You most absolutely deserved this. You drank, you stayed out all night. YDI.
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 hangover and so it was my responsibility to do a good job despite that. My coworker however, came in 40 minutes late, leaving me to do everything and acting hungover and didn't accept responsibility for his decisions. Don't be like that. If you know you won't want to work and won't perform as well, then you shouldn't drink on a work night. If you do, suck it up, and do a good job because you have no right to complain :) Point is, whether you were more like me or my coworker, you still deserved it. Just like I did. At least you had fun the night before!
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.
