Seriously. I know you’re probably scoffing or chuckling at that title, but it’s Christmas and people tend to forget their senses around this time of the year. In the last two weeks, I have had to go to more Christmas parties than I cared to. I did have fun at most of them, but there was one thing that I noticed: people just didn’t care that much when it came to drinking and driving!
These are people who have stable and excellent day jobs. These are intelligent people who look down on those who may not be as smart as they are. But after each party, the story was the same. Tipsy guys and gals would head on to the parking lot and drive unsteadily home. Some were drunker than the others. Some were merely tipsy. It doesn’t matter, though, once you’ve gotten enough alcohol in your blood stream, you’re a danger on the road.
We all know that, but how come there are still a lot of people who just go ahead and drive? I can’t answer that because I really don’t drive (drunk or not), but if you ever find yourself in that situation in the near future, please, let your common sense prevail. I don’t need to tell you all about the rationale behind NOT drinking and driving. You’re smart – you already know that. I think it’s more about making a commitment to make the right choice when the time comes. Have a Merry and SAFE Christmas!
