Hello friends, Last day i saw a man who was a bit over drunk, and shouting somethings about his sorrows and worries on some family matters near my college at the road side,and one of his friends was hardly trying to manage this fellow. Do you know how to deal with such over drunk people? I think the best way is agree with them on whatever be they are saying about..ah. What do you think?

For women, first thing to do is to stay away. Some people who are really really drunk can no longer control themselves and I've seen some violence happening between drunk people. So unless you are strong enough to take care of things, just keep your distance.

It is hard to talk to a drunk because a drunk is confused and not knowing it. I think it is best not to argue with them but be kind with a kind voice and try to help calm them down if you cannot calm them down them sometimes it is best to back off some and hope no harm but if it gets out of hand then let the law help them sleep it off before someone gets hurt. I hate to see anyone be arrested but if it is to harm themselves or others it is the best.

Being in the hospitality industry i have dealt with many drunk guests. Here are some tips from our manual: * Never mention to a drunk that he is drunk. * Never approach the drunk guest alone, keep a help standby, for help if the situation turns violent. * Never let the drunk drive his/her vehicle. we call a cab & pack them off in that. * if its my friend i try not to excite him in any way. asking them to concentrate on a complex mathematical problem has sobered many of my friends.
