Christmas work do’s are a funny affair. Depending on who you end up sitting beside at dinner, they can either go really well or just be brutally boring. In either case I always looked forward to them – free meal after all.
Then of course, there’s always someone who gets too drunk. I remember one year, one colleague hit the pints way too early and before dinner had even started he was standing on his chair at the dinner table, giving his boss and colleagues a full rendition of “Oh what a feeling…something..something..dancing on the ceiling” by Lionel Richie – air guitar and all.
After some awkward clapping from his bewildered work mates, our drunken friend started to look a bit woozy and vomited all over the dinner table while people were still eating and was later found face down in the toilet. Priceless.
Well, according to BBC online, Christmas parties are becoming a thing of the past, with “fewer than four in 10 office workers definitely having a Christmas party this year”.
Are you attending a Christmas party this year or has the free dinner been scrapped?
