When a wet drunk shows up at a meeting
A drunk showed up at an AA meeting holding a can of beer, and he was told, unequivocally, that he could not come in. He left, but showed up outside a few days later, yelling that even AA wouldn't let him in. A member went out to talk to him and calm him down. The police arrived and our member assured them that the man was, indeed, going into the AA meeting.
A number of people at the meeting started whispering, visibly upset that a "wet" one had disrupted the meeting. Again, the drunk left. Outside the meeting, he had a seizure and collapsed. Paramedics were called.
