Friday Night Drinks Primer – 16 March 2012

What a week! You wrestled with the binding machine. Honestly, you’re too old to learn new machines. You didn’t sleep Wednesday night – what is with that? You certainly didn’t have time to read the paper or watch the news but now you want a beverage with friends and you need to be eloquent about the week that was. What …

The Friday Night Drinks Primer – 24 February 2012

What a week! You were so busy you were working 7am to 11pm but it felt like your opponents were working 5am to 3am. A new person started and had to be trained to be less efficient. Someone wanted you to send a fax and well, who sends faxes these days? You certainly didn’t have time to read the news …

Friday Night Drinks Primer – 17 February 2012

What a week! Intrigue abounded in your workplace and the pumpkin pie barely touched the sides caused by missing lunch on multiple days. You hardly had time to tweet your frustration repeatedly, let alone read the newspaper or watch the news. But now you want to sparkle at drinks like your bubbly. What to do? A solution is at hand. …

The Friday Night Drinks Primer – 10 February 2012

What a week. Someone tried to centralise everything into a shared services model but you know it’s just a long play to decentralise and get more staff later. Someone forgot to refill the paper in the copier and there was a standoff for several hours while the print jobs banked up. You certainly didn’t have time to read the news …

Friday Night Drinks Primer – 3 February 2012

How have you survived? It’s been frenetically busy. Someone backstabbed you with a stapler. Someone resigned. It was all you could do to hold it together emotionally and type like the little typing engine that could. You certainly didn’t have time to read the news but now you want to have a cleansing ale (darnit, you’ve earned one). What to …

Friday Night Drinks Primer – 30 September 2011

What a week. It was tough trying to get decisions from those above you and tough implementing the decisions with those around you. Sometimes simultaneously. You certainly didn’t have time to pick up a grimy broadsheet. But now you want to have a cleansing ale and express strong views. What to do? A solution is at hand. What to read …

The Friday Night Drinks Primer – 23 September 2011

To say you have been busy would be putting it too lightly. You’ve been the poster child for busy. You’ve won awards for busy. You personify busy. You couldn’t possibly do a leisurely browse of the paper or watch the TV news. But now you want to have a drink and not be caught short. What to do? A solution …

The Friday Night Drinks Primer – 16 September 2011

What a week! Some days you were literally running from one meeting to the next (except walking when you went past the glass meeting rooms). You ate meeting room food and it tasted great; that’s how hungry you were. You certainly didn’t have time to browse for news but now you want to seem sage at drinks and you can’t …

The Friday night drinks primer – 9 September 2011

What a week. When they announced your promotion, you were delighted but didn’t suspect the email inbox would be choked within 20 minutes. And not all of them were congratulatory messages. Now you have to go drinking to celebrate but you haven’t had a moment to review the stories of the week, let alone develop things to say about them. …

Friday Night Drinks Primer – 2 September 2011

What a week! When they asked you to double check your figures, you didn’t think they would also ask you to triple check them. And how could one small change require a reprint of the whole document? Crazy busy. There’s no way you could find time to read the paper or watch the news. But now you have to clear …
