Very few things in the world get me angry. I mean, reaaaaally angry. Where I could literally hit someone or cry with tears of anger. Where I shake with anger pumping through my veins and feel like a loss of control could happen. That kind of anger is rare. But it does come out.
Like when people drive drunk.
Right now at this time of year there is no excuse. In fact, I'm gonna come right out and say there's no excuse at any time of the year to get behind the wheel intoxicated. You might as well have a loaded gun with the safety off in a room full of people. But with car driving services based soley on donation, extra taxis and sober and willing friends it's a testament to selfish behaviour at it's finest.
It's arrogant to think you're not going to cause the accident. Cause maybe you won't tonight. But how many people have given statements in handcuffs saying the same to a room full of angry lovers and families. You're no different. Get off you're goddamned pedestal.
Yes, you may be bigger but alcohol is alcohol and if you drink too much, then congratufuckinglations. You're then drunk. You will not sober up in twenty minutes with a glass of water. You know better than that and if you don't you're ignorant as well as selfish.
How many people have to die or get hurt from the actions of others. And what pisses me off the most is that it's completely avoidable and preventable. You're stubborn, so you drive. You feel fine, so you drive. Pretty much you don't care if you hurt yourself or others, so you drive.
You're a 'good drunk driver'? I ought to slap you across the face for spouting such vile words.
I have seen the consequences of drunk driving at it's finest. A friend who took her last breaths while a driver swore he didn't see her there and thought the bump was a pylon. Guess that's why he backed up twice over her. Going to her funeral when we were supposed to going to the winter prom. Hearing that the man's wife left him and he was on suicide watch while in jail. The cell he was only in for five years.
I have no respect for the people that decide. Willingly, decide to do this. I can't and I won't. I won't be a part of this anymore. This game where we both pretend you're not drunk and I'm supposed to look the other way. No throwing in my towl and I'm done.
I don't care if you hate me. I'd rather you hate me than kill someone else. So in the future I will be the one dialing the police's number if you grab your keys. I will be the one to announce that you're drunk to anyone who will listen. I will not drink with you if driving is involved and I will not accept bullshit excuses that sound like an adolescent trying to get out of curfew.
If you act like a spoiled child, I will treat you as one.
Because I love my friends. And I choose not to lose any more to drunk driving, even if it is their own.
