Amazing

Despite my 12 years of being a binge drinker, I never got into any legal trouble to speak of.  Other than a minor in possession of alcohol at age 20.  I spent 15 hours in jail b/c I was in a super-conservative county where the cops are hardcore and the courts always prosecute to the fullest extent of the law.  I was caught several times in high school by police in Austin and they just made us pour it out and were cool about it.  They would even chat with us as we poured.  These other cops acted like we were serious criminals and took us to jail, all over 20 years old and we were just starting our night so we were totally sober.  I feel lucky though b/c I've done many things that I'm not proud of but have had little legal trouble.
