    i arrrange our christmas parties and although the (good) wine is flowing we are a VERY tame bunch

    worst thing ive seen is my CFO (and my direct boss) throw a glass of very expensive red on my husband last week – he was mortified, hubby was ok about it, afterall it was my boss and it was an accident, what could he say – we’re boring old farts in my office 🙂

    Haha my partners company xmas party was open bar… at the bowling alley LMAO. All the folks (and their spouses) with the company are pretty chill, but there was definitely a good overall buzz happening.

    Nothing as crazy as his boss ending up at our house happened, but there was definitely some extreme joviality(ahhh liquid courage)!

    Lol!  It sounds like you guys had quite the night!

    The company I work for now is fairly tame; just a lot of middle aged, white guys dancing like crazy and kissing each others’ wives under the mistletoe.  The company I worked for before this, though, was full of young, single guys, so the company parties were always crazy.  I remember one party (not holiday) that ended with two guys from another office crashing a company vehicle into the water feature outside our hotel… after picking up a couple strippers from the local club.  And one year, one of the partners got smashed, jumped into a dry pool, and broke his leg.  The same partner came back the next year and drank so much he passed out, stopped breathing, and had to be rushed to the hospital by an ambulance.  Come to think of it, that guy was always getting drunk and hurting himself at company parties…  Oh yeah, and there’s the time I got drunk and announced to the whole office that I knew the definition for “teabagging” and proceded to explain the term in front of all my co-workers, my co-workers’ spouses, and some of their children.  Embarassed

    I love company Christmas parties, everyone gets a little rowdy and little goofy! In fact I won a wii on Saturday at my husbands party.

    The only funny story I could think of, was a few years ago my company flew us all up to Boston for our company party. Everyone was pretty loaded, and when we got back to the hotel i was walking down the hall w/ a few coworkers and stopped to take off this pettycoat i was wearing and everyone froze cause they thought i was taking off my dress, but all i was doing was taking the itchy thing off. no flashing at all, but it caught everyone off gaurd, lol!

    OMG wow!!! I’m pretty tame now at Christmas parties becaue I learned my lesson early on in my career. 4 years ago at my old job, we had a party with clients and Darling Husband (BF at the time) was one of them. There were probably about 100 people and I got kind of drunk. I was coherent, but definitely drunk. Darling Husband was drunk too and was sort of kissing me, in front of everyone. Not making out, but kissing on the lips, etc. It was right after our first kiss and we used to be so excited about it we would make out in public. Since we were drunk I guess defenses went down and the fact that it was a work event didn’t dawn on us.

    Well I woke up so extremely embarrased and very hung over, no one said anything to me, but I knew everyone had seen it. Literally no one at work talked to me for about a week afterwards. I think they just felt so awkward and didn’t know what to do. It wasn’t even a fun holiday party it was an actual work event so not only was I unprofessional in front of my coworkers, I was unprofessional in the worst way in front of all our clients.

    When I left that job and came to work where I currently work, that was one of the things I was really happy to leave behind me. Of course it looks better now that we’re married, but I was just so embarrased for the remainder of my career at that company. and now of course I vowed to myself to NEVER drink too much at any work event, even a casual happy hour or holiday party.

    Hehe. I worked for a very small company, and one of the gals decided to have a cookie party. One of the two dudes in the office got hammered. They still tease him about it!

    I work in construction…we’re all crazy.  It’s unusual when there isn’t at least one naked person or a flashing going on.  I don’t even know how many times I have seen my boss’s bare ass.  We don’t even need a holiday party to get drunk…we have a fridge stocked with beer, wine and whiskey.  We are an HR nightmare and it’s fabulous.
