BAD OFFICE HOLIDAY PARTIES

If you are one of the lucky people to be gainfully employed this holiday season, you may also be fortunate to have an office holiday party to go to.

It's a great time to mix with your co-workers in a social, non-work-related environment. However, that doesn't mean it's going to be a good party.

Here are some signs you're at a bad office holiday party.

It ends too early -- Just as you're starting to have a good time, everyone starts to leave.

You're under pressure -- You feel pressured to suck up to the bosses and make a good impression instead of letting loose and having a good time.

It's at the office -- Unless you work at Disneyland, there is nothing festive about your office. The best you could hope for is seeing someone get drunk and make a photocopy of their butt.

Everyone is talking about work -- When work conversation dominates the party you can pretty much forget about having any fun.

There's no entertainment -- Standing around watching people eat and drink does not qualify as entertaining.

The food is lousy -- You can't be merry without the eating (and drinking) part.
