A lot of companies are having their holiday parties in the next couple of weeks and 79% of companies plan to serve alcohol.  So if you’re going to one, here’s a list from “Forbes” magazine of five things you shouldn’t do at your office Christmas party …

#1.) Don’t Be Late.  The beginning of an office party is the best time to network with senior executives.  And even though you probably won’t get in TROUBLE for being late, it definitely won’t look good.

#2.) Don’t Be a Wallflower.  A lot of people only talk to the same people they talk to at work every day.  But even a short conversation with your boss or your BOSS’S boss can help your career.

#3.) Don’t Tell Dirty Jokes.  Even if everybody’s having a great time and the atmosphere is relaxed, you’ll probably offend someone.

#4.) Don’t Show Up Your Boss.  If he’s carrying on about something you know more about, keep it to yourself.  And if he tells a joke everyone laughs at, don’t steal his thunder and tell a better one five seconds later.

#5.) Don’t Lose Control.  Getting drunk might not get you FIRED, but it’ll still have a lasting effect on how you’re thought of at work.  And it’ll make you the butt of a lot of jokes.

Do you dare share your Office Christmas Party horror stories with us??? No names, please ;-)
