Something to tell your 20 somethings

This morning I was leaving at 6:30 AM, quiet neighborhood, a loop that runs up the hill. Get to the corner and there is a car sitting askew against the curb, a lady standing on the sidewalk with her dog talking to the occupants in the car. She waves me up so I pull up behind the car and step out.

There is a young lady in the car trying to start the car, male passenger passed out in the passengers seat. The lady walking the dog is freaking out so I tell her to start walking away. Talk to the female driver and tell her, look, you guys look like you are wasted. She immediately goes off saying the lady is a bitch and they are just trying to get home but the car won't start. I tell her the car isn't in park, so it won't turn over, but I will follow her home assuming she lives in the neighborhood. Her response, "you aren't fucking following me." She puts the car in park and starts it up, luckily she can't get it into gear after starting. I tell her she has two options, I try to park the car for her and they call someone up, or I follow her and if she goes past a stop sign a quarter mile down the hill then I call the cops. Her response, 'who the fuck am I going to call Ghostbusters? and you aren't fucking following me.

The lady with the dog says she is going home to call the cops, so I just sit there and wait while the young lady tries to move a car without being able to get it into gear. Cops show up and cuff both of them.

Lesson to be taught, if you are completely trashed, have run your car off the road, understand that you are in a bad situation. Use some common sense, take help as offered and realize that the option of driving home is off the table, but you can get out of the car, have someone get the car parked properly and either walk home or call a friend to get you home.

1. Not really an age thing -

I've seen folks much older who didn't have the sense to recognize when they were too wasted to drive.

2. Rufus,

I would be scared to do what you did. People can get nasty and physical. Some of them can have guns.

I might call the cops first and not intervene personally.

3. "You call an Uber or I call the cops. Have a nice day!"
