We know.

There's a guy at my office who shows up drunk every other morning. Which is fine, what do I care? He doesn't operate heavy machinery or anything.

The think I think is funny is that he always plays it straight -- in fact, over-straight. This is pretty common. People who are drunk or high and don't want to let on always play over-straight: they try and come off as so together that the artificiality of it is much more obvious than if they were all stumblin' and slurrin'.

Hey, drunk guy at my office: WE KNOW. You can quit pretending.
