Won't Miss #57 - drunkenness as an excuse

If something rude, stupid, or reckless is done under the influence of alcohol, the Japanese are likely to see being drunk as a reasonable excuse. Their culture doesn't seem to hold people as responsible for their actions if they are drunk, even though the drinker made the choice to drink and put themselves in a position to harm others either mentally or physically.

I won't miss people viewing drunkenness as a reasonable excuse for bad acts.

  1. Something that I can't stand is having alcohol forcibly pushed on you. Also, when your not drunk, getting chaperoned as if you are. GET OVER IT, and stop pouring me more booze already!
