    Default Getting hammered with ClientCo Manager's Boss....

    ... good move or bad?

    Networking/Bonding or chance to end up without a job the next day?

    Guess I should see today.

    Oh my head hurts.

    He paid for all the drinks, does that mean I am a disguised employee and inside IR35?
    Never has a man been heard to say on his death bed that he wishes he'd spent more time in the office.

    Are you sure you're cut out for getting drunk?

    Depends, could you sit where you wanted and drink you want, or did the boss decide.

    This is very important!

    Could you send EO as a substitute to undertake the drinking for you?

    was there a defined set of deliverables and the method of drinking (sip or straw) left up to you?

    Getting drunk with the boss can be a good move. But him personally paying for all the drinks is definitely a bad move. If he's expensing it though, that would be fine.

    Also, it's possible he may fancy you.
    Hmm. I'm beginning to suspect that you need to find all the packing the computer came in...

    Maybe scrag is a 10 pinter on the MTTWould scale.

    It depends on what type of drunk you are.

    In my case I had drinks with a director, and started expounding on capitalist theory and that the reason he is motivated to work in the finance sector was his motivation to earn money rather than his enjoyment of the job.
    At the time he was defensive, insisting that his job was his passion and the money was not a factor in it.
    The following morning he was after my blood...

    (my immediate client manager had to tell him I was very good at my job, so he shouldn't fire me!)

    Try dealing with it the morning after explaining that you espouse the violent overthrow of the capitalist and managerial classes.

    I never ever get drunk with work.

    5 or 6 pints, make my excuses then head home.
