Superficial definition of Wine flu :
It is basically used in a sarcastic manner to tease someone who comes to office with the hangover of the previous day’s high alcohol consumption level. If you consume less alcohol, then there will be no hangover in the office.
However, imagine your life with the previous day’s hangover in today’s office! You try to work hard and you feel sleepy at the same time.
Okay, now let’s go through some weird movements that you can do while having wine flu at office !

Suppose, you have a conference or meeting with your clients and boss on Monday and during Sunday you had great times with your favorite extra shots of vodkas. Your yesterday’s hangover is not supporting you to be attentive towards the conference. And, finally, you skip the most important points and getting scolded by your boss in the office.

You find extra beauty in anything, and when you lose control then you start flirting with your female colleagues too! They feel awkward about your behavior of hangover!
Now, you think how you will show your face on Tuesday, at office!
3. The black tea looks like whiskey:
As you drink lots of pegs on your weekends, and the very next day, when you get the morning cup of black tea at the office, then you compare it with yesterday’s whiskey pegs. And you back to the weekends again in your mind.
See, how your whiskey pegs can help you to relate the office liquors and you end up thinking that for at least 45 minutes and it pushes you back with time while formatting a spreadsheet in MS Excel!

5. Use of Excessive mouth freshener :
You also try to conceal the unpleasant odor of your mouth with the help of a mouth freshener. To smell fresh, you try to afford all the possible things, but somehow end up giving the bad breath from your mouth to other colleagues. And, the next day those colleagues stop coming to your desk for any favor!
Now, it will be your solid decision , whether you want to choose the correct mouth freshener or you want to consume less alcohol.
6. Putting hands on mouth while talking :
When you reach office with last day’s hangover, you need to remain cautious of the smell, that comes out from your mouth. Even, sometimes you pretend like you are having a cramp in your teeth, so you can carry a handkerchief on your face!
If you can not think of giving the unpleasant odor to anyone else at the office, then at least try not to intake much alcohol to give punishment to your liver function!
Always remember, little bit of everything is good, but excessive of everything is bad! Save yourself from extra shots of Vodkas!
7. Sleep will occupy more time :
When you enter the office under the influence of yesterday’s chill environment, you feel the same airy atmosphere at the office. Most of the time, you feel more sleepy!
You see all the office files as hills of a mountain ! You are going to feel the same rock and roll environment at office too.
8. Typing errors are a must:
When you feel sleepy, whatever you type, you make most of the mistakes. Somehow, you type five words and backspace it more than six times. A simple email writing will be the toughest job for you to arrange the words in order.
And, imagine the Monday pressure, you will be getting from your boss to complete everything in the given time.
9. Lunch time becomes the complete sleep time :
When you go office with the hangover condition, your lunchtime is occupied by the unwanted sleep of the lazy hangover. You miss the hot gossiping topics with your colleagues.
