Had lunch w a prospect at a restaurant. Thought he ordered a vodka tonic so thought when in Rome. He actually got a tonic w juice and I got a 4 finger scotch. Probably looked like a raging alcoholic

When I realized my mistake, I barely drank it but that glass of scotch was like the albatross around my neck for the rest of lunch.I told my business partner who is much older than I this story. Here is his response:I am so laughing out loud from that story. That's actually pretty funny. Just goes to show you how things have changed over the years. On Wall Street, first it was the three martini lunch. In the 50s and 60s, quite commonplace to drink a lot during the day.Then all the coke and Quaaludes in the 70s and 80s during the day. These days, business peeps never drink anymore. Think of the old movies from the 50s and the 60s. The "business executive" would have a drink waiting for him at home, prepared by his wife, waiting for him as soon as he got home. I read a book this summer about the white house staff and one of the things the author asked the staff was what was the biggest change in the white house over the years and they all said so much less alcohol during the day at meetings and stuff. At White house meetings in the 50s and 60s, everybody would drink in their offices and smoke cigarettes too

I had a 9am Saturday meeting with a couple. I partied heavily the night before so I woke up still drunk. Made my way into the office and met with them in one of our smaller offices. It was a bit warm so naturally I was sweating. I felt like I reeked of booze. After the meeting, I walked them out and gathered my stuff. I thought they were long gone because I waited about 10 mins. I laid down on the large conference room table, suited up, and when I turn around, they’re both there by the front door elevator. It’s impossible they didn’t see me. Quite embarrassing. Fast forward a year later, they come by unannounced on a Friday afternoon while some of us were already drinking. They see me walk in with a 12 pack. The last time I saw them, several months ago, several of us got together for lunch and ended up having drinks for several hours. We went back to the office and who do I spot, the same two asking for service work. These instances have been the biggest coincidence I’ve ever encountered. While I’m not gonna say I hardly drink, I will say we hardly drink at the office or during lunch. They’re still clients to this day.
