    I have this customer who always smells like JD and seems to be perpetually drunk. I don't know if I've ever seen the guy sober.

    Today took the cake though. It's only 11am and he just came in totally drunk off his ass to pick up a set of acoustic strings singing (at the top of his lungs) "Mr Sandman....bring me a...a...a..... A DRINK! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAAAA"

    Luckily I never see him driving here.

    Pretty sad :meh:

    Well, you never know, the guy might have been up all night, maybe in the studio or something. Sometimes alcohol works like speed (at least for some people), and sometimes an alcoholic will keep drinking just to "keep going". Also, the shakes are something a little different from the DT's. You'll definitely know it the first time you get the DT's. At that point, the shakes will be the least of your worries. :D

    I've dealt with PLENTY of people who do a few shots first thing in the morning to get 'em going.

    My statment was serious also, I just enjoy sarcasim. Maybe he works 3rd shift somewhere and it is his evening. And what I was really saying is, Drunk is Drunk no matter what time of day. A drunkard in the "normal hours" of drunkedness is still a drunkerd. Humans have been abusing alcohol for thousands of years. (and other drugs). Just because you put it in a more social setting doesn't make it "OK". It is just more acceptable. ;) Excuse me while I get a beer :)

    Agreed. A drunk is a drunk. :)

    I'm still wondering about the "singing" part though, that sounds like a fun drunk. Maybe. :D

    And the "driving" part - how did he get to the shop, if he didn't drive?

    Man, I used to be a dishwasher. My shift started at 7am so's I could douche out the restaraunt before opening at 9am. The bartender opened up the lounge at 7am and every day there was the line of four or five regulars. Flip me crap for makin' 'em move so's I could mop around the barstools. It's always beer-thirty somewhere!

    "To all my friends!" :hoists beer glass:
     
  16. definitely.

    Yep, sorry about that. Moved. :)

    Drunk by 11 am?

    Nope, just trying to do too much too quick. :D

    And being slightly confused by the multi-tasking thing probably, the alt-tabs and all that. :D:D:D

    Sorry for the confusion. Please ignore that post, it's been moved to the other thread. :) Thanks. :D

    By the way, have any of you used booze for "medicinal" purposes?

    Seriously. Like, when you couldn't get pain killers in time, something like that?

    If so, "how" did you use it? In other words, did you get "really drunk", or did you use "just enough" to mitigate your pain?

    :D
