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.

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 Managing Director 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 recognize that Hanukkah 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

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 table... you 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? Somebody? 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.

RE: Holiday Party

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; 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

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

Did I miss anything?!?!?!?!?!

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

Vegetarian pricks! 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 ******* 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 them scream right NOW!!
Hope you all have a rotten holiday ! Drink, drive, and die!

The Bitch 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, Management has decided to cancel our Holiday Party and
instead, give everyone the afternoon of the 23rd December off with full

Love this one. Too true.

It really holds true about everything. The more inclusive you try to be the more headache there is. Sometimes the extra work is worthwhile, and well other times you know what happens.
