The 10 emotional stages of being hungover at work

Shhh. There there.

EVERYONE TOLD YOU not to, but you did the damn thing anyway. You went out on a work night, you did the dog on it, and now you have to drag your sorry carcass into the office.

We’re not saying that working while hungover is impossible. But it sure isn’t easy.

Those fifty alarms set the night before paid off. You’re feeling fine, really. Just tired.

8am: Smugness

9am: Pain

Ah. So that’s where the hangover was. Lying in wait.

10am: Regret

What kind of person goes on a mad one on a work night? Who DOES that?

11am: Paranoia

Does everybody know? Can they smell the Fear? *furiously messages colleague*

1pm: Treatment

Double cheese burger, six chicken nuggets and twisty fries for lunch. They all definitely know about it now.

2.30pm: Renewed vigour

Right. You made it to lunch, you can certainly make it to 5pm. Let’s get to work!

3pm: Listlessness

Your brain is sludge. Your hands aren’t working. You aren’t particularly sure what your job actually is.

4pm: Incredulity

As the wise philosophers JLS once said: “Every minute’s like an hour. Every hour’s like a day.”


And 9am seems like a decade ago at this stage.

5.30pm: Gratitude

Well, you did it.

Now get out of there. Immediately. And never drink again.
