The man reportedly spent several hours drinking at a local restaurant before he lost a USB flash drive.

For many, drinking after work is a common way to unwind after a busy week.

But a worker in Japan may be treating a lingering hangover after he lost a flash drive after a night out with colleagues.

Because? It contained the personal data of nearly half a million people.

The unidentified man put the flash drive in his bag before a night of drinking in the city of Amagasaki, northwest of Osaka.
