hahaha this is a sore point for ms bossyboots as I own a business and have 12 to cater for! I am planning on taking them out for a big **** up though and each of them have been given £30 to cover the start of it.

Makershaker we are all meeting up at Jinty McGintys in Ashton Lane next saturday - come along for a wee half - but am not paying lol !!!! oh okay, maybe for the first one ...cheers xxx

never go to them for the following reasons, i could probably think of more:

i dont like some of the people i have to work with, so i dont want to waste my liesure time with them.

i might get drunk, and really embarrass myself

the meal usually opted for is a rip off, a bit of turkey first then 10 mins later two sprouts etc etc, finally they bring a gravy boat to share between 25 people. and charge 4x usual prices.

once went to toilet at one works do, came back about 3 mins later and the buffet had been opened and eaten by the fat *******s who take 3 plates each.

bah humbug

can i come to your do, that way i can embarass myself in front of your workmates instead of mine:w00t:

lol brilliant post:-D My girls have all said they dont want to go for a meal for exact reasons u have just put. They will all just go for the booze and knowing them they will also have their handbags i.e massive rucksacks crammed full of sneaky bottles:whistling:

There is a place in Exeter owned by Michael Caines called the Royal Clarence. Smashing place and a wonderful venue. Situated right opposite Exeter Cathedral. Going there for a few courses and a couple of beverages. Should be nice.

OH's work pay for a 5 course meal, alcohol and a disco. Unfortunately he and a few others got made redundant on Wednesday, but never mind cos all the managers can still go to the do, and get their big fat Christmas bonus, although how they get a bonus on a company that is underperforming so badly that staff have to be paid off amazes me!

I know what you mean, our mob had a big swanky party in a 5 star hotel for all the mangers in all the branches all over britain to celebrate the companys 30th anniversary, that was 5 months after telling us that this year we can no longer do overtime, we wont be getting a pay rise, their cutting our hours, no longer paying us any bonuses....etc

I'm gonna enjoy this freebie Xmas do more than ever this year, i've bloody earned it :x

Have never had a free Xmas works party. Work with a great team but we all hate the rip off Xmas packages. Would happily pay £40 for a meal but not mass produced turkey and sprouts which is no different from my local pub for £5. Also hotel priced drinks. :whistling:

Last year we went to a comedy night followed by the pub. Great time. This year we have booked to see an adult pantomime...followed by the pub
