I would like to share an experience with you all, to do with drinking
Some of us know people who have had brushes with the authorities on
their way home from a night out. Well, I for one have done something
The other night I was out for a dinner and a few drinks with some
friends. After having far too many wine and knowing full well I was
wasted, I did something Ive never done before. I took a bus home. I
arrived home safely and without incident, which was a real surprise, as
I have never driven a bus before.

Thumbs WAY ^up^. A local watering hole has a shuttle. Pick up and
deliver. The thing runs all night and when it is time to go home,
usually still well under control, but enough beer to blow over, the
shuttle is already warm. Sometimes people we know might climb on at
the same time, small talk, keep us up to date with neighbours.... and
no smoking allowed. And free. The only pub in the area that pours
Alexander Keith IPA on tap... The atmosphere is a bit industrial/
One of the local taxi companies tried to sue the owner of the pub/
shuttle because of unfair competition. The area around the pub didn't
have a DUI arrest in a 5km circle in two years, while the same can't
be said for other neighbourhood pubs. So the city thought it fair to
charge a taxi license for the shuttle. About 50 people tossed enough
money in the jar to pay for the license AND a year's worth of
insurance. That is how we roll. One segment in the argument dealt with
the fact that taxis, later in the evening, smell like vomit and
cigarettes.... "clean that up and we might use you more often..."
