Underage Drinking

We have friends who find nothing wrong with allowing their 16 year olds to drink. They allow them to have beer pong parties with their friends (because they are doing it in their home) and allow them to try different types of wines (In their words "to make them a connoisseur of wine").

We find this unacceptable as if they are doing it at home, you know they are doing it elsewhere and these kids are able to drive now so I can not believe that none of them ever drive home drunk.

What does everyone think of this?

Does anyone have any clue what the deal is with the Manwichs in the first place? I didn't even know what manwiches were. I had to look them up. I hoped they involved kinky sex. Turns out it's only canned sloppy joe mix. Is there some scandal involving sloppy joe's that I was blessed enough to miss? Are we supposed to be ashamed of eating sloppy joe's for some reason?

I know what manwich is but I have no clue how it relates to the debate.  Maybe it's like the great lasagna or meatball debates?

I think Spice Girl introduced it as a diversionary tactic to destroy Sav's foodie cred.

That's my thought too.   I guess she thinks that to be a foodie, you must eat gourmet, expensive, hand-created, served on real china and silver meals for EVERY meal.

Really? That just reeks of desperation. Poor thing.

I think that there was a lot of that going on.

Hello ladies,

Please excuse my intrusion on this thread.  I wanted to post a general reminder to keep to the debate on hand and not discuss personal aspects of members' lives.   

I'm thrilled to see you all posting on this thread, and would love to see the debate continue.  I know it's not the easiest format currently, and those issues have been addressed with our tech team.  We appreciate your patience.  

Thanks!

I think it relates back to Sav posting her menu one week and then later saying she worked a lot and some of the menu days didn't work that way.   I don't remember SAv saying that anyone was eating Manwich sandwiches for dinner, or saying what anyone actually ate...I'm too lazy to look.  But I do remember 2 posters going back and forth jesting about how people lie about eating good food and just feed their family crap...Somehow making assumptions or outright making up false information is some kind of proper way of debating so that you can then say other people attack you.  It's all pretty murky and confusing.
