A New Twist on Drunk Dialing

Ray van Hilst Avatar

Since I’m married it’s been many years since I “drunk dialed” – and if you don’t know what i’m talking about you might as well stop reading.

But now Google has added a new feature called “Mail Goggles“.  Apparently you set the time you are most inclined to be drunk and send an inappropriate email — let’s say anywhere from 11PM to 4AM — and before you can click send you are required to answer some math questions to make sure you really know what you’re aware of and that you really want to send this.

I’m kinda torn between laughing and crying.  I mean, I didn’t even know this was a problem.  What’s next a USB powered breathalizer that won’t turn your computer on unless you are sober?

It’s funny and worth a chuckle, but come on… let’s accept some responsibility for our actions.

(p.s. I passed the math questions before allowed to publish this post)
