Drink-driving, anyone?


Perhaps the smallprint says “Do not use the fuel and the alcohol simultaneously.”

In defence of Woolies, it is PACKAGED beer they are flogging. So the idea is you take your purchases home and get drunk there. But you do make a good point!

I once saw an American bewildered about the idea of drive-through bottleshops.

Someone said to him, “As opposed to a normal bottleshop, where you park the car, walk into the shop, come out, put the beer into the car and drive off…?”

On the other hand, I like the fact that the taboo on drink-driving is so strong we get this kind of reaction!

@Alexander – I don’t know what kind of American you were speaking with, but the part of the US I grew up in has them – they’re called “Brew-Thru”s.

Have also seen desolate truck stops in the middle of nowhere with giant signs advertising “Cold Beer To Go”.

It makes more sense than a drive-through bank. How are little old ladies supposed to carry 60 kg of beer out of the shop ?

In the old days, the bottles and cartons were more fragile than they are now.
