Ever woken up in the morning and remembered the utterly embarrassing drunken things you blurted out the night before? Don’t worry, we’ve all been there. Drunken rants often put the way we REALLY feel about things out in the open – which can be a good or bad thing.
1. The Bitchy Rant
You have an annoying friend/family member/co-worker you need to have a good whinge about, but you’re too worried that other people will think you’re a bitch if you say it sober. The drunken bitchy rant is the perfect way to vent as you lose your inhibitions and suddenly don’t care if people think you’re a huge gossip. Note: could be awkward the next day pending on who you are bitching to and about.
2. The Ex Rant
Alcohol often results in a long ranting session about your ex. It’s a good way to let off steam and may even help you realise how wrong they were for you. But avoid drunk dialling and ranting to him/her at all costs and stick to venting to your mates instead. Otherwise you’ll regret it in the morning!
3. The Confessional Rant
This type of drunken rant can have disastrous impacts the morning after. Especially if you let slip a secret someone told you to keep. Or you reveal you hooked up with a friend’s boyfriend. Serious confessions like this are best revealed in a sober state and private setting. Plus alcohol will definitely elevate the drama of a situation if your confession isn’t a very good one.
4. The I-Didn’t-Need-To-Know-That Rant
A good rule to have when it comes to drunken rants is if you would never say something sober, don’t say it when you’re drunk. So think twice before you make a TMI statement about your bowel movements or any other private business.
5. The Online Rant
Alas, possibly the worst of all drunken rants. After downing 10 too many vodka lemonades, you take to Facebook and post your innermost thoughts on a most likely personal topic, topped off with appalling spelling. What makes this type of rant so bad is that you’ll most likely post it in the wee hours of the morning in a drunken state, forgetting you’ve actually posted it until the next morning when you wonder why you have so many notifications. WHEN EVERYONE HAS SEEN IT. Alcohol – 1. You – epic embarrassment.
