You Tell Me if This Makes Sense
Hence I have this bartending class of 7 students and 4 of them are 18 years old which means that for the next 9 weeks I can make the drinks and they can only watch and not taste them.
Now here is what I am going to say. Why is it someone can serve something they are not allowed to promote? I mean you cannot sell something you yourself have never tried.
If you take a driver's education course you take classroom training plus you drive the car. What about if someone had the intention of driving but was only allowed to take the classroom training? They were too young to drive.
Each class this happens but this time I have more that cannot drink than can.
This is going to be some class especially when the 18 years of age students are all going to be bugging me each week for a sip.
I hope one day this law will be changed so that whether it is 18 or 19 they will both be the same for serving and drinking. Cause this is ridiculous and serves no useful purpose.
