The answer to my wife’s frantic screaming bold faced type reply to my informative text is simple.
Our mid 30’s divorced neighbor had passed out in his parents yard after drinking two 18 packs with his father.
His parents left him there and went to a bar to watch their friends band play.
He woke up.
Drank a few more beers.
And decided that he needed to go see the band play as well.
He forgot to drive his truck from his parents house…because he was drunk….so he walked home.
Instead of walking back to get his truck and possibly getting lost on the way or getting a DUI if he made it….
He decided to walk across the street and ask if I would take him…to a bar…to watch a band….and to get more drunk….again.
How could I say no to that??
You want to know how I know that my representation of the events that led to me driving the drunk neighbor to the bar were accurate and not falsified in any way shape or form.
Because that’s the story the drunk neighbor told me on the way to the bar.

I have teens – and I always pray when they leave the house they’re safe. So I thank you, from the bottom of my mom heart for driving someone who needed a ride. I hope anyone that needs help finds it, but while finding their way, I pray their journeys don’t include roads and highways.
I have 2 teens myself and feel the same way. Although I don’t drink alcohol anymore, I don’t preach to the ones that do. I would much rather give them a ride them have them drive themselves.
And thanks, again. You’re a role model to follow 🙂
No problem. I’m just a guy trying to do right after years of swerving wrong.
You’re a good man, Charlie Brown.
He was going to the bar one way or another. At least he went with you–safely.
I bet your wife was like WTF?!?!
My wife was kinda freaking out….better yet, she is off at an AA conference….WTF is an understatement to her reaction. I called her and talked to her after I dropped him off at the bar. I told her,
“I had to take him….I needed something to post about!”
LOL! Drunks make excellent postees. Good on you for driving him instead of reading about him in the police report. Rock on!
Thanks. He was in no condition to drive, I’m glad he asked.
This is what I needed. Great laugh thanks
I don’t think I can believe this story, unless all three tellings were sprinkled with interjections of “I love you, man!”
Lol. He might have been walking again after the first interjection….
