Christmas party..

Recommended Posts

The president of the credit union where my wife works has an employee Christmas party every year. This year it was at HIS house (mansion on the intracoastal waterway) and he decided to invite personal friends in addition to the employees. I hate going but I have to because it's the "right" thing to do and the wife threatens to do something evil to me in my sleep if I act up at the party. The president, how do I say this?, is fond of men.

Well, there was roughly 200 people at the party and I'd say men out numbered the ladies at least 3 to 1. We weren't there 5 minutes before I opened my politically incorrect mouth and embarrassed the wife.

I settled down after I put in a chew of Redman and made it known I was happily married.

This is where things took a turn for the worst. I was standing next to the Hors'dourves (sp) talking to some people whom I felt comfortable with when I noticed this guy double dip his shrimp into the cocktail sauce and discard the tail back onto the tray of shrimp. In fact, the tail landed on top of uneaten shrimp. Of course I made a somewhat rather loud comment. Not a minute later another guy came over and did the same thing followed by a lady who peeled the tail off before double dipping and threw the tail onto the uneaten shrimp. Very sarcastically I said "so what do you think about DOUBLE DIPPERS?"

Where are these people's manners? We're talking multi millionaires arriving in Rolls Royces and Bentleys.

Another lady came over to the vegetable tray and dunked her celery into some dip and then LEANED over the tray and consumed her food. I mean she actually BENT over at the waist and ate over the rest of the food. That did it for me. I made it very clear to others whom I knew as to what was going on and before I knew it, I had a crowd of about 10 people gathered around making faces and refusing to eat anything.

The same group of double dippers demolished that shrimp and vegetable platter and every time someone different would take a shrimp and dip it, I would say "how's that shrimp taste?" They would just look at me clueless.

One of the doctors where I work has offered to write doctor excuses for Christmas parties people do not want to attend. ;D

"How cool would you look if you showed up with two friends that ate all the appetizers?" Fry, Futurama

I guess that doesn't apply here! That is disgusting, I love shrimp but I would really have to think about eating food that has been subjected to that behavior!

You should have one-upped them and quadruple dipped everything.

I was going to lick my finger and scoop it but the wife threatened me with unspeakable/thinkable things.

No pop tarts for a week?

Reminds me of my trip to a chinese buffet last week.  While at the bar, this little kid was digging in his butt  before coughing onto his hand and than grabbing into the eggroll pan bare-handed and picking up 4-5 rolls before finding the one he likes.

I'd vote for that.  Maybe if you did it in front of the president, he wouldn't invite you back next year.  Problem solved! ;D

I make my living working in the homes of wealthy people.  For the most part, they are genuinely nice people who do not put on airs and actually try to make you feel comfortable while working in their home.  They are men and women who grew up in Anywhere, USA and, through hard work and more than a little luck, became wealthy.  Most of them do not forget where their roots are.  Most of them would never double-dip, because of they were taught how to conduct themselves in public; usually by their parents.

Do not pre-judge an individual because of the parties he or she hosts.  After all, many of the attendees may not have had the benefits of an education in proper conduct.

There aren't any more rich d-bags than poor d-bags. You're either a d-bag or you're not. It has nothing to do with money, but it's more noticeable and less acceptable for a rich person to act like that.

If this happened at my house I would take the offender aside and politely explain to him that what he was doing was unacceptable.

If this happened anywhere and the offender was someone I knew, I would do the same.

If I were a guest among strangers as you were, I would have another drink or two, politely thank the host and excuse ourselfs early for another engagement.

::)

The proper etiquite for these types of parties is to take your hand and put it down the front of your pants, scratch real hard, remove your hand, and select something to eat.

That would have really have turned everyone on.   :D

TIMMY: What are you doing?

GEORGE: What?

TIMMY: Did...did you just double-dip that chip?

GEORGE: Excuse me?

TIMMY: You double-dipped the chip!

GEORGE: "Double-dipped"? What are you talking about?

TIMMY: You dipped the chip. You took a bite. <points at the dip> And you dipped again.

GEORGE: So...?

TIMMY: That's like putting your whole mouth right in the dip! From now on, when you take a chip - just take one dip and end it!

GEORGE: Well, I'm sorry, Timmy...but I don't dip that way. <takes a chip.>

TIMMY: Oh, you don't, huh?

GEORGE: No. <dips the chip> You dip the way you want to dip...<bites the chip> I'll dip the way I want to dip. <dips the chip again.>

TIMMY: Gimme the chip! <Grabs George and the chip goes flying.> Gimme the chip! <They struggle in front of the snack table.>
