Christmas work do's get just a little bit silly

Postby dave-brown » Fri Dec 23, 2016 11:02 am

I banned myself from attending work drinks several years ago when working on Avatar. I didnt lose my job but probably couldnt complain if I had. To avoid this happening again I generally avoid them.
Several years on I thought i was mature enough to handle another. Last night we wrapped up a building site for the year. The owner is an old punk type and my boss is pretty choice, my mates the other chippy so i thought fuck yeah, lets have a few.

4 hours into it, the chippy has boss in a headlock...... boss flips him around and puts him in a police like hold with arm behind his back twisting his fingers for effect. Instead of being subdued, he swings around with a chair aiming for the boss. Narrowly misses his head. Owner screams, i tried to break it up. It was all pretty funny. Then we put on Dragon. Mean

How was yours?

I have no memory of mine, no fallout so must have either behaved myself or did something so egregious that everyone refuses to mention it ever again.

I generally wake up afterward with a sense of dread and regret, regardless of whether I've done anything
'I Like It When You Die' is the fourth album by American grindcore band Anal Cunt. The album was originally titled You're Gay, and the album cover was going to contain a mirror, but this idea was later changed

I've been off work being mental so I didn't go to mine.

Worst thing I ever did at a Xmas do was what I did to my liver when I lived a 1min walk up the road. In my top 3 hangovers for sure. I was at work, on time, the next day. Just not as a functioning human.

I might have done bad things that night too. Fuck knows.

Work events are just working for free. Seize the means of party production.

Turned up, ate a bunch, waited to not win any prizes, took a free taxi home. Worth it for the food.

Did all the interns coke in the bathroom, then licked the sales manager when he wouldn't give me a kiss on the cheek like the other managers had.

Think you win this round Aidan. Luckily Poms generally find obnoxious drunken behaviour somewhat endearing eh

I guess it was OK because I'm still there. I won an award for being pretty awesome last year.

Now i have a payed 4 weeks off. Never had that in my life. Fuck yeah. Maybe il pretend im still a punk and get shitfaced in Footscray park for a month straight

Had ours at a rooftop bar in the city. Most of my crew didn't show because it was a day off, so it was mostly the hospo side of things - which made it like accidentally turning up to a high school party when you're in your twenties.

Wasn't bad. Spent most of it snorting in the loos and drinking cocktails until the tab ran out. No fights, everyone's a bit too fruity for that sort of carry on.

Such a tame affair. Nibbles put on but we had to buy our own drinks. Secret Santa wasn't completely shit. I just be getting old because I got a wheatbag and thought it wasn't a bad thing.
Breakup bbq in the vehicle basement today at midday. Glutard sausage and coleslaw then me, some planners and the interns pissed off to have midday g&ts ...

Oh, and I forgot to add, the actual organisation wide official staff party was on, but I don't know anyone who went. If you go to that your partner has to pay $40. You get 2 drinks, a buffet and a secret Santa pressie which is usually some 'gift' that was declared and handed in- so a Korean sister city letter opener or something. Additionally there will be a "oh we've done well this year, blah blah blah..." type pep talk. Avoid.

Nope, that was my biggest learning of contracting: Contractors don't get shit. Except ripped off of any worker's rights or union representation.
