Paul Nigel Sneddon, 47, is not someone to allow a wreck to stop him from enjoying a beer. Sneddon was trapped in his overturned car after driving drunk in Wellington, NZ. Since he had to wait for rescue crews to cut him out of the car, he proceeded to open one last beer because he had “nothing better to do.”
Sneddon explained to the court: “I was lying there, trying to get the doors open but couldn’t. I remember the inside light not working and thinking, it’s not like I’m going to read a book, so I opened another can.”
He had been drinking for four days straight and had a B.A.L. that was four times the legal limit.
His license was taken away for 10 months — roughly the time needed for him to sober up.

Of course, this story reminded me of a ol’ country song,
“Pop-a-top again, I just hae* time for one more round……” (my keyboard just quit typing the letter after U and befoe W not the du_n lette you know what won’t type!)_
Then he should have had water as alcohol dehydrates you. That’s a large part of what causes the pain of a hangover.
He didn’t want to get dehydrated.

drunken logic at it’s zenith!
That’s a really light sentence. Maybe New Zealand hasn’t had the push in the past 20 years against drunk driving that we’ve had?
I wonder if all of the girls got prettier?
Here’s a guy who really knows how to take advantage of a bad situation! Bottoms up…
Ya think he might think he has a problem with drinking, nah, it all in the eyes of the beholder……When you’re drunk you don’t have many problems do ya….if you never sober up, what problems exist?
