I have no tolerance for drunk driving. It's ridiculously selfish and you're basically saying you don't give a shit about anyone else.


Also, texting while driving is ******ed too. Almost everytime I see someone swerving all over the road they are doing something with their phone. So ****ing stupid.

This.

People who drink and drive should be executed on the spot.

This.

If he can see and move well enough to drive, he can see and move well enough to walk to his place.

If you can't pay for software, then find open source programs. There's tons of open source programs that are just as good as the expensive stuff. You've 100% no reason to pirate software (except for the fact that you're too lazy).

I used to drink and drive a lot. Like blacked out. I thought like OP says "it's really not a big deal", but then I realized that it isn't a big deal until it's a big damn deal. It doesn't take much to turn a quick drive home (drunk) into taking somebody's life because you had too much pride to ask for a ride/pay for a cab.

So yes. I was a jackass, and he's a jackass.

"Frowned upon"

Bit of an understatement

I'm sorry, ts, but texting while driving would probably prove to be as bad or worse than driving drunk. Already speaking on the telephone lenghtens your reaction time, now being even more distracted by having to type and look at the phone, it's a bad thing.

The majority of deadly accidents occur within 2 miles of your home, therefore hopefully that idiot kills himself soon driving drunk before he injures someone else.

I can't tolerate drink driving. If you drink walk home or get a cab, don't risk driving, even if you're a little under or barely over the limit.

No tolerance for texting while driving either. It pisses me off when I'm walking and see people texting while driving or messing around on their phones. A huge lorry was beginning to drift into the same lane as the coach I was on once until literally inches from touching the coach they turned the wheel the other way. And as we drive past the front of the lorry I look into his cabin - looking down at his iPod changing songs while he has a piece of food in the other hand, barely on the wheel, and using his legs to hold the balance of the wheel. ****ing ****!
