Illustration for article titled Dont Amazon after drinking, a PSA.

We've all been there. Whether it's going out with your friends and returning home and perusing the interwebs when suddenly you get that thought in your head. I'm here to tell you don't do it. Stay off Ebay, stay off Amazon, drunk purchasing is bad.


Yesterday I had orientation for my graduate school, because the orientation people are awesome they had provided some free drinks after the orientation. First thought: this is awesome. Second thought, I should go out with some friends.


Fast forward to returning home safely. Of course the call of drunk shopping beckons as I walk past the computer. "I wonder if I could get Biltong or Droewors from Amazon.."

The obvious answer is of course you can and of course they have it! While our judgement is impaired in other ways from the consumption of alcohol it can also impair our judgement in purchasing quantities of delicious food items.

I know awake to several email receipts from Amazon thanking me for my purchases. I guess I will have to do a follow up report on which brand of biltong is the tastiest after this endeavor.
