Don't get drunk with the boss


Sound obvious? Well, what about the office picnic, the hot sun, the beer? Or the Christmas party and the champers?

Parties at work are not social functions—they are tests.

First, if you are invited to the boss’s—respond without fail.

Be punctual.

Dress appropriately.

Do not talk about work when you are there.

Watch the booze.

Don’t sneak out or leave too early. Say good-bye.

Of course, don’t push people in the pool, flash your “top,” vomit, eat all the good snacks, tell dirty jokes, flirt with the boss’s spouse, or just generally do anything that would make you wonder…hmmm, I wonder if I did anything bad.

If you have to wonder—you did.
