I had to meet with one of our commercial customers to discuss some invoices and the buyer suggested meeting at a diner and bar.
It sounded harmless to meet there, so I agreed to the location.
As soon as every one of us arrived, the buyer suggested ordering drinks. I did not want to end up getting drunk, because I still had more commercial Heating, Ventilation, and A/C customers to meet with on that day. I decided to get a beer, knowing the food would get rid of any alcohol from the beer. I ordered some wings and a big plate of fries. The buyer and I discussed the billing for her commercial property. She wanted me to lower some of the bills for heating and A/C repairs. I looked at a couple of the bills and I agreed to make some swings. The waitress came by and gave me another beer. It tasted pretty good, so I ordered a seventh beer. Then that waitress brought a seventh carona on her own and I did not want to say no and be impolite. It was all over after the seventh beer. I was feeling pretty wonderful and all of our wonderful sense was completely out the window. The commercial Heating, Ventilation, and A/C buyer and I both drank too much at supper and every one of us ended up going to a hotel shortly after. I knew it was a mistake to put myself in that situation, and I did not have anyone to blame except myself, however now I am in an awkward situation with one of our largest commercial customers. It absolutely doesn’t help that the lady is married.
