Its the most wonderful time of the year, so the song says...moods are generally heightened, people are smiling and laughing and just all around festive. There are more parties than you can handle, but you do your best to be at every one that you can. The one party that you can't miss is your work holiday party.
The office holiday party give you a good opportunity to get a bit closer to that person down the hall whom you discreetly mentally undress every once in a while (meaning only when you see them).
Co-workers let down their guard and indulge in temptations, not just limited to the rich deserts and generous amounts of alcohol. Ladies and Gentlemen...the Office holiday party hookup.
Is it a good idea? one may ask...I say is it a bad idea? Depends how it all goes down. If it is done carefully beyond watchful eyes both leave separately and there is no grinding, or public make outs.
Beware and heed my warning...if it is just a fling you are looking for this is the wrong place. This isn't like a one night stand with a random whom you will never see again. Before you know it, holidays are over and your still tapping dat ass, good luck getting out of this one. Now your branded as the office asshole.
Here is a brief rundown of the characters that play a part in this story.
Interns- Stay away. The idea of interns are so tempting, usually pretty young and impressionable.
many people in power have succome to the lure of the sexy intern...and lost.
Your Boss - If i have to explain this one, you deserve what ever comes to you.
Your subordinate aka the HR nightmare - I don't even know where to begin. This has so many red flags on it you can see it from space. Don't get into a he said she said. No one wins.
The Ho- Easy target. I wonder why? Maybe because she's had sex with everyone from the GM to the janitor. You are stupid drunk, Horny and don't want to put in effort. Take a cab home alone.
The douche - Yeah he's a douche bag. But he is good looking. He'll probably rock your world several times, then get into the graphic details of your encounter at work the following day. There will be no sympathy there. Everyone knew he was a jerk, including you.
It may not be a good idea, but it also may not be a bad one either...the choice is yours.
Just don't get caught in the coat room with the bosses assistant. It can be fun but can also be a CLM (Career Limiting Move). But if you must, just keep it away from prying eyes.....and be safe.
