last night i went out for a friend birthday . i wasnt drinking so on 7 up.
a bar man asked me for 4.20 for a little glass bottle of 7 up. i told him i could get 5 littles for that in tescos. and do you know what he said. off you go love i dont price the drinks.
i know the manager and he said there was a mistake it should only be 2.80 for 7 up and gave me it free and said sorry.
my point is omg how do we stop young people or drunk driving if 7 up etc is nearly as dear as alcohol.
what do other people think about this ???July 14, 2009 at 4:45 pm #75399FabienneMember
I agree with you.

There is no justification for the price of soft drinks in pubs….so much for encouraging/supporting young people/those who don’t drink or those driving!!! I had an alcohol free beer in a restaurant when I was pregnant and nearly fell off the chair (sober) when I saw it was MORE expensive than the alcoholic beer!July 14, 2009 at 9:54 pm #75409HappymammyMember
Is the designated driver not given free non alcoholic drinks any more? I know up until last month in Dublin this was definitely the case.July 15, 2009 at 4:38 pm #75425Sabrinab 08Member
I totally agree with you.. i drink every now and then but most times when we go out I offer to be "dessie" as I dont mind driving, it bugs me that I have to fork out nearly as much as those drinkin alcohol!!!!
Have even asked in some places if the minerals are free as ther was a promo on this on tv to encourage designated drivers.. the mormal response i get is" oh sorry we dont take part in that"….
And they wonder why our roads deaths are one of the highest in Europe!! 👿 🙄
Why can these things not be implemented nationwide, personally speaking I think its only fair for the drivers mierals to be free.. there is only so many diet coke i can drink before i feel sick.. I wouldnt drink all the stock..
Sorry for the rant ladies. but good point to raise btw!!July 16, 2009 at 12:18 pm #75445super minderMember

Super minder so glad Im not the only one on the christmas count down, my ds has started his santa list already, was in tkmaxx and he wanted a big toy I said no you will have to ask santa…. a woman beside me rolled her eyes and said FFS 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆
I think its because we had to book our santa steam train tickets a few weeks ago
Drivers should get minerals free when out
