HOW TO KNOW YOUR OFFICE CHRISTMAS PARTY IS GOING TO BE AWFUL
How to Know Your Office Christmas Party is Going to be Awful. You know how office Christmas parties can be pretty rough on the poor employees who are suckered into playing games, singing songs, and doing activities that they really don’t want to do. It’s tough to make an office Christmas party good, no matter how much time Jane from Accounting spends on planning it.
Sometimes, you can know in advance that the party is going to be rough. For your office Christmas party, here are some danger signs to watch out for:
Unless everyone is drinking liberally, you’re going to find that your ears rebel as another tone-deaf coworker takes the stage to belt out “I Will Survive” at the top of their lungs. Either start drinking, or invest in wax earplugs.
SHOWING UP IN UNIFORM
You may be taking a company Christmas picture at the party, but that’s not the only reason your boss will have you showing up to the party in uniform. Be prepared to do some PR stunt like handing out food or spending the day with underprivileged children if you’re told to show up in your dress blues.
STOP PEOPLE FROM SNEAKING OUT
There may be a company mandate stating that you HAVE to stay until a certain time, but keep an eye out for people trying to make good their escape from the party before it has even begun. It’s a sign that people just aren’t in the party mood, and you could end up hanging around with people that desperately want to be ANYWHERE BUT THERE.
TO MUCH ALCOHOL
The safe limit for drinks should be one or two beers or glasses of wine per person. Any more, and you know that things are going to be rough. You’d be amazed by the crazy things people will do when their inhibitions are cut away by booze.
What does your boss think this is? High School?! If there is no alcohol, it’s going to be tough to cut back and relax. You’re going to be standing around with a bunch of other uptight. Stressed employees just waiting to get home to their families. A bit of alcohol makes the party flow.
There’s only a very small chance that your office party games will not be an absolute train wreck. As much fun as party games have the potential to be, there is a very fine line between decent and indecent behavior that many people tend to cross in the heat of a competitive game. Realize that things could get ugly fast if the games are inappropriate.
If someone who doesn’t know you is buying you a gift. You can expect it to be the most generic, potentially useless thing around. Any office party without a very well-coordinated gift exchange is going to be a bit rough.
