If you wake up hungover, do you usually call in sick for the day? Or do you usually take a aspirin and tough it out?

I've never called in sick.

If you can't deal with the consequences of drinking too much, don't drink.

I wouldn't be thrilled with you as an employee if you're drinking enough to make this a regular question.

Never. I even threw up in the bathroom once. My hangovers go away after I puke though, and that was probably the only time I did that on a work night anyway.

I work for myself so...when I was in the Air Force there was nothing like o2 from the oxygen regulators to help with the hangover.

No. I do not. I'm a professional.



Drinker. We don't get hungover.

One time I was having a party and I had to work the next day but all my roommates wanted to keep parting, so I couldnt sleep. If you can't beat them, join them. So I ended up getting super drunk and by the time I noticed it was 4am and had work at 6am so at this point I was fighting to even stay up. So a few 40s later my boss picked me up cause we car pulled. I just told him I had a bad time sleeping. But I was in the back seat of the car really trying to keep my eyes open and I was still really drunk. But we pulled over o get coffee and even that didn't help. So
At one point I fell asleep holding the hot coffee and apilit it on my dick. That was the worst day in my work life.

I didnt mean regular, we only get 7 days a year. I meant on the rare occasion that it happens. It seems like a lot of people at my company call in sick to use up the allotted days, and not being actually sick
