Hey there! I am the OP. A few things I'd like to address: I was only visiting my parents. I do have my own place. I stayed out a little later than I thought I would and they got worried. The bar (in which we were drinking) is in the same parking lot as Safeway. We stepped out to grab some vitamin water and smoke a cigarette.

Time to move out! Think of all the positives, no grounding, no midnight bumps in the night (if you know what I mean) and most importantly no interruptions during happy time. Get a place OP, it will July get better.

Can parents ground a 24 year old kid? Is that a thing?

Isn't drinking in public illegal though? OPs dad coulda just saved his butt from getting arrested. Unless, OP is actually strange enough to say "out drinking" and not be referring to an alcoholic beverage.

Who the hell gets drunk in a Safeway parking lot anymore? Isn't that something old school to do? I know a bunch of people who are underage and they even drink in houses. You're 24 and drinking in a Safeway parking lot. You have other problems then over protective parents my friend.

Number eighty-five: I saw an insurance place called Safeway once. Maybe that's what it is?

Being 24 does not mean that your parents' job is done raising you. As opposed to what most people think, teen age does not end at 19, it varies amongst different individuals, some people turn 30 and they still behave like teenagers. Drinking at a parking lot sounds exactly like the kind of behavior parents teach you not to do. Bottom line, you sound like you still need plenty of parenting and you're lucky you got your dad.

PEOPLE Safeway is a grocery store. In a lot of different states, not just Oregon. And it's "Vons" in Ca, and wherever else there may be a Vons. Same place different name, loser for drinking there!

Yes Safeway is a supermarket, we used to have them in Australia but Woolworths brought them out, now we only have maybe 6-7 in the entire country

Always the over-protective dad...

Obviously some parents just don't get the fact that kids grow up X_X. OMG how embarrassing

I get the feeling op's social circle doesn't include anyone with their own place or enough money for a bar tab. The people who drink in parking lots around here make most of the homeless look high society.

Since when has drinking in a bar been classier than anywhere else? Bars are loud annoying places full of assholes, perverts and idiots. Those who aren't looking to fuck something are looking to start a fight to assert their alpha male status... I really cannot fathom how people who think drinking in bars is a good thing can have any sense of superiority over anyone. Social drinking does not imply getting drunk, and honestly I can't understand what the big deal is. Most normal people care more about the company they're with than the location, and if that's where your night ends up then so be it? I've found myself hanging out with my friends at the end of the night in a car park somewhere plenty of times, we may not have been drinking but I see no difference there.

You're going to the wrong sort of bars. My local pub is just workaday folks relaxing over a drink. Its not a meat market or an mma match, just a neutral spot to socialize with people from the neighborhood without the constraints of social cliques or awkwardness of going alone to an arranged function.

189, There are very few places like that around here. None that I'm aware of anywhere near where I live, sadly all bars these days are shifting toward the "club" atmosphere which attracts all the freaks.

Had the op said "14", I'd still say ydi but his whole social group deserves to be laughed at if they're 24 and drinking in a parking lot. What was the topic of conversation -pokemon?

Talk about over protective parents. Sorry OP, but im guessing you still live with your parents if your dad demands you to come home. Move out so you can live your own life. Then you can drink as many safeway parking lots you want;)

10, in most states "open container" in a public place or on private property (not belonging to/rented by you) will get you arrested...Safeway usually has a 0 tolerance of people drinking in their parking lots...please don't encourage stupidity.
