Christmas Party

Kan iets so eenvoudig soos die reëlings vir ‘n Kerspartytije so hande uit ruk? Arme vrou! Hehe!

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. And don’t be surprised if the MD shows up dressed as Santa Claus! A Christmas tree will be lit at 1.00 p.m.. Exchange of gifts among employees can be done at that time, however, no gift should be over R10.00 to make the giving of gifts easy for everyone’s pockets. This gathering is only for employees! The MD 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 recognise that Chanukah 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 enjoyment. Happy now?


Happy Holidays to you and your family,

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 R10.00 is too much money and Management believe R10.00 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 and 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 on 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 first.. There will be fresh fruits as dessert for Diabetics, the restaurant cannot supply “No Sugar” desserts. Sorry! Did I miss anything?!?!?!?!?!

RE: The F****** 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 f****** salad bar, including organic tomatoes, But you know tomatoes have feelings too. They scream when you slice them. I’ve heard them scream. I’m hearing them scream right NOW!! I hope you all have a rotten holiday; drink, drive and die.


The Bitch from HELL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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

    Ek voel omtrent soos sy. Altyd iemand wat iets anders wil hê sodat dit hulle moet pas. Hoekom reël hulle dit dan nie in die eerste plek self nie! By ons werk wil die baas se vrou nooit iets doen nie, maar sy is die eerste wat ‘n eiertjie lê oor die kleur van die servette, hoe die tafels geskuif is, waar is die blomme, ens.

    Uitstekend! Ek weet hoe sy voel aangesien ek ons eindjaarfunksie meeste van die tyd moet reEl en ‘low and behold’ daar is ALTYD ‘n moangat. ‘n Mens kan maar net lag. Hierdie jaar het hulle vir ‘iets anders’ gevra, so toe reEl ek ‘n bootrit (sunset-cruise) met braai. Nou’s almal ewe skielik bang hulle versuip of kots heel pad. Ek het seesiek-medikasie by die apteek gereEl en ‘vlerkies’ vir die wat nie kan dryf nie, maar nogsteeds kerm dit. Tuff. Ek gaan myself geniet! (mits ek nie ook oorboord hang nie…)

    Moeilik om almal tevrede te stel. Arme vrou. Lyk my die geheim is: Delegeer!! As jy nie kan delegeer nie moenie volunteer nie!! As jy genooi word – waardeer dit wat iemand anders baie moeite mee gedoen het!!
