Holiday Office Parties....
This past weekend I attended my girlfriend's Holiday office party, screw being P.C., let's keep it real - it was a Christmas party, with Christmas trees and Christmas songs. It had an open bar, need I say more?
For some reason this year's party is being held at the Assistant Branch Manager's house. Egads man, are you serious!??! You're supposed to keep the worlds in your life separated for your personal well-being. Work stuff stays at work, and home stuff stays at home. The only reasons why I have had co-workers come over to mine, is because we're friends. I don't want to "hang out" at my manager's house. I have no idea why the big meeting room isn't good enough.
There's around 40 of us in the branch, so I'm not quite sure how we are going to fit together in any room at one given time. I'm contemplating calling out, or I should say I have violent allergic reactions to felines, OF COURSE SHE HAS A CAT. I would be more surprised if she didn't have one.
It's a potluck and I opted to bring in some sort of baked goods, I haven't had a chance to visit the bakery at the grocery yet. I can't cook and I won't subject anyone to it. I'm the dependable drinks / chips / cups / utensils / plates / napkins kind of guy, but of course the sign up sheet explicitly said that those will supplied.... Cup-Blockers!
