Leave No Wo(man) behind
I read an article yesterday, about a young drunk woman being abandoned by her friends, in absolute disgust.
It was an open letter from the Cheltenham Guardians, who are absolutely amazing and volunteer to help keep people safe, regarding a young woman called Emily who was not only abandoned by her friends, but when contacted by The Guardians, gave them the run around and caused even more trouble, you can read their open letter here. -> Open Letter From The Guardians
Now I know I am old, but RULE ONE when you are out with friends, LEAVE NO WO(MAN) BEHIND.
You go out as a group, you come home as a group. You keep each other safe and you certainly don't put anyone in danger. I have been out in the past and stopped drinking when I have seen one of my friends starting to get a bit messy. I choose to do this, I don't HAVE to do it, but to me, it is common sense, it is part of life and part of being a good friend. I love my friends and I want them to be safe. I could NEVER leave a drunk friend alone. EVER. I don't understand people who could just abandon someone they went out with.
I don't even care if they are the kind of friend who does that every time we go out. We all have that ONE friend who swears blind they aren't going to end up drunk and then ends up blazing at 9.30pm arguing with bouncers, don't we?
If you don't, you are probably THAT friend.
So what do you think of Emily's friends?
Would you leave a sloppy drunk friend behind? Or have you in the past?
Let me know.
