So there are rules to drinking that aren't really set in stone but generally recognised by most people, but i've noticed a few people aren't familiar with them, these are through personal experience although i didn't do either of these things-

If you're going to a party or gathering, expect to bring your own booze unless you are told otherwise, if you forget or can't get booze or whatever and there is some on the table, at least ask before having it, i went to a party a few weeks back and brought some beers with me, left them on the table or something, then some people turned up who i didn't know, 2 of them were looking around sheepishly and then one of them took my beer off the table and handed it to the other, i was stunned, eventually i ran out (i took 7 with me) so i went to the shop and got a few more, i left 2 in the fridge and drank one, when i went to get another, both of them were gone.

If you are going to a club and get there quite early, don't be the first people on the dancefloor, you'll look stupid, i've been out with a few eager people before and its really not too cool to be first on the dancefloor.

Post yours.
WHOMP

Think of that next time you are not allowed to laugh.

Nothing wrong with being on the dance floor first. If you enjoy dancing and look stupid who cares. The people that are laughing at you are having fun and so are you. A win win situation.

Also someone has to start dancing.

If you spill precious drink you deserve a beating, or at least torrents of abuse hurled your way.

Nobody should water down bottles of spirits after drinking some uninvited. It fools no-one and makes the rest of the bottle taste like crap.

if you're a guy and you throw up, continue to drink lest you have your man-card stripped from your person immediately.

Those dudes would have lost a hand if they touched my booze. Thats why I carry around my booze with me at parties haha. If someone asks for a shot they can have it. But alot of people are douchebags and just assume they can have whatever they see.

Nonsense.. I used to drink all my grandparents and moms booze when I was younger and the bottle would end up 75% water and they never caught on haha.

i don't see why we need to have "rules", sure there's always room for general acts of respect and what not like the first one you made TS, but after that i think it's kinda pointless.

My friend had a house party and his parents incredibly stupidly have a "vintage"wines rack under the chimney, which they forgot to move with the rest of the furniture. Needless to say there was very little wine left in the morning.

yes, never leave your drink on display. made that mistake with a litre of russia's finest.

That's not really an unwritten rule, and not really exclusive to that situation. The idea of not taking other people's stuff is a pretty common one.

Yeah but when I drink I usually want to get drunk and watered down vodka doesn't cut it for me.
#24
I don't agree. Around here, everybody brings some booze to the party and it all goes into the fridge. Whenever someone wants something to drink, he just gets what he wants. We call this concept sharing.

EDIT: It has to be made clear that it works that way and that everybody is okay with it. So far, everybody has been.

never drink with eastern europeans. when you make a grocery list for booze and YOU chip in YOUR money for YOUR booze that YOU requested, it's yours. in their post-soviet mindset they retain the idea that all is held in common. just because the booze was bought at one time by one person with all the money lumped together does not mean all that booze belongs to everyone equally.

I agree man. I guess they just cut their booze with too much mixer and couldn't tell. I would know instantly.

I only have one main rule which is if you spill someone's drink you get them a new one, regardless of whether they are a friend or stranger.

Never...ever throw away booze. Someone at the party/gathering will drink it.

Well i mean at the party they had some beers there (a bunch of cans) and some spirits and stuff but they said to bring more alcohol anyway, so i just got a few bottles, a few of the first lot went in the fridge and went untouched other than by me, and yeah these aren't so much rules as general ettiquete.
WHOMP

well being mexican, we are more family oriented. so for us, you always(or usually) bring some booze to the party. and what's at the party is for SHARING. because seriously, if you think about it, what's the point of bringing your own bottle of rum to a party if you're going to hide, drink, and keep it to yourself? if that's the case, then GTFO, go home and enjoy your bottle alone if you're not going to share. trust me, there have been many parties i've been to that i have enjoyed, some which i have left just because i notice someone bring a bottle, show it off, then put it back in the purse/bag/coat. it pisses me the **** off

/rant

tl;rd if you bring booze to a party, SHARE!

EDIT: oh and don't be greedy. just because you see a fridge with 10 bottles of vodka doesn't mean you should down them all in a second. that's just rude and disrespectful.

this.

I can't see the point in being anal about whose booze is whose when in a few hours you probably won't be able to recognise yourself in a mirror. a party is a social event, there's nothing less social than "that's mine not yours".

Not really, if someone asks me for a beer they can have one but i payed for it with my own money and made the choice of beer.

I don't want my nice beer to be drunk by a load of people who have brought pisswater and me being left with that.

I'm talking about big partys here with a lot of people i don't know. If it just my friends then i would have no problem in sharing.

If a host has a lot of booze left over the next day that was left out for communal drinking, it is not cool to take it away with you the next day. There have been many occasions when this has occurred to me and friends of mine and it is not cool.

If someone has established their sleeping area, has their shoes off and is intentionally sleeping, they are OFF LIMITS and untouchable and it is very uncool to do anything to them.
Passed out guests have no rules or obligations towards them.
However, if a "intentionally sleeping" guest complains of noise-levels while trying to get sleep, they are no longer off limits.

Spill someones drink, you owe them a new one, no argument about it.

Dont use the nearest can as an ashtray without checking to see if it is already empty.

Dont tamper with peoples drinks, this is an offense punishable by death, or being kicked out. This has only happened to me a few times but it is very annoying, leave your beer down for a second and someone drops a bit of Cider into it for no reason. I get horrible stomach pains from cider, not cool.

Those are just a few rules me and my drinkin' buddies enforce

slightly contradictory there.

If there's no condition for refusal why require them to ask?

if you're so protective about what you drink, why are you at a party and not drinking at home alone? the people and the socialising are important at a party, the drinking is secondary.

Haha, that always happens to me man. I bring good beer like Newcastle and everyone else brings Natty light or Beast and they all want my shit. GO PAY 15 BUCKS FOR YOUR OWN 12 PACK!!

The SINGLE MOST IMPORTANT RULE in our apartment was:

(And this was written on the wall in sharpie so everyone knew. It was also in all caps like it is below, so don't yell at me)


PARTY RULE No. 1:
DON'T BE A DOUCHE:
IF YOU SPILL ANY ALCOHOL ON ANY SURFACE THAT ISN'T CARPET
YOU GET ON ALL FOURS AND LAP THAT SHIT UP
AIR AND PUSSY ARE THE ONLY FREE THINGS IN THIS HOUSE!


Ironically enough, I was first to have to abide by this rule.
Knock, Knock

Who's there?
