7 Types Of People You See At Every NYC Office Christmas Party

Office Christmas parties are probably not the type of Christmas parties you look forward to. But you still feel obligated to go. Here are the seven types of people you’ll definitely see there:


1. The boss who’s trying really hard not to have fun

We get it, Janice, you want to maintain your authority. You’re still in charge, we just wish you’d lighten up a little bit.


2. The bad dancer

Usually reveals himself/herself once someone puts on Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You.” People’s reactions depend on how much egg nog they’ve had to drink.


3. The one who drinks too much

Speaking of which. It’s a good thing we live in a city where nobody drives to work, because if we didn’t you’d be very concerned about this person getting home.


4. The guy who’s still on a sales call

Todd…you know the party started an hour ago, right?


5. The person who brought a Tinder date as their plus 1


First of all, you must have lied to this person about what they would be attending in order to convince them to come. Second, no matter how charming you are, they’re never going to speak to you again.


6. The flirt


Couldn’t even find a date from Tinder, so they’re now working the room. May have even brought their own mistletoe to hang in the doorway.


7. The perv/inappropriate Santa

Did you not pay attention during your sexual harassment course? No, I don’t want to sit on Santa’s lap. No thank you.
