Asshole passed out in my tent, sleeping in my bed!

Post by naugasnake » Fri Sep 05, 2008 1:15 pm

Every year our camp seems to turn into a drunk magnet when some asshole wonders into our camp looking for a place to sleep off whatever they consumed way too much of. This year was no exception, however, this was to be the last time I help anybody out that is too drunk/stoned/high to help themselves.

This all happened on Thursday night/Friday morning at around 3:30am.

On Thursday night, returning to get a jacket from our tent, my fiancé discovered some asshole passed out on our air mattress. She immediately got me, and I went running into the tent, worked up, ready for a fight. I found a guy 6' tall, curly sandy blond hair, unshaven, passed out. This guy was so drunk it took me 10 minutes to wake him up. I went from simply nudging him to literally slapping him on the chest arms and legs (his face was next), and yelling at him to wake his sorry ass up. He was barely able to speak, and kept mumbling to himself his words slurring so bad I couldn’t make out anything. Finally he was able to utter a phrase I could barely make out “Dude, you’re not going to believe this, but I’m having a really great burn.â€

We Should Have Sharpied Him

Post by Dark Gnome » Fri Sep 05, 2008 1:32 pm

The Sharpie (r) pen art could have been unprecedented. Had we known how our encounter with our playa derelict would have gone by morning, we could have seriously had our way with him. Super-gluing his pee-hole shut would have been up there, if not for it being so cruel and unusual. Or, we should have had a pee funnel handy from Pee Funnel camp, strapped it on, aimed the tube at a bucket, and immersed his hand in warm water. Then we could dragged him to the street and poured his wee-wee back over his head.

...Ahhh, hindsight.

Great post. Yeah, I think a lot of burners found themselves pushed to their limits this burn which is not always a bad thing. Good for you, too, in showing restraint with the SOB.

While you're left with a funny story and a stinky carpet, that guy, inevitably, will piss on the wrong dome floor some day and won't find himself so lucky.
Irony. You're soaking in it.

How big is your dome? HOLY SHIT that sounds painful!!!!!! yowza!

haha, all jokes aside, we had a few similar experiences this year. Then again, we do run a bar, so I 'spose that comes with the territory. We had people piss behind the bar, but had someone pissed on my dome carpet, I would have forsurely rubbed his nose in it.

How big is your dome?


Our dome is only 22' in diameter! I saw the spot on the carpet, which was only two steps away from the camp chair we left him in.

Other details worth noting:

Though the guy was really out of it, he managed to zip the tent closed behind him. He also removed his glasses and neatly folded them on the bin next to the Naugasnake's air mattress.

How, after sleeping off his stupor for a few hours, he lacked the common courtesy or the motor skills to at least step OUT of the dome to relieve himself, is beyond me.

I bow to your compassion and restraint.

If I had found a drunkard on my cot, he would have found himself ducttaped and inverted from the APOK gaurd tower (with the Good Kernul's permission of course) and potentially used as a pinata during a round of Major Mallot's Fickle Finger of Fate game.

Forget the sharpie unibrow, write "YAHOO" on the forehead in thick letters. This provides a service to your fellow citizens by warning them.

Last year, the second in command at M*A*S*H 4207th woke up to find a brand new doorway cut into his GP small (not a cheap tent) and a drunken asshat asleep in one of his chairs. He less than gently woke the fellow up and got $600 out of him for the cost of a new tent.

The sharpie idea is a good one. I'm surprised that didnt come to mind. I think at this point, I am very likely to handle drunkkards with a sharpie! I have the urge to be cruel, but perhaps writing "asshole" all over this guys body would not only teach him a less, but I would feel so much better! So, in the future, along with the other supplies I carry to burning man, a sharpie, and a camera will be on hand at all times.

A difficult quandary indeed.

Were it me I believe I'd have first tried to chant him out. By concentrating on the heart chakra the chant resonates with love and compassion and the recipient - regardless of mental or altered state - responds accordingly.

Once consciousness returns to the stranger who holds space in your tent you can then encourage him by borrowing Simon of the Playa's 950k Volt taser and planting it somewhere near your guest's choad. A 3 second discharge should get the point across. Anything longer runs the risks of incapacitating the ass monkey and you lose any further entertainment value from his suffering.

Remember, like the Buddha said it's ALL about the suffering.

good gawd, who DOESNT run a bar at Burning Man, that's the question of the year it seems...too many folks attend now that cant handle their buzz...or the freedom of playa life...once again, when the yahoo's thin out, I''ll be back...so bring on more dust storms! I think that might do the trick, YES!

Wow! That's a pretty ugly story. I am glad it didn't harsh your burn too much! We were pretty lucky at our camp. We didn't get anyone like that. It was probably because we had a big orange castle with a portcullis that was down when we were just chilling and not open.

We did get a fair amount of drunkards wanting in (especially during when the dust was blowing) but the portcullis only allowed them to pathetically beg for entry. Amusing for us and since the rest of the camp was closed with walls, cars and a trash fence entry was challenging for those types.

People who cannot maintain that sort of control really should not imbibe so damn much. I got as drunk as a freaking skunk and one night was tripping balls something fierce. Never did I intrude into a different camp and I always made it back home. Well perhaps 25 years of practice has paid off!

Your patience is to be admired. I would have had my buddies help me toss the guy in front of an art car.

Well not really, but he would have been tossed out front onto the dust at the very least.

I scoffed at the idea of making the portcullis. Looks like it really helped us out!

The portcullis is to my left. It's the black lattice thingy. The orange loop of stuff is EL Wire that we never got around to actually use!

We found someone sleeping on our outdoor bed, left him there and a while later he was gone. No problem, as a matter of fact I am glad someone who needed a rest found one.

I don't know anything about the person who was passed out at the beginning of this thread but is it possible that he is a really nice, good soul, who had a little too much fun at Burning Man and needed a place to recover. Perhaps he thought the tent he had entered was his own, and as habits are hard to break he even removed and folded his glasses. My son watched some drunk girl exit a portta-potti and stumble over to a bike that she thought was hers. Problem was she wasn't thinking clearly. Makes the art blurry.

I try and give other burners the benefit of the doubt.

In the default world it's different.

We were lucky this year. We had a 40' carpeted dome bar lounge with around 75 large and very, very comfy pillows, and we didn't have any pee incidents. Heck, with the fluorescent lights on all the time, we didn't even have anything that showed up on the pillows!

However, we expected to close at around 3:00am daily. Much to our surprise and amusement, we became a hotel every night! Our guests were well-mannered all week until the end, when some decided that by putting the pillows out, we were offering them as "gifts" for the taking.

Next year, RFID tags, spotlights, and loudspeakers at the entrance!

And Sharpies, superglue, and rubber chickens for anyone who decides to pee inside...
