    Stopped at a checkpoint tonight

    I was out tonight, had quite a few drinks but was in no way pissed. Hop in the car and head for home at around 1:00am. Coming up to the tollway entrance and there is a road block setup. Every car is being stopped. Oh bollocks......

    It went like this:

    Me: Turn the the air con up full blast to try to disperse the alcohol fumes, look desperately for mints in the glove box and fail. Car in front moves on and it's my turn.....
    Cop wearing facemask and helmet - looks like a stormtrooper with fluorecent body armour: Peers in drivers window and makes the 'open gesture'i
    Me: Opens the window.
    Stormtrooper: Steps back a bit when he sees its a farang.
    Stormtrooper: "Duum Lao mai?"
    Me: "Arai na?"
    Me: (Turns down the cd player)
    Stormtrooper: "Duum Lao mai?"
    Me: "Uh, no."
    Stormtrooper: "Dai." (Waves me on)

    Be careful.

    Are they looking for drunk drivers?

    Or something else?

    Just drunk drivers it seems. They didnt seem to be pulling any cars over to search them or anything.

    I love the fact that they still have their face mask on. Cops have told me in the past that the first sure sign is the smell when the lean in the window to talk to the driver.

    Yep, would have got me for sure if he wasnt wearing it! In no way was I pissed, but I was for sure over the 'legal limit'.

    I'm drunk again
    I'm drunk once again

    Feeling bad,
    all alone
    Since you left me
    on my own

    I'm drunk again
    I'm drunk again
    I'm drunk again
    I'm drunk again

    I had a real good wife
    Until she took her life
    And she left me all alone
    And I don't think I can go on

    I'm drunk again
    I'm drunk again
    I'm drunk again
    I'm drunk again
    News is what someone, somewhere is trying to suppress - everything else is just advertising.

    A police officer pulls over a speeding car. The officer says, ' I clocked you at 80 miles per hour, sir.'
    The driver says, 'Gee, officer I had it on cruise control at 60, perhaps your radar gun needs calibrating.'

    Not looking up from her knitting the wife says: 'Now don't be silly dear, you know that this car doesn't have cruise control.'

    As the officer writes out the ticket, the driver looks over at his wife and growls, 'Can't you please keep your mouth shut for once?'

    The wife smiles demurely and says, 'You should be thankful your radar detector went off when it did.'

    As the officer makes out the second ticket for the illegal radar detector unit, the man glowers at his wife and says through clenched teeth, 'Damit, woman, can't you keep your mouth shut?'

    The officer frowns and says, 'And I notice that you're not wearing your seat belt, sir. That's an automatic $75 fine.'

    The driver says, 'Yeah, well, you see officer, I had it on, but took it off when you pulled me over so that I could get my license out of my back pocket.'

    The wife says, 'Now, dear, you know very well that you didn't have your seat belt on. You never wear your seat belt when you're driving.'

    And as the police officer is writing out the third ticket the driver turns to his wife and barks, 'WHY DON'T YOU PLEASE SHUT UP??'

    The officer looks over at the woman and asks, 'does your husband always talk to you this way, Ma'am?'

    'Only when he's been drinking.'

    I am not one to wave my opinions in someone's face, and with all due respect Gerbil, drunk driving is 'evil'.

    It is like a unilateral declaration of war against random strangers; the consequences to innocent bystanders and their families is immediate and devastating.

    People can smoke, get fat, do drugs, go bareback, kill themselves any way they want; but they shouldnt take innocents along with them.

    Yeah, traffic is chaos, and people die all the time in accidents, and everyone knows being on the road has dangers, and we will all die someday, but...

    drunk driving is just plain wrong.

    quite true, much to my shame i admit having done it on more than one occasion, i know its not big and its not clever. but still happens sometimes.

    however, having a full time driver in this country is a godsend in that regards, a mate of mine, doesnt and he is bladdy stoopid abt going out on the piss and taking the car, i keep telling him...

    in fact, just last night there was this 74 year old indian dude at the bar last night, kept falling over the pool table, security would drag him away complaining and give him anohter beers - apparently he said he lives in bogor (about a 1.5 hour drive) and was planning to ride his 125cc bike home that night,,,, he couldnt walk!

    sometimes that happens to all of us, if you are so drunk that you can not walk, then the only way to get anywhere is to drive,, makes perfect sense..
