The holidays. A time when many people head home to embrace their family…and remember why they moved away in the first place. From traveling to sibling relations, the holidays can be stressful. Whatever your beliefs, these funny legal tips for the holidays will hopefully help take the edge off your event.
Once you hook up with your family, it is also essential to remember murder is a crime each and every day of the year. On edge? Consider bearnapping a teddy bear and snuffing it. No crime against doing so!
Alcohol – the cause of and answer to all your problems. If a glass of wine helps take the edge off, then a glass of wine you should have. If a vodka tonic makes a mean drunk, well…
Then we have legal narcotics. Let me emphasize the “legal” part of that phrase. If your doctor gives the thumbs up, knock yourself out.
Ah, but what about illegal narcotics? Well, do you want to spend the holidays in jail? Probably not. Authorities aren’t idiots. They will know what people are up to around the holidays and will check for various substances. A night in the grey motel is terrible enough. Spending the entire holidays there would be a nightmare. Just. Don’t. Do. It.
The emergency call? Well, that strategy is self-explanatory and always works.
The holidays can be a bit stressful, so hopefully these legal tips helped out and were at least funny enough to get a smile out of you. If not, there’s always that bottle of wine in the kitchen.
