Having been unemployed for a day now, I feel like I'm going to need to set up some basic ground rules just in case this lasts for a while.
Unemployment Rule #1: Don't buy booze in handles.
Two nights and half a handle of bourbon into unemployment, I've realized that I can't be trusted with handles of booze. Bottles? Fine. I can keep track of how much I've had to drink based on how much is left in the bottle. Handles? Nope. I just keep going because the level of liquid never seems to change.
As long as I don't have anywhere to be the next day, for the sake of my health, I'm probably going to need several more rules about how much and how often I'm allowed to drink.
