So far I have no funny stories about drunk coworkers (yet), but I was at a birthday party for a coworker and wine was served. Everyone acted normal, of course, but it reminded me of a Christmas party I was at last year where alcohol was served.
Boy do some people really know how to put it away.
The last Christmas party I was at that included liquor – one female coworker put away 3 glasses of wine within two hours (and it’s about 4 in the afternoon by the way). And she confessed to only one small glass to a coworker who didn’t go to the party that next morning.
Then, two male coworkers at the same party put away about four or five beers each. Then took home a six pack.
And you know? Parties at work are fun. But I mean, who wants to drink that much at work? I think it’s a dangerous path, because I don’t know about you, but I get very opinionated after a glass of wine and the last thing I want is for my candid opinions to come flying out at work. Very bad idea.
Not to mention the crude comments that happened at my latest wine-included work party. Something about a yoga exercise ball was involved.
Just a note to remember…wine and work parties really don’t mix.
…Kind of like wine and hot dogs.
A little sickening and ultimately headed for disaster.
