MEN!!!!!! Can I just shoot a few?

I am a protector, one who is in harms way so that might be safe, in this duty I am who I am.
A friend called this morning and started to relate her trials of the last evening. Hearing in her voice an anguish, I asked her to come see me rather than tell me on the phone. She agreed and within minutes was walking up the drive.
Her tale was of one, we from her circle of friends had warned her, was not one she should pin to many hopes on. We told her this one would hurt her and had no reguard for her feelings. Last night he proved himself worthless and without soul, He abandoned her drunk and far from home. Her tears burn my skin yet as if acid for his actions. I would as easily end his exsistance as step on an ant if the times were more tolerant of retrobution in the name of honor.
No matter the circumstance, a friend never leaves a friend no matter the time or hardship it may cause if they are impaired and unable to care for themselves, and yet he did leave. Rat, no snake, no shrew, no worm, yes worm, you little worm, you have angered her friends and I think you would shudder if you knew just who her friends were and what they might do if angered. So to you little worm find a place to hide if you can, one deep under whatever rock you crawled out from under. If you are seen or heard from again the anger may just be unleashed.

Consensus: Is he worthy of the term "Man"?

There is no excuse for leaving a person without safe transportation home. NONE!! Thanks GJ, for helping out.

OMG guys. Thanks but no thanks. It was a wake up call that I needed. Because of all that, I have had to relook at my outlook on life and re-examine myself. This was all due to this person. He is really not all that bad of a person. And I did tell him to fuck off and leave me alone. He only did as I asked of him. Of course it is not a decision that most of us would have taken but it was his. If I had been more honest and just told him there was no way that I could drive myself home or to his house, he would never had left me that way.

Seriously, because of him, I am starting to heal. It's all good really. I owe him a big thanks. I guess if you aren't in my shoes, you can't understand that.

It actually turned her around and we accomplished some very needed work on her past issues. I believe God also intervened and now she has learned some important lessons and let go of some past wounds and made some awesome realizations. All in all it turned out ok. She is a big girl and now she knows what to expect. She is actually not really that mad anymore as she does not hold a grudge.

Jim that is quite gallant of you! Thanks for caring so much! But she can handle it now. It did help her turn a corner! She found herself way stronger then she thought and was in great spirits today. Spent time with her family and went hiking.
Friends are awesome

Glad to hear about your new direction. Just keep going forward. I read a great quote today from a 100 year old woman. She said " When things happen, they just happen. You move on." So simple but so true. People who don't move on are just punishing themselves. Glad you are not doing that.
