Default Liquor Etiquette

Let's here people's ideas on drinking behaviour.
And no, I am not drinking or drunk now, but going out for Patio later.

1. Time - When is it ok to start drinking?
2. Day - tied into above, does the day or event matter in the time continuum?
3. Amount - how much does one drink in public before it becomes...an issue.
4. Lunch Time - If you are out for lunch is it ok to drink if you will be going back to work (obviously if you are a crane operator the answer should be NO)
5. Outdoors - should we be able to drink outdoors, say at the Fireworks Festival or under a cherry blossom tree having a picnic.
6. Age - at what age is college style drinking no longer "cool" (I know, it never was cool but youz get my point!).
7. Have you ever been hospitalized for excessive alcohol consumption?
8. Do you drink and drive...no one will admit to having too much (maybe?) but I'm talking 2-3 glasses of wine at dinner.

Please answer each 8 in your responses, serious answers...even though they may be funny..

1) Happy hour starts at 4
2) If you hate your life drink more, day doesn't matter
3) Until you're happy again, hence happy hour
4) Chances are mornings suck so lunch time is the time to get happy, drink more
5) Yes, outdoors is a time of happiness, they allow it everywhere else it's just the RCMP are pansies and don't have enough tazers to give all their cops
6) Hypas age
7) No
8) If you can open your eyes you can drive. Riding, absolutely not.

1. Time - anytime
2. Day - see above
3. Amount - depends who you are, 3 is cool with me, but maybe someone else can only handle 1 before they become an issue.
4. Lunch Time - 1-2 why not, if you work in an office does it matter.
5. Outdoors - lovely idea but too many douches will wreck
6. Age - College drinking is never cool, only cause you can't savour any of the fine spirits your drinking, your only drinking to get trashed and while I did like doing that, the next day was NEVER fun. Alcoholics know best, keep it at a certain point all day long
7. HAHAHA lightweights (no)
8. obviously no one will admit but everyone has on occasion, no it's not right but it's still done.

1. Noon. It's noon somewhere.
2. Weekends > Weekdays.
3. Three servings should be max, or one per hour in a social setting, unless it's that kind of party.
4. No. Personally alcohol pwnz my productivity unless I'm writing an article.
5. Of course. Until people like hypa ruin for us all.
6. Early twenties.
7. No.
8. Hell no. No more than one, and an hour before going anywhere. Additionally, I find beer easier to judge amounts than wine.

One note, these are personal answers, not asking you to tell me what the general consensus are.

My answers:
1. Time - 5-6pm or when dinner starts except for the odd occasion like today where I will get on my patio drinking to ring in Spring, before winter comes back tomorrow.

2. Day - I think on weekends I would be more likely to have liquor during the day. I never get drunk before 6 though...except for on holidays or on the very odd occasion. I just don't feel right being drunk at 2pm.

3. Amount - I will almost never have more than 6 drinks in a given session. 2-3 get's me happy then I will usually nurse the rest until it comes time to leave. Unless I am driving, then I drink the first two quickly and nurse one more if it is a long night.

4. Lunch time - I think it should be a cool thing. A glass of wine with a nice lunch, this is the time to truly enjoy a good drink without the time/mindset of getting liquored.

5. Outdoors - I had some great times abroad drinking at festivities. Hot Sake in the snow in an Onsen in northern Japan, drinks under the Cherry Blossoms with friends making fun of my Japanese and getting me to say stupid things that I had no idea what they meant to cute girls. As Drakar said, we are a society that does not handle the responsibility of drinking well and issues would arise.

6. Age - made that clear at the onset, not into college drinking but love seeing old people ripped at home parties. I think if you are out on the town, getting **** faced is retarded. If you live somewhere where you can catch a subway home and it is safe, maybe different but if you are out in public, and puking...issues man.

7. Hospitalization - No, but I've taken people to the hospital. Really man, do you need to down a 26'er in 2 hrs?

8. Once, and the messed up thing is I went through a roadblock but they had so many cars pulled over I got waved through. I definitely shouldn't have been driving, it was totally stupid and irresponsible and it has never happened again. In Japan they have ZERO tolerance for alcohol for drivers. Here it is unrealistic as we just don't have the public transit to get night-goers home.

1. Weissbeer for breakfast is really good mmmm. On a hot beach, fishing, etc. 10 am is also acceptable. Hard stuff is later.
2. Any day you have off... except for an after worker to ease the pain.
3. I try to limit myself to 2 or so per hour. I don't like anything mroe than a buzz
4. Depends ont eh crowd. I enjoy a beer at lunch.
5. If people could do it responsibly then I say yes. You can do it now if you aren't a jack-ass about it. No one is ever going to complain if I am sipping wine with the gf at a picnic.
6. All binge drinking should end at 22 or 23. Whenever you get a job.
7. Nay. I tend to puke way before it would get to that point.
8. You might get hurt if you tried to walk. (kidding)

1. Time - daylight is a good time to start, unless your still goin from the night before
2. Day - special occasions permit drinking with breakfast (coffee and baileys) or being in vegas
3. Amount - puking in public is where i draw my limit.
4. Lunch Time - If you are working, you shouldnt drink.
5. Outdoors - sure. but there has to be some control, or chaos would be close behind.
6. i know old ppl who can out drink any young guy trying to show his stuff. its only excessive if you cant handle your booze
7. no, i have a good purging routine
8. im sure most ppl have driven when they shouldnt, me included. but now its not likely to happen

I don't really drink too often but just for fun :

1) In public, After 12:00. . . at home it doesn't really matter
2) Any day except Sunday . . . Unless its an afternoon BBQ or something
3) Specific to the person . . I would say unless it's at a bar/pub you should stop as soon as you begin to feel intoxicated
4) No drinks while on lunch break from work . . . No exceptions
5) Drinking outdoors as long as you are not intoxiated in public
6) 25 - 30 . . . after that you may need to tone it down to highschool drinking
7) uhhhh . . No.
8) No. and that was pretty much a no brainer

You should follow up by polling how many drinks do you have in a week?

8.Only if it works out to 1 per hour.

1. Time - anytime, it's 5 o'clock somewhere else in the world
2. Day - whenever
3. Amount - depends on the situation.
4. Lunch Time - lunch time brew is ok, depending on what you do.
5. Outdoors - legal in Japan, but it would be unwise here in Van as people are morons.
6. Age - 21
7. no
8. I only drive if I'm having a couple beers. Anything after that, I usually walk to the bar.

Is it okay for a Nurse to drink on their lunch break? I mean, I'm not a crane operator!

this is why my #4 was a solid NO. . . with NO exceptions. .




On a side note however; I bet more people would be injured from a drunk crane operator than a drunk Nurse

Uh, I don't know about that man. My job is pretty dangerous if you're not paying 100% attention. I'm talking wires and stainless steel mesh and balloons in 2-3mm diameter arteries in people's hearts. No bedpans here.

true....any nurse really....****ing up on meds, etc...

but then again a crane operator dropping something on a crowd of people....

see i think the crane operator has a chance of killing more people at once....but smaller chance of doing it, more likely just massive property damage...while the drunk nurse is more likely to kill someone, but not as likely to kill as many people....

i have a beer on my lunch break quite frequently, hell we drink beer at work on friday afternoons....so go take your "NO DRINKING AT WORKZ ZOMG" and shove it.....punk

hell i'll fill it out...

1. Time - 11AM.....if you start drinking early you're probably not at work..and if you're not at work wtf are u doing awake before 11?

2. Day - dont matter

3. Amount - drink up! i like watching people make an ass of themselves...as for me i prefer to be able to function

4. Lunch Time - As long as you're not getting drunk sure....depending what you do of course...for instance you're a police
officer...then u can get hammed and get away with a paid vacation....cause of stress or whatever....damn i shoulda been a cop

5. Outdoors - especially outdoors!

6. Age - when u graduate from college...

7. Nah....im not retard

8. 1 beer....MAYBE 2 if i'm there for a long time...i've put way too much time into my car too crash it

oh and i will add it's common knowledge that beer makes you a better "mechanic" therefore while working on cars beer is crucial.....absolutely crucial...unless you're gonna have to be driving...then the 1-2 beer rule applies

True,
but at any given moment in time a Nurse is only risky a single persons life. . .
while a crane operator could be risky thousands . .
There are Surgeons and other nurses around to monitor the work done and correct (if possible) any mistakes made.

Where as at hundreds of feet up, a crane operator is all alone. . . confined in his little glass box

Ps. . . I don't opertate cranes if anyone is wondering lol

6. Age - I don't think overindulgence is ever cool, although I have been guilty of this when I was younger.
7. Have you ever been hospitalized for excessive alcohol consumption? No
8. Do you drink and drive... Yes, I will drive home after having a few at dinner (for example). I know my own limit though, and have no issues handing over my keys, or taking a cab if I'm not comfortable. It baffles me when someone is so drunk they can't stand, yet feel they're okay to drive.
