Santa, I Was Good

I went to a bachelor party over Christmas break and because I am still studying and because I had made promises to myself and God, I was the designated driver. Everyone else got to get sloppy drunk except for me. I didn't mind though, I think watching everyone else drink was more fun--especially because people generally make asses of themselves when they are toasted.

The bachelor party itself was okay. The bachelor didn't want to go to a strip club, instead he and his wife-to-be decided that the the bachelorette and bachelor parties would conjoin at close to midnight and become one blob of drinking fools. I guess that was alright, his reasoning was validated--he was getting married, why look at other naked chicks. But I begged to differ, if I wasn't getting sloshed and I had to babysit, it would have been better to babysit sober while getting a lapdance (don't you think?).

The only downside to our drinking was when the bill came, the one guy who was tallying it up (well he was drunk because the next day--at the wedding, he was a pretty nice guy and didn't seem to remember) included me in the head count. One of the groomsmen tried to explain that I should not have to pay because I didn't drink or eat anything and also because I was shuffling people's drunk asses back to the hotel room. The tallyer said "fair is fair everyone pays". The groomsmen then said, "fine, then I'll pay his 50 bucks". And the tallyer ended up saying "never mind let him be cheap". I don't think I was being cheap, I just didn't think I should pay for something I didn't partake in, especially cause I was there mainly to drive my buddies home safely.

Okay, enough about that rant. I hope everyone has a good weekend.

  • That guy was a dick! They should have paid you for driving them around, except you are the grooms friend and that would have been cheap.

  • You are right...you shouldn't have to pay if you did not partake. Makes total sense.

    Have a great weekend.

  • No shit you should not have to pay especially since you are saving all of their asses by being the DD.

  • Let me get this right. Bachelor party, no strippers. What's the point of getting married if you can't look a naked knockers the night before the wedding? Whatever, I'm just cynical and a bit of a perv.
    You shouldn't have had to pay but if I were in that situation I would have just paid without mentioning anything about not having to pay. I'd pay fifty bucks just to avoid those types of situations.

  • I've been to too many bachelor parties...we always rent a bus. It's safer, and less of a hassle. Also, all the money is collected before everyone gets shit-faced.

  • I usually don't comment only 'lurk' on well written blogs-
    but must comment on this.
    2nd try...for some reason blogger doesn't recognize me?
    Alder said " brains evole at different levels, affecting the thought processes" your friend
    obviously hasn't evolved.
    Don't allow this to make you feel less than wonderful - for agreeing to drive and make the party a safe event!

  • I dont think you were cheap at ALL - Why the hell should you pay for someone else's alcohol ! - What a freak that dude is

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 9:52 AM  

  • Sometimes I think the designated driver deserves a medal. Money would be nice too.

    Yep, they should be paying YOU most definitely. SOMETIMES watching drunk people is amusing when you're sober, but quite often its ...NOT. :)

  • If I was having a bachelorette party, I would rent an escort that looks like Leo DiCaprio and re-enact the Titanic car scene...

  • You shouldn't have had to pay. Next time drop his drunk ass off way out of town and let him walk back.
