Ok, so this isn't really about Holiday Cheer, but I wanted to make you feel better before you read about what my real subject is...
The Work Christmas Party.
Dear gawd. Why in the world did we EVER invent these things?
Because let's face it... the people you like at work you hang out with outside of work. If you aren't hanging out with them outside of work well... you probably don't actually like them all that much.
So now for some reason around the holidays you have to 'party' with them?
And when did the Christmas party become a high school hook up party? I mean, we might as well be playing spin the bottle. And the debauchery? #drinking #drugs #dryhumping #yikes
But if you don't go... then you are the 'wet blanket.'
Somehow if I don't want to spend four UNPAID hours with people that I am only civil to because it is my job to get along with them and now have to watch them drunkenly tell me how sorry they are for treating me poorly (which they never remember the next day FYI) or watch the melt down as a co-worker finds her husband in the closet with our receptionist.
Um... ya, I am going to pass this year.
Because you know what? I've got plenty of holiday cheer right here at home. And at this 'party' I don't have to pretend to like anyone! #wahoo!!!
