      Shudder.....the only possible consolation could be, I dunno, a really good vantage point for taking out Twink with a sniper rifle?


      I'm with you on Christmas parties. I'll have nothing to do with them.


      Christ, what am I talking about? Old TCK worked for a company where you got two lousy drink vouchers and spent the whole night trying to pickpocket the MD, listening to crap about how "unappreciated" some lazy tosser was before they unceremoniously attempted a grope, resulting in TCKhaving to hand out a few well-deserved slaps.


      The new TCK has a part-time job where the Christmas budget is spent lavishly on champagne and cocktails and I don't even know most people's names so I don't give a toss what they want to whinge to me about, or even in whose handbag I am sick at the end of the evening

        great to hear i'm not the only one who hates christmas. It was depressing to walk out of the office last night and see the Christmas lights already on. Anyone got any good ideas of good destinations to go the week following Christmas? Any good deals out there?

          The only good thing about christmas is that it becomes acceptable to crack open a beer at 1 in the day.

                Apparently not. I did it in mass once and it cause uproar. I protested that the guy in the white dress standing behind that table at the top of the roomgot a mug full of wine, but the congregationwere having none of it.[img]smileys/thumb-down.gif[/img]


                Most annoying thing about christmas - shopping, leaving over-decorated houses a close second.

                    Even better on Christmas Eve when everybody else is wrapped up to their neck in the woolie clothes and the lassies are wearing skirts nearly up to their f***ys parading up and down O'Connell/William Street.

                      Reasons to hate Xmas:


                      Pubs full of once a year drinkers, 3 deep at the bar complaining at how expensive the drink is.


                      People who are miserable sods all year round suddenly discovering good cheer &amp; seasons greetings.


                      People handing out cards to everyone in sight at work, then they expect one back from me despite the fact I don't even know their name.


                      People who wear Santa Hats, Reigndeer Horns, Tinstle round their glasses etc. To show just how whacky they are.


                      All Xmas songs are rubbish except 'A fairytale in New York'.


                      People who call you 'scrooge' when you point out the above. Despite the fact that in the story of'The Xmas Carol' Scroogewas miserable all year round, then suddenly became full of good cheer etc on Xmas eve. Surely thenpeople who enjoy themselves all year, but dont really enjoy Xmas must be the Anti-Scrooge[img]smileys/lol.gif[/img]

                        Secret Santa in the office. [img]smileys/mad.gif[/img]No, I don't need a matching pink cappucino mug and mittens, or whatever noxious tat you've picked up. And I don't need to waste my time buying you one either. [img]smileys/thumb-down.gif[/img]

                            there is a way to end secret santa ruck.
                            one of the lads drew his bosses name out of the hat.

                            He got her a pair of vibrating underpants. [img]smileys/lol.gif[/img]

                            there has been no more secret santa in our dept since.
