Default Would you leave a friend in a bar?

I would not leave someone I thought was likely to pass out or end up in any kind of danger, but I learned a long time ago how to get a server or bar tender to help out in these kinds of situations by cutting off the alcohol. I also make it clear to the friend when they are sober that I didn't appreciate having that kind of night.

I will never forget carrying a girl out of a bar and getting her home one night. She was just a friend of a friend and she had this beat up old car. I didn't have my car so I had to drive hers. The oil light came on half way to her place. Resolved that issue only to get her home and find out that she had given the key to her place to someone else in the group that was still out parting. I had to hang out with the drunk on her door step till 6am. Of course she was pretty sick by this point, and I was thinking the whole time about if I needed to take her to the hospital. Thankfully it was summer. It was a terrible night and she avoided me for a long time because she was so embarrassed. But I learned my lesson.

true about letting the servers/bartenders know to cut off the person.
Great idea!
Glad you helped your *friend* get thru the night.

I felt responsible that night because I was watching the bartender pour the alcohol, but I was too young and in inexperienced (i.e. stupid) to put 1+1 together until it was too late. I only have one good friend left from that time in my life and she is a bartender. She has done more to help me stop drinking than anyone. The stories alone. Lol.

I wouldn't leave someone who I felt was incapable of getting home on their own steam. Meaning she was not near passing out. Back in the day I could hang with the best of them, now I know I can't and get home safely. Along with drinking comes responsibility and if you can't take responsibility for your actions then you shouldn't be out drinking. This isn't a teenager who is not experienced, it's a grown woman of 44 years. Believe me she knows exactly what she does, she just doesn't give a damn what or who it affects. My only mistake was not leaving when I said I wanted to leave.
