Business Practices that have changed over the years

Sheila Anderson wrote a blog "Don't drink and do business". This caused me to think how "business practices" have changed over the last 30 years that I have been in, one type or another.

In my early years it was 3 martini lunches or some kind of alcohol when having a business lunch to now, where its now a big NO NO.

Dress code has waffled back and forth over causul dress Friday or not.

Jokes and business conduct that was funny in the 80's will get you fired and may even land you in court today. What can you add to the list?

Hi Rob, Does this mean that I can't write off my bar tab when "talking real estate" with my friends at girls wine night? Sigh. Yep, lots have changed over the years and technology a biggy. Depending on where you live, caravans and the office atmosphere is changing as well.

Sorry, I am still a little too young to remember any of that.  Alcohol was always off limits, but I could take clients out for golf...still no alcohol on my part.  And, as far as some of the jokes, I always stayed away from that type of humor unless I was in the company of my own colleagues after hours.
