Drink-Typing - Bad idea, or very bad idea?

Following on from this thread, I thought I ought to try to find out what people's views are on drink-typing.
I've probably missed out some options, so do let me know other that need to be added.
We'll all have the option to change our vote if a better idea comes along, or if an idea seems better once we sober up.
Do share your embarrassing drink-typing or even drunk-texting stories. Grin

Yeah, I've dug myself into some holes through drink typing.
I never seem to learn from my mistakes either Smiley

Where is Andy when you need to point and laugh...?
Thats precisely why you rarely see me here of an evening - I'm too scared of starring in an episode like this...

Two of my trips to Prague have been due to booking flights whilst under the influence.
Waking up the morning after to find an easyJet.com Order Confirmation in my email inbox is quite an experience.

VPN's/corporate email systems should be protected by a breathaliser type system. I've lost track of the number of times I've told (L)users what I really think of their actions late at night whilst under the influence.
On the other hand, in the rash moments when you send errant missives to the minions, it often occurs to one that it'd be a fabulous idea to CC the boss.
At least you can then claim TOIL (Time Off In Lieu) for the period you were sending nasty drunken emails to folks.

Ive not got that kind of problem, usually I am the boss, and my customers are out with me as well..
I have been told what they think of me sometimes.. and have sent and received emails to and from them.. thankfully they (and I!!) are quite a forgiving bunch!

Many years ago, working in Jobcentre, a typist [BC - before computers] who was worse for wear, typed on a jobcard for a HGV Driver
- must be experienced in raping and shooting..............
it was supposed to be "roping and sheeting" - can't remember how many applied!
