Gut Rumbles

August 27, 2004


I don't consume 100 bottles of beer in a farking month. But if I drank 100 bottles per day on my employer's tab in Germany, I might get PAID for doing it.

The unnamed former employee agreed that he drank up to 100 bottles of free beer a day with friends while working at the pub.

However, a tribunal awarded him Ä3,000 (£2,000) and three months' salary and said the pub had been his 'dream' job. The man also told the tribunal losing his job had been devastating.

Well, I'm going out on a limb here... but why would ANYONE drink (or give away) 100 bottles of beer every day on a "dream job" and then be devastated when he lost it? Do the terms THEFT and DRUNKENNESS ring a bell?

Evidently not in a German court.


Of course getting fired was devastating. Once he was fired, he had to start paying for his own beer again.

I used to think German beer was pretty good, but if he could drink 100 bottles in a day and still function, he'd have done better to be drinking distilled water.
