibited other symptoms of Evil Bitch Syndrome as well.

*That Fat Bastard
**Recently I found out that he was convicted of multiple counts of rape of a 15 year old girl. So he really likes children.
