Even though I've heard similar ones of superskilled spirited men on the ground as well
Oh dear; I think my point must have been unclear. The story was not embellished, and neither is it a story about a "superskilled spirited man". It is a cautionary tale that real, 100%, total, alcoholics get very, very good at disguising their condition. Vodka is the weapon of choice, of course, as there is no smell on the breath.

There was a secondary point; he got another job very easily, because few if any effective checks were carried out. This can still happen in 2015, and something needs to be done about that.
