Take me out to the ballgame...
« on: June 02, 2006, 04:08:11 PM »
Well, my liason with Sprint decided that Sprint should pony up a bit over two grand and take all of the management to Busch Stadium for a Cardinals vs. Astros game with the best seats in the house, free sodas, free hotdogs, brats, & nachoes, and FREE BEER! Now, for those of you who don't know, I hate alcohol. Never could figure out why people liked the taste/smell of the stuff. I don't look down on people who like it, but for personal reasons, I just won't drink it. Everybody else, though... aside from a few people (those working the night shift that night) everybody drank like once the beer stopped flowing, they would be cut off from it forever. All of these professional people that I respected didn't just let their hair down, the let it ALL hang out. 2 people passed out, 1 guy fell down a flight of concrete steps, and they were all acting stone-cold drunk. At first, I thought it was humorous, but after a while, the humor was gone and I was absolutely appaled at these people. It's one thing to do this with close friends & family, but to do this with co-workers and the liason to our multi-million dollar client... completely unprofessional. I could understand some social drinking, but this was an all out race to get sh$t-faced. The bus-ride home, I had to hold one girls head so she wouldn't fall out of her seat after she passed out, and I can't even count on BOTH hands the number of possible sexual assault charges that I SAW... :shock:

Any of you folks ever have something like this happen on a company outing? ???

We're always looking for good people, but I don't know if it'd be worth it to move here for this job. :wink:

I'm hoping I didn't come across as preachy, cause that's not what I'm about. I just believe that a certain level of professionalism must be maintained when you're among the general ppopulace. Our IT manager offered me a flat 2 grand to have a beer. I turned him down, but not because of the money or my personal beliefs. It was because I knew that if I did compromise my standards, it would reflect badly upon me for the rest of my career with this company.

I understand what you mean I am one of the Few Roofing Contractors that isnt a drunk. The main reason is because I have seen so many others make fool out of themselves ,lose lisences, and worse.

just take a toke and pass it around. :shock:  yes many years ago. at Christmas time they would have this big party and even had this wheel that they would spin and if it landed on your # you got a bottle of whiskey. then you had to open it up a pass it around. big wig's would make a## of them self's. they stop doing this after one year a worker & a co-worker with home after the big party and hit a light pole and killed both of them on the spot. :'(. i used to drank beer with the boys but after back sug's-quit can not drank ALCOHOLIC beverages with prescription drugs and i need my med's more then the beer ( i think ) i keep telling my doc's that i was better off when i drank?
they say i'm not that smart for a redneck ( old dixie land old dixie land how i love my dixie land )

Our work get togethers are booze free. I can't remember any of my past employers ever having booze available except for one company I worked for when I was based on the east coast. I went to a gala Xmas eve party for all the company folks, and booze was available. I don't remember anyone getting drunk, though. I was thankful for that, plus the fact no business was discussed at the party. I don't drink a beer a month. A 6 pack would last me a LONG time. I do keep a bottle of whiskey in the frig when I have a nip every few months on a weekend. I take over the counter pain killers and don't think the booze would go good with them. I am limited as to what pain killers I take because of my job, of course.  "Something moved over there in the dark"!  :shock: Rat-tat-tat-tat-tat-tat-tat!  "Oooooooooooops"!  :shock: We had some MPs stationed with us ( for backup and patrol only) that arrived a few months after 9/11. We would hear their .50 MGs and their M60s blasting away at night around the area because of their boredom.  I wondered about some of those guys.  At their next duty station, their outfit received some combat casualties, but none killed.
