Default Drunk Proof Camera

This is my very first post so if the title of the thread is too over the top I apologize. It's rare but when my wife goes out with the girls it never fails the photo's taken that night are so bad even Photoshop can't save them. Apparently after a couple drinks her thumb finds the macro button and she doesn't realize it. From there on all the images are blurry. I'm looking for a slim, compact camera that can either fit in a back pocket or small purse that doesn't have a macro button where the right thumb can find it. Some type of image stabilization is a must because if she's not swaying the the person she's shooting is. Something super easy to set up or better yet a camera that has an auto adjust feature that really works especially indoors with poor lighting. Most camera's that I've looked at do have the macro button with the exception of some Sony and Kodak models. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

If alcohol induced operation- thus simplicity- is required,you could do a great deal worse than this...

Maybe she looks at the images afterwards and thinks 'Yep, that's exactly how I remember it' ;p

I think I saw that someone was selling a camera with a breathalyzer attached. Only let you take shots if you are under the legal limit.

How about iPhone 4s? She can always call for a ride or help to take the picture with that.
