Drink Driving (put the at thingy in here) Christmas

Post by Emma.Christie »

Sorry if this has already been posted - I took a quick shufty and couldn't see it. received via one of my colleagues the other day (just after our works Christmas Do!)


I would like to share a personal experience with my friends and family about drinking and driving.
This might save you the cost and embarrassment of being arrested.
As you know, people have been known to have unexpected brushes with the authorities from time to time, often on the way home after a session with family or friends.
Well, this year, it happened to me. I was out last night and had more than a few beers and also a few cocktails.
Although quite relaxed, I still had the common sense to know I was slightly over the limit. That's when I did something I've never done before...I took a taxi home.
On the way home there was a police roadblock, but since it was a taxi they waved it past and I arrived home safely without incident.
These roadblocks can be anywhere and I realized how sensible/lucky I was to have chosen to take a taxi.
This was a real surprise to me, because I had never driven a taxi before. I don't know where I got it, it's now out the front of the house & I don't know what to do with it.
So, anyway, if you want to borrow it, just give me a call

Have to wonder why this is called "Drink Driving (put the at thingy in here) Christmas" though...... .scratch .scratch

There is actually a word that can be used instead of the 'at thingy'... it's quite a short word.... commonly pronounced 'at'....

Ba Humbug! ;)

Tomorrow - your reward for being safe today...
