  • Yeah, THAT'S not going to look good on your resume.
  • Since it is a white gal this time, will a black gal play her in the inevitable movie?
  • Maybe she was working on a case study?

    /It could happen
  • Whadda you think -- drug counselors have to understand what they're treating, just like people who investigate serial killers, meter maids, and anti-abortion Republicans.
  • Good thing she wasn't involved in MADD.

    Ok, for the first time ever, I nearly did spit soup on my keyboard. Well, cellphone.

    Super funny stuff right there.
  • I swear the first half of this was an episode of CSI. The second half, not so much. How the...what... Whoever gave this woman the option of being her own drug counselor needs to be taken out back and whacked with a cane switch.

    Or votes.

    Lisonbee said that the situation highlights the need for counselors to prioritize their own recovery.

    Yeah, no shiat
  • Just in time for the holidays! Sung to the tune of Granma Got Run Over By A Reindeer ...


    Whitey got run over by a Chante,
    He was walking home late one eve.
    You can say there's no such thing as Chante,
    As far as flying white guys, they believe!

    She had been drinking to much whiskey,
    At just sixty nine cents a throw.
    And she was doing some X'ing,
    She was one big fat doped up hoe.

    When she drove on down the highway,
    She veered off a 'beet.
    Next thing you know 'ole Whitey's,
    Head was lying next to her in the seat.

    Whitey got run over by a Chante,
    He was walking home late one eve.
    You can say there's no such thing as Chante,
    As far as flying white guys, they believe!

    Now we're all so proud of Chante,
    She took it really well.
    When Whitey jumped though her windshield,
    She asked him to light her Pal Mall.

    Now she pulls up in her driveway,
    And to the house, she goes in.
    And Whitey stops and wonders,
    Should he have bought that Lotto scratch and win.

    Whitey got run over by a Chante,
    He was walking home late one eve.
    You can say there's no such thing as Chante,
    As far as flying white guys, they believe!

    Well, if you DID RTFA, you'd know that the headline is a troll.

    Neat. I had no idea. Now can someone explain who the hell this woman is going to call when she feels like doing smack or whatever in the middle of the night?

    It's Lake Berryessa in the Coast Range in northern California.
  • Um, are there any counselors that AREN'T recovering addicts? Recovering addicts relapse, more at 11:00.
  • "Impaled on her windshield"?

    Probably just semantics.

    One cannot be impaled on a flat surface. You need something thin like a tree trunk.

    Agreed, not so much. It seems like every person who has that Come To Jesus Get Sober moment in their lives thinks that because they were an addict (of whatever substance) it qualifies them to help addicts. While there are a few that cross the bridge well, at the same time there is a huge difference between slugging substances oneself, getting out of that lifestyle not to mention helping others get out of that life. I don't know this person's entire history, but it sounds like she said the right words, pushed the right buttons and got a degree as a counselor. The reality is that she never got clean herself as evidenced.

    I would seriously doubt this was her first and/or most recent experience with drinking and driving.

    Shame for that poor dude.

    And as far as the idea that you have to have been an addict to be a counselor - that is bullshiat. If I get cancer do I need a doctor who is in remission to treat me? Not! Addiction counseling is a skill that is learned as well as felt. Sucking down a fifth of gin daily for 10 years does not qualify one as a competent adviser. It may give one some insight, but it is not necessary.

    They're better at it, for obvious reasons. You can be educated and empathetic as fark-all, but if you have never been an addict, you don't understand what it's like and you don't care as much. And it's pretty hard to care for some people who keep trying to kill themselves, against all rational thought and common sense.
