That is so disgusting and irresponsible.  I’ve lost a friend to a drunk driver and I have no respect for those who drink and drive.  You should definitely dstance yourself from your co-workers’ social activities.

That’s disgusting and very selfish behavior. I lost a friend to a drunk driving accident a year ago, and back in high school I was in a bad wreck because my friend and I were drunk but decided to drive anyway. I went through the windshield and I’m lucky that I walked away from the accident. Some people aren’t as lucky. I HATE when people drive drunk, it’s never worth it! I wouldn’t be able to keep quiet if I heard people laughing about that.

The company I worked at before this one was very much like that. There was a huge social side of working there and I was definitely incredibly uncomfortable with it, and eventually ending leaving over it. I was just sick of people having an entire bottle of wine and driving home almost DAILY! Even worse was they were making me feel like crap for not doing it too. They kept calling me square and would tell me live a little. Um, drinking and driving is living?! Really?!

I’m sorry you have to deal with people like that. I agree that it’s completely disgusting too.

If it makes you feel better, *as I type this* one of my coworkers is talking, right out loud, to our boss about how she is still drunk from last night.

This same coworker got to miss a day last week for getting too drunk over the weekend…but I couldn’t leave an hour early on Friday.

Wow, that’s horrible.  It’s one think to get trashed and laugh about it, but for god’s sake, FIND A SOBER DRIVER OR WALK HOME!  So so so irresponsible.

Umm wow. I am really surprised that some adults think like this. That is just… Wow. They’re insanely lucky they didn’t crash if they were so drunk they don’t even remember driving.

@MrsBeck:  Ugh, your coworkers sound like winners. I’m sorry they put you in such an uncomfortable situation.

Personally, I think drunk driving is so prevalent in the US b/c our DD laws are way too lax. I know that in some European countries, you need to have a BAC of zero to drive. If you are discovered drunk driving, your license gets taken away on the spot. Compared to those laws, the US punishment looks like merely a slap on the wrist. I know plenty of people who have been stopped for drunk driving multiple times and still have their licenses. What the eff?

@badabing88:  I *almost* want to spend one day in your office to see these “winners” in person. From fake-nice-“HI!” girl to drunk-at-work girl, you can’t make up that kind of klass.

@MrsBeck:  What a bunch of fucktards. And since you’re at work, you can’t really say much since it would backfire.

I will never understand why people think it’s some sort of game… it’s not. Some days I wish I could just be a hermit on my own little island and not have to deal with this sort of crap!

@MrsNewDay:  You seriously cannot. I swear everyone here must think that I am or that I’m somehow instigating this crap…but I literally just sit here and observe all day.

My boss was talking to her just a few moments ago and said “do you get what I’m saying?” to which she replied “Honestly? No. I’m still feeling fucked up.”

I worked in a place where this was common too, mainly among the Finance people. I refused to go to any Happy Hour events afterwards. It was weird and uncomfortable. Nevermind I think there were affairs going on between employees anyway. I wanted no part of it.
