They didn't have alcohol there, did they?

'Steaming drunk' as in falling over and singing 'Danny Boy'?
If so, I would be slightly less than gruntled.

driving? with your ds in the car? walking in traffic? VERY IRRESPONSIBLE!

EricGallagher Fri 20-Jul-07 18:31:05

Did he sneak a bottle of vodka in with him?

Is your DS OK?

Jazzicatz Fri 20-Jul-07 18:31:35

They did, and he has drunk most of it by the look of him!!!!!!!

FirenzeandZooey Fri 20-Jul-07 18:34:36

That is fkn abysmal

they are not legally allowed to let your ds go home with him in his care if he is drunk, for a start

I would kick up a HUGE fuss

with the nursery, for having alcohol there
with the nursery, for allowing your ds to go home in the care of a drunk adult
with your dp, for being a wanker

Tell us what happened Jazzi, is your DS OK?

coddy Fri 20-Jul-07 18:35:40

you miserable sods

we are adults.....

coddy Fri 20-Jul-07 18:36:10

you cna be done fro frunk in charge but i think you ahev to be absent from the kid or negletctful in some way

I really don't understand alcohol being at school or nursery events, particularly daytime ones.

To be fair, though, if Jazzicatz's DP can't keep himself sober in this sort of situation, I fear how he is the rest of the time.

coddy Fri 20-Jul-07 18:37:28

oh we often have it at our rather posh priavet nursery one
kids are none the wiser./
we haev paretns socials

FirenzeandZooey Fri 20-Jul-07 18:38:10

No cod, the nursery are not allowed to release the children in their care to an adult who is drunk

DoubleBluff Fri 20-Jul-07 18:38:11

Holier than thou!
It's the last day of school let your ahir down.
Had a few gins myself!

FirenzeandZooey Fri 20-Jul-07 18:39:03

Holier than thou? For thinking there is no place for alcohol at an event for children?

you're all fucking mad

Jazzicatz Fri 20-Jul-07 18:39:11

Yes ds ok, but nursery have just phoned to make sure they got back ok because ds had been sick before coming home. Dp now asleep in bed!!!!!!

stoppinattwo Fri 20-Jul-07 18:39:18

why would the nursery want to serve alcohol at a nursery party..........??

It is beyond me??

I presume it was for those leaving nursery.

What a good example to set

DangerousBeans Fri 20-Jul-07 18:40:03

We used to have wine at our nursery events, but the adults were sensible enough to know that you're supposed to have just one glass, or maybe two if not driving.

Sounds like jazzicatz's DP saw it as an excuse to chug back the free alcohol, and get hammered.

Not terribly classy really.

FirenzeandZooey Fri 20-Jul-07 18:40:23

Are you hacked off with the nursery jazzi, or just dp? Are you going to do anything about it?

stoppinattwo Fri 20-Jul-07 18:40:38

Im with franny on this...completely thoughtless and irresponsible

Jazzicatz Fri 20-Jul-07 18:41:22

I am actually really pissed off with dp and nursery. One of the teachers offered to drive dp and ds home because dp so hammered

greensleeves Fri 20-Jul-07 18:41:25

I'd take a pretty dim view of this personally. I'd probably break his jaw. And flush his chess set down the john.

If they want to have a boozy adults' social session, they should arrange it in the evening when the children aren't there. Sending all the children home with tipsy parents is just weird.
