Morning After # 2

There is a half decent reason why I have been making fewer updates to my blog recently and that is due to an unprecedented explosion in my social calender. I have never been so popular, and it hasn't finished yet, this evening is one of the only few empty dates I have in my diary.

Anyway some of you may feel that turning up for work hungover may be unprofessional, especially in my line of work. It can certainly impair judgement, sharpness and even effort in carrying out my duties. It can increase the levels of sickness within a small office causing undue pressure on my colleagues. Basically it's quite understandable that members of the general public will feel aggrieved that this sort of behaviour occurs and that they are not getting the quality of service they desevre.

Fear not!, being hungover and being able to perform my duties competently whilst terribly unwell and hungover is all part of our intensive 9 week residential course at a dedicated Centre of Excellence in Durham. Drinking lots and being hungover the next day whilst attending lectures and mock scenes is just part on the on-going enduring struggle that myself and my colleagues of the future engage in at these top schools of excellence. That is why we are always prepared to react positively when a crime occurs. You don't have to thank me, I do it because I love you all!

It's kind of like "Duress Training" where you put yourself through the toughest tests whilst suffering from every impairment you can imagine!

You at least know how well you can perform under these conditions!

Nice work soldier!

Next time take it up a notch and try it on a carbohydrate overdose after a bender on Baileys Irish Cream and 2 kilos of chocolate! Harsh!

It saddens me to read of so many officers addicted to dangerous poisons such as alchohol.

Junkies like that really shouldn't be allowed in our forces.

Folks aren't necessarily staying on the situation. They are focusing on each other name calling, bad language. Extremely unprofessional. See the link below for more info.
