I believe that common sense is no longer common. What do you think?

I was asked today by someone if it was okay if they drank alcohol with an antibiotic and pain reliever. DUH!!! What have you heard or seen lately that made you wonder if a person possessed common sense.

  • well just earlier i commented on the question of should a 7 month prego woman ride a motorcycle just for fun. That is lacking common sense on the prego womans end.

  • A lack of common sense is a HUGE pet peeve of mine.

  • I COMPLETELY AGREE with ur original statement!!!! Although I looked it up online once and it depends on the type of antibiotics that you are taking, with some it can lower the effectiveness and with others apparently not. But of course it said "doctors recommend that you never drink alcohol while on any sort of medication".

  • To Zanjea what did this have to do with this question? Yes, I have noticed that more and more people are lacking common sense. I feel that men are hit the hardest. I feel that anything I talk about it always turned into something else, that has nothing to do with the original question? Or is it possible that it comes with age?

  • Common sense is a rare find in people these days. That and manners, pretty sad.

  • LOL! You worded it perfectly!

    As far as the alcohol and antibiotics, well, they also asked about pain meds, too, so...if they are sick, and not feeling well, should they really be drinking? I'd think not. But, there we go with the common sense thingy again!
