And gale force winds with whiteout conditions. Probably will be fine in the city, but bad in the burbs. They need to scare people into staying off the roads. Idiots think that their trucks and SUVs cand handle anything. Remember what happened I. The LIE last winter? [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Went into work today and colleague smelled like a brewery. He often reeks of alcohol. Kind of sad. I like him but it's none of my business, I realize. 17 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

His office is right beside my boss's office. There is no way that she does not notice. He and I work mostly in parallel roles so his drinking does not impact my work. It's just a bad odor and a little disconcerting that someone in my field would show up for work hammered on a regular basis. We are attorneys. [ Reply | More ]

Hmmm me too ... just did an mcle credit on this, the speaker made the point that speaking up CAN make a difference. Grab a coffee sometime and consider saying something. Or put a 12-step brochure in an interoffice envelope and put "from a friend" on it. Or not, but give it some thought before ruling it out. [ Reply | More ]

Interesting. What else did the speaker say? A few years ago I had another colleague who drank heavily on the job. I spoke to our boss about it because he and I worked closely together and I was concerned that his drinking would impact our work. My boss never did anything about it. I feel like it's a management issue and if management knows and does nothing, I just need to ignore it as long as it does not impact my work. In terms of helping him work out his issues, I don't want to meddle in his personal life. [ Reply | More ]

There's a few ways to looks at it. Sure, it definitely is a management issue. It's also a human issue -- you may decide to say something because you are part of the same community and concerned/affected by the conduct (or maybe you decide not due to privacy concerns or other reasons). I could also see the possibility for professional ethics to creep in, if for example you have reason to believe your colleague's conduct is harming a client who is arguably or actually your client as well. If you are a partner, you would also have a financial stake too in the quality of lawyering the clients are getting. [ Reply | More ]
