Again, understandably, you misunderstood: I don't mind anyones
chemical hobbies -- I can't live without caffeine -- but if they don't
have any other responsibilty than to be a pharmocological mascot,
then...wow. You must have really nice chairs, too!
Then again, I worked at a place where one of the guys seemed to stay
there solely as the bosses' bookie. So...*shrug*

I used to work _for_ a coke addict. He introduced himself to the
whole staff every few weeks. There were a lot of lifers, there, too, and
so these handshakes were sometimes over made-up names and *always*
followed by stupid grins. :7)

We had a waitress who regularly slept behind the bar. Did I say
"slept"? It was more like "passed out," several nights a week. Poor
In St. Paul, there's a fantastic cafe called the Day By Day Cafe on
West 7th Street. Everyone there is in or just out of a program, as
that's pretty much the point of the place. (Get some experience, have
support, drink all the coffee you want, etc.) We had breakfast there
every Saturday with my brothers & friends for years because it was one
of the best breakfasts in town, and because we could routinely occupy a
table for 14 for two hours. (They also let us make out own coffee, which
saved them some work.) Good people.
Is this "some of my best riends are $group"? Nope, just an
observation that people's chemicals don't have that much to do with
peoples' chemistry, if you will.
I should have phrased that post of mine better...maybe a second cup
of coffee would have helped :7)
