CSB
I got hammered one night freshman year of college, and instead of driving home I decided to walk back to the dorms. Maybe 2 miles max. Ended up past out in the middle of a street. The first thing I remember waking up to was me in the back seat of a police car hearing the officer on the radio saying "Yeah we picked up a guy, he doesn't even know his own name or where he lives and he has no I.D", so I interrupt him and say "My name is The_Hairy_Gooch, and I live at Prospector Hall at the dorms". He stops looks back, laughs, and says "He's responsive now". They proceed to give me a ride home, and that's it. I was underage and in hand cuffs expecting to go to jail and these nice guys just gave me a lift home. Thinking on it now I'm glad the cops found me first instead of getting ran over by some random car. Oh man the number of times I should have died in life already lol

So they dropped her off but didn't make sure she made it inside? That's unfortunate, I'm often DD for when friends go out (I'm a lightweight and can't keep up with them anyway) and we always make sure someone makes it in the door before we go to the next drop off. Inserting a key in the dark basically becomes brain surgery after a rough night.

ElLoco: Pro tip hint: Pick the buddy that doesn't have some combination of "brutal" and "anal" in his search history.


Chances are he furiously rubbed one out before the night started. That combined with the whiskey-dick means their buddy is relatively safe.

That almost happened to me once. I was so drunk, walking back from a bar, I made it to the hotel car park before deciding that the car part was close enough, and laid down in the car park for a rest. Fortunately it started raining which made me get up and continue my journey. I think being run over was a more likely outcome for me, rather than hypothermia. I'd like to have a conversation with drunk me.

It's a good thing he died, couldn't imagine going through life with no balls like he was living. Seriously, not being able to drink in your own house? He was better off dead.

But seriously, when I was young and dumb there were many times when I was piss drunk and walking home in the winter. And a few of those times my drunk brain told me that I was sleepy and it would be fine to curl up and lay down for a couple minutes of shut eye in some corner. It is a good thing I had the sense not to listen to my drunk brain.

This happened not too far from my house. The bar he was drinking at is one of my favorites.

My wife bartends (not at Brew's) and her first thought was of the bartender that may have over-served this guy. They are pretty hard on bartenders for that kind of thing around here. It can be difficult to tell when some people are too intoxicated, or how a couple of drinks will really affect their judgment.

I decided to walk home once in college.  It was 2 miles tops.  And, on one road in a straight line.

I remember starting the walk.

Then, I remember noticing that I didn't know where I was.  For some reason, my auto pilot made me turn onto an intersecting street.

A car of girls that lived in the same area I did stopped and asked if I needed a ride.  I took it.

It was kind of amazing.  I went from walking home to lost to home eating pizza in around an hour.

Relatively ;) Early 30's. Kid up the street from me died a similar way when I was in middle school, sports captain, etc., his friends left him drunk on his front lawn, and he died from alcohol poisoning, not freezing.

It's a stupid and totally preventable thing, definitely Darwin in action, but like I said... not a good way to go ;)

Ah, cartoon memories! IIRC the dog mixing the martini was in a Bugs Bunny cartoon. The drink was for HIM and he kept showing up drunk at his rescues. Can't remember if he had a name tho.

Imagine the call to the parents.


 Had this happen not too long ago in my hometown to a young adult. Very sad. I worked with her mother, very sweet lady.

FarkingReading: Onkel Buck: This same thing happend in Richmond, Michigan this weekend. But the victim was a 22 year old female. No word on how hot she was


I'm guessing ambient temperature.

Bedstead Polisher: gopher321: Bedstead Polisher: I once woke up in the middle of the night to open my window and let some air in. As I lifted the blinds to open the window, I noticed that my neighbour was passed out on the front lawn/driveway. I watched her for a second to see if she was breathing, then I went back to sleep. She was gone by morning. She survived.

My hero!

I hate that stupid white trash biatch. She throws loud parties and is a mean drunk, so she's always screaming at people. Other neighbours have called the cops on her.
I would have felt guilty as hell if she wasn't okay though.


There can be a fine line between passed out drunk and dead. She could have been breathing when you looked and dead five minutes later. See Pitabred's above post about someone being left on the lawn by his friends and dying of alcohol poisoning. So yeah... good thing she was okay after all...

Fun tip if it happens again: go outside and shake the passed out moron. If she's unresponsive to noise and vigorous shaking, call 911. Alternatively, put your knuckles on her sternum, press down hard, and move your knuckles around*. It hurts but doesn't do any lasting damage. If there's still no response, say "fark you, biatch" and walk away call 911.

* an EMT friend told me that's one way they determine if a passed out drunk really needs a fast ride to the hospital

o_blah: This happened not too far from my house. The bar he was drinking at is one of my favorites.

My wife bartends (not at Brew's) and her first thought was of the bartender that may have over-served this guy. They are pretty hard on bartenders for that kind of thing around here. It can be difficult to tell when some people are too intoxicated, or how a couple of drinks will really affect their judgment.


My first thought was that if he was drinking at the restaurant, the bartender/server is farked. I believe the claim that it can be hard to tell if someone is too intoxicated to drive, but this kid was so intoxicated he fell asleep outside and froze to death. That's pretty farking drunk. The bartender should have noticed.

Thanks for the tip. I hope it doesn't happen again. I've unfortunately dealt with enough situations that required a 911 call, so I wouldn't hesitate if I thought someone needed it. The situation above happened a few years ago, I think I was half asleep when it all happened, otherwise I probably would have noticed the  potential danger of the situation. The neighbour also seems to have calmed down a bit with her partying since then. (At least around our neighbourhood.)

Note to hip youngsters: Sure, you're invulnerable, but you shouldn't wear shorts when there's snow on the ground, and consider putting on more than a hoodie.


And leave the skittles at home

Someone with a Roman numeral after their name dying as a result of alcohol-induced derp?

I hate it when I make it home and am too drunk to use the key. Last time I fell asleep near the front door, head at the bottom of the steps and feet halfway up.

And altercation with gravity may have occurred.

Aaand this is why when I ran across a drunk dude asleep on the sidewalk in Denver at 3am (I keep weird hours, was just walking my dog) I shook him awake with my foot and walked him the 2 blocks home... when he could finally remember where that was. Boy was his GF pissed when he finally showed up at the door.

Friends/family said I was crazy for doing it (being a 30 yr old female) but I had my dog with me and I couldn't have lived with myself if I'd seen a story like this on the news the next day.

Wish more people in this country took care of their neighbors like that. Too many people afraid of their own shadow to stand up and do the right thing.
