RECAP and HINT

Tim goes to work and pretends to be drunk. There are some people at his work place who expect him to come in drunk for their own benefit. They all work in the same room at the same time, but they're not co-workers in the strict sense.

HINT: Tim is more or less self-employed, and his job is not the first thing that comes to mind when you think about jobs.

Here's an updated RECAP and s slight BLOOPER:

Tim goes to work and pretends to be drunk. There are some people at his work place who expect him to come in drunk for their own benefit. He interacts with several people - some of which work there and some which don't (this is the BLOOPER) - by informing them about something.
Keep in mind that Tim's job is unusual and that some of the people who do the same thing at the same time are not working. His work is potentially illegal.

Are some of the other people in the business drunk as well? Is drunk driving relevant? Is he trying to attract the attention of law enforcement so that other people can evade the same?
Does he get financial compensation in any way for performing this job?
Does he have an employer?
The other places of business where he possibly performed this job and appeared drunk: are they the same type of business?

Does he get financial compensation in the sense that someone gives him actual money? Does someone give him alcoholic drinks? Or some other tangible item that can be exchanged for money? Does he receive money not at the time he is doing his "job", but at some point later in time? Because of
performing this job, is he likely to receive money later?
