Most of us have several drunken embarrassing stories. Sometimes people puke and stumble.
Rarely, people undress and piss all over the floor. When that happens, it takes a real friend to want to help.
Redditor daphnejmorgan encountered this very issue with her roommate and his girlfriend. So she turned to the “Am I The A**hole” (AITA) subReddit for moral judgment.
“AITA for helping my drunk and half naked housemate to his room rather than calling his girlfriend and getting her to do it?”
The Original Poster (OP) explained:
“I (F22) am a student who is supposed to be sharing a house with three guys and two other girls. Due to COVID, only me, a guy (M19) and one other girl (F20) are actually living in the house.”
“Last night, in the early hours of the morning, someone came stumbling into my room.”
“This of course took me by surprise. I quickly switched on my lamp to find my male housemate, completely out of it, standing there with his pants down. It was almost like he was sleepwalking or something.”
“He tried to get in bed with me. Obviously I started to panic but I could tell from his confusion that he had no malicious intent. He seemed to believe that this was his room and that I was his girlfriend (F19), who lives nearby. I politely but firmly told him that this wasn’t his room. Baffled, he turned and went to leave.”
OP’s roommate needed help.
“His room was upstairs and he was in a bad state. This is when my ‘mama bear’ instincts kicked in. I couldn’t let him walk up there alone so I helped him pull up his trousers and walked him to his room.”
“Unfortunately his Johnson had to stay out as I couldn’t find a way to put it away without touching it.”
“Anyway, I helped him up the stairs and into bed, noticing on my way that he had pissed all over the downstairs bathroom. I tucked him in, poured him a glass of water and wiped the bathroom floor.”
“I knew that he would be embarrassed when he sobered up and I’m used to cleaning up after drunk people so this wasn’t a huge deal to me. He was lucky that he walked in on me and not the other girl. I doubt she would have known how to handle the situation.”
OP explained all of this to his girlfriend.
“I decided to drop his girlfriend a message to explain what happened and let her know that he got home safe.”
“I knew that I would be worried in her position and figured that it would be the polite thing to do considering he was in no fit state to communicate with her himself. I then went to bed, thinking that I had done a good deed.”
“This morning, I woke up to a flurry of messages from his girlfriend, calling me a bitch, a slapper and all sorts of other nasty things.”
“Her reasoning was that, considering he was half naked, I should have called her instantly so that she could deal with it as she is only a twenty minute drive away and she is his girlfriend. I told her that I acted in the moment as it was the middle of the night, I didn’t think that she would be up and he was about to potentially hurt himself walking up the stairs.”
“However, she is convinced that, because I saw his willy, my intentions must have been less than pure. I told her that she had a lot of growing up to do and she called me an asshole.”
“So, am I the a**hole here?”
Redditors gave their opinions on the situation by declaring:
- NTA – Not The A**hole
- YTA – You’re The A**hole
- NAH – No A**holes Here
- ESH – Everyone Sucks Here
Most Redditors agreed OP was not the a**hole.
“NTA wtf? Does she think a drunk person is gonna wait 20 minutes for his girlfriend to roll up? I’ve done this kinda stuff for my drunk friends and them for me, it’s nbd.” ~ idkwhattowritehere21
“Right? Like who sees a totally wasted man with his pants around his ankles pissing himself and goes ‘oh baby I want him so bad’? Like best reaction is the potty for a dumb baby with no idea how pants work.” ~ Delicious_Lobster468
“Imagine thinking that someone would be like ‘aww yes, a (presumably) soft peen filled with the recent piss taken all over the floor, stuck to this out of his mind dunk person… HAWT!!1!1 I WANNA SMASH THAT!1!'” ~ aokaga
“Honestly if I was the girlfriend, I would have been embarrassed that my boyfriend had been so drunk that his female housemate had to help him and that she was subjected to his junk. I’d probably tell him to get her something to say thanks and sorry lol.” ~ moviequote88
“The image is such a turn off. GF should be grateful she was spared this sorry sight. Having to mop up pee after your BF would certainly take the romance out of the relationship. She owes OP a ‘thank you’ card and a box of nice chocolates for being so sensitive and handling this in such a mature way.”
“NTA.” ~ Virtuellina
“Dunno, my ex once cleaned A LOT of bright red vine-vomit for me while fervently apologizing (because he was partly to blame for me being so drunk and because I told him to let me stay in the bathroom but he was worried for my safety so he took me to the main room which ended with me puking in front of the other guests) and then brought me to bed.”
“In the first years of our relationship I often took care of him when he was too drunk to get along without help. It didn’t damage our relationship or the romantic (we’re both kinda matter of fact people), it just happened. But we also took care of each other when we were ill and my friends and I often took care of each other when one was drunk.”
“But I don’t understand how the gf in this post can believe there’s anything sexual with op helping the drunk guy and cleaning up his pee.” ~ concrete_dandelion
Remember to eat before drinking next time.
