Drunk at Work


Some people enjoy a glass or two of wine with dinner.

Others like to have their first screwdriver of the day alongside their breakfast burrito.

There are all kinds of drinkers, from the occasional sipper to the office drunk.

In Louisiana, one city is making life a little easier for those that can’t make it out of the house in the morning without a shot of Maker’s Mark.

Via the Shreveport Times:

A change to Bossier City policy allowing employees to work while under the influence of alcohol has members of the city council and community advocates calling foul. The alteration effectively clears employees to perform all work-related tasks—including driving or operating city vehicles and equipment—after drinking.


The policy change came to light Tuesday when council president Don Williams voiced concern over the mayor’s action near the conclusion of the council meeting.
