A while back I was talking to a friend that had a DUI charge back from 2006. They argued that they should have never been charged it and it was BS. They argued they got so drunk they blacked out and don't remember getting behind the wheel of their car and feels they shouldn't be healed liable. They say because they were so drunk and blacked out they weren't the one making the decisions. Claims if they didn't get drunk to the point of blacking out they would have never driven drunk.
I argued with them that they choose to drink to the point of not remembering a damn thing and they said they don't remember drinking so much so they still shouldn't have given a DUI or at least given a lighter sentence.
What kind of argument is that?! I told them they could have killed someone and they said it wouldn't have been their fault since they wouldn't remember anything. Seriously?! Needless to say we are no longer friends.
Oh and they are trying to get the DUI off their record because they don't believe they should have ever been charged.
What do you think of this argument?
What is lamest drinking and driving excuse have you heard?

A responsible person arranges for a designated driver if they know they are in for a night of drinking. Whoever was with this person or serving her the alcohol is just as responsible for not taking her keys & calling her a cab. Sadly, if they don't own their mistakes, they are likely to repeat them. Hopefully no innocent person will be harmed by their reckless behavior.
