You probably shouldn't have been drinking heavily the night before you were supposed to go in. Even if your boss told you the wrong week, clearly you thought you were supposed to work.

Agreed. If you drink that much before a working day, you better make sure you can handle it. My staff party was the night before my work day and everyone was really drunk, including myself. I stayed up super late, and only had maybe 2 hours sleep. Still, I woke up extra early feeling like shit, made sure to get to work earlier than usual to do extra work assigned to me and another coworker, and made myself perform to my usual standards because I made the conscious decision to wake up with a hang

26 - But she thought she had to come in the first week. Even if she wasn't supposed to she shouldn't have drank if she thought she had work and that it would effect her work.

Well, besides the fact that you shouldn't ha e been drinking the day before you start a job, at least you got a chance to get use to the work environment before you officially start working. Let this be a lesson, OP, but all the best nonetheless

46, it's likely an unpaid internship, which OP would've known about when they applied for/interviewed for/accepted it. What's BS isn't that they aren't getting paid, but, rather, the fact that OP decided to be irresponsible and get so drunk they were hungover on a day they knew they had to be somewhere early.

As everyone else says, YDI for drinking the day before (you thought) your internship started. But aren't internships in general/often unpaid? So you get a week extra of experience and the chance to make a good impression on your boss? Can't quite see why you're complaining.
