They say “Work is the curse of the drinking class” but it’s probably more like “Cirrhosis of the liver is the curse of the drinking class” in many cases, if you want to get real.
With so many people working from home, I kind of wonder if the drinking keeps them from having a workplace violence situation. One of my friend got a frying pan upside the head from his sister, years ago. I never saw such a goose egg! He’s OK now, I think. It made him a better billiards player, for some reason.
