Enjoy The Party, Just So Long As You Don’t, Well, Um, Enjoy Yourself
The humble work bash is now a bigger menace to world peace than Iran’s President Ahmedinejad, if this year’s crop of killjoy missives is anything to go by. A press release from officebroker.com is particularly bearish about the knees-up, warning: “Too much alcohol and merriment can affect perceptions and have a negative impact on your career.”
The property company goes on to warn against flirting, talking about work, gossiping about colleagues, wearing attractive clothes, spending too much money, staying late and even asking colleagues about their families. Which does not leave very much. You can be fairly sure Barfly will not be accepting an invitation to officebroker.com festive shindig.
