In as much as we all try to be responsible adults, there are times when you party like there’s no tomorrow. Unfortunately for you, work is tomorrow. Now, you have to navigate a hangover while being a slave to capitalism. Here’s what to do:

1) Keep drinking

It’s only a hangover if you stop drinking. Turn the alcohol into your water bottle and be taking tiny sips throughout the day.

2) Just don’t go to work

Work is for the living and the hangover kills you, what’ll happen next? Stay in your house, eat some good food and just sleep. If they fire you, they fire you. Life goes on.

3) Close early

You’re battling principalities and powers, why will you stay till the end of the work day?

4) Ignore your coworkers

With all the things worrying you, you can’t add the annoying coworkers into the mix. Just do your work and leave everyone to their devices.
