Thats the lession I learned lastnight.
I had a party at my house because my mom is gone. So this chick had a shot, but just before she had it she said she needed to leave in 20 min. She had only had one shot before that. When it was time to leave, I let her leave; she seemed fine to drive.
Anyway, she got an MIP. Which means that she indeed WAS fine to drive, however, she is underage and had alchahol in her system. (the way I see it, im in the clear for letting her go). Anyhow, heres the part where I learn the lession where if your an asshole, you come out on top:
She called me and had me talk to her parents. They insisted to her to talk to me. They ended up comming over to my house. They inisted I call up my dad so they could talk to him. They tried to talk to the parents of everyone who was here. That didnt happen. The thing is (and I told them this..) was that I could have told them to leave at any moment. Im 19, and everyone except for one kid at the party was over 18, so legally speeking, our parents dont need to know. In other words, I know I didnt need to let them talk to my dad, but I did anyway, because im not an asshole. I also know that I didnt need to let them on my moms property, or in her house, but I did anyway. I like to be a reasonable human being, and would like to think that if I am, other human beings will be reasonable with me, but I suppose not. Her parents pointed out that if I told them they couldnt be on my property, they could call the cops. Thats true, however, I pointed out that if they did that, the cops would come, knock on the front door, ask to come in, I would say no, then they would leave. We hid all the alchahol from the door, so they dont have any reason to come in, and they need a warrent.
so: be an asshole, you'll come out on top!
