People Describe The Worst Party They've Ever Attended

Some years back, I attended a party that was hosted by some of the blandest 20-somethings I've ever had the displeasure of being in a room with. Even if there was something worth talking about with these people, I don't think I'd have been able to stomach too much time with them. Ever been in a situation where you just didn't mesh with any of the people around you? That's what this was like for me. Let's just say I was happy to bow out of there as quickly as I could; the good ol' fashioned Irish Goodbye came very much in handy that night.

But that's on the lighter side: I haven't even mentioned the party I went to that ended with someone getting into an accident while drunk behind the wheel (and thankfully no one was hurt).

And things can be much worse than that. Much worse.

People had plenty to share about their own nights out after Redditor eddiemurphyscareer asked the online community,

"What happened at the worst party you've ever been to?"

"I wasn't great friends with him..."

"I went to a friend's graduation party after high school. I wasn't great friends with him, but I figured I would stop by with my girlfriend because he was nice enough to invite me.

The party was so done up, tables full of food, streamers, confetti, all that. And my girlfriend and I were the only ones there. I felt awful. His parents clearly went all out to celebrate it, and it was so uncomfortable being one of 5 people there (including him and his parents). I felt awful for him. We stayed for hours out of pity, and just kind of making small talk. Super depressing."

"I quickly left..."

"I was invited to a birthday party and I took a 6-pack of beer. I found out halfway through the party that it was actually an anniversary party for the woman's first year of being sober. Everyone at the party was from the group at Alcoholics Anonymous. I was the only person standing there with a beer in my hand.

I quickly left and was too embarrassed to take the remaining beers. For years after, I wondered whether any of those people drank the rest of my beer and fell off the wagon as a result."

Noooo.

Noooooo.

I am cringing on your behalf.

"I threw a surprise birthday party..."

"I threw a surprise birthday party for my middle sister last year and she got super upset. She cried and made a huge scene in front of everyone at the restaurant. She thought her boyfriend was gonna propose because he wouldn't tell her where they were going. She's the worst."

This must have been so awkward. I bet the wait staff had a field day with that one.

"Oh, dear God..."

"Oh dear God, I made out with my ex-wife's mother at a poolside party. Yes, booze was involved."

So tell us...

Did Stacy's mom have it going on?

"I went to the beach..."

"I went to the beach for a friend's birthday party. After the sun went down, we drove back to her house (about 30 minutes away) to continue the party.

When we got home, her dog was dead. Because she lives in a rural area, the other guys and I had to dig a hole and bury it so the coyotes wouldn't consume the carcass.

Burying a dead dog is the weirdest thing I've ever done at a birthday party."

This is so sad. We feel for her. Losing a pet can feel like losing a member of your family. It's devastating.

"I was at a trashy..."

"I was at a trashy shotgun-wedding reception and slipped off to pee in the bushes. When I came back there were two blonde strippers dressed as cops "arresting" the groom.

I said "who the f*** rents strippers for a wedding" really loudly right as the music cut out. They weren't strippers."

Does the fact that they weren't strippers make this story any less cringey?

"Anyway..."

"Guys that I and my roommates would buy weed from lived in the apartment above us one year. They had this huge party and invited us as a courtesy like you tend to do when living in student housing.

Anyway, by huge I mean huge. They had smoke machines, strobe lights, multiple tables of beer pong going, and kegs. Crammed into this tiny apartment, so it basically spilled out onto the cement landing outside their apartment that leads into the other apartments on that floor.

I was feeling a bit cramped and uncomfortable with the sheer amount of people and noise so I decided to hop downstairs, grab a water bottle out of the fridge and take a moment to wind down. During this brief 5 minute hiatus, the cops busted it. Since it was student housing they had reason to believe there was a lot of underage drinking going on, plus just noise complaints.

Anyway, they collected a bunch of people's IDs to check. Which they couldn't really force or anything as far as I know, but these were all young drunk college students who were terrified of the intimidating police officers so they just lined up and handed their ID's over no question asked so they could check them.

Anyway, when the cops initially came there was some panic from a few kids. I don't know if they were underage, or just panicking to panic, but they were just outside my door when it all went down so I pulled them into my apartment (directly below where the party was happening) and set up a sort of triage area.

I sat there for about a half-hour making sandwiches and handing out water to these students who obviously had never been so smashed in their lives and didn't know how to deal with it.

At one point I poked my head out of the door to see where my roommates went just as one of the officers was leading a bunch of sad-looking kids down the stairs, he turned to me while pointing up towards the apartment and asked "you involved in this at all?" and I was just like "nope" and closed the door."

You're the hero they needed! Well done.

"Let me put it this way..."

"Let me put it this way: around midnight some dude asked me if I had found his front teeth..."

augmenwihimmel

Oh, dear.

I hate it when that happens.

"I lost a shoe..."

"I lost a shoe whilst underage drinking at a party crashed by cops. I had to walk home with one f****** shoe. Found it the next day in a tree a few blocks away."

Hopefully none of you have lost your teeth at a party... we hope.

Most of us party from time to time. Keep it safe and fun and there will be plenty more parties to attend in the future.

Oh, the beginning of the interwebs.

Those were the days.

We definitely did not see what was to come.

Maybe it should've stayed simple.

We'll never know.

I fear death.

I wake up in cold sweats dreaming about it.

I think about it in my waking hours.

It's an obsession and clearly, I'm not alone.

But there are more preferred ways to exit.

All we can do is hope to be lucky enough to skip the mercilessly awful.

Please just let me go quick and in my sleep.

Most Americans think nothing of their humdrum daily activities or amenities available to them.

However, others with a different perspective might romanticize the things that are otherwise commonplace ideas and concepts for US citizens, like going to a diner or riding the school bus.
