Working drunk is like the saddest thing ever. Congrats on being totally oblivious to how shitty your life is.
Eh, I think you're projecting your own dissatisfaction with your choices and outcomes. I suspect you're picturing some downtrodden associate drinking alone in their office on a weekend or something if you think it's the "saddest thing ever" to work while buzzed. In reality, I just put down whatever I'm working on, go out with my friends / SO (often on weeknights) and have a good time and resume whatever work (if any) I feel needs to get done at 11pm-1am or whenever I get home.
And I think you're underestimating the extent to which most normal humans think that working at 1am after spending time with friends/girlfriend fucking sucks.
Also, LOL at the notion that, in biglaw when working late, I would ever
have the opportunity to say, "Welp, you guys do you, I'm gonna go out and have a good time with my friends - I'll just finish this up when I get back drunk at 1am." This is fucking absurd. If you're working late, it's for a reason and usually other people are working late too, people who would laugh in your face if you tried to go out while everyone else is heads-down trying to get shit done.
