CHRISTMAS PARTY
Previous | 12 | Next

Got my Christmas party this Friday.

Can only be better than last year where I constantly discussed the trends of ladies pubic hair and quizzed people on whether or not they thought the "bush" would ever be in fashion!

Any horror stories?:oops:

Ours is next Wednesday, should be good fun as usual. Just a big group of us going out with some cash, early start, a load of ale then a curry, and if the mood takes us a bit more ale... and possibly a strip club or late bar.8)

I'm just hoping I make the last train home.

Yeah, I've done those ones, my ex's company is one of those trendy ones that spends a fortune on it and have it at a fancy venue. It was ok, but like you not really my cup of tea.

This is more of a project team Christmas night out, with a few other people that we like from other parts of the company and one or two from the client which we've hand picked.:)

Always be the 2nd-biggest twat at company events and you'll get with murder :lol:

In 1989, when I first moved South, the company I worked for had a very posh black tie affair at the Hyatt Carlton Towers hotel in Sloane Square. 5 course meal, open bar. After the meal there was a disco and I spent a good while dancing with and chatting up this stunning brunette. My mate was gesticulating wildly from the edge of the dance floor and I though he was just trying to put me off my game. After a while, I needed the loo, so excused myself and was then intercepted by my mate who informed me that the girl I was chatting up was the M.D.'s girlfriend. Although the rumours were that he paid her - he looked like Ned Flanders and she looked like Koo Stark's hotter, younger sister.

Other highlights included a guy in our department borrowing our immediate manager's very expensive camera. He thought it'd be a laugh to take a picture of him having a shit. He ended up dropping it down the toilet.

Works parties suck.

1. When I was an employee, why would I want to socialise with people that I only meet during the day because they pay me to?

2. You can't drink enough to tolerate them, in case you say/do something you shouldn't.

I'm taking the staff to a local eatery during work hours then they can bugger off.

Don't forget for contractors / freelancers 150 quid per employee for the Christmas Do and no questions asked by the tax man.

Ours is Thurs cos they won't pay extra for a Friday, which is hilarious considering the money we make them. On the upside, we have an entire bar to ourselves, a free bar, and tacky arcade games lined up. Its a cheap night so I'm going anyway, but its usually hard work :p

Jeez, is this what's it's like working in an 'office'? Everybody hates each other?

We get on great at work, to the point where I would consider them friends as well as colleagues. A lot of banter and p!ss taking, but then again, that means you can't really say anything you shouldn't.

You sound great to work for Mr Brown :D

No SAIC Do this year as I've left :( they are off to the motorbike museum in Brum, free bar, entertainment and food for 250+ people, after dinner speaker is Jason Potatoe, and contractors got paid to go. I might gatecrash it.

We are just going out as a department into Leamington :( and a naff meal at Warwick Uni.

Making pancake mix on your mums pancake tits

WIBBLE

We've a department dinner in a nice Thai resturaunt tomorrow night but we have an "Annual Ball" rather than a "Christmas Party" and have it in Janruary.

I don't want to go but for various complicated client reasons, I sort of have to. The missus doesn't drink so I'll be ducking out pretty quickly after the dinner - 30 mins of schmooozing and then gone

and from the beginning think what may be the end.

Ours was last week. I decided not to drink so I could drive home and not have a horrendous hangover on Friday. Nice 3 course meal, a chat with a few people I get on with then leave before it gets messy. It's the best way.

If it was a jape a minute it wouldn't be called work. Getting on with people in the office is strictly optional.

I have employed some right bell-ends, who are great at their job and that's why they're there, but I'd rather put my head in a bucket of someone elses warm vomit and inhale sharply than socialise with them.

Ours is tomorrow, but location has not been confirmed. Typical...

Christmas parties can be highly amusing as I believe Delphi pointed out, especially with regards to the camera being dropped in a shitty loo. :lol:

A christmas party when I worked in Next while I was in sixth form was wonderful, if only for the fact a colleague vomited over the cunt of a middle manager. The look on her face was priceless, the laughter that erupted from the people present even more so. :lol:

Stolen Orions on fire off the hard shoulder of the M8. I watched neds litter in the dark near the Tennents shop. All those... moments... will be lost in time, like [coughs] tears... in... rain. Time... to die...

I've usually enjoyed office Christmas parties. Being self employed I don't get one organised for me, but I'm off to Simpsons in Edgbaston for an afternoon with a client next week, so that'll be nice. Michelin-starred cuisine FTW.
