Question: Beware of the Office Christmas Party

Full post here

"... And for those of you attending the company Christmas party for the first time, there are a few things you need to know.

1. Spoken words don't always mean what you think they mean. For instance, after a few martinis, the translation for "I love you" is "I'm really drunk."

2. What happens at the Christmas party definitely does not stay at the Christmas party. If you want to be topic No. 1 at the water cooler on Monday, then by all means dirty dance with the V.P. of finance or play "guess what color my bra and panties are" with the outside sales team.

3. Unless you are absolutely 100 percent certain that the gift you received from the owner is a gag gift, don't laugh when you open it at the table" -- Marty Fortier, Coeur d'Alene Press.

Question: What advice would you give a young employee attending his/her first office Christmas party?
