Everyone’s had their fair share of late-night drunken drama — some more so than others. Not that I’ve haven’t said/done things I’ve regretted under the influence, but even so, I’m certain I have far less regrets than those of the average person, or at least compared to most of the people I know. It’s actually one of my pet peeves when people use alcohol as an excuse for behavior.
“Why did you do that?”
“I was drunk.”
Anyway, often a drunk person will say/do something that will upset a sober/more sober person.
Here’s my advice to the sober person in the situation. LET IT GO, at least for that night. If you confront a drunk friend about something he/she is doing that’s bothering you, don’t expect a positive response. Expect a defensive, possibly volatile response.
The best strategy is to let things go, then have a rational discussion the next day, about whatever happened the previous night…assuming the drunk person remembers at least a little bit of what happened…
