Too Drunk to Walk
While at Atlanta Motor Speedway today, I encountered a gentelman who was probably 30-40 years old. He was so heavily intoxicated that he could not walk and was depending on one of his buddies to keep him from falling down. The startling part of the encounter was that is was 9:30am. If you are too drunk to walk at 9:30 in the morning, I think it is time to seek professional help for an addiction. Sadly a couple of hours later EMS was hustling to assist a person who had fallen. Yep, you guessed it, this gentleman had fallen and broken a couple of ribs. I'm guessing his buddy's best efforts had fallen slightly short. Perhaps it would have been in the best interest of his self-preservation to have gone to bed instead of out manuvering thru the throngs of people in the infield.
