OP didn't say anything about passing out. Their family just left OP at a restaurant. It's pretty black & white, and it happens all the time. My mom once forgot me in a sketchy area of downtown when I was 8. She then forgot where she forgot me! So she just kind of gave up looking. I had to walk into a police station for help. They gave me a ride home.
#47 It's actually a pretty normal thing. When you're in a large party, it's pretty easy to forget who's where, and pretty hard to keep tabs on every person. I worked in a restaurant a while back, and there would be at least one person a week asking to use our courtesy phone. Because they were forgotten by their party while they stepped out for a bit. Why would your family, as a collective, come to the descison that you should be left behind at the restaurant? If they were secretly planning to leave OP there, they wouldn't have invited OP to begin with. Unless they were complete dickwads. In which case, why would you go to dinner with them/expect an uneventful evening?
The best thing to do in a situation like this is to stay calm. They'll remember and come back for you
Maybe they are planning a surprise party for you when you get home? Always look on the bright side OP :)
