No Objection to “No, thank you.”

A few weeks ago, I was at a work-related function.  Someone asked if I wanted a drink. I said “no thanks.”  The person replied “what, do you have a marathon or something tomorrow?”

At the time, I laughed without thinking twice. No, I didn’t have a marathon the next day, I simply didn’t want a drink.

Yesterday, I read this.  Thank you at Brian Cuban and Above the Law.

I’ve written about the need for a Lawyer’s Assistance Program. Part 1 HERE and Part 2 is HERE.

The holiday season is approaching.  Even if it weren’t, let’s remember to accept “no thank you” as a perfectly legitimate answer when a colleague is asked if he or she wants a drink.
