  • I would serve her. I would be a barman, not a social worker.
  • I wouldn't give her her drink.
  • make up some bullshit policy like "we here at joey joe's have a policy to inform women in pregnancy that alchohol can be deadly to the baby, would you like to go ahead and order a virgin something or are you sticking to the alchohol?" something like that
  • I'd serve her, it is not up to me to judge her.
  • There's a certain amount that safe for the woman. But, you have to give more details. Is she there every night sucking it up or just sometimes having a glass of wine?
  • i would have the option of refusing so serve her... or being an idiot who cared about tips
  • I'd assume she was an intelligent woman who can make her own decisions. Women in Europe drink and smoke through out their pregnancies....its the alcoholics and crack heads who ruined it for everyone in America. A little is ok.
  • I'm there to serve not to judge. Why is it ok to serve anyone tobacco or alcohol who will go on to beat his/her spouse or cough up a lung?
  • I would serve her the alchocol...she & her baby are not my responsibility.
  • maybe the drink isnt alcoholic. and maybe the cigarettes arent for her. drink could mean water. or juice beverage. or something carbonated. If you worked at an establishment that served alcohol and/or tobacco and a pregnant woman ordered a drink and/or a pack of cigarettes, what would you have done?
  • I'd serve it's none of my business what she does with her body,also i legally wouldn't have the right to refuse to serve her.
  • I agree with many of the others, I would fulfill my duties and serve her.
  • She's a grown woman. She has the right to make choices about what she ingests. Most of the recommendations about alcohol limits are overstated, anyway.
  • There's not alot I could do, but I can tell you I wouldn't be serving her with a smile.
  • I'd serve her. She knows the risks and it's not my job to coerce her to do what is generally considered the "right" thing. And who knows - she may not even be planning to consume them herself. We have enough Big Brother as it is without adding to it
  • Nothing. While I would disapprove, I do not have a voice into her life. I cannot speak to her about her choices without her permission. I cannot get that without trust. She won't trust me until I love and accept her as she is. Maybe then, I would be asked and I could do some good.
  • it would feel morally bankrupt to serve alcohol to someone who was with child... however, i've been told it is discrimination not to honor their requests. i would probably step out and go to the bathroom and hope someone else would help her.
  • I would ask if the drink was for her. If it was I would not serve her alcohol. Cigarettes I think I would accept, but never alcohol with pregnancy. I will not be a part of that. If I was an employee, I would let the boss know that I'm not comfortable with this and if s/he wants this woman to be served someone else will have to do it. If I was the boss I would let her know she's not getting a drink here, ever.
  • What would I do? I work there to help the boss make money if he doesn't make money then my job could be in jeopardy. I would give her the drink (on me) then I would give her the cigs. I would say "thank You" for the business. When you want anything else, just wink ;) at me, and I will come running to help you again. Have a Great Day!!
  • I would give her what she asked for, it's not for me to judge her.
  • Firstly, I would feel really uncomfortable. In some shy manner I may remind her, woman to woman the affects it will have on her unborn baby. :( I wouldn't go into some long shpeal but I don't have the heart to just hand it over. I would listen to the customer and serve her because it is her mind, body, baby-she makes decisions for HER life but geez-I would feel bad. If I had to go get the drinks and cigarettes I may mention it to someone else in the establishment, perhaps a higher-archey if nearby and maybe they would hand it to her!haha.[pass the responsibility] I would feel like Im breaking what should be a law or something. No pregnant women allowed to have all these dangerous things while having a baby...
  • sadly, its not our place to make decisions for other people, even if we think the decision is far reaching and potentially dangerous, Id be most likely very physically distant, even trying to make her feel uncomfortable, but in the end , the choice is hers, in fact thinking about it even further, I think I would ask some one else to serve her..........
  • I wouldn't work in a place that didn't have at least a warning sign at the table for her to warn her. Other than that, nothing. I wouldn't serve her, cause I'm doing what it say's I'm suppose to do in the sign on the table in front of her. End of story.
  • I do work for an establishment that serves alcohol and I would serve her. I know if we also sold tobacco, I would serve her that as well. It is up to her to make decisions about her own body and her unborn child and not for me to judge.
  • Personal emotions have no place in the workplace, you do your job or you quit.
  • remember, you have the right to refuse service to anyone!!!!!
  • Tell her too bleeping bad. I'm not going to be a part of that *****'s **********, and if the boss doesn't like it, he can kiss my *** and fire me!!!
  • I would refuse to serve her as i have done in the past. The right to refuse exists for a reason. I do not agree with it and therefore cannot let my actions allow her to damage her child. She may go somewhere else and get them but not from me.
  • i dont think there would be much i could do
  • Do my job and serve her. Its none of my business to police her pregnancy and be judgemental.
  • I thought women didn't like to be told what to do with their own bodies?
  • Follow the rules of the job. I don't think the law forbids serving her. Its her choice. Besides, it might not even be for her. But if I had to watch her consume them I might look for another job.
  • not nnuch you can do
