Am I the only one in my age bracket, 18-25, who doesn't drink energy drinks?

 

 

they taste like crap.... i sometime have energy drink with my Jaeger bombs... that is it... and even that is rare... it taste disgusting ... kids drink it cause they think they need it to be cool or to function ... personally energy drinks do nothing for me.

So let me get this straight. Her son drank two cans a day of this witches brew that taste like crap even though the can says it is hazardous to your health, she as a parent was aware her son was doing this and failed to keep him from consuming the stuff which he kept doing for not a couple of months but for three years and now she wants to sue the company ? So it is Monster Energy responsibility to do the parenting and keep an eye on what kids drink these days ? What is wrong with this picture ?

Very, very true.  Unfortunately, many Americans have learned and understand only one word:

 

Rights

There are these magical concepts called 'responsibility' and 'moderation'; people nowadays need to learn these. I hope the judge throws this case out.

 

I wonder if she could get charged for negligence?

Exactly!  This woman is bad parent for not taking responsibility for her child!  So many parents blaming everyone else for their own mistakes.

 

 

I just do not understand how all of these parents seam to think the safety of their child should be in the hands of corporations, if you let your child drink it then its your problem not theirs, there is plenty of warning about these drinks all over the place.

Nope, energy drinks do do ###### anyway. Caffine doesn't give you energy, it just slows down how much you lose.  Not drank a fizzy drink for nearly 4 years.
