I’m sure this isn’t news to anyone, but some people get really emotional and tend to spill their guts when they have a little too much to drink. Sound familiar?
And sometimes you end up playing therapist to your friends all night after a few rounds of booze and then the really dark stuff comes out.
In this AskReddit article, people share the weirdest and creepiest confessions they’ve heard from drunk people.
“Bartender here….. so many stories…… probably most terrifying is the woman who came into my bar years ago and had 2 shots and a drink and was real quiet for the first hour. Then she called me over and asked if I could call the police. I said what was the problem. She then told me that she had just stabbed and sliced the neck of a mugger in the alley and wanted to make sure he was dead first before she reported it.
NOTE: police were called, mugger found dead, woman not arrested or charged. She denied ever telling me that she wanted to wait an hour before calling the police—-claimed that she had passed out in the alley and woke up then came into the bar in shock.”
2. Later denied it
“I had a neighbor, she was young and a serious alcoholic. She’d been a nurse before I met her but was under some type of investigation because pills at her job had gone missing.
One night she was super drunk and told me that she had put pillows over some of the elderly patients faces and suffocated them because she couldn’t stand to see them suffer anymore (bedsores and just in pain).
I asked her about it when she’d sobered up and she denied saying that to me. She passed away about three years ago so I’ll never know if what she said was true or not.”
“That they steal money from passed out drunk hookups. That’s the last time this person came to hang out at my place.”
4. That’s embarrassing
“My now ex-girlfriend confessed to having to wipe my butt after I drunkenly took a dump during post-21st birthday shenanigans. Amuses me now but I was embarrassed for a long time after.”
5. Probably should keep that quiet
“Once, a dude wearing a Tigger costume walked into a Halloween house party I was in. It was like 4am so we were all already smashed.
He sat on my lap and tried to convince me that I am a trans guy and should transition and date him.
Then he told me in detail how he violently hates his mum and exactly how he would like to murder and dismember her.
He then also tried to convince me that I hate my mother (I do not) and I should kill her. When I said no, he yelled at me, left through the front door and threw himself down the stairs.
He was fine.”
6. Heroin is bad for you
“I work at a bar and our staff had a huge problem with heroin a couple years ago. It was to the point that management was regularly having to sweep the bathroom for needles. Anyway, one of the guys was a friend of mine and I thought he was an overall good guy despite his crippling addiction. One night we were having a few drinks after work and he got a little too drunk and admitted that a couple months prior he had bought stuff from someone he didn’t know and didn’t trust so he called up a girl he’d used with before and told her he had stuff and could he come over.
He let her go first and she immediately had a terrible reaction to whatever was in the drugs; seizing and ODing in front of him. He left her house without notifying the police or trying to help. He ODd himself a couple months after.”
7. That is insane
“Not me, but a friend. He was out with a girl he didn’t know too well & they got drunk; she said she was initiated into a gang. They just collected stray people they didn’t know, took them to a warehouse, beat them up, & when they were thoroughly beaten/broken down she & the other recruits administered an overdose of heroin. Killing them.
There are weird people out there; you need to be careful.”
8. Stay away from him
“My uncle, who has always been an oasis of sanity and understanding in my family, got super drunk and told me he doesn’t really care about anyone, not even me, and that he fantasizes constantly about murdering everyone he loves, starting with the people closest to him first. He would take his time doing it.
I told him he’d been winning the fight against those thoughts every day for forty years, and he’d been 100% successful so far, and tried to change the topic. He started laughing and started carrying on about how fun it would be to give in to those urges and how no one would be able to stop him and he got so…excited by it? That he had to go sit out in the subzero weather at 3am on the porch for a couple minutes to calm down.
He was really graphic with what he wanted to do to his sister (my mom) and told me that when he lived with my grandmother, he would sometimes stand over her while she slept thinking of how much he hated being around her and wishing he could smother her. He has had waking blackouts in the past so I took this issue to my parents who have dealt with it before and haven’t really been close to him since. I think he doesn’t remember telling me any of this.”
9. Ice breaker
“Not long ago my friend was outside for a smoke at a small house party and a girlfriend of a mutual friend came up to him and decided to let him know that she had gotten an abortion earlier that week. She didn’t even introduce herself, just went straight to that.”
10. Too much information
“Drunk girl that was hitting on me randomly went on a rant that it was unfair that her friend has slept with 30-odd people and was STD free, yet she had only slept with like 15 and ended up with Herpes…
I mean… what was I meant to do with that??”
11. Keep that to yourself
“Last night I was at a comedy club. It was the 9-11 set, do late enough that most people had probably had dinner and some pre-show drinks.
This one couple was seated at the front, center table, literally at the base of the mic stand. Through three different comedians he’s hooting and hollering, clapping at everything, laughing at jokes during the set up etcetera, classic drunk distraction. So finally the third comedian decides to lay into him a bit.
He claims to have been together with the woman for 20 years (she corrects him: 6 months). When asked about his job, he claims to be “in the miracle business” (she corrects: real estate).
When asked about having troubles in relationships, he offers (brags, really) that he went to prison for three years for selling 200 pounds of weed each month. Sure, a bit awkward this drunk fool is hijacking the show to talk about selling drugs at wholesale.”
12. Sounds fishy
“This wasn’t just alcohol I think, but I might have heard a guy confess to deliberately driving his car into a can*l to destroy ‘evidence.’ I don’t know what evidence though.”
“In 2006 my mom’s boyfriend told me he killed a man and told me how he did it. He told me it was the best way to kill a person and I needed to know for self defense.
My mother had allowed us to have a party at her house and we were all pretty drunk at the time. The story gets really weird weeks later when my friend is over and she has a picture of her deceased father on her keychain. My mom’s boyfriend freaks out and takes me aside and explained that was the man he killed years ago.
I was always under the assumption that he was just found dead from like a heart attack or something but actually he was murdered the same way my mom’s boyfriend described to me. I researched a little and found that it was in fact a cold case from about 2000 or 2001. I called the tip line number and told them what I knew but as far as I know nothing ever came of it.
My mom’s boyfriend is dead now and I still believe he murdered my friend’s dad.”
14. It’s all true
“I had been talking to a guy for a while, he was friends with my best friend. He had a “crazy ex gf” who was trying to pin a bunch of crap on him and called him abusive etc. I didn’t believe it because he was cute and I was young and dumb.
One night we were over at my best friend’s place drinking, and later on in the night when we all went to pass out (me and him in guest room) he started telling me how everything she said was true, and how he had put his hands around her neck and did all this other crap.
The next day he didn’t remember anything and kept trying to kiss me etc, I told my friend what had happened and we never spoke to him again after that. Also, his ex ended up pressing charges, so thankfully there was a little justice there.”
15. Another uncle story
“My uncle got drunk and told me that even though my aunt/his wife had explicitly stated that she did not want a third child, he lied to her about wearing a condom and got her pregnant. She tried to get an abortion but either he or circumstances prevented her. She loves her third kid to death but I was pretty horrified with this story.”
