Alcohol troubleshooting chart

I was frankly alarmed at all the high scores on the alcohol quiz yesterday.  Just as an educational service, I present this handy chart.  Print it out, laminate it, and keep it with you while bar-hopping.

Get someone to buy you another drink.

Apologize to everyone you see, just in case it was them.

Don't recognize anyone, don't recognize the room you're in.

The drink is too weak.

Have more alcohol until your voice improves.
