How did your work Christmas parties go?

Where they as bad as you expect or did you get so drunk you can’t remember?

Got home at 4:30AM from mine. Shtfaced, but everyone was generally well behaved.

Nobody shat themselves as far as I’m aware.

I don’t believe in getting embarrassingly drunk. I just get embarrassingly tipsy.

: )

Hehe, nah mate.

old blokes trying to pretend that they really are ‘with it’ with young chicks

You resemble that remark don’t you Thumper?

I can’t stand workplace xmas parties. Non stop brown nosing by the networking weasels, bad jokes, forced conversation, people who don’t drink often getting embarrassingly drunk, old boilers with a gut full of champers trying to race of the young blokes, old blokes trying to pretend that they really are ‘with it’ with young chicks.

Actually, it’s all good really 😉

Most people got drunk and made fools of themselves…no surprises. At least this year no-one tried to stick their fingers up my arse (I believe the term is to Hopoate someone!)

Yep.

While I think about it, don’t go to Rydges Lakeside for Xmas day. Crap food, too many people, noisy as hell, too expensive, and the service woeful. My comment from last year’s thread: “But if you enjoy shelling out $90 for the privilege of queuing with plate in hand for 70 minutes, go right ahead…”

You are not wrong mate, we went there recently, it took 45 minutes to get drinks! Never again.

My work xmas party was on yesterday, it was good. I had a sore head afterwards.

after working myself into a frenzy and being too excited about it, i felt crappy all day and ended up going home early after 1 drink. plus it was friggin cold out on the lake!!

Good to hear things weren’t too bad. I used to enjoy organising Xmas lunches for a 100 strong division of a government office. In those days, 15 years ago, you could get a three course meal at one of the hotels on Northbourne for $25. I guess prices have gone up a little!!

Our’s was up there with the best, I have to say. You know it’s going to be a big night when there’s an after-party organised.

I’m regretting that karaoke now, though… it didn’t even seem like a good idea at the time, but someone has to get it all started, right?

There was a musical number performed. I’ve worked on and off here for quite a few years and there is ALWAYS some bastard with a guitar. Is this something common in the public service, or just us?

I just got home from mine….not bad at all and much better than last years.

Drinks only after students left and the food was awesome.
