Aw man. They've decided to sack one of my colleagues for repeatedly being drunk and/or badly hungover at work.
This is the kind of thing I was dreading; this is a guy I frequently get drunk with, and I'm supposed to fire him for being drunk.
I told the administration that I didn't want to be involved, for personal reasons, and that this was between them and him. But he kind of expects me to take his side.
