I don’t remember how the conversation came up, but someone at work mentioned another co-worker to me, saying they have been told this person ‘really lets loose’ when they drink. A senior exec apparently had commented on their drinking as well.
Of course I went there …. had I ever been that ‘co-worker’ over the course of my career? I would wish the earth to open up and swallow me whole if I thought people at my various jobs had ever commented like that about my drinking.
Just another reason to appreciate sobriety. I now remain the same person that first arrives at an event. Plus, I can leave early before it gets crazy, and drive myself home!
