Consequences And How You Present Yourself

If you drink, you should not drive. I have enough work, thank you very much. If you drink, don’t get behind the wheel. If you do drink, get behind the wheel, kill someone, it’s probably not a good idea to dress up in a prison jumpsuit with the label “jailbird” and be photographed drinking at a party. It’s a really bad idea to put them up on your Facebook page. Again, I learned early on in my medical career that I just wasn’t a medical student, I’d become the avatar for medicine. I was an example of how good (or bad) doctors were in society by how I carried myself. This wasn’t right, smart, nor was it fair. But it was how it is. I’m very careful of what I blog. I’m careful of how I drive. I’m not a punk kid anymore. Neither was the idiot with the Facebook page.

Living in a large city brings with it a degree of anonymity, and therefore a lack of responsibility. But people do know who you are, and Google is forever.
