Office PartyYes, it’s that time of year again – when we all go out on the lash with our colleagues. Good wholesome fun, or a recipe for disaster? A time to bond with our valued co-workers, or a chance to tell your boss exactly what you think and make an inappropriate proposition to Dorothy from Accounts?

Well, here’s a handy list of tips on how to survive the office party.

Although mostly common sense, it’s worth keeping them in mind before you break out the Old Spice or your GHD hair straighteners. They include:

  • not getting too ‘affectionate’
  • drinking sensibly
  • remain your usual professional self
  • remember you’ll be working with everyone again in the New Year.

Read the list here over on Dumb Little Man.

Or, you can throw caution to the wind, dress up like the 118 blokes and dance on a table. S’up to you.

Let’s see, it’s that time of year, be careful about following your dick out of a job and ah, gee, be nice to your boss. Or not. S’up to you.
Alright mate, way to be obvious.

As a bartender in The City I see a fair amount of christmas party awfulness… and the fact is most of it obviously just gets washed down the drain, except when someone obviously tells off their boss or cheats and gets caught. Barring those two things, most of it’s just bar drama, and most people know it’s just that and are fairly understanding.
