    In Need Of Better High-ring Standards

    | UK | Coworkers, Criminal/Illegal, Family & Kids

    (I’m the room leader and am talking to a coworker. This happens during shift when we are in the room with the children.)

    Me: “Did you have a good weekend, [coworker]?”

    Coworker: “Yeah, I went out drinking with some friends last night. I was wasted!”

    Me: “You were drinking last night?”

    Coworker: “Yeah. I also didn’t feel like I was buzzing enough, so I mixed my alcohol with some [strong painkillers] and THEN I had a good time!”

    Me: *stunned* “…And now you’re in work, responsible for other peoples’ children when there’s a chance you’re not only still drunk but high, too?!”

    Coworker: “I feel fine! You worry too much.”

    (I reported her that day and she was put on report. However, she handed her notice in the next week stating we were “too strict.”)
