It’s axiomatic that the more you drink, the worse your judgment becomes. Hell, some folks can’t even tell their own house from someone else’s. Take this bloke, for example … Per The Northern Territory News:
A woman at home alone was terrified when she heard someone having a shower in her house.
Police later found a red-faced neighbour who was so drunk that he went into the house because he thought it was his own.
Perhaps red-faced, but at least clean …
The man got lost on the way to his house in Katherine on Wednesday night. He walked into the home and took a shower in an attempt to sober up.
The 34-year-old householder was asleep upstairs. She woke up, heard the water running and frantically rang the police.
When officers arrived, they found the 42-year-old sitting on the woman’s verandah – dressed again.
He said “sorry” to the police and woman many times after realizing his mistake. The man was taken into protective custody to sleep off his big night.
“Excuse me, sir. Northern Territory News. So what happened last night?”
The man sobered up yesterday but was too embarrassed to talk to the NT News.
As you might imagine, this has happened before.
A couple once found a man cooking breakfast in their kitchen in the early hours.
And a woman in Darwin’s northern suburbs was watching TV when a drunk strolled in through the front door thinking it was his house. He left when she screamed.
Oops. Here’s the source.
