Have you ever got caught drinking on the job?

OK, so DJ has his sleeping on the job thread...but what about drinking?!? This was very common back in the day.

Or, maybe you went to lunch with some co-workers and decided to make it a "wet" lunch. Ya know, have a couple because work has been pretty stressfull lately!

Well, a family member was telling me something funny about this topic at cmas.

He works a big german made steel press and always wondered why the key to turn it on looks just like a bottle opener. So he asked his boss one day and was told that's because it is a bottle opener. That back in the day over in Germany they use to drink beer while operating that heavy equipment. So they made the key as a bottle opener.....

Makes sense to me!! Crack one open!!

Kinda makes you want to go out and buy a VW right now doesn't it!!

What if you work in a brewery? When you go on the Coors tour, you can see that it is available.

Weeeell... I have drank on the job but with my boss! Like you said, we would have the occasional lunch meeting which included a drink here and there. Other than that, I have never taken that chance of my boss NOT knowing.

My last day on the line at gm I was so gassed I oculd barely stand, my boss came over and I ended up having a beer with him. He's only 24 years old and there was only 15 minutes left in the shift. Other than that, i've never been "caught"

That will get you sent home pronto. You do not have a drink while "on the clock" even if you are at lunch and even if those around you do. We are a professional organization and decorum will be maintained. You cannot even have one of those NA beers. You do not report for work if you smell of alcohol. This is a policy I strictly enforce.
