Picture this: it's 5 PM, and the office is buzzing with the promise of cold drinks and warmer camaraderie. But for one bold soul, the invite to happy hour brings a dilemma sharper than the tang of a lemon twist in a gin and tonic. 🍋🍸 They've got a rule: no schmoozing with HR. And when they spilled the beans on this personal policy, the office went from zero to daytime soap opera real quick. Grab your popcorn, because this tale of workplace woe is juicier than the olives in your martini. 🍿📺
