Nice one KD. So true. I've been on plenty of early morning flights -- short ones, too -- where my seatmate will have 2 or 3 bloody marys in him (almost always a him) by the time we land. Can't be good for them personally, to say nothing of how it impacts their business.


Love this post KD. The observation is a good one. I personally think you don't need to drink as long as you can enjoy and appreciate the ritual of connecting with your colleagues (business travel or otherwise) in the local hotel bar or watering hole. One piece of advice that has worked for me in these situations is to challenge a colleague to a game of darts or pool. These are bar games that can be great sources of interaction with colleagues and shift the focus from how many drinks everyone has had.

Drinking has always been a problem. It's my problem too... especially during this kind of business trips. I always find a hard time saying "no".
