“I’m not drinking alone.” – Boss, as he leaves me a glass of whisky on my desk.
Last night I explained to my new roommate that most asians are fairly incapable of drinking due to an enzyme linked to esophageal cancer, causing physical symptoms similar to an allergic reaction. Still, the guys here at work attempt to up my tolerance, which has been a losing battle for years now.
Today they proposed this solution. To get me black out drunk every morning. I asked them if this would make me an alcoholic, but they reassured me it was a surefire way to increase my dependency tolerance.
As they are all midwestern men, I will take their opinion as scientific proof.
