I went to my 5 year highschool reunion last weekend, and I was really excited to see how all my old class-mates had grown and matured into well-adjusted young adults. Apparently nothing really changes though.
classmate, finishing up a boring story: “…but that was when my license was suspended, so I didn’t drive anyway.”
me: “How did you lose your license?”
classmate: “High range DUI.”
me: “How embarrassing.”
classmate: “Nah, it was fucken great. Mum dropped me at the pub every night so I could still get pissed!”
me: “I’m so glad this experience has humbled you and made you wiser. The legal system should be proud.”
