Yet Another Reason to Like My New Job

In dev team chat room:

Coworker 1: So did London and NY have a vid conf without us?
Coworker 2: I think they went ahead with it
Coworker 3: Yes, we did. There was some kind of a problem with the voice-only dialin number.
Coworker 3: Basically the outcome was that everybody not on the call would have to buy drinks for those of us on the video call.
Coworker 3: At least that's what my notes say.
Executive Director (ED): yes
ED: that was the agreement

Email from ED:

hi [Newbie]--

Welcome to the team! Team tradition is that the newest member buys all the drinks. We may have forgotten to mention that during the interview process.
