Once worked at a place that had big plastic garbage buckets full of ice and free beer during Friday company meetings.

Good times.

Yeah, but what happens when it closes down for good?

I grieve every morning I have to go to work. Any liver donors out there?

I work at an electronics production plant, we have cabinets full of alcohol.

Wouldn't advise drinking any of it, though.

Drink to be happy, not to grieve.

Last company I worked for used to allow drinking until some idiot ruined it for the rest of us. I don't blame them for taking it away... if they subsidized my subscription for some dorky news commentary website, I'd have 800 alts ready to roll everyday and never get my work done.

In my day, responsible adults kept a bottle in their desk drawer.  Their bosses didn't say shiat about it, because they had a bottle in their desk drawer.  If you got fired, disciplined or had your bottle confiscated, chances are good that at some point, you were not a responsible adult.

Yes, old.

Two men from the brewery show up at Mrs. O'Brien's house.  They tell her, "Mrs. O'Brien, your husband died at the brewery.  He fell in to a vat of beer and drowned.  "Oh my," replied Mrs. O'Brien, "was it an accident?"

"We don't think so, Mrs. O'Brien," says one of the men.  "He got out twice to go to the bathroom."

/Carson told this joke.  First half on his show and the second half on Letterman the same night.

Were you a detective?
Or chief of police?

I would have so ruined it for you.

/cannot congregate with people who are drinking
//grad school prof gave out beer as prizes during review sessions. Suddenly one of my classmates remembered my predicament and informed the prof. I just said, don't worry, as it's review, I'll just skip.

We have a beer fridge. When it gets low, my soon to be boss fills it back up. I say soon to be boss, because the one above both of us is retiring this year.

And no. We do not drink during 'work hours.' Normal hours is debatable because flex time. One employee was on a 'I start somewhere between 6 and 9pm' when the engineer he normally works with/under was on a working vacation in Europe.

So 5pm is usually the earliest Monday through Thursday. Sometime 4 on Friday. That is if we got a project done earlier than expected on fridays.

Try working on higher education. I live a abroad and my mom has a bad habit of texting with news without regard for the time difference.

It's great to get the text "You grandfather died this morning," in the middle of a two hour class.

/kept it together.
//whiskey and grief later.
///teaching is a great way to learn to hide your emotions.
