Worst. Title. Ever!

Strange thing last night. About midnight, I'm sitting in my room playing FFXIV, and I hear a knock on my front door. Rarely do I ever get visitors, and even less so at midnight. So I get up, walk into the living room, unlock the door and crack it open. A drunk woman is there and says "Hi, I'm wasted and lost, can you drive me to "x and x" corner."

Turns out she was only about 5 blocks from where she wanted to be if she cut through the woods, but it was pitch black. So I put my shoes on and put her in the back of my vehicle. Drove around, stopped at the corner. She was struggling to open the door (drunk and all) so I told her to hold on, and I hit the door open button from the front. Side door starts to slide open, and she tries squeezing out before it gets fully open. Since it's an auto door on a van, it sees resistance, switches directions, starts to close on her, sees resistance, switches directions, starts to open again. She pops out, then stumbles away. Not sure what direction she ended up stumbling off in, I tried to tell her which way was which but she was gone before I could even pop my head out the window.

Just on the other side of the corner is a bonfire and party, and half the people have stopped and are looking. I assume it's the party she had just come from, but instead of taking the correct road, she walked another block down and ended up on the utility path that runs in front of my house. My house being the only visible thing around the wooded area. As I turned down the road to go back home, there are two cops stopped at the end of the street with lights flashing, blocking the entire street so I have to turn around and get back out the way I came.

Drunk people don't know how to operate automatic doors. (Hell, most sober people can't seem to operate these automatic van doors...)

I'm confused. Were the cops there to stop the party, or to investigate the attempted kidnapping?

No idea, I didn't stick around to find out.

Though seriously, I'd imagine that someone called them to report the noise, and I had heard numerous fire works from that direction earlier in the night. I think locally you are only allowed to launch fire works during the week of the holiday (and, only 4th and new years). Beyond that it's a violation.

He probably got a reach-around during the slow drive down the five blocks to the party.

You're only saying that because she didn't puke all over the backseat.

I put her in the back seat because... I felt she'd feel safer rather than sitting next to me. And if she did happen to get sick, I'd rather not have the front of my vehicle covered in vomit. (Rather not at all, but the back would have been the better of two evils).

The whole thing made me realize I don't know any of my neighbors. She was trying to tell me who's house she was at, by name of the person living there. I had no idea who any of the people she was talking about were. My house sits far away from the others around the area. Five or so blocks over and there are tons of houses, but they are all surrounded by a pretty dense section of trees, and my house sits by itself on the other side of those trees. During the spring/summer I can't see them. During the fall/winter as the trees go bare, I can.

Well, talking with coworkers about the weekend, turns out that the police were responding to a roll over accident that happened on that road (news via sheriff twitter/facebook feeds), and the driver fled on foot from the scene. They are looking for him/her. No danger to the public, etc.

The woman I gave a ride to didn't have any injuries, but I'm wondering if I should contact the sheriffs and let them know. A drunk scared woman shows up at my door at the same time as a rollover accident occurs just blocks away where the driver fled on foot and the responding officers are looking for him/her.

Maybe I'll just ask for an update about it. There was a party going on at the corner, so it's not like drunk people were hard to find in the area at the time...

I left a message with the sheriff, and they requested that I contact the Sgt Wednesday afternoon. Still not sure if it's the same person, dunno if they want to get info from me, or just let me know what had happened. I'm guessing just gonna let me know what had happened, since they didn't care about getting contacted sooner.

Couldn't be that serious if they're saying call back a day or two later. Or you live in Mayberry.

Turns out it was the same person. And a description of my my van was given to the police by witnesses who saw the woman dropped off at the corner after the accident...

They didn't find her until the following day, and the officer I contacted said next time something like that happens that I should contact the police soon after, that it would have been helpful to have the info then. I told him I didn't know about the accident until two days later.

So I guess the question now is should I have stopped at the police instead of turning around. And I guess what would have happened if I had gone down the road from the other direction and ran into the police with the woman in my car. Or stopped and talked to the people who were across the corner at the party and saw me drop her off (the ones that gave the police the description of my van).

But, hindsight and all that I guess. Hopefully she learns her lesson, but I doubt it. I tried to look up any reports with her name and accident to see if anything was public yet about this accident, and I got a handful of hits about things from last year. Including an assault/resisting arrest/obstruction charge.

Eh, there was no way you could have known. You did the right thing by contacting them when you found out, there's nothing else you really should have done.

I still can't believe you opened your door to a drunk woman. One day she's sleeping it off on your couch, the next she's trying to take a bite out of your neck.

That's absurd. Female vampires don't bite necks.
