This kinda sh*t scares me.

Usually I'm pretty fearless. I know my skill level and some of that "10 foot tall and bulletproof" mentality from the Marines still is in there, but this kinda sheet scares me. Effin' people with no regard to anyone's safety, not even their own.

Grandma must never have stayed up until 3AM. That's when the REAL fuckery happens.

I have a family with drinking and driving issues. They get upset every time I disconnect the ground strap to the battery on their cars when they get too drunk to drive. I do this a lot.

i did this as a kid as well then one of my moms worthless boyfriends managed to run them self over with the car push starting it do i found it better to remove the rotor from the distributor....
and only times i found myself on the wrong side of the high/free way was once when backing down an offramp and down the road a bit to tow a broke down car off the road (better then looping back 10+ miles turning around and coming back) and one other time in a extreme moment of mental weakness (luckily i snapped out of it before i hurt myself or worse someone else)

As a teenager I did that more that once as a to my Dad.
We had a 69 Mustang Mach 1 that we put a 427 in and needless to say, not a good thing to attempt driving drunk.

I'm a Behavioral Specialist, not a car mechanic

I used to remove distributor rotors, then that cars came out with without distributors. So it's disconnecting ground straps off the battery.

A cousin of mine drove my car while drunk. Hit a telephone pole, totaled the car and knocked out power for 300 people. The best news of all. Her head went threw the windshield. It was no major loss to me, the car was a 1986 Chevrolet Nova.

Not sure if this is related to the subject matter, plus I am a bit naive, cuz I rarely ever stay out after dark.......uh, I mean......midnight, unless I'm on call and get called in at all hours of the night, and that brings me to my question.

When I get called into work at all hours, whether it's at midnight, 2 am, 3 am, 4 am or even 5 am, and I drive by "Jack in the Box," there's like either 3 to 6 cars lined up for the drive through. What am I missing? I've been taking taking call for years, and I've seen this for years, and just keep scratching my head. Do they have something there that sobers people up to get home? Or is that just the thing to do in the middle of the night for those that like to stay up?

I eventually move on from the rotor removal and installed a fuel pump switch out of sight under the dashboard.
