"Don't drink and drive" was drilled into my head at a very early age. I remember driving in the car with my father when I was about 6. I started crying because he was drinking a can of Pepsi. I thought he was going to get pulled over and arrested.

I used to believe that when people would say, Never drink and drive, that you couldn't even drink soda or water. So one day, my mom was drinking a soda and I screamed, "MOM! What are you doing? You're drinking and driving!" She started laughing so hard that she almost hit the person in front of us.

My sister believed that if a person was "Drinking and driving." that it was any drink, not necessarily alcoholic, and the reason why people swerved was because they had a cup or a bottle in their face, and couldn't see out of the windshield properly.

True story: When I was little in the early 80s there were a lot of commercials on TV saying "Don't drink and drive." One day my mom was taking me somewhere in the car, and she had a Diet Coke. I started to cry and refused to get in the car, telling her, "You can't drink and drive!!"

When I was 4 0r 5 my whole family was in the car driving somewhere on a trip. My father was drinking coffee, and I said to him "Dad, youre not allowed to drink and drive!!".
I was so upset he was breaking the law, and he even though he told me that its ok to drink coffee and drive and that they mean another kind of drink, I didnt believe him.

After many school presentations about "Don't let your parents drink and drive," my mother was driving me to her friends house on some errand, and we had a cup of orange juice.

She got thirsty and picked it up. Now they didn't specify the word "Alcohol" in the presentation and so I freaked out and thought we were going to get in trouble!

Mom thought it was "funny."

When I was little, I was sitting in the car with my mom after we had just gone to McDonald's or some other fast food place. She was driving and picked up the soda and was about to take a sip. "NOOOO!!!!" I cried, afraid my mom would die. "Don't drink and drive!"
She then explained to me that you aren't supposed to drink alcohol and drive. I felt really dumb.

when i was real little i believed that if you were to drink and drive with any beverage, you can get pulled over by the cops and get arrested. I would always tell my mom or dad not to drink their coffee while driving just so that they wouldn't get in trouble.

I used to think that if you drank anything while in the car, you were drinking and driving. I flipped out once when my parents got us some Cokes at a drive through, and insisted on drinking it outside the car.

I used to think that the saying "If you drink and drive you are a bloody idiot" meant that if you drank anything you were a bloody idiot. One time I was in the car with my uncle and he asked me to pass him the bottle of water, but I refused to give it to him. He asked why and I said "If you drink and drive you are a bloody idiot."

I used to believe that the law about drinking and driving ment any drinks, soda, juice, any thing. So when my mother and i would get fast food from the drive through i eaither would hide my soda or not order one at all. I would always tell my mother to let me hold her's. She thought i was so polite.
