Monday Manners: Rule #15

Rule #15: Guidelines for Drinking on the Job

Don't drink if there is a no tolerance policy
Do drink if you've whipped up an original on the spot and need to take a sample
Don't drink if some dude just wants to impress the bar crowd by buying you one
Do drink if some dude wants to buy the entire bar crowd a round, you included
Don't drink if it will impair you from doing your job well
Do drink if it has been a bitch of a night and a shot will get you through it the rest of it
Don't drink if you are closing the bar alone
Do drink if your boss permits you accepting the offer from customers. You can always bill for it then and drink it later
Don't drink if it will make your customers wonder why you're having a better time than they are
Do drink if your boss thinks it's good for business
Don't drink if you can't hold your liquor
Do drink to be familiar with what you sell
Most importantly, never do anything you don't want to do!


  1. Good rules Jordan. Defo don't drink if you can't hold your liquor, I've seen that one go wrong plenty of times!

  2. One night the entire staff got WILD off of Bookers. I wasn't their but heard all the details and let me just tell you that it was a crazy night.
