pet peeve #2 (yes, number two) [Jul. 7th, 2003|05:59 pm]
[emotional state |annoyedannoyed]

people who don't take responsibility for their actions. this includes stuff they do when drunk or stoned. it is your decision to get drunk or stoned, so anything you do as a result of that, is ultimately your decision, and you are responsible for those actions.

this especially pisses me off when people just use being drunk or stoned as an excuse, and knew perfectly well what they were doing at the time, and regret it later so it's an easy out.

there are a few exceptions to my "you are always responsible for what you do"
a- two young to know better. 4 year old finding a gun, thinking it's a toy since he owns toy guns that look like real ones and was never tought the difference, and killing his best friend, not responsable.
b- are deleriousely feverish.
c- are drugged against your will.
d- very occasionally, BWS (battered women's syndrom, and other related things) in extream cases.

i think this is a pet peave of most people. its more so with the stoned thing though because i find people using that more so than the alcohol thing these days. i mean usually to put it in perspective i like telling people that 'i didn't mean to rape her i was just really drunk' doesn't hold water in court.

i dunno, in general, the way some people get either drunk or stoned and just use it as an excuse to act stupid is really fucking annoying too.
