Don't Drink and Drive

With the holidays upon us I would like to share a personal experience with you all about drinking and driving after a "social event" with friends. A couple of weeks ago, I was out on a post-Thanksgiving evening with several friends. I had a few cocktails, followed by several glasses of wine. Despite my jolliness, I still had the sense to know that I was over the limit. That's when I decided to do what I have never done before: I took a cab home. Sure enough, there was a police road block on the highway but, since it was a cab, they waved it past. I arrived home safely without incident. This was both a great relief and surprise because I had never driven a cab before. I don't even know where I got it from and, now that it is in my garage, I don't know what to do with it.

Obviously drunk driving is very bad and extremely had on the budget. I have emphasized this to my kids as it's an education killer for young people trying to work min wage jobs and go to school. They told me about Uber. I dont want to go into the rights or wrongs of new systems like this but just like a traditional cab it's a fantastic idea.

I told them cab or Uber, if it's $200.00 to ride in one tonight DO IT! I also explained that it just has to be part of their budget. Say it's $20.00 round trip to the club one time a week. That's a $1,000 a year for 50 nights of no risk or worry. It's an absolute steal!!! Use yer head kid.

Loved the joke, but I am curious. Did you still have to feed the meter when you got home??

Good for you, Far too many get a bit ..er.. Jolly and think they can drive safely.. The following is a true story:
Couple pulls into the parking lot at a Michigan State Police post. Parks the car in a NO PARKING zone and goes in, the wife (passanger) and husband (Driver) have been arguing about how drunk he is (She thinks he is too drunk to drive) he loudly (And aromatically) demands a Breth-a-lizer test. Desk Sgt. complies... (He flunked) then tests the wife (She also flunked) then called a cab to take her home (Since she was not driving) a tow truck for the car (Since it was parked in the no parking) and a Blue Goose (MSP patrol car) for him.

Me, I can drink as much as I want and not worry about the police,, but then I'm a coffee-holic,, I drink coffee and/or water and/or Tea, Booze I can not stand the taste of, that includes most wines. Beer, well I might as well drink water.. SO .. I do.

The cab should be for sale at a bargain price.

I guess you could just call the cops and say you "found" a cab in your garage!

Friend of mine was sitting in the passenger side of a car drunk on the side of the road that was broke down keys in it. owner went to get help. cop stopped asked him what was wrong and he told them cops said car need to be move off the road more. so he got into the driver seat and let it roll on off . then the cop gave him a ticket for drunk driving. he faught it in court and won. but still had to pay court cost of 150.00 so don't ever get behind a wheel drunk
