I think its something we all do at least once, but hopefully realize it is not the smartest move in the world. Friend of mine did it, went back to his band saw and chopped off his thumb, after 20 years of accident free work

On my 21st I went out on a week night and drank very large amounts at speed with a lot of double whiskey's to finish the night off with.

At the time I worked as a printer and the first job was 10,000 letter heads. A nice simple job planned incase I felt rough. I must have fallen asleep at my machine and when I woke I was printing solid black onto some expensive paper.
My next job was in the Navy on submarines and after a heavy session on new years eve (at sea) the captian had a fire excersise the following day at about 2pm. I remember very little. I never drank at sea again after that, it could have cost lives.

I do hope he was not the one driving himself home, as if you decide he is too drunk to drive a train surely he is too drunk to drive a car, or is it because it isnt on your shift thats ok?

give em a good hidding then sack em.
id never work with a drunk.
ive had jobs where i rely on my mates to watch my back if they had been drunk they carnt do thier job right and become a very dangerous health hazard.
its not big or clever to be drunk at work and if you have then you should be ashamed of yourself.
theres a time and a place for alchol and the work place isnt one of them.

Says a lot about the mentality of someone who feels its ok to drink when at work. Lack of respect for company and themselves.

it would never be forgotten by your employer, and raise questions about company transport, safety, and you as an employee.

Pinman, good call on the taxi, you misunderstood my shift comment, but dont worry about it, you made the right call regards the taxi.

Been there Pinman many years ago,
Driver Brahms and List
I had to close the regulator and operate
the brakes.

Heading for a closed crossing and lights on red.
He shouted "What you done that for",
I said, "The Reds ours this side".

When he died he had been found dead for over a week at
the bottom of his stairs.

Harry.
