9 signs it's definitely time to leave the work Christmas party

Oh dear, you went too far.

SO IT’S YOUR work Christmas party, but you have a sneaky suspicion you’re making a show of yourself.

Here’s how to identify the right time to get outta there.

1. The free drinks are long gone

The company was kind enough to give you all an allocation, or even a tab. But it’s run out and now you’re actually angrier than if there was never any at all.

HIT THE ROAD.

2. When you start to find Kevin from accounts attractive, having avoided him in the kitchen all year

He’s kinda cute if you squint a bit, and you don’t see him enough that things would get awkward…

SAY SAYONARA.

3. When you say ‘I probably shouldn’t say this but…’ to your boss. See also, ‘stop me if this in inappropriate, but’…

STOP YOURSELF. LEAVE.

4. When you start admitting things, start admitting yourself to the cloakroom

No, it’s not the perfect time to admit that you called in sick that day due to a manky hangover.

BUH BYE.

5. You’re buying shots for the whole team

NO. Snap your card, getting a new one is less hassle than checking your empty bank account tomorrow.

FIND THE EXIT.

6. When you tell somebody that you love them, like not in that way but you really LOVE THEM

You don’t love them, you just like them.

TAXIIIII.

7. Someone comments that you’re ‘nothing like this in the office’

SCRAM. SCADADDLE.

8. You’re genuinely discussing having everyone back to yours to keep the party going

A good idea now, but nothing good happens at the after-party.

GO HOME. ALONE.

9. Someone says ‘we’ll talk about this on Monday’

You won’t, because you’ll be in Asia by then.

LEAVE. THE COUNTRY.
