It is people like you that think people can't make good decisions at anytime after consuming alcohol that piss me off.
Driving that close to being over the legal limit was a great decision.
I am still an adult and still able to make good decisions. The fact that I didn't get any more drinks in the last hour is one. The fact that I hung out a little outside of the bar talking is another. I am conscientious person even when I drink, regardless of what you or a couple of other retards think.
Good job, you were conscientous enough to get away with it.
I wasn't saying don't judge me for what I was doing. But you assume I am unable to make a logical decision while having had a few drinks hours before I got behind the wheel. Don't judge my decision making process, regardless of when it happens. Because like the original post pointed out, I am not like everyone else and blanket assumptions such as the one you, Xitup, and the Negation made aren't warranted, welcomed, or correct.
Making logical decisions isn't really the issue. Some drunk retard stumbles in front of your car on his walk home and you've got alcohol in you that shit slows down your reaction time( I don't care how good you feel, thats a fact). Having had a few drinks can be the difference between killing someone or not.
I don't have to be 100% for the ride home, on fact a rarely am 100% at 2 am regardless of whether or not I had something to drink. Your problems with alcohol dwarf mine and I am sorry to hear that you went through that in your life. I rarely drink and I had a good time with some friends. If you want to wish me off to jail go right ahead, but I will not sit here and agree with you. I am surprised that you are in agreement with the lawmakers that .08 should be the standard and not looked at in any other fashion.
I don't wish you off to jail, I wish whatever it would take to make you drop this insane attitude towards drinking and driving you have could happen to you though.
I don't think people should be allowed to drive with any alcohol in their system, for the same reasons you don't agree with the way it is currently. Alcohol affects people in different ways.
I am fine after only a few drinks. If an adult person can't do anything after drinking at all, then why do we have it available to us? IF that makes me sound retarded in your eyes, so be it. I assure you that it does not hurt my feelings for an outspoken tool such as yourself to think any less of me. Or criticize my decision making abilities because well, I made an okay decision afterall. I did okay in the eyes of Johnny Law and I am not mad at them for doing their job. I am mad that I blew a .079 and felt no effects of alcohol when I got behind the wheel. I honestly was stone cold sober. For the three of you to miss that point is amazing. Everyone else seemed to comprehend it just fine. Especially as much as the two from the UK nitpick posts.
Nobody is missing your point. What is this shit you are talking about decision making? Do you think people who get drunk and drive think o themselves "No actually, I'll hit this person/flip my car, that'd be a laugh."
I don't care if you could drink Motorhead under the table and operate a spacecraft, being that close to the legal limit and then thinking to yourself "Well, clearly the law is wrong, I feel totally great to drive. How ridiculous that law is." Does make you sound quite possibly mentally retarded.
