    Have polls gone the way of the Dodo?

    Well it's time to fix that nonsense. Here's a poll for yas.

    So I have three options tonight.

    First, I can go downtown after work, meet my fiancee at her office happy hour, and drink on her company's dime while awkwardly interfacing with people I don't know from the random guy on the street. I can then figure out how to get back home (no driving after drinking, and no clothes at her place to change into tomorrow, so I can't stay there).

    Second, I can go home and do laundry, play World of Warcraft, watch baseball, and eat something awful for me like pizza for dinner.

    Third, I can go home, maybe do laundry, play World of Warcraft, and get plowed throwing back beer while I play, maybe with some baseball on tv in the background.

    So which is it to be?

    Well your descriptions of your choices seem to imply that you will choose option 3 no matter what we vote. Go with your heart!

    I chose choice three but i don't see how choice one is awkward. If you're drinking, nothing should be awkward. Except walking in a straight line.

    Buy some clothes, stay at her place.

    This is a no-brainer. :eek:

    well option 1 seems to be a good choice you can mingle with people you dont know and you can take a cab home if you find yourself to be to drunk to walk

    Meet the new people. Crash in your clothes, or lack of, then head home in the morning! (or buy new clothes, as suggested)

    More details on option 1: a cab to my place from downtown is $30. I'd still have to figure out how to get to the metro in the morning sans car.

    I can't stay at her place comfortably also because one of her coworkers (female) who lives an hour away is staying with her tonight to avoid the commute late at night, and Aeval's apartment is a studio. Would mean sleeping in my clothes or scaring the poor girl with my nakedness. Especially nasty if my clothes smell like smoke from the bar.

    As far as hitting my place in the morning--her apartment is 10 minutes from my office. My place is 45+ away from my office, in the opposite direction. Going home first would mean heading home at 6am in order to make it back to work on time.

    Just make sure you drink more than $30 worth of alcohol. That way you're still ahead of the game.

    The happy hour's at a bar, which means baseball will likely be on the TVs if there are any.

    Not really an option--this girl is staying with her so she can go to the happy hour. Taking my girl out would leave this chick up a creek and less than pleased with us both.

    Having a girlfriend sleeping over is exactly the time when us men need to step back and appreciate some good beer and computer games.
    Go option 3!

    An incredible fourth option: go to your woman's happy hour and don't drink. Then you can drive to your heart's content afterward. Might even make an impression on her co-workers, unless they are only impressed by drinkers.

    Hey, you knew that was coming.

    :teeth:

    I did, but fortunately for me, her office is all 20-somethings and heavy drinkers. The last time I met her after a company happy hour I spent an hour holding her hair. These are people who line up jager shots on the company dime, so not drinking would make a bizzare impression at best. Especially when the one other time these people met me I was drinking.

    I like the way Madness thinks.

    Why drive when you can drink? (and for free, no less)

    Hah! As they say in Spanish, "ojala".

    Unfortunately, since Aeval works closely with this girl all day, I'm afraid that'd not be a great idea...despite being a great idea. :drink:

    In that case I'd like to change my vote!
