You gotta love FoxNews, but that's the headline and graf for this story about hooking up at holiday parties:
Sound advice, probably vetted by inhouse counsel. Sure, there was some mumbo-jumbo about how this may not be a great idea after all, but I stopped reading -- who needs that buzzkill? Come on, we all have some legendary firm holiday hook-up stories, don't we?
‘Tis the season for mistletoe, but you could get yourself into trouble with your boss and co-workers, if you don’t play your cards right. After all, the holiday office party wouldn’t create such buzz if it didn’t have the potential to cripple your career. But before you go into bah-humbug mode, forgoing any passion or pleasures an evening’s festivities may invite, let’s take a look at the pros of going from mingling to making out to hooking up at a holiday office party.
First, while this may not seem like a pro to some, you could meet up with your future husband or wife. People have been known to find their life partner at the holiday party, which would ultimately undo the drawback of any ho-ho-ho status you earned prior to the wedding date.
Second, if you score with your boss, pending any pursuit of sexual harassment charges, you could end up with a nice promotion or some other perk in being the boss’ pet project, if just for a night.
Third, by earning the office floozy or stud title, you counter any word around the office that you are some boring, heartless Scrooge. You are, in fact, fun-loving and lovable and your post-party conquest may speak to that.
Fourth, you get to show off your dirty dancing skills, if not glimpses of your favorite lingerie, should you be sporting any. You may never be on “Dancing with the Stars,” but you’ll take five minutes of fame in fulfilling your amateur dream on the company dance floor anytime.
Finally, you’ve given everyone a night to remember. And if you didn’t use protection, you may have even gotten a souvenir or two out of it for yourself. Who doesn’t like a gift that keeps on giving?
Now excuse me I have to get my daily Neil Cavuto fix.
