Do not call drunk list

haha nice!

[q]You're Drunk...who You Gonna Call?


CANBERRA (Reuters) - An Australian phone company is offering customers the chance to blacklist numbers before heading out for a night on the town so they can reduce the risk of making any embarrassing, incoherent late-night calls.



A survey of 409 people by Virgin Mobile, a joint venture of The Virgin Group and Optus, found 95 percent made drunk calls.


Of those calls, 30 percent were to ex-partners, 19 percent to current partners, and 36 percent to other people, including their bosses.


The company also found that 55 percent of those polled would grab for their phone first the next morning to check who they had drunkenly dialed, compared with just eight percent who went for the headache pills first. [/q]

Checked my phone to see if I really did make those calls to friends.

What good can come from calling your boss while drunk??? I guess it is a much needed service.

It really confounds me as to why people do certain things while drunk. I'd like to think that I'm really level-headed when drunk; I expend twice the energy trying to not make a fool of myself...lol.

A few years ago two brokers that sold business through the company I worked for, drunked called my office and left voicemails for me, my manager and another co-worker. We laughed but thought it was so stupid for them to do that, they could have really damaged their future in sales with our company. But they were in Vegas and having fun and felt we needed to know it.

I know many who have called their bosses drunk, and like NB I am not sure good it did by doing that.

I don't have a boss but if I did, I sincerely hope I could restrain myself from drunk calling him/her.

The only people I have ever drunk dialed are other Interferencers....and it wasn't pretty

I called a former boss while drunk once (she was my boss at the time)...but she thought it was hilarious.

yeah, usually i'm the same way.

apparently slava molotov (foreign min. at the time) impressed dignitaries with his most incredible ability of drinking just as much vodka as anyone else, but maintained complete control and composure so as not to show weakness in front of stalin.

My friend Meghan and I delivered SINGING drunken voice mails to a few people while I was in Binghamton a couple of weeks back.

Ah, the singing version of the drunk dial

I've been told that Sicy and I left a horrible, drunken version of Come On Eileen on someone's voicemail a few years ago in Vegas. I think Icelle, bg and ABEL were witnesses but I don't remember doing it
