MOTY award (once again)
So.. SS18s GF broke up with him last week. We knew it would happen eventually but I didn't think it would be this quick. Now he has been friends with this girl through high school but she wasn't ever interested in him. All of his friends are mixed in with this girl so he wasn't seeing any of his friends. I'll add she's 18 with no job, not going to school, and no license yet.. apparently working on all of them.. she comes from an INTACT family too. Complete failure to launch.
So, because SS18 has no where to go... one of his stops BMs. He comes home Thursday last week and says to us that he met BM "out at a bar" and the bartender knew some people he knew (I'm assuming freshly 21..) and SS18 felt "better" talking to her about it... OK.
So last night he starts with.."what are we going to be doing in Mexico?" SO is like whatever we want. Hangout, eat, they have shows at the resort, probably go snorkeling one day etc. I'll add there are multiple families going on this trip.. so plenty of people to hang out with..
SS18 follows with.."well can I drink?!" SO says.."uhhh no." Let's keep in mind SS18 is immature for 18. Kid has work ethic but he has the mentality of a 12/13 year old.
SS18 keeps with that's its legal there blah blah. SO says well we are going to be following US laws and no SS you can't drink.
HERE is where things get interesting.. SS18: "well it's legal for a parent to buy their child 18-20 a drink at bar that's what Mom says and LOOK LOOK I'LL SHOW YOU!!!!" He busts out trusty google..
I'm just like LOLL seriously.. this is one of the dumbest things I've heard. I go SS18 I've NEVER heard of such a thing EVER.
He does pull up some random thing that states they (18-20) can possess but nothing about consumption. So we pull articles about bars getting shut down for underage drinking.. I text my friend who's a state cop for further clarification. I also told SS18 (because I just don't give a fxxx anymore) that good luck finding a bar to serve you and I guess it will have to be with your mother because not a chance in hell we would ever do that.
So basically BM was encouraging SS18 to drink. The kid he is so mentally immature to begin with ... Not surprised. It's funny when he came home Thursday from his bar hang out with Mommy he made it a point to say "I had a Shirley temple.. non alcoholic." Ok SS18 because the drink is already a non alcoholic drink...
BM hangs out in dive biker bars so im sure they WOULD serve underage.
Also...SS18 told SO that BM and her husband but a driver camper so they can tow their motorcycles out of state and camp I guess. BM naturally told him it cost 27k. Must be nice! My guess that is her husband buying that but... still.. must be nice.
