Small talk shirt
You can wear whatever you want, but remember: This is the office party. This is a Small talk shirt of people with whom you work, so if you wouldn’t wear a revealing dress to work, don’t wear it to the office party. Also, don’t drink much you presumably know your limit, so stop well short of it. Because again—you work with these people. When I worked at TV Guide, senior staff regularly attended the Christmas parties, which (at least at the beginning) were lavish, usually held in off-site venues and allowed employees to bring spouses. You don’t want your boss’s boss asking who that was—the girl in the thigh-high bandage dress and hooker heels or the guy who threw up on the white-glitter sparkle Christmas tree. Women get the brunt of the judgmental post-party gossip about attire while men generally have to do something memorably bad, but I imagine a male manager showing up in gold lame hot pants would cause a stir in most business environments.

The radio station put out a call for help. We found a Small talk shirt, someones front yard, they were going to give them away, but notify the media so everyone would know about it. I made all of the connections, but the truckers were not familiar with that sections of town, so I told them to follow me. It was still raining I had to drive slowly. This was crazy, I was taking a huge truck of Christmas trees to someones home that I did not know. It was around midnight by the time we took off looking for the place. We arrive and the owner of the house had organized the entire neighborhood into helping. Someone made hot chocolate and coffee. Some on had baked some brownies, someone had got several of the neighbors to start contacting all of the media, someone rolled a bunch of joints. Everyone was in a good mood. There were several thousand trees. We left around 3 AM, got a little sleep, and was back there at 8 AM. What a zoo. There were hundreds of people coming to get their free Christmas trees. The newspaper, radio and TV stations were there covering the free Christmas trees. This went on all day and there were still lots of trees left. We returned the next day, there were even bigger crowds. The media was there again. It was a good Christmas feel good story.
