I'm sorry but

No, I'm actually not. The situation: Got to my nasty urine-scented Metra station this morning, right around 7am, as usual. Today, there were six teenagers drinking beer and laying around in the parking lot. Literally. One of them was laying in the drive way. At 7am. God damn right I called the police. WTF. Not sure when Chicago became an open container city, or when 7am sounded like a good time to throw a party in a public parking lot. I actually tried to call 311 first. They then told me no, I needed to call 911. SO I did. I was merely giving them the heads up that not one city block away from the largest police stations in the city, there's a little drinky drinky party going on that they might want to check out. Everyone on the train seemed pretty incensed about it to. SO Get to work, post on teh fb that this happened. AND GOT BERATED FOR IT. Ok, now I finally understand that many many many people present totally false bull shit versions of themselves either on teh fb, or on their blogs (you know who you are) or both. Whatever. FINE You are SOOOOO much cooler than I could ever be!! Being consistently the same person is passe, I guess. BUT Don't go telling me that I'm old, or a fuddy duddy for calling the cops on these cobags. OR telling me that I was just like them. Yeah, so I drank when I was not 21, I fully and freely admit that. Did I do it at 7am, right out in the open? A block away from a police station? Um. No. No I didn't, and I'm not ashamed to admit that. I was a LOT smarter than that.

I like to get drunk as much as anybody, but there is a time and a place for it, and 7AM in a metropolitan transit hub is neither the time nor the place. You did the right thing, what if that kid passed out in the driveway had been run over? What if somebody decided to roll the drunks, or otherwise victimize them? What if they started fights?

Yeah, I like to get drunk, but I am a responsible citizen.

I agree... there's a time and a place, and then there's stupid.

I recall waiting all night in a line for a job with Yale custodial services*. Me and my fiends played wine 99.

* You got to be in the Union, get paid like 5$/hour, and get overtime! (Working in the herbarium was like half that. And no overtime.

Yep. We know who we are!
