My STDs are Christmas cards. I have decided to invite only coworkers who are on my immediate team and our supervisor. This is about 10 people.
I recently found out that one of my coworkers is leaving soon. I dislike her very much and wouldn’t have invited her at all except it would have seemed odd to invite every other team member and not her. So now I am not going to invite her.
However, her last day of work isn’t until December 21st, the last work day before Christmas. Her resignation is a secret until she announces it at a time of her choosing.
How do I hand my STDs out with her still here and her resignation still a secret? Thank you so much for your help with this tricky situation, Bees!

I would wait until after her last day of work. Even with the weekend/holiday you can still give out the Christmas themed STDs after. You don’t want to stir the pot by excluding her before she’s gone!

Just skip STDs for coworkers and see who is still working there when the actual invitations go out. It would be considered rude to send a STD then not follow it with a formal invitation.

@DaneLady: Agreed! STD’s are meant only for those nearest and dearest to you. For those that you simply cannot get married with out them being there.
I would not send anything to any co-workers, and just invite whomever works there when the time rolls around.

I say mail them too. Remember though, everyone who gets an STD has to get an invitation too. So if any of them are leaving or you have a fall out with any of the remaining 10, you still have to invite them. But not all guests have to receive an STD.
