Etiquette 101—Party Smart
If your workplace is having a Christmas/holiday party, you may want to keep a few things in mind.
After all, there will be people at the party who will have cameras, and you don’t want to see something that you did, and will regret years down the road. Remember whatever happens at the party may end up on You Tube tomorrow.
One thing to keep in mind is the amount of alcohol consumption. According to “the rules of being proper”, you are supposed to limit yourself to only 2, and not at the same time. Don’t keep the extra six-pack or “special” bottle in your car, and sneak out to the parking lot. Wait until you get home. At that point you can make an idiot of yourself all you want.
When it comes to food, do not walk around with multiple hors d’oeuvres, and properly discard napkins and tooth picks and Never Ever Double Dip. A fun, but true fact courtesy of a Seinfeld episode.
Be a social butterfly. Go around and speak to a lot of your coworkers, but remember, do NOT brown nose or suck up to your boss or bosses. Do that during regular business hours.
