    Had a party this weekend and a few people that came also brought their kids.

    My one friend was pounding beers all day from what I saw. He planned to drive home with his 5 year old and 3 year old in the backseat. I pulled him aside so I wouldn't embarrass him to say I didn't think he should drive. He says, "it's cool. I know my cutoff point is ten beers. I only had 9." I still didn't like letting him leave so I texted his wife. She came and took the kids home, he drove himself.

    He is now pissed at me but I don't really care. I feel good about what I did.

    I can't imagine driving with my kids in the car after even 1 beer, let alone 9. Btw I think 9 was BS anyway. He had to be in double digits imo.

    No matter how many drinks I've had, I always feel safe to drive (of course, that doesn't meean it's safe for me to drive, I just feel that it is)

    I hate to sound like a square, but this is the only correct answer. Fuck impaired drivers.

    IPA's or Coors Light?

    IPA, no. Coors Light, my cutoff would be an 18 pack.

    A lawyer friend of mine explained to me that you should never have any. Once you have one, you have put yourself in the category of 'suspected' and some localities will pull any shennanigans they can to get the DUI...Big money maker here in NJ. And it also gets up and coming cops a nice feather in their hat

    Your friend is an asshole. For me personally 2 drinks over at least that many hours.
    But if you're carting around your kids, zero

    I never drink and drive... Not even one..

    I could have 1 bud light, but what would be the point?


    You did the right thing.. Most people are too much of a pussy to say something... When it comes to someone that's drunk they have NO inhibitions so they THINK they're fine,but not..
