Don't you just love those parties where you have to mingle with people you don't know or care to know? Am I just being a scrooge? :shrug:

2. I love going to mine and so does my guy
Of course, maybe it's because I get to plan it.

We all go to the Mohegan Sun Casino- Have a very spiffy dinner- give out bonuses- exchange bottles of wine and liqueur- go gamble away the bonuses- and then stay over night in the Casino Hotel. !

Yes- I have the coolest boss ever.

18. Unfortunately no !
But if that changes I'll let you know. It's a small place, my boss is the owner. I made a decision to never work for a big corporation ever again. It was a good decision, actually a great decision. Maybe I could get paid more somewhere else, but the compromise is totally worth it.

6. Exactly what we will do! I am pissed at them anyway!
His work check bounced. WTF? They didn't put enough money in the payroll account! Luckily we were okay moneywise but others at his work wouldn't have been! People count on their damn money they earn! I am so pissed that they let that happen. So I really am not looking forward to going because I might go off!!

5. I like parties where I don't know people.
You never know who you'll meet, what kind of conversations you'll end up having. I met a good friend of mine at a similar type of party.

7. I am just not that kind of person! I wish I were. I sometimes come
across as snobby because I can be stand-off-ish! One of my downfalls.

9. My advice is get REALLY drunk.
Hell--it isn't YOUR job--get as drunk as you want to and tell his boss to get stuffed! It isn't like you are gonna get fired!

12. Why stop there?

Dance on the tables, rip your clothes off, THEN hit on the Secretary AND the boss! It is the holiday party and nobody will care or ever hold it against you!

15. I don't even like going to my own company party.
For some reason I get shy and quite and let others do the talking.

I feel your pain.
