The Lady Drunk is that [[AlwaysFemale female]] StockCharacter who's an [[TheAlcoholic alcoholic]], older woman (in her 40s to her 60s or so, and sometimes younger if the drinking [[YoungerThanTheyLook takes enough of a toll on her appearance]]) and usually has either a bitter, misanthropic personality or is the all-too-grown-up version of the HardDrinkingPartyGirl. She tends to have a certain amount of class or status, having likely started out as an upper-crust GrandeDame, she tends to drink from a martini glass and may be used as a stock member of a BigScrewedUpFamily. In her day, she was probably [[IWasQuiteALooker quite attractive]] and rather promiscuous.
