Dear Timothy Carr,
A lot of people drive drunk, but it takes a special kind of man (usually from Florida) to drive drunk inside. According to a report from Brooksville, Florida, you helped yourself to a cold one while inside a mega Walmart and were then caught driving your motorized cart erratically.
“The defendant did enter Walmart and select two packages of Daily Daiquiri and proceed to drink them in the store,” said the official police report. “The defendant was driving a Walmart owned electric cart. While driving the cart, the defendant knocked several items off the shelves causing damage to the items.”
Daiquiris? Well, you’re clearly rather cavalier when it comes to calorie counting.
I consider myself a fairly patient person. I grew up in a house with four siblings and three pets—I can put up with a lot. But if you want to set my foot tapping and my eyes rolling, just start complaining about your life.
Recently, for example, I caught up with an old friend. Last I talked to her was several months ago, and things weren’t going great—she wasn’t happy in her job, wasn’t thrilled to be single and felt an overall uneasiness about her life. I felt her pain, and was ready to listen, encourage, and lend a shoulder to cry on. But when we talked again, and I started the conversation with a simple, “How are you?” her immediate response was, “Meh.” What followed was a string of complaints reminiscent of our previous conversation—nothing had changed, and it seemed she hadn’t tried to make it.
You hate your job, but aren’t even looking for a new one? You want to meet men, but refuse to join an online dating site? You’re upset with your weight, but won’t change your diet and exercise? I can’t help you. Only you can. Keep reading »
Breathalyzers aren’t just for the po-po any more: In France, a new law requires every driver to carry two breathalyzers in their car. The intent to decrease the amount of drunk driving accidents by having drivers test themselves with breathalyzers before they decide to drive home inebriated. Keep reading »
If someone’s been drinking, you usually take away their car keys, not give them yours. Erin Brown did just that and now the resident of Hermitage, Tenn., faces 30 years in prison.
Back in December, Brown, 21, gave her car keys to her boyfriend, 23-year-old Trevor Bradshaw, thinking he was sober enough to drive. Bradshaw wasn’t and, as a result, he struck two pedestrians — Michael Brooksher, 22, and Tommy Allen, 23 — both of whom died, according to the Tennessean.
Bradshaw was charged with vehicular homicide and assault, and, if convicted, could serve a 30-year sentence. In an unusual twist, however, Brown faces the same charges as her boyfriend, even though she had just been a passenger during the accident. Read more…
