The designated driver: Urban legend?


Designated drivers do not exist, I'm positive of this fact. Sure someone may occasionally pack about 8-10 people in their Escort and drop them off at the bar, but this hardly qualifies. Have you or anyone you know actually driven a bunch of drunken maniacs around for an entire night out on the town? Fuck no, because that would be insane. I love the commercial where there are four dudes hanging out (in really well lit, very yuppie looking establishments) and one dude flips the other guy the keys to the car, they all kind of laugh and pat the one dude who's driving on the shoulder. What alternate universe is this commercial set in? If this happened in real life bad shit would go down because the dude who you flipped the keys to would definitely not be a designated driver because they don't exist you may be able to convince him to drive later but he'd probably be on his eighth or ninth gin-and-tonic and have a DUI or two under his belt so flipping him the keys would be a pretty dick move and soon afterwards a fight would ensue.

Anyway just interested if you have ever been a DD or know anyone else who has, for one night. Also how the fuck is Odoul's beer still around? All the beer taste w/o those pesky mind-altering effects.

I've tried it. It wasn't easy. But, by about beer #4 or 5, it became much easier to deal with. It wasn't really a big deal and I'm proud to do my civic duty.

I don't know, but that pic has to be sarcastic. She can't actually be drinking Odoul's.
