Christmas party's

The Mrs & I are heading to the first of 3 company Christmas parties. I don't normally go but I've only been with the company for 6 months and my boss personally invited me, I feel obligated. Not to mention, this one has an open bar so, it won't be so bad.

Just curious how many of you go to company parties and do you go because you want to or because you feel you have to. Merry Christmas!

my wife used to be the head of her companies employee activity committee; not only did we have to go every year, but we sort of had to set up to an extent, make sure everything was going smoothly etc. It wasn't bad though; the people she works with aren't sticks in the mud. they like to have a good time, and have lots of cocktails etc.

but anymore, I don't really care to go to any of them. when I was at my last two jobs, I didn't go. One company was a big one, and the other only an office of 40. Didn't give a shit. people were shocked that I didn't want to go etc Pass.

I also got a bonus at my last company....$75. awesome.
I hated that ****ing place. SO glad I'm at my current company.
and at the other place, I whopping $.75/hr increase in pay in 3 years.

left that shit hole and got a 40% raise going to the place I'm at now; and got out of the dead-end project controls career. I do NOT recommend that to anyone - unless your from the Middle East. they seem to be passionate about it. why?.....not ****ing clue.

I worked for a company a few years ago where the tight ass owner gave me a bonus. I was the top sales guy in the company and doubled the income of my region that year.

One day a check shows up in the mail with a long had written letter from the owner telling me what a hell of a job I had done and how proud he was of me. Along with the letter was a TEN DOLLAR CHECK. (No bullshit, there are guys that post here that have seen it)

I took the Check and letter into Hobby Lobby and had them framed with some clowns and a Mickey Mouse picture. The check and the letter are hanging in my man cave. I called my direct boss the next day and put in my notice. The owner called me up and asked "why are you leaving?" Heh, that was an interesting phone conversation.

While I was talking with him on the business cell, I went and took a picture of the framed check/letter hanging on my wall in the Man Cave with my other cell and emailed it to him.

Me: "Did you get my email?"

Owner: Yes

Me: "Did you open the picture?

Owner Yes

Me: "That would be why I'm leaving, Ace."

Heh! I did the exact same thing for our department party. There are about 25 of us of which two are women and they decided to impose a white elephant gift exchange. Screw that!

We also have a company party at an expensive ballroom. I've never attended.

my wife's last few xmas parties we got 4 tickets good for drinks at the bar, then after that was cash bar. the parties were typically held at one of the casinos, or the Overland Park convention center. The last two at the OPCC, we lived about 1/16 of a mile from it. but it was nice to have the option to just get a room for the end of the night etc.

My wife's old company used to throw big Christmas parties for their warehouse crew. They'd also bring in some of the creative talent (like my wife) and sales reps. I always kind of felt bad, because they'd have the "party" at one place, hang for about an hour, then the owners would take all the creative talent and sales reps out on the town, leaving all the warehouse workers behind.

Eventually people said "Can't we just get a bonus or something instead of spending all this money on a party?"
