How to Handle a Hangover at Work

January 25, 2018

We’ve all been there before. Whether you were out celebrating a friend’s promotion, or if Happy Hour accidentally lasted till midnight, everyone knows the struggle of working after a night of boozing.  


It’s been a long time since college, and you can’t quite bounce back like you used to – but no worries! We’ll walk you through how to handle that hangover at work.


7:00 – The first alarm hurts a little, but it’s surprisingly not too bad. Hit that snooze button anyways for an extra 10 minutes.


7:10 – Feet on the ground, then straight to the coffee pot. Coffee #1.


8:05 – That first cup of coffee did the trick – feeling great and ready to tackle the day!


8:30 – Can’t remember ever feeling this good at work! High-fives and finger-pistols all around.


9:15 – Ah. K, THIS is the hangover. Coffee #2.


9:33 – On further reflection: probably was driving drunk to work.


10:49 – Sweet fucking Christ, it’s not even 11?


11:38 – Close enough to lunch to sneak off. Time for a micro-nap in the car.


2:20 – FUCK, didn’t set an alarm.


2:22 - fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck


2:45 – Where’s that 20-year-old intern, he’s probably got Adderall.


3:25 – Alright, hitting a second wind! Let’s ride this out and do some actual work.


3:41 – Ok this is trash, I’m going to have to redo all this shit tomorrow. Just keep typing.


4:05 – Coffee #5 or 6. Literally going to die.


4:50 – People are finally leaving. Time to get out.


4:55 – Sounds like some folks are grabbing a drink down the street. Probably should stop by and at least say hi, right?
