Office Christmas parties aren't that bad...
Well I had my "office" christmas party (i work at a car dealership, in the
shop, not really an office) last weekend. I must say it was boring as
hell. I was at the one last year and it was pretty fun, but this one just
dragged on. And nothing funny happened. Something funny is supposed to
happen. So yeah, pretty lame.
Except that they had 10 prizes, and I won the second best one. A night's accomodation at the Fairmont Chateau Whistler. Worth about $550. :D
Why didn't you do something interesting? lol...If there was alcohol, by the
end of the party I'd be drunk and probably dancing on tables :laughing:
Congrats on the prize though :thumbs:
Eh...mines on Friday. I work for a small buisness, maybe a dozen employees at any given time. These are generally boring, and it's at a restaurant, so no booze for me. My boss will likely try to hook me up this a co-worker that HATES me, which will likely be the highlight of my night because I play along, and for some reason thats funny to me.
Sounds like the Office on NBC (US version)
I was thinking about starting a thread on this yesterday, lol. I had my
Christmas party yesterday night. It was ok, but nothing special. We went to
a Bar/Restaurant in Croydon (South London). The event cost me £22 for
a three course meal without drinks, and I wouldn't have paid more than
£10 ideally, as that was all it was worth in my opinion! The drinks
were expensive too (£3.20 for a pint!), and we didn't drink enough. As
a rule I like to get absolutely rat faced at these events....instead I only
had 3-pints....Of not the best beer in the world, lol. In future I'd prefer
just to go out and get pissed for the works party, lol. I paid more than
everybody else, too, as the Lottery syndicate winnings paid for the
majority of everybody's meals, but I had no part in the winnings as I
havn't been there that long, and as such have only been in the syndicate
for about 2-months. Basically everybody else paid £5.50 for their
meals...I paid £22.00 :ohcrap:
