Because it's 1:30ish in the afternoon and I'm drinking a beer, my employer is buying it, AND I'm getting paid to do it. It's days like this that I'm reminded that I have an awesome job.

Wow, that was evil

You are the kind of guy that would hold the world hostage from your laser equipped moon base, aren't you?

I'm going to guess sales. Take a client out to lunch and the company pays for it, and depending on the field its par for the course to include a few brew dogs.

Maybe I should try sales... I think well on my feet, have a line of sh*t a mile long, and no discernible trade skills of any kind. ... ...Back to my button-mashing spreadsheet laden one-office all-day-long universe of taupe.

Hmmm... drink a beer on company time (and dime) at 1:30 in the afternoon... or race up the Cascade Mountains at 500' above the ground and 500 MPH.

Yeah, I'll take flying over drinking any day. Way cooler.
