Company Christmas party-driving coworker
Thu, 12-04-2003 - 12:42pm
My company Christmas party is tomorrow and I'm friends with one of the girls so we are going together. I'm going over to pick up her and her boyfriend beforehand and afterwards we plan on going out to the bars with some other coworkers. She doesn't like to drink and drive and she's only been here a few months and doesn't know the city that well and her boyfriend is from out of state so she asked for me to come over and pick her up. I don't have a problem with it because she's only 10 minutes from me. She's 23 and I'm 31 so she's in that college drinking mode yet but she's really spunky and outgoing, whereas I'm kind of shy, so I enjoy hanging out with her. I've been out to the bars with her one other time where I also drove her and her boyfriend and that ended up with her having too much to drink and getting upset over some little thing with him. He walked out of the bar with a drink so when he tried to get back in they wouldn't let him. She wouldn't talk with him and he ended up leaving, I guess took a cab home, and I took her home. They made up, but almost every Monday morning she tells me how she and he got into a fight over something stupid because they were drinking and they always make up the next day. The last thing I want is for them to get into a fight and me to be in the middle of it, but I have a feeling that is what will happen. What should I do?
