Weirdest Place You Ever Woke Up.

Post by TheMightyHaines »

I once got tickets to a poker night that had been put on by Chivas Regal. I was working in a cocktail bar, and myself and the other barman went to this thing and got plied with free Scotch all night. Sucked out loud at poker, but hey, you can play cards any time, right?
Woke up the next day somewhere dark and funky smelling. After a few seconds of attempted recollection I realised I was in the dumpster we used to recycle cardboard boxes. (It had been raining. I clearly wanted somewhere soft and dry to lie down.)
Fun fact about waking up in a dumpster: It's not the sleeping/waking cycle that sucks. It's the attempt to lift the lid and climb out with any degree of dignity.
Anybody else got a good waking up story?

I've woken up on the floor on a few occasions, but never a dumpster... not yet anyways.

Sprawled out across a section of dormitory style sinks. Blanket and all.
I find a good cool piece of porcelain is an excellent place to pass out.

Under a car at a field party, though that was more being woken up than coming to on my own accord. Good thing my buds saw my shoes sticking out.

Semi-related is the concept of blacking "in." I remember once going into the bathroom of a dive bar, and somehow, when I came out, it was a douchey nightclub. Time travel!

In a basement on a pile of stale smelling laundry. Then I climbed the stairs to exit the basement and opened the door to find myself in the kitchen of a pleasant yet surprised African American family in the middle of their Sunday morning breakfast. The food smelled really good but I excused myself, stumbled out he door and realized I was 3 houses down from where I lived.
Looking back I'm lucky I didn't get shot.

In a deserted train at the end of the line in Paris once. When I opened my eyes, my hand was holding the "contrôleur" throat. After a few minutes of drunken shame I asked him if I could buy him a drink to redeem. He said no. Later on I was glad I had enough cash on me for a second breakfast pint.

I woke up under the stairs in the lobby of my old apartment building, outside of my friend's apartment (he had never woken up to let me in) a few years after having moved out.

Class, hahahahah!

I once woke up on somebody's hedge. Inexplicably, I had decided that it would be a good resting place. I slept for hours without tumbling to the concrete below.

It was also nice of the owners to not call the police.

Under a bush beside a church. The paramedic that woke me said they were called about a "body" by the church.

I assume I was unresponsive to the good people headed into the church that morning.

Luckily the other paramedic on the call was a distant cousin of my and a fellow sot. He said if I can get up and walk, they wouldn't have to take me to the ER. Saved me a hell of a bill.

Summer/1975, I woke up on the front porch of a farmhouse, @40 miles from my hotel in Atlanta/GA. No ride, with my gig bag locked in a stranger's car, which was at the farm but the driver was gone. I had @1 1/2hrs to extricate my bag, find(?) a ride to my hotel (40 miles away), pack my clothes and make it to the airport (another 15 miles) to catch a flight to Richmond/VA for a Canned Heat gig that night.

Bottom-line: made the gig.

I once woke up in a field in the middle of France (where I was on holliday with my best buddy) with my arm around the waist of a beautiful French girl I had never seen before. I woke up, she woke up, and we had no recollection at all of meeting. Up to now, I believe we were abducted by aliens.

So many choices, hmm hmm..

Let's see there was whole getting myself locked mysteriously in friend's storage, underground.

Then there was waking up from top of hospital's housing place. 7th floor no less. It was also quite windy.

There might be some other pearls around but I am not in the mood to remember.

She tricked you: French women are aliens. The psychopathic kind of.
