15 People You’ll Probably (Definitely) See at Your Office Holiday Party
The good, the bad and the hammered
Ahh, the seasonally awkward office party--where imbibing and over-sharing abound. Love it or hate it, there’s no denying these 15 archetypes will make an appearance at your annual shindig.
The person who drinks too much
One tequila, two tequila, three tequila, please don’t throw up on the intern.
The person who can’t stop talking about work
How ’bout we lay off the expense reports for one night, Gina?
The person whose name you never remember
Heeeey, youuu! Cute skirt…
The plus one
Either supremely awkward or surprisingly adept at initiating conga lines.
The fun boss
Passing out drinks like it’s his job.
The boss boss
Sipping soda water and resenting the fun boss like it’s her job.
No, Tom. You can't trade LinkedIn endorsements for pigs in blankets.
The new guy
Started on Monday. Has no idea what to do with his hands.
The recent grad looking to recreate her sorority functions
Hey, Madison, let’s take it down a notch on the "nae nae."
Cheering on the former sorority girl. And getting side eye from boss boss.
The gossip girl
But, like, did you see her take a scoop of my hummus?
The wild card
Thought he might be mute. Had two Manhattans. Is, in fact, not mute. And is possibly about to lead group karaoke.
The undercover couple
The sexual tension is palpable…and hella awkward…and wait--did they just take a cab together?
The Irish goodbye-r
Has one drink. Slips out. Might not be seen until next year's party.
the person living in a glass case of emotion
To be avoided at all costs. Unless, oops, that's you.
