When you think of the newspaper industry, doesn't an impression of a craggy reporter hunched over his typewriter with a cigarette in one hand and a scotch in the other come to mind?
Just me then?
Well, it's kind of a known fact that the newspaper field attracts (or creates) those with a 'thirst' (to put it mildly), and the advertising division has its fair share of heavy drinkers. Before working here I hardly ever used to drink, but now, happy hour is a frequent occurrence in my dept. Frankly, its almost as if we need a tipple every now and again - must be the stress of deadlines.
