No Wonder She Wanted A Drink

A few years ago, my wife was an EMS worker in our local township. She got home from work one night after a long day and posted a picture of herself holding an unopened beer and saying, “I needed this.” (In the picture, you could tell the beer was still closed.)

A few minutes after she posted her picture, a major storm decided to suddenly roll through. My wife, being the good employee she was, called her supervisor and asked if he needed any help. 

Supervisor: “No! You can’t come in; you posted a picture of yourself drinking alcohol!”

Wife: “The can wasn’t opened; any idiot could see that.”

He wouldn’t relent, but he said something about how it could be construed wrong.

Fast forward a couple of weeks. It had been a stupidly busy day for my wife, and when she finally got home, she ran over to the shelf that we had a bottle of whiskey on and literally tossed me her phone.

Wife: “Quick, take a picture of me ‘drinking’ this!”

The cap was obviously still on the bottle, but she tipped it up like she was drinking it and she posted it online as soon as I gave the phone back.

Her boss called her ten minutes later.

Supervisor: “We need you to come back in; we are short-staffed tonight.”

Wife: “Sorry, boss, I can’t. I’ve been drinking. Check online.”

Supervisor: “I see it. The cap is on! You’re not drinking!”

Wife: “The last time I posted a picture like this, you wouldn’t let me come in because it would set the wrong precedent. I wouldn’t want to do that to you this time.”

You can’t have it both ways.
