Ten months ago I went to a farewell party for a colleague. At this party, I downed excessive amounts of tequila. In my drunkenness, I have heard that I behaved atrociously. So, what did I do?...
I told four of my colleagues that I loved them (two of them were male). Then, since I was too drunk to go home with the girls, I had to sleep over at the host's house. At midnight, I got up and threw up on the bed, floor, loo, and my clothes. Ahem.
Now, I don't feel bad at all because I love having a good time and I don't see anything amoral in what I did, really.
But the thing is: I am never this way in my work life. I only let it loose when I am out with very close friends (curse the tequila!). So you see, I now have a huge problem at work. All the guys think I am after them. What can I do, Bubby?
I can easily understand why your reputation has changed since the party. But you can't be condemned for a first transgression. If you want your fellow employees to understand, you should by all means set the situation straight.
First, stay away from liquor - you can't handle it. And if you do have a drink, you can nurse one drink all night and still have a good time. You should - in your own way - apologize for your behavior to save your reputation. And when at work be friendly, but not to the point that the men will get the wrong ideas. It is all up to you. It is your life and you can make of it what you will. I can tell that since this party situation is disturbing you - you are the one to fix it.
