  • well they do say that when you are drunk you will say what is on your mind and the truth will come out. maybe she was just being overprotective of her son. if you have give her no cause for feeling this way then she is probably feeling that her son doesnt need her anymore etc etc
  • I do believe that people say what they don't want to say when they are sober but that being drunk, they have less judgment and less of a sense of what is appropriate to say and what is not. She may be reacting to the thought of her son growing up and not needing her anymore and of course, to someone that could be seen as immature, she thinks you are the reason.
  • Alcohol tends to loosen the tongue, a fact that has been parlayed to someone elses advantage since Lot's two beautiful daughters got him drunk enough to get pregnant by him (thus the lineage for the Moabites and the children of Ammon). (Genesis 19:30-38). The point is that, yes, people say and do when they are drunk what they would not ordinarily do sober. What is important is do YOU consider yourself a 'bad person'? That is not to completely disregard comments, but to carefully look at the situation and consider the source. If this is confirmation to you (i.e., you are a gang member assisting in revenge hits and killings, as an extreme example) and what you hear from a variety of credible sources, then look at it. I suspect not; rather you are the victim of a callous person with a loose tongue.
  • Yes, unfortunately people do often say what's on their mind when they're drunk.... stuff that they keep to themselves when sober. Was it the ancient greeks or romans who said 'In Vino Veritas'(or something like that) which apparently means 'In wine there is truth'? It's OK though if they're telling you something nice!!
  • Ignore her. It is what her son thnks that counts.
  • Yes they mean what they say,the drink gives them the courage to say whats really on their minds,hence the saying Dutch Courage,and what makes me angry is they usually say i dont remember what i said but they do.
  • In vino est veritas
  • If you remember that she is a very sick person then you can handle it better. The problem is her not you. Don't take it to heart. Be as kind and loving to her as you can be. Teach her what loving is.
  • I WAS TOLD PEOPLE DO TELL THE TRUE MORE WHEN THEY ARE DRUNK, BUT DON'NT REMEBER WHAT THEY SAID AFTER BEING SOBER.
