On Saturdays I list several blog posts from the week that I thought were really good. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.
Tonight is my company’s annual holiday party, which should be fun. It’s at a nice banquet center,the entertainment is usually pretty good, and they have this big chocolate fondue fountain. I know the company spends thousands of dollars on it, and it’s a nice gesture. It’s semi-formal, so my wife will be wearing a dress, and I’ll be wearing a suit and tie. They have this every year and always send out an e-mail about a week in advance to the employees with an ‘Etiquette Guide’ explaining the do’s and dont’s of the holiday party. For example, do dress nice but do not dress like you’re going to the club. It didn’t say that word for word, but the same general idea. It’s amazing that people even need to be reminded of how to act at these things, but every year I see people get drunk and make fools of themselves. Does your workplace have a holiday party, and has anyone seen people go a bit overboard and embarrass themselves?
