Them's The Rules

To my fellow 19-year-olds in Amarillo and the broader state of Texas, I get that may seem like a dumb rule according to the law, but we are old enough to enlist in the military, own a shotgun or rifle, and operate a 2-ton vehicle, but apparently not old enough to drink. It may seem odd or ridiculous to some, but them's the rules and there's not much you can do about it

Now of course that doesn't stop all people who are under the age of 21. Some decide to get alcohol from family or friends who are capable of purchasing alcohol, while others decide to grab a fake ID that can convince an individual serving alcohol that the person they are serving is of legal age to drink depending on the quality of the fake ID.

There are a bunch of ways to get alcohol, and all of them carry their own risks if you get caught.

Complaining For The Wrong Reasons

But if you get caught by the establishment serving you alcohol, it might be a good idea to cut your losses, call it a night and reconsider your life decisions. But don't leave a bad frickin review of the place that took your drinks.


In this now-deleted post under the Amarillo Restaurant Reviews page on Facebook, commenters were quick to point out that the original poster was not even of drinking age when they took a peek at his profile.

Turns out that if you go to Facebook reviews of restaurants and/or bars, you can actually find quite a bit of reviews talking bad about an establishment's drink services due to them either being refused service or getting drinks taken away once the establishment finds out their ages.

I mean it's obvious that if you are drinking while under the age you ARE going to get reprehended in some shape or fashion, right?

Well, it seems to not be so obvious to some.

So in conclusion, if you are going to try to go around the law, don't get mad when your plans don't go through as planned.
