Holiday parties with coworkers and bosses are sometimes weird, fun, but weird.
This evening was my organization’s annual holiday gathering. Of course the idea is that you’ll relax and enjoy a little downtime with the people you work with, and in some cases consider friends, and mostly that’s what happens. However, a few things stand out:
- The director of HR tending bar makes you feel like you’re being judged on alcohol consumption.
- Being told it’s time to clean up so you can get back to the eating and drinking makes you wonder if the Executive Director in question is off his rocker.
- The Big Boss gets rather animated when he lets his hair down. It’s kind of fun to watch.
- there will be leftovers for a week.
All in all it was a fun evening, but I’m blowing off the party tomorrow for the members, cuz that’s just too crowded. 🙂
