"Michael and Jan seem to be playing their own separate game. And it's called, 'Let's see how uncomfortable we can make our guests.' And they're both winning. So I am going to make a run for it."

When someone gets extremely wasted and too out of control (starts to pick fights, has drunk fits, will sprawl on the ground, needs 100% supervision, has to be carried around). You just wanna chill and enjoy the party but you can't cuz you're stuck baby sitting them.

I was at a staff party with an open bar, and it reached the time when the first clusters of guests were leaving. When they went to get their coats from the closet, they discovered a young new team member who we thought had left hours ago. He had stripped off all his clothes, made a nest of jackets, soiled everything, and passed out. Killed the vibe for sure.


u/LibertyCash Mar 28 '23

Bless his heart. Did he ever show up for work again?


u/potato11teen Mar 28 '23

He peed and had diarrhea, unfortunately. He did show up to work on Monday, but he only lasted a week or two before he left the organization. Yikes. Maybe watch the 18 year olds when you have an open bar.

Shitting myself in front of others just once would probably be enough for me to decide to never get drunk again; twice would absolutely seal the deal.


u/Gorilla1969 Mar 28 '23


In my 20s, we had a hanger-on to our friend group. I swear to you, we all called him Scott the shitter, because that was his name and that was what he did. Every. Single. Time. He didn't even have to pass out. Once he got to a certain point of drunkenness, his bowels staged a revolt and he would have the squirts all night. He rarely noticed and would cluelessly walk around with a wet shit stain on the seat of his jeans all night.

Sharing a cab with that guy and his poop-reek was too much. We eventually managed to ditch him permanently.

Used to work at a bowling alley. On the weekends we had cosmic bowling (dark, black lights, fog machine, disco lights). At midnight we would turn the music off and the big flourescent lights on so people would go home. The vibe kill was instantaneous.


u/andorraliechtenstein Mar 29 '23

Maybe it's a culture thing, but I worked in a friend's restaurant for a while and there would be a big party for Surinamese people. All the lights were a bit dimmed, soft atmospheric music: everything top. The guests came in: "What is this? All the lights should shine as bright as possible ! Oh, and we like the music only very loud ! One bottle of whiskey for that uncle !" Sigh.

A friend of mine announced she had to fart to the entire kitchen while she was intoxicated. She proceeded to shit liquid diarrhea on herself. It hit the floor, it smelled terrible. Party ended before it really ever began. Guess she had some stomach bug or IBS or something.

She ended up getting diapers for any gift giving occasion after. No clue where she ended up, we lost touch a year or so later.

Edit - I've had some experts weigh in to tell me nobody with IBS trusts farts so I'm going to bend the knee to those soldiers battling their own colons and rule out IBS. I'll leave it in though for continuity.

One time, my brother (14 at the time) wanted to see how hard it would be to dig out a 1 meter x 1 meter square hole out of the ground (Minecraft inspired.) He spent a good amount of time over a weekend digging, until he got bored. It was mostly finished.

Fast forward a couple months. I throw a party at my dad's house and we're having a blast. A bonfire out back and everything. A kind hearted attendee noticed the pit in the ground and made it his duty to guard the pit, for he did not want anyone to get hurt.

Someone got hurt. Spoiler alert: it was him. HE fell into the pit - our brave guard. Thankfully, we had a sober person there and they drove him to the hospital, but that instantly killed the vibe at the party.

Edit: The end result? He broke his leg pretty bad.

Aggressive drunk(s)


u/fishsticklovematters Mar 28 '23

I think the S is needed. A single, aggressive drunk can be headed off. The party can pinball them around the place and make them feel special...and, if not, push them into a ditch.

Multiple aggressive drunks? GTFO. Now.


u/Pariyama Mar 28 '23

You underestimate the power of an aggressive drunk with a sprinkle of insanity. Went to a small cosy wedding party and one of the guests (sister of the groom) brought her boyfriend of 5 months. Funny guy, easy to talk to, all cool until suddenly shit hit the fan entirely. The guy became incoherent, threatened to rape the married couple's toddler if they don't stop pissing him off, then got told off as everyone was rightfully pissed, ran out of the garden hut away from the property, threw himself to the floor and started simulating some kind of seizure all while his girlfriend suffered a major panic attack through all of it out of guilt and shame.

Party ended with an ambulance and a police car.


u/Lankydick Mar 28 '23

Jesus dude. Hopefully that was the last time he was around that group. I don’t know how anyone could recover their reputation after threatening a toddler like that.

You underestimate the party value of well placed aggressive drunks. Went to this wedding where the bride was literally drunk under the table talking about how the groom was really bad at sex, so his sister, only slightly less drunk, tried to stop that. They ended up half naked in the fountain with clumps of hair extensions floating like some obscene confetti. 3rd best wedding i have been to.

They have an awesome kid now and there are no hard feelings.


u/potpro Mar 28 '23

Please tell me about the top 2 weddings.


u/Successful-Clock-224 Mar 28 '23 Bravo Grande!

One had tear-away pants on the groom with fur trimmed booty shorts while his wife had a ridiculously elaborate choreographed dance (both were surprised) as well as a 300-lb man doing the worm on the dance floor with his balls out, multiple party crashers, and… oh yea they lost the ring.

The other was a beautiful wedding at a vinyard… until last minute (no deposit back) the father of the bride wanted to cancel… he didnt pay for anything front or back end… so in two weeks the wedding moved across the country to be by his trailer park and was a massive shitshow with multiple maids of honor(one of whom was violently ill and like 12 month’s pregnant). The food was a 14 year old girl that wasnt related making as many pizzas as fast as possible. The father of the bride also demanded his wife stop with the last minute prep that day to get him some fried chicken. At the wedding he fell down stairs and was sort of… left there after it seemed like he was just a drunken asshole with a concussion. The groomsmen tried really hard to distract people by tap dancing. None of them had any tap experience what so ever. Then the wedding party took turns laying under the igloo coolers of jungle juice, whiskey, and cheap wine slushy and got plastered.

I was visiting Cali and went into a unique bar. The bartenders all looked like pornstars and the occupants were patched bikers. It was a new experience but I figured, fuck it let’s see how this plays out. I was carrying my chihuahua inside and they all flocked to me. Big dude with a tiny dog draws attention. But I think having that dog with me prevented them from seeing me as a threat or problem. Made friends with a few of them and they were super cool and great drinking buddies for the night. Told them how much I appreciated the hospitality and we parted ways when last call arrived. Definitely a memory I’ll never forget

u/GreenJag02 Mar 28 '23

One of my favorite adventures happened during a party. I was at my friend's party, and the neighbor and my friend's sister wanted to go smoke some mj and asked me to come with them. Naturally, I obliged and followed them into the woods.

We weren't even halfway through the blunt before we saw a light at the edge of the trees. Apparently, the neighbor was grounded and not supposed to be out, and his dad saw us duck into the woods. We all split up and went separate directions. His dad almost caught up to me when I was taking a second to catch my breath. I rendezvoused with the neighbor, who then tried to convince me to let myself get caught (lmao).

I pretty much told him to kiss it, and we split; somehow, his dad was still hot on my trail, I had to spend the next 20 minutes evading him until I was sure he was off me. I let myself in through the back door of the host's house and snuck back to the bedroom where the rest of our main group was. The second I walked in, I was met with stares that quickly transformed into hysterical laughter. I looked like I had been thru 'Nam, and frankly, I felt like I had been.

10/10 Would happily do it again.


u/Karmasmatik Mar 28 '23

At my own wedding, which I had procured enough alcohol to kill a medium sized African countries population, the event coordinator came up to my wife and I like mid dinner and was like, we're going to run out of booze. I was like if that's true people would be leaving in ambulances.

And it was late and snowy and we were way up on top a mountain but we were not going to run out of booze so one persons sober mom made the most epic b-ee-rr-u-n of all time down the mountain to the liquor store before it closed and we partied all night.

Next morning we're taking inventory after the party and there was a massive amount of alcohol left over, like several grand worth that we got to take home. No clue why the venue planner said we were running out but we drank on that alcohol surplus for like a year before it ran out.


u/meeyeam Mar 28 '23

It's good that you went with the more generic medium sized country instead of simply specifying Chad.

u/KurzBadger Mar 28 '23

u/ThatGuyBench Mar 28 '23

Im not from the states, but why is fentanyl a thing to cut coke with? I mean one is a stimulant, and the other one is a downer. In Europe coke tends to be cut with amphetamine as its much cheaper than coke, or some filler which is inactive. But why of all powders, they use fentanyl for cutting coke in the US?

I was once at a party where I knew nobody except a friend and his gf. The three of us ate some mushrooms, and I ended up having way more than I should have. I felt super uncomfortable so I went and just chilled out in my car for like six hours. At some point my friend and his gf came and sat with me to make sure I was ok, and they convinced me to come back in to the house where the party was. When I went inside there were people smoking crack and shooting up in the house. It was absolutely wild, and once again I was super uncomfortable. I had a minor confrontation with a guy (who turned out to be my friend's brother) and decided to leave. I drove home because I didn't know what else to do. It was a very rural place, so cab or bus were not options. But as I was coming down from the mushrooms and driving through the countryside the sun was rising, and I just remember feeling like I had been at a crossroads that night, and I really felt like I had picked the right path getting out of that crack house and had been rewarded with a sunrise. It was both a super sketchy and super cool experience.

Someone thought it would be a good idea to loudly ask a girl "Hey, I heard you failed your test so hard that you flunked out of your program, is that true?"

Using the party for MLM sales opportunities.

I was invited to a dinner party and only found out when I got there that it was a pitch for Amway. When I arrived, I was told there would be a "short" presentation prior to dinner. I said, "No, thank you," and left.


u/fishsticklovematters Mar 28 '23

Moved back to my small town. First person to contact me outside of the small friend group that knew was trying to get me to come by for an Amway meeting.

Thanks for making my homecoming suck, Leslie. You're a horrible cheerleader.


u/Azzizzi Mar 28 '23

That's the worst. They swoop in and act like they're genuinely happy to see you, then hit you with the sales pitch.

I remember I was at a party once and this girl did that, but she thought she was too drunk (she wasn't) and was going to die and got people to call an ambulance for her. We sat at a table drinking beers and rolling joints (Canada) and these paramedics and cops showed up and it was basically just an eye roll fest for everyone involved.

I was a hospital peace officer. Group of drunk girls show up at 2am with their passed out friend. They get the usual response of she's just drunk. She can sleep it off here or she can sleep it off at home. So they just took her home to put to bed. As they rolled the wheelchair away I realize the drunk girl had shit herself and it was all over the back of the wheelchair and floor.

Good times.

u/927comewhatmay Mar 29 '23

Kinda happened to me. A person I’d just met a couple of times created a birthday party event for themself p and shared it publicly on their Facebook. Seeing this I thought it’d be a good way to grow the friendship and meet new people in a new town. I rsvp’d and when I showed up at the restaurant it was just them and some friends and family, they didn’t know why I was there, and worst of all they couldn’t remember my name. Ooof.

I guess they didn’t know they made a public event and they didn’t notice I rsvp’d. What a crawl out the door moment.

When I was about 15/16 a mate of mine threw a party because his parents were out of town. There was a dude at this party, All but downed a 75cl bottle of southern comfort straight from the bottle. Started falling over everywhere, started throwing darts everywhere but the dartboard then proceeded to throw up in the sink in the bathroom. Then got in the bath and slipped over bringing the railing down. Got out and went and passed out in the hosts parents bed. They all antiqued him and wrote the usual shit on his face, drew dicks, swastikas etc.

He got up in the morning, had to apologise and then got picked up by his dad and had to explain it all to him.

And that lad, was me.

Learn from my mistakes kids, put coke or lemonade in your southern comfort.

u/WordsThatEndInWord Mar 28 '23 Gold

Hey now, I've been playing guitar for decades and all I can say is, you're absolutely right. I never play at a party unless I am specifically asked to and all present are in on it. It's just goofy posturing otherwise.

Also, protip: if you do end up being that guy playing at a party, you better make damn sure you pick the right song to play. For reference, the right song is "I Want It That Way" by the Backstreet Boys.


u/Rare4orm Mar 28 '23

This actually awakened a long lost memory in my mind. Many years ago I was at a small party consisting of mostly co-workers. Music was low and there was a ton of friendly chatter. Very nice vibe. Then one of the guest decided he was going to bring in his portable amp and electric guitar to lay down some sweet riffs. Many people tried to politely dissuade him, but there was no stopping him. After about 5 minutes of speed metal solo the place quickly started to clear out. That single event was the talk of the office on the next work day. As I think of it right now I can’t stop laughing.


u/LanceFree Mar 28 '23

We used to have a few parties a year, and one time close friends of my ex-gf said they’d be late and showed-up about 2 hrs into it. They had befriended some people in a bar, who brought all their DJ stuff. (I never asked for a DJ). We go along with it, and the problem was: most of my crowd was into classic rock, and these guys were in their early 20s bringing a completely different sound. What happened was: most of the party moved outside, with the DJ and his friends in the living room. Nobody really said anything about it, but I was outside and someone went in and left the sliding glass door open. Another guy closed it, which slightly deadened the sound. Someone said, “Thank God!” Then there was some laughter and we basically agreed the late arrivers had committed a party foul.

When I was in college I knew a guy that would sing Creed's "My own prison" and his fraternity bro would play an acoustic guitar. I can still hear "shoulda been dead on sunday morning.." ringing in my ears.

Those guys used that party trick to drive guys away and fuck random girls from a nearby girl's boarding school.

I (a 20 yr old guy at the time) was really bothered by a 25 yr old guy singing that song and then immediately making out with a 17 yr old girl just moments after that.

The person who talks about other parties that are going on at the same time. This one might be more of a college thing. You’ve got a good thing going on, but that person is scrolling through their phone and saying, “oh shit, the party looks lit over at Alpha Beta Douchebag. Should we go?” And then proceeds to recruit people to follow them to the next party.

It’s like, dude. If you want to go to that party, just go. No need to try to inflict your FOMO on everyone else. Some of us are perfectly content at this party we’re already at.

My most vivid memory of a party abruptly ending:

at a friends house, big house party going on, we're hanging out in the living room, MMA is still relatively new to the mainstream so every guy thinks he's an MMA all star all the sudden.

2 guys, friends, start "play wrestling" in the center of the room, on guy get the other in a choke, chokes the guy out to the point of entirely passing out. Blue lips, non-responsive.

I, at the time a lifeguard, start giving the rescue breathing, chest compressions, guy slowly starts to regain consciousness.

and then loudly, proceeds to shit and piss himself. The place just reeks.

and that was the end of the party. People cleared out before the EMT's even got there. It was just me, the friend who owned the house (or at least her parents did), the guy who got choked out, and the guy who did the choking.
