    Ok. So we had this company Christmas party tonight - I work in transit so it included ALL the drivers and their SO's or kids or whoever they decided to bring. First came the safety awards YAWN. Then came some music and salad. By this time it is 7pm.... Fiance is getting bored and tired and we are all squished into a table made for six with 9 of us. They come to collect the dinner cards at 7:30. 8pm comes with what none of us orders so there we are moving steaks all over the place so everyone had what they wanted. 8:30 we said BYE BYE!

    RE: Christmas Party

    I'm happy to inform you that the company Christmas Party will take place on December 23rd, starting at noon in the private function room at the Grill House. There will be a cash bar and plenty of drinks! We'll have a small band playing traditional carols...please feel free to sing along.

    And don't be surprised if the MD shows up dressed as Santa Claus! A Christmas tree will be lit at 1.00p.m.. Exchange of gifts among employees can be done at that time, however, no gift should be over $10.00 to make the giving of gifts easy for everyone's pockets.

    This gathering is only for employees!

    The MD will make a special announcement at the Party.

    Merry Christmas to you and your Family.

    RE: Holiday Party

    In no way was yesterday's memo intended to exclude our Jewish employees. We recognise that Chanukah is an important holiday, which often coincides with Christmas, though unfortunately not this year. However, from now on we're calling it our 'Holiday Party'.

    The same policy applies to any other employees who are not Christians. There will be no Christmas tree or Christmas carols sung. We will have other types of music for your enjoyment.

    Happy now?

    Happy Holidays to you and your family,

    RE: Holiday Party

    Regarding the note I received from a member of Alcoholics Anonymous requesting a non-drinking didn't sign your name. I'm happy to accommodate this request, but if I put a sign on a table that reads, 'AA Only', you wouldn't be anonymous anymore!!!!How am I supposed to handle this?


    Forget about the gift exchange, no gift exchange allowed now since the Union Officials feel that $10.00 is too much money and Management believe $10.00 is a little cheap. NO GIFT EXCHANGE WILL BE ALLOWED.

    RE: Holiday Part

    What a diverse group we are!

    I had no idea that December 20th begins the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, which forbids eating and drinking during daylight hours. There goes the party! Seriously, we can appreciate how a luncheon at this time of year does not accommodate our Muslim employees' beliefs, perhaps the Grill House can hold off on serving your meal until the end of the party - or else package everything up for you to take home in a little foil doggy bag.

    Will that work?

    Meanwhile, I've arranged for members of Weight Watchers to sit farthest from the dessert buffet and pregnant women will get the table closest to the toilets, Gays are allowed to sit with each other, Lesbians do not have to sit with gay men, each will have their own table.

    Yes, there will be flower arrangements for the gay men's table too.

    To the person asking permission to cross dress - no cross dressing allowed.

    We will have booster seats for short people.

    Low fat food will be available for those on a diet.

    We cannot control the salt used in the food we suggest those people with high blood pressure taste the food first.

    There will be fresh fruits as dessert for Diabetics, the restaurant cannot supply 'No Sugar' desserts. Sorry!

    Did I miss anything?!?!?!?!?! Pauline.

    RE: The ******** Holiday Party.

    Vegetarian *****s I've had it with you people !!!

    We're going to keep this party at the Grill House whether you like it or not, so you can sit quietly at the table furthest from the 'grill of death', as you so quaintly put it, you'll get your f****** salad bar, including organic tomatoes, But you know tomatoes have feeling too, They scream when you slice them. I've heard them scream.

    I'm hearing the scream right NOW!!

    I hope you all have a rotten holiday, drink drive and die.

    The ***** from HELL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    RE: Pauline Lewis and Holiday Party

    I'm sure I speak for all of us in wishing Pauline Lewis a speedy recovery, and I'll continue to forward your cards to her. In the meantime, the Management has decided to cancel our Holiday Party and instead, give everyone the afternoon of the 23rd December off with full pay.
