@Nona99:  I would ask if she’s ok.  Maybe she’s having a health issue (a stroke?) and not really drunk or stoned??  Sounds weird!  Report back when the staff member finds out, lol.

If I was drunk or stoned, I’d rather call in sick for the day than risk getting caught! Hopefully she’s ok!

If she continues to act this way and insists she’s fine, I’d probably send her home for the day and discuss it with her tomorrow. If she is intoxicated, she probably won’t really be able to have a productive discussion about her behavior anyway.

@Nona99:  I would just be concerned. If she’s generally a reliable and responsible employee, perhaps there is something wrong with her.

Maybe she’s on some heavy cold medication, too? If you’re close with her, I’d suggest just ask her if she’s okay.

@Sunfire:  +1, I was wondering that as well when reading. I got fired and was able to sue a company for that reason. I was having a medical problem, went to work taking my pain meds because I could not call in sick and it was worse than had I just missed work.

@Nona99:  So very interesting!  I hope she’s okay…maybe she forgot to take some meds today?

Hopefully it’s cold meds and not something more serious!

we had a girl that displayed some strange behavior and was typing jibberish to everyone. it was a medical issue with her medication, so i would think that might be the case. i would hate to think anyone would be that stupid to show up to work drunk or high

@Nona99:  My good friend John’s wife was doing the same thing at work one day. Her coworkers were concerned and brought her to the ER. They found an inoperable brain tumor the size of a tennis ball. 


Point being, I’d approach her and point blank as her if she’s feeling alright. If she’s that incoherant, consider calling her emergency contact.

Aside from asking if she were okay, I’d stay out of it unless she were my direct subordinate.  I try to stay as far away as possible from office drama, and if she’s not my responsibility, I wouldn’t want to be involved.
