Last night there was a sit down dinner for 50. Okay, first of all-the attire. There were women and men in jeans, carharts, and tennis shoes. Then there were women in skimpy cocktail dresses more appropriate for a New Years eve shindig. Very few people were dressed in what one would consider appropriate for a work party-nice slacks and tie for the men, pretty dress or slacks for the women.
Second of all-the drinking. MOST of the people were okay but man they were SWILLING down the free wine, lol. One guy in particular we started slipping him non alcoholic wine because he got hammered within the first hour. He was kind of staggering from table to table by the end of the evening. A few others werent in much better shape. I'm not too sure about free drinks at parties....
And lastly, there was the poor couple with the 8mo baby who had to leave before the entree was served (we boxed it up for them). Baby was with grandma for the 1st time and grandma called 4 times because baby wouldnt stop screaming. They finally decided to just bag it and head home.
No debate or question, but I was kind of laughing to myself because it just seemed to cover EVERY spectrum of the things we've been discussing this week.
Now I'm off to work again. Tonights party is a bunch of lawyers who do a chinese auction every year and they stay for EVER....sigh. Oh well. They dont drink much though, lol!
