Inappropriate behaviour

At work it was decided we should put together a 'Facebook' page each, to get to know each other better. The word is in ' ' s as the company wont allow us to use the site. We were sent a template to fill out with vital data such as:
Favourite book
Favourite band
Favourite quote
Hobbies/ interests
Special skills

So I added a nice photo (see above) and added some data

Hobbies: golf, reading, meeting friends for a drink

Special skills: Fluent in Swedish, know enough Russian and French to order a drink

Now I have just been told to change the page as its 'inappropriate' - photo shows a drink and I mention the word twice.

My new favourite book is Dry by Augusten Burroughs

My new favourite quite is:
"The best executive is one who has sense enough to pick good people to do what he wants them to do, and self-restraint enough to keep from meddling with them while they do it. "
Theodore Roosevelt
My new pet peeve is time wasting.

All are true, but I preferred my old page.

Wow, talk about politically correctness, cannot believe you had to change it. They probably thought you were a gambler as well. Dare you to pepper the next meeting with your boss's boss with reference to drink's such as: long island ice tea. Go on, double dare you! Are you feeling any better?

Good grief. But I like your new quote.

We'll see what I can do. NOt wanting to lose my bonus on something that is at the end of the day just a bit of timewasting, even if it is annoying.
