Keeping coworkers off the sauce
Recently, I made a sales call with a fellow account manager, Joe. I was shocked
to find him a little under the influence — slurred words and alcohol on his
breath. The prospect noticed it also.
After the meeting, I asked Joe about drinking on the job. He said, “I only had a
couple during lunch; it relaxes me.”
I have a lot of respect for Joe and his ability, but I know he has a drinking
problem. What do I do? Try to reason with him? Speak with our boss? Just ignore
it? What do readers advise?
