One of the most annoying things about work is having to go to functions with people you work with outside of work.
I can at least justify having to spend my time with them during regular work hours as I am being compensated.
However, once it turns into a lets get drinks and dinner, it makes me feel dirty to have to attend because I do not enjoy spending time with them while I’m at work. Why on Earth would I want to take my personal time and use it on them?
The worst part is you can’t get retarded, at least if you could get really fucked up, perhaps the entire thing might be tolerable. However, this is not even an option. If you were to get stupid, it would be a one way ticket to HR land.
Lord, give me strength for this evening. I will desperately need it.
