Love Q&A: Should You Say Something To A Friend Driving Drunk?

Q.

Every time this couple drives home from one of our parties, they leave drunk. Do we say something?

A.

Yes! It’s completely unacceptable to let friends leave sloshed, no matter what the circumstances. The only way to break the habit is to acknowledge it. Next time you throw a party, shoot them an email beforehand saying you’d be happy to have them stay in your guest room so they don’t hit the roads after having a few too many. They should get the hint. Or you could also have the numbers of a local cab company on hand and mention it when inviting people so no one feels singled out at the end of the night. Say, “Transportation will be available for anyone who wants to go a little crazy.” If you don’t want the hassle, only invite that couple for daytime events so you can actually enjoy your party. It’s not your job to play babysitter.
