Work Christmas parties

Recommended Posts

They've invited me after all! Two days' notice to arrange a trip to Berlin. I already have plans this weekend. Passive-aggressive sulk mode engaged. :good:


Masterful play by your office. Leave it late so that you likely already have plans, but they've still technically invited you, so you can't be overtly aggrieved about it.

It's all change for Christmas this year as my firm got taken over by a Scottish company. 


We had a meal at Barluga last Friday (average) with colleagues from the Glasgow and Edinburgh offices. Then on 16 December we have the pleasure of getting on a 7.30am train to Aberdeen (4 hours) wearing our party clothes, meal/speeches/drinks in a 5* hotel then the train back at about 6.30pm. They've booked us onto the quiet coach on the way back FFS. :lol: Honestly can't really be bothered anymore but it's free and a Friday off work.

Going to Aberdeen for a Xmas party and not even staying overnight? :lol:


We would've had to pay for that bit and payday is the following Monday so I declared myself OUT. :lol:

As if I hadn't been on here for like 4 months man. :lol: My loafing standards are slipping.

Its pressure though. You get frowned upon when the company puts on an occasion and you make your excuses.


I like the bosses and most of the staff here. They just can't handle their ale.

Mine was last night and I didn't go. You need to get better at not giving a shit.

Had a cracking night last night. Some absolute states out like, police and ambulances all over the shop. At one point a paralytic bloke feel over and nearly brained himself

6feet In front of 3 city wardens. They all just stood leaning against the wall with their arms folded leaving a couple of lasses I was with to get him up and check he was ok. The council might as well save its money
