Bah, Stupid People
You know, nothing pisses me off more than to hear people bragging up their boozing as if it makes them something special. Even people telling me I should drink don't piss me off as much as that.
Last night was the "wonderful" New Year's Eve. Basically, it's one of the many excuses that people with nothing better to do and no real way of having a good time without chemicals use to get drunk off their asses and annoy the rest of us who do have more than half a brain. Frankly, I'm sick and tired of people thinking it's cool or something fun to do, or that people will like them and have respect for them. Listen up, kiddies, if your friends only like you because you drink, they're not real friends. Same goes for everything else--pot, sex, sniffing glue...
What's even dumber than that is when people actually drive home after they've been "partying." The hell do you think you are doing that? It's bad enough to take yourself down, but to risk taking down others who were smart enough to avoid the damn shit is just ridiculous. Use your heads a little for crying out loud :P. How would you like to be responsible for killing someone's loved one all because you don't think? How would you be able to live knowing that, if it weren't for your being "cool," somebody would still have their mother, father, brother, sister, or child? It's stupid and bloody selfish. It's also pathetic that you have no regard for anybody but yourself.
I saw on the news earlier that the cops around here raided a party and arrested minors in possesion along with the stupid bastards who furnished them with alcohol. Too bad everybody out drinking didn't get hauled in, especially the idiot children who think it makes them more adult. News flash, it doesn't. The fact that you think it does just shows your complete lack of maturity. Maybe when you grow up past the "I need everybody to like me" stage, you'll realize that all of this was a mistake. It's one thing if somebody actually has a drink or two and is responsible with it. It's another when somebody thinks it helps define who they are and figures everybody wants to hear about their escapades. To quote my grandfather, who was an alcoholic: "There's nothing more boring than someone drinking to someone who isn't." How true. Learn it and love it, morons, it ain't gonna change.
Tell me, what is the joy of getting shit-faced, puking all over yourself, and waking up sick as all hell? How in the world has that enriched your lives and made you a more likeable person? How does it make you a better person than who you are when you're not drinking? If somebody can actually give good reason for it, hell, I'll marry Bobby Flay. :P
