Christmas Office Parties This Year

Ask a Question

Always a time of year where planning starts for christmas partys but with covid 19 will you risk it.

I think not for me would rather socialise in my bubble

Think there will be a lot less office parties this year, and if home working becomes a regular thing also in the future.

I'm currently a stay at home mum but even when I worked full time I never went to the Christmas party and not will I in the future.

What a stupid question to ask.

Is there something wrong with you?

Have you have seen the recent stats when it comes to Covid?

We're heading for another lockdown because of the youngsters, so get your toilet roll and pasta in.

mazza2112 Exactly - especially coming from someone who asked the MOST STUPID question I have ever seen on this forum. (it was regarding an Iceberg lettuce).

I simply don't know why such rude attacks are tolerated. (they're not supposed to be).

"Members who are rude or abusive may be banned without warning".

mazza2112 I'm so sorry. I will not question anything again 😐

Do you realize how bad this second spike is going to get?

You carry on putting your head in the sand.

I'm absolutely sick of people like you having a go at someone like me because they think that Covid is going away.

Do you understand that that they was nearly 3000 cases recorded yesterday?

I hope that if we go into another lockdown that you run out of toilet roll.

TheChimp Asking people "Is there something wrong with you?" (in a very rude manner) Isn't the kind of "question" that should be asked. Even if they get drunk and bleach their face. (I refrained - I didn't need to ask☺).

A bit harsh TheChimp but in essence, I do agree with you. How entitled do you have to be to feel that this is top of your agenda right now? Be thankful you have a job. Thousands that have not are going through a super tough time. I think A party is the last of anyone's concern when you need to keep safe and put food on the table. Xx

TheChimp I was referring to the fowl language you used in your post. Glad to see you have decide to edit it too take out the fowl language. Also not very nice to refer to someone as stupid and asking if there is something wrong with them. Yes you can put your point forward in a less aggressive manner. Not sure why you continued to rant on to me about Covid as you don’t even know what my views on Covid are, as all I was doing was referring to your aggressive rudeness towards Bossclazz question. Doesn’t cost you anything to be nice 👍

TheChimp You OBVIOUSLY don't like me - you don't seem to get on with many others either. For those who haven't noticed you seem to have issues with many others. Those who read the comments on this https://www.latestdeals.co.uk/deals/old-el-paso-fajita-kit-600g-chicken-fillets-the-co-opwill see how insulting you are to someone asking a perfectly reasonable question. They will also see how foolish you make yourself look when you say you they probably had to look up the spelling of the word "hindrance" when they were replying to a comment where YOU had just used it.

You are a self confessed drunk (you said you were drunk when you bleached your face). You probably removed the obscenities from your still disgusting answer on this thread when you sobered out enough to realise that if it was reported you might get banned from this group just as you got banned from "the other place" on the same day you came here.

It's time you grew up and learned that you can't have your own way all the time, people are allowed to not agree with you without you insulting them, and if you think I am not liked, please note; I don't particularly care if drunken foul mouthed trouble makers don't like me.

I think a few others you seem to have issues with should see this.

mazza2112 JessHindle and perhaps Tom Kelsey might be interested too. I'm amazed your first comment on this thread was allowed to remain,

davidstockport Good to see it's all kicking off on here without me. Honestly everyone, stop bickering and David, telling on people via tagging... Come on mate. How old are you? TheChimp stop winding up David 😄

My analysis of this by the way - TheChimp is extremely frustrated by the general stupidity of people during the past few months so any hint of complacency causes that frustration to flare up, naturally. Whether the wording used was ideal, I'm not sure but it was a comment with passion and meaning behind it so let's not all get worked up. Life's too short.

I lost count of how many times I had people attack me on here simply for having a strong or polarising opinion. Believe it or not Mr Stockport, the little gang going round self moderating the place like it's a private members' club actually comes across as particularly unpleasant in itself. You think you're helping but it portrays a clique that makes others feel left out. It's one reason I just don't bother coming on much now, along with the fact it's plagued with the same old deals day in, day out as well.

I hope you're staying well and happy though.

This is, despite what a known offensive poster said, quite a good topic for discussion, yesterday evening I was taking part in an AGM there were more on ZOOM (I was one of them) than at the actual meeting.

The usual annual Christmas meal (usually in early December) came up for discussion. I am happy to report that a vast majority were not very interested in the idea.

davidstockport I doubt very much if you're older than parents.

You need to get a grip and stop speaking down to people.

You should be ashamed of yourself.

Fair play, you must be one of the most odious people on this site.

I am now muting you again because I can't cope with your absolute crap.

By the way everyone, if you find my comments offensive, please feel free to mute me 😉

TheChimp You recently said your parents were in their MID seventies. Was that just when you'd been drinking? I don't speak down to people although sometimes when their level seems very low there is little alternative.

I have nothing to be ashamed of - I wonder if your parents, regardless of their age, can say the same thing.

It was just sounding out any views (last year there were over 30 of us - so early booking is essential) - My response was that we don't even know what restrictions will be in place in three months time. Most of us are elderly and I suspect most won't be interested even if restrictions are lifted,

Unless you only work with a handful of people, I can't see a lot of Christmas parties happening this year. Which will be another blow for venues. Large gatherings will likely still not be allowed. Plus, many struggling companies will simply not be able to afford to have them this year 🎅

Sadly office parties won't happen for various reasons in my opinion. It won't just be down to the health risks but also because venues are not fully open for that sort of thing and companies may have less budget due to losses this year. I'll certainly take a massive hit myself due to running a business in the industry that makes a lot more money over Christmas and NYE. I have lost thousands already this year. I'm willing to adapt and try to make money from my other income streams though, if people do their bit, act responsibly and stop needing the government to put them on a leash.
