Christmas parties--be careful

The invites are a'comin'. Office Christmas parties.

Note the word "office." This is a business occasion. Remember that.

You cannot count on the bosses being so inebriated they forget your behavior.

--Wear something appropriate, not trashy.

--No one-on-one in the copy room--the story gets out.

--No swearing.

--Two drink maximum.

--Not the time to settle scores or let it all hang out.

--Be gracious to the wives and husbands you may not have met before.

Actually this is prime networking--gab with people from another department, get the lay of the land, but don't complain about your own dept or bosses.

Go out after and have "fun." The party is business.

See? You already forgot.
