Drinking Spoiled Milk.

Scary Dairy - Milk
United States
September 27, 2007 9:54pm CST
A little bit ago, I was in the "dark side" checking a conversation. I was out right chuckling over and I got up from my desk and went to the kitchen to get a bite to eat. I choose an apple and I wanted a glass of milk. In the refrigerator there was a sippy cup full of milk that my grandson had not drank and someone (probably Pops) put it in the fridge for later consumption. Well I thought I need to get it out of there as I had seen it in there for a few days. Now not wanting to waste milk, not at the price per gallon anymore, I took the top off it and started to chug, OMG OMG I had swallowed a good amount before I realized the dang thing was as spoiled as it gets. Before I knew it I was gagging over the sink. Thankfully the milk stayed down ( I really did not want to taste it again.) Moral of the story, if a child's sippy cup has been in the fridge for awhile best to pour it down the sink!!! The heck with milk prices. Now I need an alka-seltzer,,,,, So my friends have you ever done anything like this?

First Dsandoval, welcome to mylot! The "Dark side" is another forum that I spend time and play in. There are some Mylotters who are very sensitive to its name so to avoid any conflict of interests here a very good friend has taken to calling it the "dark Side", we all just kinda have fallen in suit. LMAO Sorry about the forced memory recall here, but I always chalks these kind of things as lessons learned. You can bet a pretty new penny the next time Nana reaches in for a sippy cup of milk I will indeed smell it first if not forgo the thing all together.

lol well to say the least, i bet you are glad that YOU drank out of it and not him, it probably would have made his little belly upset and he would have tasted it more then once! ew. I am very diligent about the washing of sippy cups here, but my hubby.. not so much.. and his son comes to visit once in a while, Well i'd ask hubby if he'd gotten all the cups rounded up for me to wash and he'd say oh yes. And then a week or two later i'd be tidying up and changing bed clothes and i'd find an OLD @SSED sippy cup stuck in the bed with milk so sour, i just tossed the cup. Lol now the poor boy doesn't have a single cup in the house left. Which is ok cause he's nearly 5 he SHOULD know how to drink out of a normal darn cup by now anyways without spilling it!!

Thanks for the laugh, although I'm sure it wasn't funny to you. I don't know how you kept it down. I would have been brushing my teeth and then chugging down some tea or water. Yuck! I did get some milk out of my parent's fridge for some cereal a couple weeks ago. I'm pretty cautious about expiration dates, but the milk wasn't supposed to expire for one more day. I went to put it back but my mom just told me to use it, it would be fine. It was soon apparent after my first spoonful, that the milk was in no way fine.

Back in good old elementary school I had a very evil teacher. For snack one day I chose chocolate milk instead of white milk. She was in a particularly evil mood that day and forced me to drink white milk regardless of my preference. It was spoiled. I have not been able to drink, smell or taste white milk since then. That was about 27 years ago. When I want to know if the milk is still good, my hubby has to smell it.

LAMobless your heart. I have had evil teachers myself, but none that I can remember that forced me to drink spoiled milk. Did she at least then give you a chocolate carton?

nope, she of course thought I was faking it. Even refused to smell the nasty stuff to prove it was indeed spoiled. :)

LOL--Yuk...I usually do the smell test and a taste test of milk all the time...If it smells odd, I just a little sip...if it tastes a bit off, down the drain it goes---For some reason milk just doesn't keep too well but then I don't drink much anyway.. One clue I think is for any "science" experiment in the refrigerator...if you don't know how long it's been there, uh, then it's been a tad too long...LOL

Pye, milk does not last very long in my house. in fact we go through about 2 1/2 gallons a week. Smelling it of course would have been the "smart" thing to do, oh because I can tell you first hand that it smelled as bad as it tasted! You know what they say shoulda woulda coulda.... too late.

One sure fire way I can tell if milk is just even slightly bad...My Pyewacket likes just a little bit of milk himself...if I notice he doesn't drink it I know it's starting to get bad, and he gives me a nasty look as if to say, "Hey, I can't drink this!!"" LOL

One time, when I was in Jr. High, I bought my lunch one day and I got some milk with it. When I saw down, I opened the milk and took a drink. It tasted like poison! I think I spit it out. I wasn't the only one that had this problem. It turned out that the whole crate or something was two months past the expiration date.

OH no YUCK a whole crate. But you know what Darlene, now that you said this I too remember how often in elementary that children got a carton of bad milk. Of course this is to many years ago for me to count and I am sure the standards where lower

Oh man Angelwhispers do I feel sorry for you! Always remember to smell the milk first. I am now an ovo-vegetarian, so milk is off my list, but I have had some bad encounters. I think the worst was when I was about 7, and I decided to make my lunch for school. So I filled a glass with milk the night before, but didn't put it in the fridge. So, in the morning I woke up, got ready, and went to school. At lunch, I opened my bag, took out the milk and downed the whole thing before I realized it was bad. Then later in the day I upchucked it all over my desk. Urghh..

Oh the poor child that you were! LMAO I love Dairy far to much to ever give it up. I have said many times even here in mylot, if I could drink milk strait from the cows TeeT I would, and have as a young girl LMAO. I could however give up meat, that would not be such a problem for me.

No, I can't say that I have. But it was funny to envision what you did, sorry for laughing. But that's true, about the sippy cups. You know the little one's they carry that thing around with them for no telling how long and the milk may have been bad by the time it went to the fridge to start with. I think I will remember your story for a long long time. Hope you are feeling ok now and having a great day :)

Well Pops said he put in into the fridge after cleaning up from lunch. But now cleaning up after lunch time for Pops could have been at 11:00pm 11 hours after lunch LMAO Glad I could give you a chuckle. It is funny now :)))

Milk get spoiled easily when you get it out of the fridge for a very long time. Usually after cleaning our fridge, the milk does get spoiled easily. I've been a victim also for drinking spoiled milk. Once i even pour it into the cereals and twice a didn't realize that it was spoiled. fortunately i only swallowed a small amount of it. It taste really bad and smells bad.

I don't believe this sippy cup was left out, just the fact that it was in the refrigerator for longer then it should have been. BTW welcome to mylot :))

I think I did that once. I did throw up, though. And ever since, I only keep milk around for about a week and if't been there any longer, I check it as I'm pouring for any signs of spoiling and throw it away immediately if I find any.

Your story reminds me of what happened to me when I was little. I was really little, under 5 at least, and my Dad was talking on the phone. I kept saying that I was thirsty, so he went looking through the refrigerator for me. Apparently, there was a sippy cup in there. He shook it and told me that it was orange juice (that's really what he thought it was) and gave it to me. I took a drink and it was rotten milk! Yuck! I spit it out and started crying. Needless to say, my Dad started checking the status of a drink before giving it to me.

Well now that you have related this story to me, I am rather glad I was the one to get it out of the fridge. Knowing my crew around here Pops or Uncle Jake would have handed my little feller that cup with out a thought.

I can just imagine the feeling and the taste! he ! Last summer we were having sundowners by the pool and we were being plagued again with small little flying bugs, they are a pest here in summer, especially just after dusk. Anyway, I was still talking and one of them flew right into my mouth! I started coughing and gagging, my poor husband thought I was getting a heart attack, he started yelling and shaking me! It took me a while to signal that I was ok, and had only swallowed a bug! Needless to say I rushed to the bathroom, brushed my teeth and wished I could drink some disinfectant! Moral of my story..stop being such a motormouth Annie! especially at dusk! :)

LMAO Anne, we have those small annoying gnats at the lakes in the evening just as you describe, I have done the same thing. Even breathed them right up in my nose, sneezing and spitting and you still feel the dang thing in there. There is never a kleenex around either.
