Personally, I have a good time, but I know how to handle my booze well.ย 

Watched a manager (married) get handsy with another co-worker (also married) on a dance floor...actually it was watched by many. They werenโ€™t exactly hiding it. Not really a โ€œfunnyโ€ memory. But ya.ย 

Once after an award dinner, the entire sales team, probably 60-70 people, rained down on a local bar that was just getting ready to close. One guy (bartender) left. He reluctantly decides to stay. We drank and partied for the next 4-5 hours. He made an obscene amount of drinks and was nothing short of amazing. Our SVP gave him a $5k tip at the end of the night, on top of the other tips from everyone else. Iโ€™d be surprised if he walked away with less than $10k that night in tips.ย

I worked at a place where the top rep's dad was college roommates with our sales manager.

Everyone knew the sales manager was writing contracts from his old contacts when he was a foot soldier and putting them in the dude's name.

The dude would come in everyday for 2 hours, make 20 cold calls and go play golf.

He hit quota at 125%+ month over month.

Our team all got hammered at a Christmas party and someone called him out about it while handing out end of year awards.

"Not all of us can be (NAME REDACTED) and have our dad's friends sell our software for us, but for those that actually do their own work, this is for you!"

It was eventful.

My buddy got stabbed in the thigh at a late-night diner in Boston. Not much more to the story than it was a total buzz kill and I didn't get to finish my 3am breakie burrito. Edit: the stabby bit was a fork.

Stabbed by a fork will definitely kill the vibe.
