Office Christmas Parties

Explained by Freeranger...

You've heard the stories (and btw, that new anatomically correct Barbie is something else isn't she?) If you were at your annual Office Christmas Party, what might it look like?

Top Comment

My office is mostly women and there's about 80 in my department... so my office christmas party is something I attend but I never drink as it's important to be sober when everyone else is drunk. Especially so as they are all married and some get very drunk and hit on me. So in fact, the party really isn't that much fun, I'm more like everyone's chaperone trying to keep them from embarrassing themselves and ending up in divorce. Although I must say I did get a lot of great kisses last year before I said, no more, time for your taxi rides home ALONE! Gosh it's only a few weeks until the next one (eek)

I don't office and have never attended an office party, but I have a theory that the first office party was plotted by a boss bedeviled with an employee he desperately wished to can but couldn't, and the concept was eagerly adopted by other bosses with problem employees. Brilliant maneuver, imo.

Hmmm.....interesting theory. I've never been to one either, well, with the exception of the ones we used to throw at the shipyard with my fellow burly workers. The worst thing that ever happened is that someone got the last roll. (smirk)

We partied at the shop, but that is completely different than an office party.

Hmm...I've often found that to be true. Not fun, but true.

I agree. I haven't consumed alcohol out in public for years, especially on dates or around women in general. The only time is at home or at a friends dinner etc and even then I'll only have a glass of wine. I'm no drinker although I like the taste of wine.

I have found it advisable to drink at home...even that isn't foolproof.

I understand. I grew up in a household where my father was amicable until he drank, and then things would get crazy. That has given me a great fear of alcohol ever since.

It's not all fun, last year there was one girl and towards the end she was really drunk and her husband had arrived to pick her up, so she started hitting on me - as in she was all over me, obviously trying to make him jealous, and I was trying to be polite but at the same time avoid her and i felt really uncomfotable because everyone else was watching what was going on. She told me that they never had **** and she wanted me.. then a month later she was pregnant to him (roll). You can see why I don't drink. I'm getting to old for all this crap lol

There's even a game for it, scan your butt and avoid being seen by sober colleagues
