    Does anybody else hate people who only go to the liquor store on holidays and ask stupid questions a about booze?

    This about sums it up.

    Seems to me the only people that should even fathom this question are liquor store employees.

    Do they keep you from buying your daily dose of cheap vodka?

    Not everyone is good at being an alcoholic.

    Diagnosis of an alcoholic: someone who drinks more than their doctor.

    Why not just buy your liquor before the holidays then? Problem solved, next.

    You do know that not everyone who buys liquor is an alcoholic, right?

    Well of course I do... I just find that those who buy alcohol so often, that they've developed gripes about "liquor store rookies", are usually flirting with the idea of being one.

    If you are serious, I think this makes you nuttier than a fruitcake. So I will give you the benefit of the doubt and assume you are joking.

    Wow... I was actually more or less just making a joke, but I'm thinking it made you sit back and question some decisions you've made with your life.

    Sometimes a failed joke can become a real eye opener... You're welcome :wavey:

    Well you are not very good at it!

    You 'feel' that anyone who goes to a liquor store and enjoys booze has a drinking problem.
    It's ok with me thou as I enjoy it when your type comes into a thread with the usual wet-blanket posting.

    Amateurs. Like all the people that get DUI's on New Year's Eve. Total amateurs. To the OP's point: they typically ask questions about wine. Who on God's earth drinks wine?!? Answer: only amateurs. Hardcores buy their liquor by the half gallon, often by the case load.

    I've always called the holiday drinkers out for participating in 'amateur hour'.

    The hardcores always stay in on those nights.

    Again, it was an attempt at a joke, but never did I say that. I said that anyone who goes so often they develope gripes about other patrons, is flirting with alcoholism... Again, a joke.

    Come on now, Flip, there's gotta be something better to do on a Saturday night than to troll ol' Josh :supergrin:
