Thanks to 9/11, the country was collectively losing our minds? That would be my guess.

2002 is when I separated from my now ex-wife.  So that was a good thing.

I think that was the year I worked at Sears for the Christmas season.  A goddamn nightmare and that was before it started getting really bad at Sears.

People were still mourning the loss of Earnhardt Sr?

2002, 2002... hmm... ok. I think I was unemployed? in Greenland?

nah, I was working for Credit Suisse in Madison Sq. Park, and we were 1700% drinking the absolute shiat out of Manhattan and Hoboken, shades of madmen style, dressed to the nines and all.

/eh, either way, it would clock

George Bush was the president.

Not as bad as 2020, I'll grant you, but still.

I wish I could just erase 2001 and 2002 from my life. Like, what if I had been in a coma that whole time instead of doing what I actually did?

That would be better.

2002 - you mean the year that bore the brunt of the economic fallout of 9/11 - yeah, no reason why boozing would go up that year.

Hey at least this time I can say "I helped".

Was a lot harder for me to get alcohol in large quantities in 2002.

CSB: I worked at a store then at 15/16. Used to get a guy to go to a huge liquor warehouse in Kentucky called Party Source, give him 200 bucks and say "grab anything you think I would like and get yourself something nice" so at the tender age of 15 I had a liquor cabinet I wish I could afford now at the age of 34, and I kept it all in a huge boot locker on the second floor of my employers shop. Store closed, alcohol courtesy of underage Axe came out and then "hold my beer and watch this" ensued
