A couple weeks ago, my husband and I were invited to my friends house (let’s call her Mel). Although my husband isn’t friends with her husband (Todd), he brought him a bottle of whiskey to be nice.
Todd ended up getting pretty drunk off the whiskey and getting pretty argumentative. All of my friends (the women) were in another room talking but Todd, my husband and I plus 2 other people were in another room. Todd then ended up saying something that my husband and I didn’t agree with. At first, we were calmly discussing it but then Todd started raising his voice. It was a completely stupid argument but when he saw we wouldn’t agree with him, he started getting pretty belligerent and dropping a lot of f bombs and insults. Things like Do you even have an effing brain?! Are you an effing moron?! That kind of thing.
Me and another guy said to move on or stop bc Todd was acting up. He continued. My husband then told him to basically shut the hell up because he’s being rude to me. Todd then tells us that he doesn’t like our attitude and to get the eff out of his house. We get up to leave but have to walk by him to get to the doorway. I get up first and go to my friend Mel to tell her we’re leaving bc things have escalated.
In that same time, my husband has to walk by Todd who is shouting at him to get the eff out of his house. My husband gets into a shouting match with him. At this point, Mel is on the scene, who has only seen this shouting match which is heated and saying something like Although my husband feels like I was disrespected, to respect her house and get out and then shuts the door in our faces.
I thought I’d get a text message the next morning apologizing for Todds behaviour or asking what happened. Neither of those happened. It’s been a couple weeks with no word.
I’m assuming Todd brushed it off to his wife like me or my husband were the shit disturber even though he was the one who was wasted (neither me or my husband were).
Next weekend, there will be another group event and not really sure what to say or do. They will be there. I don’t want to stir stuff up but I also am not going to pretend like they weren’t rude.
