A stranger left an amusing note, along with a water bottle, for a drunk man he found passed out in the front seat of a running car while leaving a local pub.
According to the stranger, he found the man passed out with his car running in the early morning hours.
“I found this guy passed out drunk with his car running outside of a bar at 3:00 am. The bars close at midnight where I am, so I tried to wake him up, but he just kept mumbling and continued to sleep,” he wrote on Imgur. “ I decided to hide his keys in the backseat, just in case a cop came, and left him a note and some water. I realized once I was sober that a cop would probably just read the note and arrest him anyway, but at least I tried.”
The stranger explain in a caption alongside photos of the note that he lived in an apartment above the bar, and brought the water bottle down to him after writing the note.
“I found you passed out drunk with your car running, so I hid your keys under the atlas in your back seat. I hope you get home safe. I’m not your hero,” the humorous note read. “I’m your silent guardian. A watchful protector. The drunk knight.”
Response to the note was mixed, with many criticizing the stranger for having the wrong intentions when it came to hiding the drunk man’s keys.
“You’re right. You aren’t a hero. This assh**e was planning on driving his car in that state and you ‘helped him’. Call the cops next time,” one commenter wrote on Imgur.
“You should have kept the keys, (at least the ones for the car), and left them at the bar the next day. No note either,” another added.
Do you think the stranger had good intentions by leaving the note and hiding the drunk man’s keys?
