The designated dave/driver is the person assigned
to transport a group of drunk friends
to and from a party. It's considered a shitty job because
a) You're sober
b) You have to deal with drunk people while you're sober
'Designated Dick' exists because
any Tom, Dick or Harry can be chosen to fulfill the role and being
chosen or being
'forced to volunteer' feels like an unwelcomed blap
to the forehead.
(Friends sitting in a room
Person A: So who's all going to the rave on Friday?
Person B: Me, like fuck!
Person C: Me
Person D: Me, I'm going to get so wasted.
Person E: Me
(Everyone turns to Person E)
Person A: Isn't it your
turn to be designated dick?
