DUI....NOT THIS TIME

Post  fredvon4 on Tue Nov 20, 2018 3:46 pm

This might save you the cost and embarrassment of being arrested for DUI.

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 "social session" with family or friends.
Well this year, it happened to me.

I was out for the evening to a party and had more than several margaritas coupled with a bottle of rather nice red wine.
It was held at a great Mexican restaurant.

Although 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 lucky I was to have chosen to take a taxi.

The real surprise to me was I had never driven a taxi 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.

If you want to borrow it, give me a call.

Perhaps across cultural boundaries the humour lost its touch, but I got it. Very Happy However, in reality, the law enforcement officers have pulled over semis and other commercial vehicles, so a little weaving within or outside lane never helped anyone. Shocked lol!

I carry one of these cards in my vehicle documents in case of a pull over.

So I plagiarized the account of the taxi ride

and to be true...I binge watch TAXI two or three times a week on HULU
Jim, Louie, Elane, Alex, Latka, Tony Danza, the whole gang makes me smile

Truth is I still drink too much but no longer smoke three packs a day

I stopped drinking and driving well over twenty years ago.... in my younger days a local cop would escort me home or to mu on base quarters...around 1985 these courtesy halted and the Army would kill your career over a DUI

I am glad this bit of humor touched many of you all....made me giggle when I first read it
