As the festive season begins it can only mean one thing… Work Christmas party time! Who doesn’t love getting partying with their co-workers only to inevitably end the night falling out of an Uber as you arrive at the closest McDonalds. ❤️ There is just something so special about celebrating the holidays in this way! We asked AI to imagine the types of people that would attend an office Christmas parties! As you can imagine, the results were super interesting and festive as can be!
So join us, as we shine the spotlight on these iconic types of people. Because if you say that you aren’t at least one of these people… you’re a liar 😍.
Now I think it’s safe to say that we all know that one colleague who ends up becoming the literal embodiment of JLO herself. We’re talking hair-ography, high kicks, and even the occasional hamstring-pulling split that you know they will regret doing in the morning. It’s giving Abby Lee’s Dance Company and we love that!
This kind of party guest can sometimes be a bit of a bummer. Everything will be going as planned, then suddenly explaining every single dramatic moment of their life to you. An encounter with them will usually happen in places like the smoking area or the bar. What started as a fun festive night has ended as a “One Night Only” Oprah Winfrey Special. Awks.
The Early Departer
This person always seems to not make it into many of the group pictures. Or any pictures at all to be honest. That’s because after being at the event for a grand total of 1 hour they are already calling their Uber home. I think we can all agree that we have been this guest at one point. If not, maybe this year is your time to shine 😘.
The Verbal Blossomer
You all know that one pretty shy and quiet co-worker who becomes a total party animal at the work function. They have this ability to morph into a completely outgoing person once the drinks are flowing. It’s always sweet seeing this guest at the party. It’s like they become Cinderella for the night – and at the strike of 7 am the next morning they are back to their former quiet selves.
The Tea Spiller
Now the tea spiller (otherwise known as an HR person’s worst nightmare) is that one person who gets a little too confident with what they decide to say about the rest of the office to each other. Let’s just say they are most definitely going to wake up with major anxiety and an email for a meeting with their company’s Peoples team…
The Party Pooper
Last (and definitely least) is that one partygoer who just can’t help themselves by reminding anyone and everyone that this is a holiday celebration is followed by work the next morning. This role normally is fulfilled by a boss of some sort, and is usually met with the same response of “who cares!” Although this is a pretty annoying thing to hear, you always can’t help thinking that they were right as you stumble into the office the next morning. Especially when you’re sort of out of it and trying to finish your work for the day.
No matter what type of guest you end up being this holiday season, at least we can all find solace in the fact that in the end, we will all be the same. Fighting off falling asleep at our desks the following morning. Happy Holidays!
