You just can't get caught drinking at work. There is a difference.

Company insurance. Too many risks with individuals who have no control.

I used to work for Fiskars Brands, a Finnish company, and the handbook specifically stated that, while drinking AT work was prohibited, drinking at meals and returning to work was acceptable so long as the drinking did not inhibit performance or present a safety issue (the factory floor was a 'not a drop' zone, for instance).

I had the occasional lunch with the IT staff where we had a beer or 2. It was awesome.

I know that the people at the office get upset when I start taking my clothes off there...

Well the guys do at least.

I think its apparent that you are best accustomed to working with only one hand. At work, when you have two hands available, the second hand is simply a nuisance and burden to the first hand. I think you should try using only one hand at work and see how that goes.

Not me. I drink at home and all I want to do is watch TV or play on the computer.

Then again, while I'm at work, all I want to do is go home and drink beer...
