I guess I'm looking for alittle guy back up here..


My buddy shows up last Saturday arounf 9pm I'm out in the shed working on stuff. He comes in We have a couple beer. about 10:30 he says lets go out. I want to but the last weekend I ended up getting lost on my wheeler (with the same guy) and got home late.. You ask so what! well we have a very happy 7 months old that refuses to sleep more then 2-3 hrs in a row a night.. EVERY NIGHT! so I was already in hot water.. Anyway he said lets go I did the right thing I came in asked the wife (why does that sound so bad.. "well I have to go ask 1st") Anyway by some miracle she said yes.. So where off to play Pool..

So we're the pool hall 1.5-2 hrs beer are following pretty good we're have a GOOD time.. boys night out!!
My buddy is a smoker, so he says he has to go for a smoke.. whatever, stupid smokers..
so I get us a couple more beer and go play abit.. 10 min past.. 15min.. I'm thinking WTF.. common ,, I drank my beer I'm going to drink yours now slow a$$.. my buddy is "chatty" when he drinks, in a nice way, just friendly out going. So I think he's out there talking to someone.. So about 20 mins is passed I figure common!!! I better go get him.. I walk to the door and all I see is people stand around and him rolling on the ground in the parking lot with some guy. I take a few seconds to look and and there isn't much rolling mostly him on the ground. So without thinking I fly out the door door into the parking lot and tackle the other guy head on. So now I'm standing over this guy and I say "that's it!" I turn to my buddy who is on the ground obviously messed up and start walking to him when this punked gets up and nails me in the back of the head, I stumble turn around and he nails me right on the cheek, I stumble again and he keeps pounding me. Probably hit me 5-6 times. Someone pulled him off me and then the bunch of them ran off. I ended with a black eye and a few brusies on the back on my head.. My buddy had to go to the Hospital to get checked out..

Anyway beyond the many other things that are wrong with this my wife was mad at me for getting involved!?? It's gotta me a chick thing.. My buddy told me that when I hit the tackled the guy he was actually choking my buddy out.

The real kicker is that My friend has no idea why this happened, he can;t even remember what this guys face looked like. All he remembers is standing outside smoking and going over and talking to a few people outside.

anyway.. big rant.. sorry

I don't think your wife is saying you should have left your friend to get choked to death.

But the guy roughed your friend up pretty good and gave you a shiner. She's thinking that's you that could have been in the ER or choked to death. And with a new baby, that only adds to the worry.

Glad you're doing okay. Hope yor friend gets better.

You did the right thing. What did she want you to do? Watch your buddy get his ass whooped? Its too bad you didn't get out there sooner. Not your fault of course, but you did what anyone would have.

Both as a guy, and a guy with a kid I can see both sides of this story.

Your wife is probably pissed because so much more "could have gone wrong" plus she's at home dealing with a new baby and your out getting into a bar fight.

On the other hand your buddy was getting his face handed to him, you have no idea what caused it so you did what any good friend would do and tried to help him out.

Either way time heals all, both your face and your wife. Good lookin out for your bud, even though I'm sure you felt guilty leaving your wife with the kid, I know I did.

She's reacting out of fear. Give it some time, be contrite and buy her something sweet and thoughtful (though not necessarily expensive), maybe something like offering to take care of the wee one while she goes out with her own friends.

As a wife, I'd be unhappy, too. I'd wonder how it is that you still have friends immature enough to get that messed up at a bar and fight like a frat boy. I'm sure that's part of her anger, too.

Speaking from my own point of view... I have kids and a wife and I choose not to go out with friends that are immature enough to get that tanked at a bar, or get involved in a bar brawl. To me, that just comes with being a dad.

Sure I have "friends" that fit those criteria, but I would never even fathom going out with them to a bar while leaving my wife and kids at home.

That being said, you had to intervene, but I wouldnt go out with friends of this caliber anymore, it isnt flattering as a father or as a husband. Your wife was scared, and rightfully so, and she probably has every right to NOT allow you to go out with "friends" like this anymore. My $.02
