after seeing random stuff on the internet about peoples confusion, fascination and sometime anger over Americans using red cups at parties i thought I would address the issue of why we use them to get drunk at large social gatherings.
First of all its not that we have a preference for drinking out of them literally they are large, cheap and widely available. Like if you can find a different bag 50 or more giant disposable drinking vessels at a gas station at 11pm please let me know. Until then we will continue to use them. Also people asking what is wrong with using normal glass. Bitch I don’t want 50 black out drunk people using my cute glasses that i spend money on and breaking them. they can fucking drink out of a cheap plastic cup. Also have you ever done dishes after hosting a big party? i have and i will not do it again, so i will continue to buy large disposable cups that i don’t have to wash by hand the next morning when im hungover. Literally we use them because we are poor and lazy and they are cheap and convenient. I don’t live in america currently so now when i buy cups to bring to a large social drinking party they aren’t the standard red cups. they are instead the cheapest and most convenient cups that i can find at the gas station/grocery store/dollar store/ literally anywhere that sells things.
