Mean Betty on Applebee’s: Where Apple Juice and Margaritas are One in the Same
There’s nothing like mixing a margarita in a sippy cup, right pets?
Happy Monday, poppets. Mean Betty hopes you had a deliciously deviant weekend. Mean Betty is still getting over her Saturday night margarita haze… and apparently, so is a 15-month-old toddler in Michigan.
There’s nothing like a baby with a hangover, right pets?
The geniuses who work at a local Applebee’s put ALOCHOLIC MARGARITA MIX in the baby boy’s sippy cup instead of apple juice. Because it’s so easy to mix those two up.
The baby’s mama noticed her son started “acting strangely” after a few sips. When she tasted the sweet, recognizable deliciousness that is margarita mix in the sippy cup, she immediately escorted her toddler to the emergency room, where his blood alcohol level registered at .10. Baby was b-o-m-b-e-d!
Mean Betty is curious: what does a drunk baby act like? And, how can you tell the difference between an intoxicated toddler and a regular, burping, gurgling, giggling infant?
But, more importantly, HOW DO YOU CONFUSE MARGARITA MIX WITH APPLE JUICE? Mean Betty has to wonder what the heck the server was thinking as they continued to pour alcohol into a tiny cup that has a screw on top with a special spill-proof spout meant for, and only for, a toddler’s mouth. Did they pour it at the bar? Or was it somewhere in a back room where they have a private stash of “sustenance” to get them through their miserable work day?
Either way, Applebee’s is trying to save face by not taking the matter lightly. In a statement, they called the incident “unacceptable” and claim they will conduct their own investigation to find out how such an idiotic mistake was made.
Here’s Mean Betty’s two cents: hire people who can tell the difference between a margarita and apple juice!!
P.S. Wonder if that baby has any aspirin Mean Betty could borrow… hangover is really kickin’ in right about now!
