Welcome To The Bitchery

Dear Everyone: You're Right, and I'm a Wuss

[In response to post I made about my friend who WILL NOT quit driving drunk]. Sometimes it takes a huge group of people to yell the obvious thing at you. I want to thank everyone for sharing their stories and giving me a kick in the ass. I do not personally know anyone affected by drunk driving and I think the seriousness of the situation had not-quite-gotten-to-me.

Rest assured that next time I know she is drinking on the road, I will be calling the cops. I made note of her license plate number tonight. I'm going to try to stay anonymous; there are constantly people pulled over for DUIs on the side of the road around here - it would just appear to be her "luck" probably.

After posting, I saw another friend and mentioned that I was serious about this. She said she was in the same state I was in - ready to call that shit in and get her license taken away. Then we mused about putting one of those breathalyzer-starts in her car when she's not around.

THEN it occurred to me, WHY IS THAT NOT STANDARD ISSUE?
