how responsible are you when out drinking?

Yesterday Friday night,we were called by our very close friend she was worried her husband could not be reached on his cell phone and had not got home.we had to get out of bed and start calling his other friends and luckily before we got into the car to go looking around for him,another friend called back to say he had been seen at a pub enjoying himself and he was okay.it was annoying and we spent the better part of today with my husband trying to reconcile him with his wife who was so angry at this habit,she says he keeps having her worried that something bad has happened to him yet he is out having a drink,when out enjoying yourself do you take the time to let others know you are okay and what time you are likely to get home?

This person is so insensitive and irresponsible. He must be aware at all times that another person is waiting for him and he must notify his wife that he will be late so his wife will not be stupid to wait for him. I really hate this kind of person because they are not aware of the feelings of the people who cares for them. When I'm out for drinks, I make sure that nobody will be disturb and bother because I will come late.

In my country there`s a law that says that you either drive or drink. The cops will fine you and take away your license if you do both. Although I think that this is too harsh, a lot of people have changed their drinking habits outside from home. I suppose bar owners are not so happy about this, but there are way too many accidents due to drunken drivers. As for telling your spouse where you are, in my opinion that should be done whether you are drinking or not.

I can understand the wife worrying because anyone who has been drinking will never be safe in going home. He can't drive himself home and we just don't know what will happen when there are other drunk people around. The husband should be considerate to his wife and stop putting her in such anxiety.

How can someone be so selfish? No wonder she was so angry, I think anyone would be, you start to think of all sorts when your partner doesn't come home, your mind conjures up all these horrid scenarios. My ex used to be like that, they would drink to excess and totally forget the time, they gave no thought to anyone, then they have the cheek to phone me up to pick them up, and give no apology or explanation to where they have been, and I am expected to accept it? Because I do a lot of driving, I don't drink at all, but even when I don't have the car I have the maximum of one, no more. I see what drinking too much does to people!
