You can shout at me as much as you like, but we all know it's coming - yes, the Christmas party is being arranged as you are reading this!
It is a time for letting your hair down, having a glass or two with you colleagues, dancing like an idiot and having a load of fun - but how many of us then turn into the 'secret sharer' - The person who tells their colleagues all about how they really feel about their job, that they are off on interviews, who they really don't like in the business - and worse still, all about their other halves and their libido! - Eeewwwww!
I hope/think I haven't been that person (yeah right you may say!), but I have been on the receiving end of the conversation at times and it really does change your perception of your colleagues if they 'share' too much! There are some things you just can't unhear.
So I know it's a bit dull and I may well get a few 'boooos' along the way, but surely the time has come to finally say no to the Jagerbombs and tequila slammers and keep the sharing of secrets for your mates!
Oh dear, the invitations to the Christmas party have just gone out and already I can't bear the comments from my colleagues about what I got up to last time. We all had a few too many drinks from the free bar and I ended up in a compromising position with someone who has now, thankfully, left the company.
