Booze 'em young

By ChiefKoala - This FML is from back in 2016 but it's good stuff - United States - Harriman

Today, whilst in church, my brother's Sunday school teacher asked him what he loved to drink, to which he replied, "Beer." We have no idea why he said that, and the church is still talking to my parents. FML

So actually, this is my FML, but i didn't know if it would let me do a follow up since I have a different user name. So now to tell the whole story. My brother was very young and my family isn't big on alcohol; the most they drink is during the holidays when they're with family. Anyway, The church basically exiled us because they thought we were all raging alcoholics. I just heard mom telling the story and thought i would post it. it goes to show that kids really will say the darnest things haha. He's 13 now and I'm 21, so now he knows what beer actually is, and definitely doesn't say that's his favorite drink.

Wow what a nice Church. How very Christian to kick out people based on some silly thing a kid said. Clearly your family is better off without them.

Im guessing hes younger than 10?

It just sounds like a little kid either trying to be funny or letting his imagination run loose.

Young alcoholic in the making

Did he happen to get his hands on some beer in the house when no one was looking?

I honestly don't know why he said that. We aren't big on beer or any other alcohol. I have some now because i just turned 21, so I'm trying out different beers. Not all at once though.

Ginger beer perhaps?

This sounds like more of an FML for your parents than you.

That's funny.

Perhaps he meant root beer?

...hope they don't blame you.

OP made no indication she was being blamed for this

The phrase "I need a beer" is frequented on tv so that could be the root cause for sure
