Are drunk people annoying??

I suppose I'm asking for a range of opinions. If someone isn't being aggressive, argumentative or opinionated but is still clearly quite drunk, slurring a very sober person just trying to have a pleasant night in, would this really get your goat?

Yes, my dp has a very clear line of handling his drink, when he's had one too many he's super sloppy and annoying he does my head in for no real reason, it goes down hill from there grin

It would really depend on the circumstances. I know I've come home merry from a night out a few times and my partner has just found it cute and funny, even though he doesn't really drink himself.

But if I was getting shitfaced by myself while we were supposed to be enjoying a romantic evening together then I think he'd probably be a little annoyed!

Yes. That's it.

I find drunk people really boring. Just really tedious company. They make me want to go to bed with a good book.

Yes. I can't stand drunk people. Even if they're just a bit tipsy. I find it a bit pathetic that they can't control their intake or just enjoy one or two.

I grew up in a pub.
Some people are quite funny when they are drunk. Some are not. It depends on the person (and their personality.)

Yes they are. One of the reasons I left my exDH. And why I avoid talking to my mother in the evening.

Yes, very annoying

To tolerate a drunk person I have to be equally as drunk.

Dlpdep Tue 18-Apr-17 22:17:44

Yes - try being on a night out and driving. I can do up to midnight then I am out of there.

When you're in and sober drunk people are funny for about 10 mins then you have to leave them to it and go to bed.

Thanks everyone. This is very interesting. I know "annoying" is subjective but it's still an eye opener.

Drunk people are only not annoying if you are drunk too.

MadMags Tue 18-Apr-17 22:23:08

Yes. It would do, and has done, my head in.

I take it you're the lush in this scenario?!

TheyDoItOnPurposeLynne Tue 18-Apr-17 22:25:02

Haha no I'm the sober "uptight" annoyee!! That's why I'm so delighted to find that I'm not the only one!

I don't drink and have limited tolerance for drunk people. Can deal with specific slightly giggly merry friends but that's about it.

I'm accept that I'm a bit biased though, having divorced an alcoholic.

frieda909 Tue 18-Apr-17 22:26:00

To add to my previous answer... actually, my ex used to get drunk without me a LOT and I found it incredibly annoying. He would think he was being hilarious when in fact he was just being obnoxious and sometimes even downright mean. He also had a habit of falling asleep on the toilet every time he had too much to drink. Ever tried dragging a 6ft 5, 17 stone man to bed with his pants around his ankles? Not fun.

So no, I don't think drunkenness is necessarily annoying in and of itself, but when you're regularly the 'sober one' having to deal with a drunk idiot it can really take its toll.

ChaiTeaTaiChi Tue 18-Apr-17 22:26:55

Depends. My OH is an adorable drunk. I'm a bit of a cunt though.

So 50/50, ime.

Yep. And I love booze, I just manage to not get shit faced and idiotic
