More rain today, in sunny skies, very strange,, but he skies are darkening now,, still at 100% humidity..

A nice day at work, worked a little over..
had a nice veggie and chicken wrap for my lunch,, lots of nice cold, filtered water, and up and down the basement stairs doing laundry.

We are going to start our new list for vacation in August.. 59 days until then..

I do have a quick rant,, any opinions are welcome,,

A coworker is very upset that her son's best friend who was home on leave before deployment, was killed after a car accident last week. The man was 20 years old, drove drunk with THREE passengers, two that were SOBER!He blew a (are you sitting down?) 3.5 on the breathalyszer THE NEXT DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
In the state of Michigan, 0.08 is illegally drunk. that reading is about equal to blowing into a 150 proof tequila bottle!!!!!!!!!!
These are adults, no teens and this guy actually was deemed smart enough to brandish a weapon for our Armed Forces!!
I have zero tolerance for humans who are so selfish that they choose to aim a one-ton weapon at others with no control...

I am sorry for his family, but I will always stick my my mantra:STUPIDITY KILLS! Not always the stupid one,either!! His wife and the two others in the car are in various hospitals across our state for special life saving techniques and surgeries, ,,
TWO sober people actually got in this car with him already at the wheel!!!!!!!!!!

AM I a ditzy paranoid old fogey, or is this now right?????? To top the whole thing off, none of them had any insurance or jobs, so guess who foots this bill? We have no-fault insurance in MI, so up go my rates,, with 42 years with no accidents. Another item just for giggles is: His wife is angry because somebody else didn't TAKE HIS KEYS AWAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
SHE GOT IN THE CAR NEXT TO HIM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! S*O*B*E*R*!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I know I am neurotic when I realize that this sent my BP up for two days!!!!!!! I never met any of these people but egads, could they scrape up a whole brain between the four of them??????
Okay rant over, feel free to add your fifty dollars worth.. ah, I feel a little less stressed now...

    As is everyone else, I am sad for his family. There is enough true tragedy in the world that I don't understand why people are willing to be party to self-inflicted tragedy. My mom always said that something like this isn't a true tragedy. Yes, it's unspeakably sad for the family, friends, etc. however I've always thought of a "tragedy" as something outside of our control. Terrorist attacks, tornadoes, cancer...that is tragedy.

I guess it was my turn to rant.

    I am sorry for the mother but I agree with you...I am sick of people weaving all over the road...texting, or dialing or drunk or high...if it is just them that will suffer it is different but it is usually innocent people like kids!

Have a GREAT day!

    My condolences.
How could a breathalyzer be done if he was killed?
Why didn't the wife or the other sober person take the keys?

The attitude of 'victim' rather than 'responsible person' is too rampant in our society today.
