Drinking at work

Hmmm, following yesterday's post and calling myself a SOT, I don't think that I should be admitting to drinking at work! Only I did have an excuse, there was someones retirement do going on just as I came into work, so I said Goodbye to the leaver, who is so very keen to begin not being at work!

Then I had a few nibbles and a glass of sparkling white wine, and the glass was still on my desk a few hours a later (and no, I hadn't refilled it) I just wasn't drinking it that fast! I have to say that it wasn't particularly nice wine, but I couldn't bring myself to throw it away. I also had my little can of Pepsi that I took ages to open, instead of my other option - lemon iced tea.

I should explain - there is a drinks machine here but a little (not very tasty) cup of tea costs about 30p or I could use the kitchen but then I'd have to pay into the kitchen kitty and as I only work part time I didn't feel that it was fair to pay the same as everyone else just for milk and tea for three nights a week, so I bring my own drinks in and it usually works out quite well!

(I am finding it very difficult to write a post-dated post - I have to imagine myself as writing this tomorrow and having to change everything into past tense - it is quite difficult to do, but good exercise for the brain!)

Nice to have something to break up the usual work day. One of the things I miss from working in an office were the birthday parties and such. We didn't have them when I was doing tech support or customer service. Happy ICLW. :)

Having worked in the Food and Beverage industry for many years, we often got to drink on the job. I had quite a hard time breaking that habit! Kidding!
