At new college hire training, several ambulances called to hotel due to accidents, alcohol poisoning, would have thought it was their first time on their own

At same training a female learner got hammered and made out with a drunk, homely looking middle aged instructor in front on 100 of her peers. Obviously both were using very poor judgement, but not a good way to start off your professional career

Some more context on my third post... (senior getting DUI on way to airport)

It was their last day on project due to poor performance...

They offered to be DD for dinner, then insisted on buying multiple rounds of expensive shots with corporate card. Lost track of time + valet took forever so we were running very late.

Senior seemed ok, so we let them drive. On the way to the airport they were running stop signs and speeding like crazy. I told them to straighten up multiple times. Of course we got pulled over, everyone missed their flight and senior went to jail.

We never told the partner... 😉

A couple weeks later the Sr pinged me and asked if was OK to run the $500 "dinner" as a group meal to the client code... 😔

A few weeks later they got let go anyway...

I got an email a few months later asking if I minded being a reference.... 😅

Had an Analyst Uber from Dallas to Houston. Cost over 4K. Was SM at the time and was freaking out when I had to tell MD leading the project. Funny enough he just laughed it off. Same Analyst kept his weekly rental for over a month, and it came up to almost 15k. I wonder if he still works for ACN.
