So I get back into my car after lunch today, and see an old guy in a beat up Buick Century drinking Listerine.
Not swish and spit.
Now that shit is 54 proof, you can get drunk off it.
So I call 911.
The operator says in a real mocking tone… “You called 911 to report that someone is drinking Listerine in their car?”
“WELL I DON’T HAVE THE GOSHEN POLICE DEPARTMENT’S PHONE NUMBER, AND LISTERINE IS 40 PROOF, YOU CAN KILL SOMEONE JUST THE SAME AS IF YOU DRANK BEER THEN DROVE ON IT.”
So she takes my name and a description of the guy and the car, and as I’m talking to her I flagged down a Sherrif’s deputy, the guy already got out of the car, I’m not sure what was done if anything afterwards but what the fuck?
Hello, Listerine, NyQuil, Vanilla Extract even, they all have alcohol and they’re all dangerous in the wrong hands. If this guy (who appeared to be in his 60s) was drunk and killed someone later on, who knows what could have happened if I didn’t call it in?
Worst part is my fucking taxes are paying for this shit. I’d seriously love to drop this bitch off at an AA meeting so she can see just what “Listerine” can do. Fucking twit.
