    Only a person in North Carolina could think of this. From the county
    where drunk driving is considered a sport, comes this true story.
    Recently a routine police patrol parked outside a bar in Kinston, North
    Carolina. After last call the officer noticed a man leaving the bar so
    apparently intoxicated that he could barely walk. The man stumbled
    around the parking lot for a few minutes, with the officer quietly
    observing. After what seemed an eternity in which he tried his keys on
    five different vehicles, the man managed to find his car and fall into
    it. He sat there for a few minutes as a number of other patrons left the
    bar and drove off. Finally he started the car, switched the wipers on
    and off--it was a fine, dry summer night--flicked the blinkers on and
    off a couple of times, honked the horn and then switched on the lights
    He moved the vehicle forward a few inches, reversed a little and then
    remained still for a few more minutes as some more of the other patrons'
    vehicles left. At last, when his was the only car left in the parking
    lot, he pulled out and drove slowly down the road. The police officer,
    having waited patiently all this time, now started up his patrol car,
    put on the flashing lights, promptly pulled the man over and
    administered a breathalyzer test. To his amazement, the breathalyzer
    indicated no evidence that the man had consumed any alcohol at all!
    Dumbfounded, the officer said, "I'll have to ask you to accompany me to
    the police station. This breathalyzer equipment must be broken." "I
    doubt it," said the truly proud Redneck. "Tonight I'm the designated
    decoy."

    If this story is not true...it ought to be!!!!

    I recently stopped at a restaurant in Kinston for dinner on the way home from Raleigh. I ordered a beer and the waiter would not take the order until I showed my driver license for proof of age. He said it was a company regulation. I'm 76. It wasn't that dark there.

    Yo, willing/Bill,

    A while back I heard that an 'old-timer' successfully sued a restaurant for NOT being carded; he claimed age discrimination! Maybe snopes has something on this, I don't know, but it is certainly something that can strike fear in the hearts of restaurant and bar owners!

    I had a very similar experience being carded. I'm 55. I just told the waitress that I would get my drink and leave my tip elsewhere and have not been back. My personal revolt against stupidity.

    Porcupine,

    I don’t know what snoops would have on your story, but what exactly did he successfully sue for? Offending someone is one thing but to support a legal action, he would have to claim some type of monitory loss do to the action or inaction. So if he were offended, where was the loss?

    Hey Bob....When I got carded I asked the waitress if I could adopt her! I was actually amazed and flattered! ;)
