My co-worker and I plan our branch's holiday party every year, and every year the employees prove how ungrateful they are. They were allowed to invite whomever they wanted to come, and they did--including neighbors down the street and people they barely know! They even walked in with people that weren't registered! We barely had enough food to feed people!
This year it was a great do--with a DJ, great food and TONS of door prizes (gift cards, televisions, I-pods, etc) and gifts for everyone. Throughout the whole thing, people b*tched about everything.
The straw that broke the camel's back: I discovered today that there was a handful of dishonest employees that took extra raffle tickets when they already got their allotted amount.
So next year, it will only be employees, one adult guest, and children under 18 that LIVE IN THE HOUSE--no nieces, nephews, grandkids, weekend stepkids, or anything else.
The actions of a few ruined it for everyone else. Our company gives us a generous budget for a party, and they are so UNGRATEFUL!! One of my pet peeves in life is UNGRATEFULNESS!!!!
Thanks for listening to me rant.
