That isn't sarcasm you are detecting. It is seething anger.
My uncle and his 5 children and wife were hit by a drunk driver coming home from a holiday party many years ago. All of them suffered life long injuries, some have metal plates in their head from where their skull was crushed, others have metal pins in their legs and artificial hip joints. Still others have pins in their backs. The children were all under 10 years old at the time and are now well into their 50s and 60s. They each have required ongoing surgeries throughout their life from the damage that drunk driver did to them.
I have absolutely no sympathy for anyone who drives while drunk no matter what their excuse is! Read your last message again, Sylvia. It is full of excuses for him, right along side of your stating that yes he was drinking again and yes he stupidly took the chance and drove. Drinking and stupidity are not good companions. Stop making excuses for him. He has a problem. You are contributing to his problem by making excuses for him. Does he need to hit a family of 5 small children before you both wake up to his poor judgement and seek help rather than excuses?
Need something a little more current? Last year my brother's step son was driving drunk with his best friend as his passenger. He lost control of his car and ended up in a drainage ditch. It took the jaws of life to get them out. My nephew's legs were pulverized and he has pins for bones now. His friend is a vegetable. I'll let the pictures speak for themselves. His friend trusted his judgement and made excuses for him too. He lives with the guilt of knowing what he did to his friend. Luckily there was no one else involved in the accident.
When your boyfriend drives while drinking it isn't just his driver's license he puts in jeopardy. Please think about it.
