This is a question Drunk Parents

Watching the old man swing home from the pub and start arguing with Newsnight can be either funny, slightly unnerving or just plain terrifying. Tell us about daft things parents have done while they've been in their cups.

My Mother
My mother used to work as a families liaison officer for "wait for it"
Alcoholics Anonymous.
Well one particular Christmas she announced that she was off to the office party, which consisted of a West End show, a nice meal and then home.
All good and well you think, when you consider who she was working for, well to cut a long story short the phone rang at 1 in the morning, it was a policeman could I please come down to the local railway station and collect my mother who was as pissed as a fart and her equally pissed workmates.
I was so embarassed my mother could barely stand, one of her colleagues had thrown up in her handbag, another was vomiting in the gutter when I arrived.
I had to drive them all home, but the best bit was calling home at 07:30 to ask if she had had a restful night and being told to "fuck off", the upside was of course after this when she starts to crow about the evils of the demon drink, all I have to do is remind her of that evening.

Good story

... though perhaps "reminding her of the incident" only serves to prove _her_ point, rather than act as some kind of counter argument.

AA doesn't employ family liasion officers
In fact AA doesn't employ anyone as a rule - there are some admin people who stuff envelopes etc at the UK General Service Office in York.

Maybe you are thinking of some commercial rehab operation?

I do hope you're not suggesting that this story is made up.

I try not to have any opinion on such matters ;-)

She probably works in the call centre,
but raith50 has glammed up her job title a little.
