It’s the time of year for holiday parties, New Year’s parties and just old fashion get-togethers. Here at BarWhiz we love a good party – you should have seen our office party last week, woo-wee! I don’t think those interns will be coming back next semester.
Anyway, we are all about the party, but we are also a strong advocate of drinking responsibly and of course always having a designated driver – whether you call a taxi, take public transit, or God forbid, call your Mom on Christmas Eve to come pick you up from the bar (long story) – drinking and driving is never a good idea. Not only do you run the risk of losing your license, but more importantly, when you get behind the wheel drunk you endanger the lives of everyone around you, including your own.
Although we fully support and encourage the designated driver program, we still like to take the time to poke fun at those who lost the bet, or the rock-paper-scissors toss, and ended up being the one to abstain for the night.
So without further adieu, here are the top 10 ways to tell who is the designated driver:
#10 – The only guy who doesn’t want to drive to the girl’s college, the Playboy Mansion or the Lost City of Gold.
#9 – The only guy in the whole bar who is drinking a Shirley Temple.
#8 – The only guy who keeps ordering virgin Vodka and Red Bulls.
#7 – The only guy who is not telling everyone how much they love them.
#6 – The only guy who hasn’t fallen off of his barstool at least once.
#5 – The only guy who isn’t trashing the bar.
#4 – They only guy who thinks it’s not a good idea to dance on the table.
#3 – The only guy who hasn’t passed out at the bar.
#2 – The only guy that is not trying to start a fight.
#1 – And the #1 way to tell who is the designated driver: They will always tell you.
All fun aside, having a designated driver is extremely important, and here’s an infographic from TotalDUI.com that explains why:
