You can’t argue with a drunk. If he’s not an alcoholic I’m sure he feels like an ass today. 🙂

I hope things have cleared a bit this morning for you, I feel bad for you. Ouch. Agree with PPs above, Fiance should talk w/ Future Father-In-Law and lay down the law, I hope as he sobers up he feels like a JERK and gives the apology you deserve. I would give him this ONE pass, and not do anything personally to retaliate or escalate the situation. I’m glad Fiance stood up for you and got him out of the house, hopefully Future Father-In-Law will realize what a horribly mean thing that was to do.

Drunk or not… as the saying goes ” a drunk man speaks a sober man’s mind.” So underneath it all, in his own sick twisted way, he might have been trying to test you. Here is how the conversation would have taken place if I were you.

Future Father-In-Law: rant..rant…rave…roar..roar

Me: Shut the f*ck up and get your drunk a** out of my house!

End of conversation…

Why in God’s name would you start a conversation with someone who was intoxicated?

Also, you said in your post, he got in the car…and he was drunk? So, you let him drive drunk, he could have killed someone. when someone is in your home and they are intoxicated it is your DUTY to take their keys, and/ord rive them home.

I am sorry you are feeling bad, but you should not start a conversation of importance with someone who has been drinking. And you absolutely should not have let him get in a car and drive.

I am in no way mocking this situation but… does anyone else find this story to be at least a little bit funny? Not like “hahaha” funny. But like, laughing at a funeral funny? Like a scene in The Office that is just so awful and awkward that you can’t help but find it funny? It is just SO outrageous! I’m sorry, I laughed!

On the bright side you will have some very colourful family events to look forward to for the rest of your life. My best advice: learn to brush off and laugh at the garbage he spews.

Um, if he’s spouting mean, hurtful stuff while he’s drunk, that’s not ok. It’s not funny (even a little). It’s not an excuse. Yeah, he should apologize, but that does not make it ok. You don’t have to talk to him when he’s drunk, and neither does your FH. If he ever does that again, call him a cab and send him away. Seriously. You don’t have to take it. You don’t have to laugh it off. You don’t have to be treated like that in your own home.

Also, I suspect that this is not the first time he’s done crap like this. If he is a drunk, you and your FH may need some counseling – I know AA has programs for the children/family members of alcoholics, and that might help.

Good luck!
