Tonight Darling Husband and I went out to dinner, and naturally, we had drinks. I was not in the mood for drinking much more than a glass of wine, but I really really wanted a pina colada, so I ordered it virgin. The first thing I noticed is that it came in a different glass, and I asked why, and the server said “so we don’t mix up virgin and non-virgin drinks” then immediately asked if I would like it transfered to another glass (which of course was not necissary). The next thing I noticed is that is was on our reciept as a “Virgin” drink, and was less expensive than the with-alcohol version.
This makes me wonder, OP did your first and second drink come in different glasses? Did you check the reciept to see if you were charged for two virgins, or one virgin and one non-virgin? After tonight’s experience, I am leaning more towards you didn’t actually have an alcoholic drink, but in fact, your mind tricked you in to having one (as you are likely very concerned about what you’re putting in your body, with good reason, obviously). Also, since you told your husband there might be alcohol in it, and since he’d been drinking, likely his mind tricked him as well. If I were you, that would be a very comforting thought.
If not, and you were served an alcoholic drink, then your reciept should reflect this. If you don’t have the reciept, you can call the restaurant and they can check the logs, as I am sure their computer systems keep track of orders for a while. If your reciept says “2 virgins” then, if by some random chance your drink did have alcohol, then you know the waitress put it in as virgin and the bartender messed up, but you could rest easy knowing that it is more likely than not, that you were not served alcohol, but in fact, your mind played a trick on you.
If the reciept shows that you had 1 virgin and 1 non-virgin, you can still rest easy and know that this small amount of alcohol will have absolutely no ill-effects on your child. But, if the reciept does read one virgin and one non-virgin, then I do think you should alert management. Not to try and get freebies, but to let them know so that something like this can be avoided in the future. If the business offers you something (and a lot of places will, especially if you’re polite and non-aggresive) then don’t feel guilty about taking it.
