Japanese ‘salarymen’ are known for working under great pressure and can’t turn down request from bosses, especially when they ask you to ‘have a drink’ with him. So, they often end up like this: heavy intoxication and public drunkenness.
This is actually kind of sad, their inability to say no to their superiors makes them miserable, it is said that if they want to stand out and get promoted, attending drinking parties and building up an in-house network is much more effective than simply working your heart out at work, this is so wrong, since when the ability to drink with your boss is a standard?
Our promotion should be based on work performance appraisals, not some ridiculous in-house network, sure it is important to have interpersonal skills, and to bond with others may affect our work efficiency, but that doesn’t mean you should kiss your boss’s ass! ( via: daily mail )
