One For The Road


This was a common saying back in the day. People would be trying to leave a party, but no, “come on, one more for the road.” People would stay, there weren’t the drinking and driving laws there are today, people were driving half tanked all the time!

There is a drunk driving commercial circulating, I didn’t watch it, but I’ve enclosed the link. I don’t need to watch it, I don’t want to watch it.

A very close family friend was killed by a drunk driver who then fled the scene. He didn’t even care enough about a son, a father and grandfather to even stop to check on him. This is the most cowardly and disgusting act, I truly want that man to die. I’m not Christian, I want him to die in the most painful of ways.

This Christmas season, please ignore those that say “one for the road.” Please remember that everyone is a son or daughter. Everyone has someone who will want to hunt you down and hurt you in the most painful of ways.

Everyone. Don’t let it be me, please, I can’t do that again

  1. I am so sorry!
    Its sad that people don’t get this simple warning.


  2. It’s not worth it. But he wasn’t thinking about anyone else. When that drunk driver left his party, when he drove off without facing what he’d done… he was only thinking about himself. Drinking is a symptom of this selfishness that ails our world.


  3. A painful and timely warning or wake up call for us all. Drink and driving should not be be combined together. My deepest condolences for you lost.
