As for trying to figure out who Rusty was, well, if he was drunk most of the weekend, or at least when you got there, maybe not the best time to play 20 questions and get to know you.
Well, actually, that's a big part of who Rusty is.
That's quite an assumption.
It's not an assumption in the least.
Randy is someone who will get really drunk really early and STAY drunk all weekend long. That tells you something about him.
Not everything, of course--it doesn't tell you whether he's a criminal, or whether he would use those guns in an irresponsible or dangerous way, or whether he's a molester or sexual harasser. It doesn't tell you whether he'd take advantage of a friend or burn the chicken. It might tell you only a little about whether you should be afraid of him.
But it tells you what role alcohol has in his interactions with people, and in his life.
And if you're someone who really doesn't like people to get THAT drunk, or isn't comfortable around people for whom getting drunk is a huge sport, then you aren't going to like Rusty.
And I'd personally be a little afraid of someone who in a new social situation (new people at the very least, even if he'd been to the cabin before) was that willing to get that plastered. Not that I'd think they'd assault me, but that I'd think they were going to create one uncomfortable situation after another.
And you don't have to like him. For any reason you choose.
You shouldn't *slander* him to others, but you can personalyl dislike him or fear him for any reason you want.
People show us who they are. Believe them.
