My New Job is Turning Me Into A Binge Drinker

So this new job is really sucking the fun right out of me. Forget post-work drinks, I've yet to meet up with my friends before the 10pm hour since starting.

Tonight is it Friday night, 10pm and my client is calling me in a moment to discuss something. Now, I am all for being appreciated by the client, but this is boarding on abuse. They are so damn needy! Don't they realize what time it is on the East Coast?

So now when I finally get out of the office, I am going to meet my friends at the bar, friends who have been drinking for the past 2 hours. I'm going to start playing catch up.

Two shots to catch up.
3-4 beers to take the edge off
1-2 celebratory martinis, cause I finally made it out of the office

Next thing you know... It is morning and I have a hangover. Do you think AA is a business expense??

Haha! At the price of decent drinks, it should be. If only your clients were in town and you could take them to the bar with you... (and conveniently lose them)

AA most definitely should be called a business expense. Particularly for those of us below 14th street, where everyone else seems not to have a regular job, but instead traipses about in leggings and punked out hair, lazing away their days by sipping espresso and reading obscure philosophists. Sigh, okay, so I'm incredibly jealous...

i'm joining the bandwagon that says bring your client to the bar haha! everyone knows that you do better business when you're tipsy. and nothing like a lil drunkeness to promote a good business partner relationship.

I have always said I'm at my best after two beers. Relaxed and funny... In top form. Around drink 4 is starts going downhill.

I think insurance should cover work-related abuse cases. From your psychologist down to AA. NO????
