I woke up this morning after an office party last night with a pounding headache, cotton-mouthed and utterly unable to recall the events of the preceding evening. After a trip to the bathroom, I made my way downstairs, where my wife put some coffee in front of me.
I asked her, "what happened last night. Was it as bad as I think?'
'Even worse,' she said, her voice oozing scorn. 'You made a complete jackass of yourself. You succeeded in antagonizing the entire board of directors, and you insulted the president of the company, right to his face.'
'He's an idiot,' I said. 'Piss on him.'
'You did', came the reply. 'And he fired you.'
'Well, screw him!' I said.
'I did. You're back to work on Monday.'
