Anyone interested in Collaborating? How to deal with drunks... Answered

I've been thinking about this as right now the goddamn drunk that came to the door a few hours ago is still rapping on the door, he's a special example because he's caught in this loop, he came asking for someone called steve and wasn't a problem, I sent him on his merry way and he came back in half an hour, oblivious to the fact that we'd had that conversation, he was however agressive this time, he tried to push his way in to the house and got a good smack to the jaw, door closed. He then came back again, in a friendly mood and started the conversation again, I'm now ignoring him - usually they take the hint the first time... Anyway I was wondering if anybody would like to collaborate on an 'ible about dealing with them, see I've had a variety of random interactions with drunks, from where I used to work to random happenings and down and the local, I'd probably be able to persuade my friend who's a barman to add some wisdom, and maybe my mate the security guard who is bored anyway... Anybody interested? If I've missed a life changing and amazing 'ible on such things then it may not be needed but haven't seen one on this subject anyway...

Not enough times to really be of any help :( Y'know, wouldn't it be a shame if the drunk chap was really a time traveller trying to contact your future son about his role in saving the world?

I hate it when they pop up when you're in mourning about some one who was run over by a drunk...

Interesting, he wasn't looking for Dave then?
I might have something to add.

I can probably help. I've done a bit of it professionally. Unfortunately, I had to deal with a super-stupid drunk at a FUNERAL last week!

One of the reason they have wakes, if it was his own...

That's obscene - I'll PM about collab... Things like that make you wonder about humanity...

Cool, I'll PM you when it's set up and we see if anyone else is up for it... I imagine it's going to be confusing... In the last ten minutes he's come back and now appears to be lying in my garden, still breathing sadly... He rapped the door then decided to nest by the hedge, I'd call the police if it was serious but he's not much of a danger and it's not very cold, plus I have plans tomorrow...
