Drunk Dialling: call 999 and get them to take me away

By Beaut.ie | May 15 2012 | 12 Comments

I read the post on auto-correct issues with equal parts amusement and shame. For you see, I am the queen of these unintentionally filthy texts. As they’re accidental, they can be quickly forgiven.

The real devil in the phone fail world is the conversations that ensue after a few beers.

My most mortifying drunk dial moment was ringing my ex a few days after we’d broken up. I’ll break the ice, I thought, actually stay friends this time, it’ll be GRAND. Stumbling out to the smoking area, I fumbled around with my phone and held it to my swaying head. Did I end up laying the foundations for a mature friendship?

Did I feck. The ex was in bed. In bed with a girl. How do I know? Because, after some small talk, the ex passed the phone to the girl and gifted me the most awkward conversation I have ever had in my life.

After that incident, I learned if you’re not legal to drive, you’re not safe to call. Still, it’s okay to bask in the hilarity of other people’s booze-induced texts – all the fun, none of the mortification.

So, let us know, what has been your finest drunk dial, incoming or outgoing and have you learned to keep your phone out of your left hand when there’s a wine in your right?

Life, WTF , , ,

    I am a drunk texted more than a drunk dialler. It never ever ended well :( If you have to be locked before you text someone then it is not a good idea to text them!
    My “best” were texts about what a great night I was having, and oops, “accidentally” send them to someone Ihad a crush on but no reason to text. Morto.
    At the time it’s a subtle genius plot, but now, looking back, cringe!
    The accidentally on purpose ones were the worst, esp when you didn’t get a reply!

    I had a crush on a local taxi driver once and any time after a night out I’d ring said taxi company asking specifically for him and once I text the taxi company asking them to give him my number….Its a couple of years since that and I still cringe now just thinking about it…

    Does anyone else just get the urge to chat when they get drunk? One of my college mates is a disaster for it and always calls me at 4 in the morning for a chinwag – although it hasnt gone down well with the boy so I now have to turn my phone on silent at night…..

    Sounds like really bad form for the Ex to put the other girl on the phone!Sounds like you’re well shot of him.

    I was seeing a bloke for a few months when I was 17 and broke up a few weeks before I turned 18.So the night after my birthday I’m out and end up completely drunk and calling him in the wee hours of the morning telling him how much I missed him.Oh the shame and to add insult to injury I knew he’d been cheating on me and still was a drunken mess.

    I recently broke up with by boyfriend of two years and were still talking and friends but he was the winner in the break up (ie ended up best off) so I’ve been taking it handy with the booze because I’m sure ther’ll be some form of call or text to him.Either giviing out buckets or expressing my undying love.

    And I’ve been there with the accidentaly on purpose texts…whoops!

    Would not be impressed if a guy answered the phone while we were in bed

    AislingEllie & Gossip Gal – I deserved it tbh, shouldn’t have picked up the phone!

  • Aisling Aisling says:

    Oh that’s terrible Lorraine what an absolute bastard! What the hell did he put you on to her for? I bet she was dying too

  • Beth TV says:

    The scary thing was, your man was probably thinking something along the line of threesome having taken your call. Gas one though, Lorraine.

    Queen of the drunken text – drunken texts to the current crush at 2:40am to casually let them know you are thinking about them.. There is nothing casual about a 2:40 am text. Have learnt now to delete said number before a night out :)
