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.”
