    I am really ashamed that I got drunk at an official party and beat one of my colleagues but my boss wants to fire me for this

    I am working in a software company. Recently our boss has invited all the employees to an official party. I somehow got drunk there and beat one of my colleagues. I am really ashamed of what happened that night and have apologized numerous times to our boss. But he is so angry that he wants to fire me. What to do to save my job in such a situation?

    Hello Friend,

    Well, your action speaks for tehmselves. There are some blunders that has no forgiveness. You have violated the professional as well as moral ethics. During the party you should have behaved in a civilized manner but you did not do that. Drinking and beating colleague at a official party is a crime and you have to pay the heavy price. For one last time you should talk to your boss and express your deepest sympathy to your colleague and ask forgiveness. If your boss belives that this action is not sufficient to justify your fault then you have to leave your current job. I feel sorry for you but there is a saying in english "What cannot be cured must be endured". You have to endure this phase.

    Bye,

    Dear,
    Your act is not good. As you are saying that you have apologized for it, then i think that your boss should have forgiven you.
    But as he is not forgiving you, then you should go and apologize to that person whom you have beaten and ask him that he should ask your boss that you should not be fired as whatever you have done was just in the influence of intoxication.
    If that employee favour you then it may protect you from being fired otherwise it will be hard to escape from it....

    Firstly you did a grave mistake by doing a act of physical violence its really shameful and you behaved like an layman and uneducated one you cannot use physical violence at work donít use physical violence to influence your self its not that your drunk. being drunk doesn't mean that you can take that as an excuse to get off the situation like thatÖ its really a serious matter where you can also be booked under law as well in the violation of indulging in beating a co-worker behave yourself this is not you learn from a software company its not that you be always right at your behavior at least avoid physical violence at work I totally condemn it .. Learn to respect others and be under control.. Now that you have committed a grave mistake it comes to deal with the present distress and damage which you have created at official party. Your boss is right in his decision.. you would have got into more trouble if your colleague who has taken the beatings from you had lodged a complaint with local police. Be thankful to victim of your rogue behavior he is your actual savior of life he is the one who could have ruined your life if he had really taken serious stance on you.. Now its upto the victim employee to pardon you for your mistakes anymore ..

    So its time for applying the best efforts now to please your coworker and boss you can also fall on his feet of your coworker only his acceptance of your apology can do something to you please him, your boss and convey your apology to him at what ever cost.. Understand that your are not a degraded person if fall on his feet and mention your repentance for what you have done.. Its importance that you show them the sign of feeling of being so shameful and repent on your actions.. mistakes do happen in life that all commit but never lose your mental balance assure boss that you will never do it again if possible you should take an undertaking letter that he can suspend you for a months time and you would join a rehabilitation center and get rid of drinking and you would join a school of yoga to control your anger .. losing your mental balance when your provoked can also be harmful.. I accept that its not your only fault might be different personal issues with your colleague but you should have the verbal content and the ability to make him mute .. I am sure that you might have been proved in official party .. you should recollect the incident what actually happened at the party take a decision what went wrong with you and behave good even when your provoked in any instance.. the root cause of all the incident and all the mess is that your anger and your slavery to alcohol which did ruin your career.. its important that you have some patience be cool get rid of any weakness in you .. I hope your are given a warning and your colleague accepts your apology Öall the best

    Dear Aspirant,

    In fact you have done a blunder mistake.Having taken alcohol in a official party & beating one colleague is not a simple thing.That is why it is said that persons should either not alcohol or use up to limited amount as advised by experts.

    Now past is past is past.Now you should take resolution in yourself not to repeat it in future.If you want excuse for your mistake,you should go with some of your colleagues to the concerned colleague whom you have beaten,& apologize him in presence of your other colleagues.If he accept your excuse & he comes with you to your boss & say to leave the matter,then your boss may be cool & you may be free from your this problem.

    The above mentioned remedy is the best for you.So you should request your colleague to apologize you.

    Thanks & good luck.
