“We were annihilated and I was caught by my manager giving a double blow job to my colleagues at the bar.

“One of the guy’s secretaries came over and pulled him away, across the dancefloor, with his trousers around his ankles. The whole place copped an eye-full.”

Russell barely managed to keep her job, and says she had to pretend there had been a death in the family to explain her outrageous behaviour. 

“As you would expect, I don’t work there anymore,” she says. “People in the office never looked at me the same way again.”

However, HR manager Cannon says we shouldn’t let worst-case scenarios stop us having a good time at seasonal events. 

“The work Christmas party is a chance to let your hair down a bit, so don’t worry too much,” she says.

“Throwing up and going home early are minor – things like that can be forgotten over time.

”It’s embarrassing, but she says being jovial can work.

“Sometimes laughing it off or cringing and promising that it will never happen again will be fine – soon someone else will do something worse and will have their turn at being the talk of the office.”

Quick Tips for the office Xmas Party

• When talking to your boss with others, don’t outshine people who need the spotlight more than you, it will make them bitter and hate you.

 • Eat before you go to your work party. Most people will have come straight from the office, so if you sneak in a snack you’ll be able to match them drink-wise and not get wasted. Eating is not cheating

.• Leave when you feel too drunk. Even if you’re having the time of your life, if you can’t see straight the chances are you’re making a prick out of yourself. It’s time to leave. You can thank us later.
