I’m quite shocked reading about how much drinking is actually going on in places of business, professions. Well-stocked communal bars at the company where you work?! And worse, wine bottles on desks?! That’s just absurd. Beer taps at the local pharmacy?! I’ve never encountered such a thing.
I’m a Realtor and we don’t do this at the office (except the occasional holiday party). I feel so naive. Is this really standard practice in business now??
