The only days that people drank more were New Year's Eve and St. Patrick's Day. Designating a driver for any event where there will be drinking-like a Super Bowl party-is always the right thing to do.Having learned that lesson, what else can you expect after receiving this charge, and how can you keep it from ruining the rest of the year? Here are five things you should know:
