Rules of Boozing

  1. The 86 rules of boozing.


    Which is your favorite?

    Any rule you would add to the list?

    My favorite:

    5. Buying someone a drink is five times better than a handshake.

    Not sure agree on this one:
    2. Always toast before doing a shot.

    Too many want to make a big show out of doing the shot as in look at me. It takes on
    an amateur quality. I much prefer a simple tap of the shot glass and perhaps a simple "cheers" .
    Have never advanced to "salute'

    Always buy the first round.
  4. I agree about the toasts before a shot. I can't remember the last time anyone made a toast. Agreed protocol in my circles is raise your shot and wait till everyone doing a shot has done the same - then down the hatch.

    Person who is expensing drinks to his company pays the tab would be a rule in my book.

    Rule one: There are no rules.

    I don't toast anything. If I'm drinking, it's because I'm depressed.

    Disappointed that Rule No. 1 wasn't: Do Not Fucking Drive.

    I especially like these:
    45. It's okay to drink alone.
    55. If you think you might be slurring a little, then you are slurring a lot. If you think you are slurring a lot, then you are not speaking English.
    75. Beer makes you mellow, champagne makes you silly, wine makes you dramatic, tequila makes you felonious.
    82. There’s nothing wrong with drinking before noon. Especially if you’re supposed to be at work.

    I'd also like to add in today's world: If you are drinking and like twitter, put your phone somewhere out of reach.

    One of Jimmy Buffet's rules would be germane:

    3. You do not want to go to jail.

    Warm beer is better than no beer (learned at various high school parties when I stashed my goodies in the fridge)
    Free beer is best of all.
    Playing drinking games once you have graduated college is a rookie move.
    Playing drinking games at a bar is reason enough to get 86'd.
    To adequately assess a bar, order a martini.
