Surviving your holiday DUI

A few helpful hints for all of us.....

Before you are asked to do a field soberity test they will ask you a few questions.

1.) Do you have any knee problems? - Your answer is always yes...You have shreaded your ACL's and it is hard for you to put a weight on them...this will make your balance tests easier.

2.) Have you taken anything else tonight? YES You are trying to quit smoking and have been chewing nicorette like crazy. Substitution gum can interfer with the results on the breathalyzer so this can give you wiggle in court on a borderline result

If you are going to get one

Don't be a dick head. Be nice. Be polite. If you can cry it might help. Remember if life was fair you would probably have had a 100 of them.

Get a lawyer, Apply for a temp licence right away, make sure you understand the reason they pulled you over and ask for a copy of the police video to be sent to your house....(Do this when you are leaving jail and have sobered up..Don't do it when you are in the back of the cop car they will put you in the worst cell with the other smart asses) If you have an opertunity to get off it is most likely in the reason they pulled you over.

But the best advise I can give you is too just take a cab....you can park overnight downtown for $4...it is a lot cheaper!!!

I did a while back over labor day weekend:( But I found that talking about it helps instead of just feeling guilty leading to feeling Shamed and the coming to the conclusion that you are a bad person.....

I am a good person who sometimes does bad things...(At least that is what my affirmation in my bathroom says..lol)

Dude, the team bought me a bottle of "Level" vodka, awesome man, I highly recommend it. It makes the shit I usually drink taste like paint thinner.
