"They" being the general department I'm in. For fucks sake.
Toying with resigning.
oh dear god
So wonderfully terrible
Going and participating would be awful, as would the "rehearsals". Going and having to watch - also awful. They've made it so I can't attend.
while they do it
For avoiding most things.
It's just going to be shit whether I participate or not.
A different department already did this a few years back and it was shit then. Why? Why has someone decided that this would be good?!
Itinerary,and right on cue, the flashmob!
photos are now just referred to as selfies.
"can everyone just close their eyes while we strip to our bikinis and dig out the inflatables, please?"
that they might want to try a flashmob.
It would make your Christmas party twice as fun.
Get in the bin.
(although that is terribly irresponsible and could endanger other lives.....but you have to weigh up the risks and merits,,,,which is worst
......or engineer it that in the actual thing your trousers fall down/rip
And if we get enough signatories the govn will have to force Senor to do this?!
and I'll think of a petition for you to do something worse. It'll be like that episode of peep show where everyone tries to get each other sectioned.
not sure what's worse than being part of a flashmob at work for a christmas do right enough
Lopes, are you planning to have a flashmob in your place for Christmas and you're just taking notes from here?
then there will be no one to "mob" or surprise, will it not just be line dancing?
Unless other departments are planning something as well.
or is that a bit 2014 now?
Grounds for cancelling the whole thing, right there.
Suggest a real-time reenactment of the Chilean miners story.
(they were kind of a big deal)
After some actual work, we got put into groups to "party plan" and went off to the different parts of the building.
My group was a fucking flash mob. We had to spend 2 hours in a sweatbox with a "choreographer" who couldn't count time in our normal clothes as no one had told us we were doing it.
Then at the start of the evening party we had to do it in the middle of the room, dancing around the fucking CEO who had a spotlight on her and everything. I fucking hated myself.
Caught up with my team afterwards - one of them had had a DJing lesson with Seb Fontaine, the other had done fucking wine tasting. I was so angry I could barely finish my free Mai Tais
That does sound very bad, and cringe-worthy probably worse for the CEO. I literally cant stand things like that, like on the X factor when someone is really bad I cannot watch - its my kryptonite
Bullets, knives, flamethrowers, pianos dropped on you and you're fine but some fucker puts X Factor on you and you're finished.
Not that I know of but admittedly its not tried or tested. Its not only X factor recently its been child buskers, I believe a symptom of X factor! I cant bare them.
and bad comedians
What is it with forced work fun?
I worked at a place where it seemed fancy dress was done on a monthly basis. Many a Friday id be sitting there in jeans & t-shirt whilst the rest of people on my bank of desks where dressed as the fucking avengers or something
To my current place where we were forced to go white water rafting in the Lee Valley centre.
As someone who is a poor swimmer and terrified of drowning after a bad experience as a kid, my day ended with me having a panic attack after an exercise where afterwards I found the point was to intentionally be thrown out of the boat bd
