Once again I'm grateful for a job that doesn't require advice like this:

If you're stuck conversing with a coworker or manager who's had too many drinks, Weintraub recommends walking away as soon as possible before the person gets even more intoxicated. Use your smartphone as an excuse, he suggests. "In a business setting, being careful that we are not associated with people saying or doing inappropriate things is always important in managing one's career."

I can be as drunk and inappropriate as I want in front of my boss at the holiday party because he is probably stoned and handing me Jell-O shots.
