I suppose you could look at it as Lennier sparing the man's honour by lying, rather than telling him to his face that he's an obnoxious drunk? (which could also have caused a commotion in a public place if the man had taken offence).

He probably inadvertently also saved the man's life, after he went to sit somewhere else and was probably out of range of the explosion.
