    Drunk shopping is a thing and according to this survey, Floridians are guilty
    Gatehouse News Service
    Floridians are big spenders and spend a lot of money while buzzed. On what exactly? Lots of clothes, shoes and vision goggles?

    How many people shop drunk? A lot. And apparently, many of them are in Florida.

    The Hustle ran a survey in an attempt to crack down on how much money people spend when they’re virtually shopping under the influence and what they actually purchase.
    The tech and business brand surveyed more than 2,000 adults. According to them, “drunk shopping” is real and can even be considered a $45 billion per year industry

    My mom and Aunt did this during the holiday season. Afterwards, they told a pretty funny story.

    Been known to happen. My first year here we lived on Tower Road (Cricket Club) and there was a Pic 'n Save behind the BK next to the Oaks Mall. We'd go in there all kinda tore up, and one of my roommates would go down the isle where the whipped cream was. Crazy college kids!!:ninja:

    Does buying your liquor when drunk count?

    I've been known in the past to make some HUGE purchases that way in the past!:D

    :D Now you can have it delivered straight to your door, so maybe the late night beer runs are coming to a close.

    I'm a recovered/recovering alcoholic put drunk in front of pretty much any activity and the answer will be yes.
