It's out works christmas do tomorrow. It starts at midday in the office and we are eating in town at 2pm. I am driving and therefore not drinking. Majority of colleagues will be drinking. They get quite load and brash (to a sober me) and act like children - blowing up and firing balloons around the area we are sat in, aswell as chucking fire crackers around the place.

I cannot wait til 5pm when I can get off home!

Is it avoidable? I have dodged mine this year.

We're is it hosted that allows fire crackers to be thrown around?!

YANBU, OP. I'm hoping to get out of ours. At least you finish early. Ours starts 5.

I went in,circled the room, nodded at the bosses, smiled at the colleagues, stacked and grabbed 3 m and s party platters and two bottles of champagne and ran back to Dp in the car.

Came home and stuffed ourselves silly

My colleagues joined me later, they were fine with the fucking over...as it were

We had ours last week. On a school night. Most of us don't like each other much, so it was a bit miserable. fhmm

I think I'll dodge it next year.

I hate being around really drunk people when I'm sober which is pretty much all the time! I agree, avoid if you can or get away early.

I drank enough so it was bearable.
Food was decent.
Met DH and DD and had a chippy tea.
Got called a party pooper but cba with the hassle.
Officially an old lady.
