Crying over spilt milk - crying over sour milk more like.

Whilst eating out the other day with my family , we noticed that my eldest daughters glass of milk that she had ordered was gone off, not just a little bit funny tasting, but warm and with bits in it, my poor child was almost sick and was so upset with what she had tasted that she cried.

My daughter took the glass of milk back to the bar where the til man attempted to tell her that actually the milk was fine because it had today's date on it , being aged 14 and a little madam, she used her teenage attitude to tell him to try it himself then if he didn't believe her.

He took one sip then coughed loudly and screwed his face up in disgust and started to apologise, he then gave my daughter a large Pepsi which cost more than the milk had without charging her any extra.

At the time i was so hot and bothered, it was boiling that day and i didn't have the energy to go up to the bar and complain, what must have happened was that the carton of milk must have been left out on the counter and in the hot weather it must have gone off.

I dont know enough about health and safety so didn't want to go up and have a go and embarrass myself, but surely weather its hot or not that milk should be kept in the fridge, even more so if its a very hot day like it was.

My daughter has not touched a drop of milk since.

I know it wasn't deliberate i was just a little shocked that the well named restaurant had made such a mistake.

Yeah I can only imagine how much that could scar someone for quite sometime... bad tastes like that tend to leave a lasting impression.
