Workers at Carlsberg’s HQ in Denmark could drink beer (for free obviously) during work anytime. Until a coupla weeks ago, when the company changed the rules. So the workers are on strike of course. Haha! Now its beer during lunchtime only.
“The warehouse and production workers in Denmark are rebelling against the company’s new alcohol policy, which allows them to drink beer only during lunch hours in the canteen. Previously, they could help themselves to beer throughout the day, from coolers placed around the work sites.”
Thats too bad.
I guess people who drink during worktime have a tough time hiding it. Of course one or two drinks is fine, but more than that, there’s trouble. Firstly, there’s the physical appearance – change in face colour, walking / talking different. And the main killa – the aroma of alcohol. Kinda hard to hide dat one! U dont even have to talk to give away. Just breathe.
Not many jobs allow u to drink during work. Some bars allow their staff to have a few. Some ad agencies too. My old job actually required me to do that sometimes, when i was writing for The Star (WeekEnder). Wine-tastings, booze appreciation, launches, etc. And if these were in d morning/lunchtime, get back to work wasted of course. All legit.
