Question Am I a dick for this?

So as I walked home from a nightclub tonight 5 minutes ago, I was just about to reach my apartment as I saw what looked like an intoxicated bum crawling on the ground between me and my home.

I was scared shitless, as had he not moved, I would have walked 5 meters past him because his jacket blended that well with the background. I only noticed him because he started crawling.

I took a longer route home while observing the guy. He got into a sitting position and grabbed a nearby traffic sign for support, and sat there for a minute before I left.

But am I a dick for not asking him if he needed help? I mean it's not so cold outside yet that he would die if he passed out. On the other hand, if you pass out drunk you could vomit yourself to death, regardless of temperature...

He also saw me but didn't say or do anything and I'm thinking he would have shouted or gestured towards me if he was in a need of help. He looked more like he was on drugs/drunk than he looked physically injured.

Never been in this situation before.

Not gonna say that you're a dick, but you're a dick.


You could have at least asked the dude if he's alright.

I wouldn't say you're a dick, but you definitely should have asked him.

I think that literally every time we've exchanged words on here it's been about our respective countries...

But yeah I can admit my pants turned to ashes and now I don't have anything to wear to school tomorrow.

There's nothing you can do about it now, but maybe if this happens again, you'll be more inclined to help the guy out

Ha, well spotted... it was boring and awkward and I have to wake up early, that's why Would've been different story had I been drunk but I hate hanging around on the dance floor sober.

Eh, would love to be able to use that excuse but I'm a student instead.

Considering I do have to wake up early, I wonder what am I doing here. Goodnight fellas I'll check back at mornin'
