Every year the office manager plans a Christmas party, and every year that party is boring.
- I’ve been with the company for 12 years and this year was the first time I ever had fun at an office Christmas party.
There have been a lot of new hires and some of those people are younger Millennials that brighten up the place and give the office a lot more energy and youth. I’ve been thinking about making a change and leaving this particular company, but the money is so good that I hate to leave. These new guys will work for 30% less if they can wear jeans and sneakers to work. One of those guys brought recreational marijuana to the last office Christmas party. Things were boring and basic until Jack started telling everyone that he was going outside to smoke recreational marijuana and anyone could join him if they wanted. He had top shelf infused marijuana joints and they tasted like eggnog. He passed out a small infused marijuana pre-roll to every person that came downstairs. I had a couple of hits from one of the recreational marijuana joints. Joyce from accounting came downstairs and acted like she saw us committing a crime, even though recreational marijuana is perfectly legal in this state.She came outside where we were smoking marijuana, rolled her eyes, puffed, and walked back into the building. She wouldn’t even look at me when I walked back upstairs and we have been working together for 8 years. There are so many people in this office that are prudes, but it looks like the cool people might start to build in numbers.
