You're a powerful business parent and you reek of booze. I'm sure you just had a few business drinks while you were closing the merger and now it's time to celebrate by taking your daughter and her friend "wherever [they] fucking want!" I'm pretty sure that if I'd taken you aside to suggest you take a cab you would have made a scene and gotten me fired.
Honestly. I like my job more than I like your child's future. I don't even like kids. I'm just waiting patiently for them to become adults. It's not my responsibility to make sure they make it there. That's your deal. I don't know them. I won't feel sad if they die. I obviously feel guilty because I'm writing this down. I guess what I'm trying to say is: take a cab or something. Don't put this ball in my court. How bout you just do the right thing so I don't have to.
