If you had lived during the Prohibition, would you have been a Moonshiner, or a runner?

Or would you been one of the normal folk? Or a copper?

A drinker.

"Those behind Prohibition saw a ban on the sale of 'intoxicating liquors' as a crusade against a moral evil. But the big winners were Al Capone and the mob"

[@16806,cherokeepatti] No? Just normal folk, living a quiet life in the country somewhere?😇

woulda been poor probably, so normal
A “normal” person, just trying to survive. That’s who my grandparents were—two teachers, a cobbler and a homemaker who also did hair.

[@328496,bijouxbroussard] You have lots of old family stories?
[@1137758,UnderLockDown] Yes, indeed. The cobbler and homemaker had 10 children (the 7th of whom was my mother). He made and repaired shoes, she did hair for something like $1 for a shampoo and set. That’s how they made it through the Depression.

I would have wanted to be a bootlegger, but I wouldn't have the nerve. So, I'd just be a normal poor person. ☹️

[@78387,Stereoguy] So you could make alcohol stills and sell them.😉 There had to be some decent money there.
Stereoguy · 56-60, M
[@1137758,UnderLockDown] Yes there was. I would actually like to have delivered it, but I would have been scared.
