Boyfriend slammed for telling man’s embarrassing story at dinner party: ‘Cruel’

The internet has blasted a friend after he revealed a man’s embarrassing story at a dinner party.

Posted on Reddit’s r/AmITeA**hole forum, a friend under the anonymous username u/djdkgjeis shared his story to get opinions from the “AITA” community.

The original poster (OP) began their story by explaining that they had recently gone out with some friends and one friend, “John”, got so drunk they couldn’t walk. One of their friends suggested John take an Uber home, but the OP insisted he could stay with them overnight.

Eventually, getting out of the car, John passed out in a puddle and got soaked from the rain. The OP had to “pull him in” where John could barely move and was urinating on himself. The next morning, John felt very ashamed of his actions and apologized for “being a liability” and was glad the OR took care of him. John paid the OP for cleaning supplies, ended up cleaning his own mess and bought the OP breakfast.

They first met at a friend’s dinner party. “At the dinner party I kept saying, ‘John had a oh-oh, John, why don’t you tell everyone the other day,’ then he kept saying no, and it’s disrespectful to keep pushing your boundaries when.” he said no Then I showed everyone a video of John jerking and passing out because I thought it was harmless and funny. John said it wasn’t the right place and then I was like John told everyone what happened.”

“The next day, John texted me, ‘Look, I’m sorry I was a burden, but I didn’t do it on purpose. I think it was unnecessary and cruel that you tried to humiliate me at a dinner party with all our colleagues’ and then blocked me. I didn’t think it was a big deal when he did it,” they concluded.

news week asked u/djdkgjeis for a comment.

news week has published several articles on conflict in friendships, including a man who was slammed online after calling his friend’s child “luggage”, the internet supported a man who told his friend he was not the “victim” after a breakup and a woman was supported for telling her friend that her baby’s father would never love her.

How to take care of a drunk friend

Friends help each other in more than one way, especially when you’re drunk. According to au.reachout.com, here are important ways to protect your friend when he’s very drunk:

  • If you notice a friend has been drinking too much, stay with them to avoid trouble or accidents.
  • Relieve them of alcohol and bring them something to eat.
  • If your friend needs to lie down, lay him on his side. Vomiting prevents them from choking.
  • Make sure they get home safely.
  • Call for help if your friend passes out or cannot be woken.

Redditor reactions

U/EmpressJainaSolo beat the OP and received the top comment of 23,000 upvotes: “[You’re the a**hole]. Your friend was clearly ashamed of his behavior. What happened was scary, embarrassing and probably a low point for him. He apologized profusely and immediately made amends. Being so ill and out of control sounds like a big, potentially life-changing thing to him.”

“The fact that people pass out from alcohol poisoning happens so often in your life that you find it hilarious enough to share at the dinner table. What happened is not normal and not safe. If it’s normal for your life then you need to start making changes right away,” the commenter continued.

“[You’re the a**hole]. What was the point of recording a video? And showing it to people after he asked you not to continue. You are a seriously shitty person and need to reconsider how you should respond when people ask not to be embarrassed,” wrote u/DrPepperSocksNow.

“[You’re the a**hole] You seriously don’t see anything wrong with filming an unconscious person without their consent and then sharing the footage while the person STANDING THERE AND ASKING THEM TO STOP?! At least all your friends now know not to trust you to take care of them,” said u/Cavane42.

“The people say [you’re the a**hole] because you shared his embarrassing story without permission and they are absolutely right, but honestly so are you [the a**hole] because you went to bed and left a guy who appeared to have alcohol poisoning passed out on your floor with no regard for his health. You are very, very lucky that he woke up instead of choking on his own vomit or going into a coma,” emphasized u/peppermintplant.
