If you’ve ever been to a party thrown by the company you work for or if you’ve ever accompanied someone to their company party you’ve seen all the horrible things that can happen which can ruin an employees reputation, cause him to be punished, or even worse; cause him to be fired. Avoid doing any of the things that don’t look good at company parties completely; if you are not sure at what is not acceptable at company outings then keep reading this article as I will talk about 5 things that definitely are no-no’s.
– Drink too much
It’s okay to have one drink, for girls it should be a mixed drink and never something straight up. The reason for this is that you do not want to go in the next to the office with a hang over because you consumed too much alcohol. Also you should know that alcohol impairs your judgment and therefore you might start doing or saying things that you shouldn’t be saying. Have a drink or two but stay at that level and basically enjoy what you’re drinking. Don’t ever drink too fast!
– Cause a fight
If you are not happy about someone being there, someone acting a certain way, someone saying something they shouldn’t be saying, or anything like that, do not start a fight. That would be the worse thing that you can do and it will bring many consequences upon. For example you can both get thrown out of the party, you can get citations if the cops are called, and you can even loose or put your jobs at risk. Stay calm and walk it off; leave if you don’t like something that’s going on and you can’t control yourself.
– Bring someone who’s going to cause a scene
Do not take your loudest most outspoken friend with you to a party for any reason. Make sure that if you’re going to invite someone it’s someone who’s calm, outgoing but not too outspoken, someone who will make you look good, and someone who is not into just finding someone there. If the person you take causes a scene it could get you both in trouble and that’s probably not something you want. From then on your character judgment will not be something that people say that you have because you don’t even have friends who will stay calm at all; they’ll say your friends are crazy, unprofessional, and uncontrollable.
– Hit on a co-workers date
If you see prince charming or beauty with a co-worker don’t you dare try to make a move on them. This is something that is very frowned upon and it will do no one any good. Now if you think that you see your soul mate, then who am I to tell you to not go over, but never make it clear in front of their date that you are there to try to take their company away.
– Make out with a co-worker or take her home.
If you consume too much alcohol this is something that can happen so be very careful. If you’re not under the influence of alcohol however and you get the urge to do this please do not do it at the party and you should also make sure that if you’re going to go off with someone, make sure he’s not married or has a date there with him.
