There was a Christmas party at work and everyone was invited.
- We could bring a guest or come alone.
We could bring alcohol and everyone was supposed to bring a dish to the potluck party. I decided to bring my famous garlic ranch wings. I made a hundred of the Wings and had them ready to go. Another one of my coworkers made a pie and a cake and some other folks made side dishes. We had plenty of food at the end of the day. During the Christmas party, everyone talked and laughed and joked around. One of my coworkers invited me to go downstairs to smoke a recreational marijuana joint. At first, I was a little hesitant. I didn’t want to get caught smoking recreational marijuana at work. It was an after hours party, but we were still at the office and I was afraid to get into trouble. My coworker insisted that everything would be fine, so the two of us went downstairs to the area behind the shipping department. We found a place to sit and smoke the joint. I didn’t see any cameras at all, but the next day my boss called me into the office and he wanted to talk about the party. He told me that I was caught on camera down by the loading box and he wanted to know why I was down there. I told my boss that I was feeling sick after the party and I went outside to get some fresh air. He certainly didn’t look like he was buying the story, but he didn’t have any proof otherwise.
