People laugh about it.
I thought I was the only one to see someone do it.
Until I heard someone talking about it at work.
It's name is catchy.
It sounds funny when you say it.
It may even be funny if you're the one doing it.
Lucky for you, you won't remember in the morning.
Your victim will certainly remember, if they were sober.
They may even change their opinion of you.
They may have found out more about you than they really wanted.
They may have had a spouse sitting right next to them when it happened.
It happened to me once.
I was minding my own business when it happened.
My phone rang.
The voice on the other end was a
I was actually a little flattered.
To think, someone out there besides my husband thought I was
It was a bet.
Apparently, I'm worth $10,000.
I am, really.
I was invited out.
I respectfully reminded this "friend" that I'm married, and no, I'm not that kind of person.
A few minutes later another coworker called to fill me in.
The original caller was
He had won some money in a poker game.
He must not be that good of a gambler.
He gambled on being able to sleep with me.
I guess he was so drunk he forgot about my husband.
And my morals.
I've heard, and seen more stories lately of people Drunk Dialing.
It's not pretty my friends.
I believe we could attribute the rise in popularity to the increase of cell phone use...after all, they don't even have to remember phone numbers anymore. (Why the hell not? Cell phones are to blame for everything else that's wrong with the world today...I'm just saying...)
I think we should start a movement.
Sort of goes along with having a Designated Driver.
If you've had more than 3 drinks, hand over your phone to the designated dialer.
If you don't have one (a DD), just put your phone in the car, with the keys and lock the doors.
Make sure you have a ride home first though.
And a spare set of keys (or roadside assistance).
If you're a friend who's not drinking (or not drunk yet) and you see someone who's about to drunk dial, please, please, please, stop them.
You could save them from a ton of embarassment.
You could also save the person who they're dialing from a rude awakening if it's late.
This goes for texting while drunk too.
This concludes my Public Service Announcement.
I'll leave you with a picture:
