Righteous Indignation

I was the designated driver for the office party tonight. I happily gave up my free drink tickets, ASSUMING (makes an ASS out of U and MI) that the bar provided free pop/water for designated drivers. Um. No. Couldn't get water in a glass with ice. It was bottled water at 1.75 a crack. What the hell?! AND it was ladies' night, which meant certain drinks were a dollar. Could I get water or pop for a dollar? No. What kind of sick crap IS that?!

Instead of getting pissed, I happily forked over the dough for the said bottled water. Why get all worked up over something like that? I would much rather spend money on water than choose to drink. But Tami found out. HA! I didn't have to get pissed for myself, she did enough for me! Manager of the bar, assistant manager, etc. all get involved and I got to drink free pop all night.

But seriously. How stupid is that?

Hi. First time to your blog for me. I'm a "recoverer," too. My clean date is December 7th, 2006. Congratulations on your success.

I don't drink. I'm always amazed that bars charge for non-booze, especially those who are DDs.

I'm glad they gave you the pop for free. It should be a rule, as much as they don't want people to drink and drive, the bars ought to let the drivers drink free. I mean, seriously, there's no way you'd get me to go to a bar and hang out whie you got shitfaced if I had to buy my own soda. What's the upside, exactly, when I could be home with my feet up, a dog on my lap, a bowl of popcorn and a great movie? *lol*

Good for your friend for getting all up in the grills of the managers! You should have gotten anything you wanted for free, girlie, being as fantastic as you are. And also? Soda is like a penny to make, so that they would charge you for high fructose corn syrup and seltzer is beyond me.

That's nuts! Glad you got some free drinks though.

That's crazy, I can't believe you couldn't even get water. But I'm glad they sorted it out!

Good for you!

That's crazy. I've never understood that... it's not going to eat into their profit margin that much. Yeesh. Get a clue, bar managers!!
