Personal Drinking and Driving Experience

With the New Year's Eve Holiday upon us I would like to share a personal experience with my friends and family about drinking and driving.

As you may know, some of us have been known to have brushes with the authorities from time to time on the way home after a "social session" out with friends. Well, two days ago I was out for an evening with friends and had several cocktails followed by some rather nice red wine. Feeling jolly I still had the sense to know that I may be slightly over the limit. That's when I did something that I've never done before - I took a cab home.

Sure enough on the way home there was a police road block but since it was a cab they waved it past. I arrived home safely without incident. This was a real surprise as I had never driven a cab before, I don't know where I got it and now that it's in my garage I don't know what to do with it.

Pick up some fares and defray some of your holiday spending ;-)

Hey mar52, I'll be shopping for taxi decals for my car tomorrow.  Glad to know it works!

Classic!  I've heard it many times over the years and it never gets old.  Thanks for sharing.  Happy New Year!

While taking the tour of the Jack Daniel's distillery several years ago, the tour guide asked if anyone knew the reason that Jack Daniel's comes in squarish bottles.  The reason, it prevents them from rolling around on the front seat.
