Why Risk It? You’re Gonna Get Caught
What in this world makes a person think it is okay to get into the drivers seat of a car once they’ve been drinking? More so, when your job, no, your life is dependent on behaving and not getting in trouble, why would you risk something this stupid?! This is what I’ve been thinking for the last few days. Over the weekend, John had not one, but two of his soldiers get DUI’s. And, they are most likely being kicked out of the Army for it.
One of the guys is someone I actually know, and he never seemed to me someone who would be that reckless. He only was caught because he slightly went over the center line on the road. He was off post, which means we aren’t sure how much trouble he’s getting in, but the Army may still kick him. It’s sad, because he is a super cool guy, and he was leaving Kentucky in November for Washington and also switching his jobs in the military.
The other guy, I don’t know personally. However, I actually am hoping he gets kicked out of the Army. He was on post, he’s underage, and he was at one of John’s soldiers houses with a few of his other soldiers. They all are in trouble because they are all responsible for him leaving. And, letting an underage kid drink. :-(( He was caught driving 60MPH on a 25MPH road… Someone could have been killed from this stupidity! Also, on the way to pick him up, John saw like 20 deer, so this guy could have killed himself if he had hit one! Shake my head….
These occurrences happened over the 4 day weekend John had, one on Saturday night, the second on Sunday night. Both times, John got calls in the middle of the night from the Military Police (MPs) and he had to pick up his soldiers from jail. So, our weekend sucked, sleep-wise, and I think John was a bit more stressed out than he showed me.
I just really needed to rant about this, I just don’t understand why people drink and drive, when like I said, their job, and life depends on not being that stupid.
