I spent 2 hours tonight at a mixer with a bunch of contractors. Met too many people with absolutely no understanding of personal space or who were drinking like there’s no tomorrow.

I’m a fairly reserved person in general, but for some reason the thought of getting hammered in a “professional” environment just seems extremely wrong. I get that our professions have fundamentally different work cultures associated with them, but I don’t think that a mixer is productive if you can’t remember anyone/anything about it the next day...
