There's dirty work afoot!

Post by fdoosey »

Last night, the Mrs. and I went to our friends' house for dinner. I had 3 beers over the course of an hour, then we sat around and BSed for 2 hours. My wife was exhausted but insisted she drive because "I had way too much to drink".

Wha?

I didn't say anything because I didn't need to have a fight on the way home. She was all over the road, and I repeatedly asked her to pull over so I could drive because she was falling asleep. Nope.

We got home somehow and when we got in the house I asked her why it's such a big deal that she had to drive at the risk of our safety. I told her I wouldn't have been all over the road like her.

"You drank too much to drive." I 'splained to her that 3 beers wouldn't impair a normal human, let alone someone like me - twice the size, and many times the tolerance. 3 beers is like the proverbial errant moth bouncing off my granite liver. (Thanks for that gem MDM)

Then it occurred to me. She's a teacher, and they had a drunk driving awareness thing this week at her school.

Fucking MADD is pumping her full of lies! I must be setting her straight.

Mind you, I coulda brought up all the times she drove home blind drunk. But I'm a gentleman sometimes.

I usually dont drive at all when I plan on drinking, but that's because I've gotten that DWI thing and once was more than enough. I learned my lesson.

Same with me, BUT...

Look, 3 beers with food. Not much. Plus 2 hours talking. I think you loose one beer for every 2 hours. So, 2 beers and an empty stomach. Fine.

On the rare occasion I drive after any drinkin, my max is three. Usually though, it's much like you. I come home and eat and have afew over a couple of hours, then drive to the LQ. That's about it.

2 beers lost in a hour i always heard one. Geez you wouldnt even have blown much if you were breathalyzed. I've said it before MADD is my enemy.

my father taught me "the test" when i was a kid. look your intoxicated friend dead in the eyes and ask "are you all right to drive?" if the answer is yes, test concluded, just don't get puke on the steering wheel.

I always say, "Two pints happy, Three pints drunk." Doesn't stop me from driving after three, that's just what I always say.

Four or more and I start looking for alternative transportation, usually. My wife is good in that she starts the evening insisting that I willl be doing the driving but usually finishes the evening acknowledging that I am worse for the wear. Still, there are times when she won't slow down and I'm forced to control myself. I hate that.

When we are very lucky we can rely on our below drinking age daughter to escort us for the evening. She can get rather stubborn at times; I've actually had to pay her to drive on occasion. EXTORTION!

DEATH TO MADD!!

Post by Combat Rock »

Do you remember all the madd shit they brought into our schools? Well, I'm 27, and those fuckers had all of us thinking our parents were these fucking monsters - and we were encouraged to report them to our teachers!!! I swear to god! One kid was crying cause his dad told him to have a sip of beer, and he had to stay after class for a conference! Shit, I was worried cause my dad had 2 - 3 drinks a day. My heathen grandpa once drank 4 beers during the course of an afternoon working in the yard! Should I report him as well, herr goebbels? Will I get a new patch to sew onto my MADD youth armband?

That's where we come in. We must be as evangelical as they are. DO YOUR PART! Drinking is natural! Drinking is okay! Drinking is fun! Drinking is universal! They are the fascists, and we are the resistance!

Spread the word! Get a freind drunk tonight! Buy a minor alcohol! Spread goodness accross the land!

Fuck, I'm gonna go and do my part right now!

Well, I went out with my buddy last night...bowled and had 7 beers between 10 and 1 AM. Was dead undrunk. No buzz. I drove home and all was well.

MADD is full of shite. Those of you outside the US, thank God for your freedoms. We Americans do need to take a stand against MADD, with a truth campaign of our own, like those snotty fascist kids who try to tell you the tobacco companies are responsible for people smoking, rainy days, and dead kittens.

They want you to think you're a mindless robot so they can treat you like one.

The worst are those stupid posters saying, "Impairment begins with the first drink." God I hate those things. Impairment for who, an 80 pound high school freshman girl? I'd say impairment begins with the 4th drink, and from looking at the results of the poll I think that my fellow alcoholics here on this board would agree with me.

I'm sorry. I really don't want to be an arse, but a car is the the most lethal weapon a civilian will ever get their hands on. In my opinion, if you're ok to drive, then ok. But if you kill someone (and I don't care if you're drunk or not) I will kick your arse. Be responsible. Don't drive like a loony. And here I'm taking about undrunk drivers who drive in a shitty and lethal fashion. Lost too many good friends through cunts who drive carelessly!

Well, youres truly almost bought the farm last night thanks to one of Palinka's aforementioned cunts. The sumbitch decided he wanted to be cool and drive into the shoulder to cut around me at about 100 mph. I honked, screamed at him and wished his death at the hands of anything painful. Don't know if he was drunk or not, but given where he was hurrying to I'd wager stoned at minimum.

I hate those little shits with their hopped up rice burners making noise and driving like assholes. The best thing they can do for the human race is to, as the Darwin Awards say, remove themselves from it.

Hear, hear. Just so long as the wee radgers don't take any of us with them. Kill yourself if you want but try to take out me and mine and I guarantee you will be hurting.
