We’ve all been there. It’s been a loooooong week and Friday couldn’t come fast enough. And then the boss says computers are being turned off at 4pm and wine and cheese will be making the rounds. Free wine, you say? Why, that’s a hell yes from over here. 🙋🙋🙋
You plan on staying for one or two glasses. But before you know it, it’s one or two… AM… and the glasses have turned into bottles. Bottles and bad choices. Bad, bad choices. At least you think they were bad choices. If only you could 100 percent remember…
You do seem to recall sitting in a corner with your boss feeling super sassy and confident as you filled her in with all the office goss… oh, and sharing your ideas on how the business could really do with a shake-up. Oh, and then there was that glimpse of a memory of you dropping it like it was hot up against the guy on the DF, except the DF was just the office balcony and the “guy” was your new manager.
All weekend you lie curled up on the couch absolutely dreading the Monday morning office walk in. In between the Panadol and Berocca, you start aimlessly scrolling around job sites looking to see if there are any viable prospects. Maybe you could just quit over email and then never have to do the walk of shame? But then again, maybe you weren’t that bad? Maybe everyone was just as drunk as you?
If you could be so lucky.
Below, we take a look at the six signs you’ve probably gone a bit too hard at the office drinks.
Enjoy the silly season! #worthit
