This one’s for the Drunk Dialers

OK, Singletons… ‘fess up. You’ve done it. We’ve all done it. No, not that, you freak. I’m talking about the Drunk Dial. Or perhaps it was a text. Anyway, it was a lonely Friday night and you put down your third glass of wine/beer/whipped cream vodka and Fanta (don’t judge me, we’ve all got our preferences) and picked up the phone. And in the morning? Humiliation. Regret. Self-loathing.

I want to invent an App that would block the user from calling or texting certain numbers for a specified amount of time. You could set it when you start drinking, or if you know you’re feeling especially vulnerable. Because let’s face it… many of us don’t need to get drunk to lack impulse control and have serious lapses in judgement. Hell, listening to Gravity is as dangerous as four rum-and-cokes for facilitating a pathetic late night text.

Mac already has a computer program called Self Control that you can use to block yourself from certain websites. After reading about it on takingbacksingle’s blog I found the review on Self Control from Wired magazine. So it can’t be long now until they realize emotional kleptomaniacs like me could use one for their phones, too.

Who’s in?
