Good idea: Taking a shower to sober yourself up after a long night of drinking.
Bad idea: Taking your sober up showerat the neighbour lady’s house because you got lost on the way back to your own.
“He was very apologetic,” Superintendent Daniel Shean said.
The man got lost on the way to his house in Katherine on Wednesday night.
He walked into the home and took a shower in an attempt to sober up.
The 34-year-old householder was asleep upstairs.
She woke up, heard the water running and frantically rang the police.
When officers arrived, they found the 42-year-old sitting on the woman’s verandah – dressed again.
He said “sorry” to the police and woman many times after realising his mistake.
The man, who has not been named, ended up spending a few hours in the drunk tank to finish what the shower had started.
I’m sure there’s a good thing he had a shower before jail so he didn’t have to deal with any dropped soap joke in there somewhere, but we’re not the type of people who would say something like that.
