Apparently my company didn’t ge the memo that I’m going to Miami for the remainder of the week and will be missing the holiday party because they still felt it was neccesary to email the following:
“3. Reminder of Office Holiday Party Etiquette –
Remember that the Office Holiday Party is still a business function. It is wrapped in a social context, but it’s still a business function. Here are some basic rules to survive and thrive at any company-sponsored party.
Do conduct yourself professionally at all times.
Don’t use the office party as an excuse to blow off steam. It’s still a company function, so proper etiquette and decorum matter.
Drink in moderation. Alcohol and business rarely mix well so limit how much you consume”
Doesn’t that defeat the purpose of having a ‘party’? Who wants to go to this borefest. The email went on to say they are locking up the building downtown Boston which is usually 24 hour accesible so that we can’t go back in. What used to happen at these parties?
I was watching mad men the other day and there office party had people puking in buckets while the guys pinned down chicks to check the color of their panties. That’s what I want. I need to get a time machine for the holidays. Or join a tv show.
