When I was an intern (barely 21) my manager made me introduce myself to girls at a bar where everyone was at least 27. I'd be all cute and non-threatening and then my manager would swoop in and try to take them home. Got a 1 rating out of it lol

Made out with another analyst in front of the entire project (including CAL) while near-blackout at a bar in another city. My SM took me out for lunch the next day because she wasn't present and wanted to hear the story, which she found hilarious. The girl's lead was less impressed and sent her home.
