Last week, I asked NewsDash readers, “Have you had or witnessed an embarrassing moment at an office holiday party?”

Only 14.3% of responding readers admitted to having had an embarrassing moment at an office holiday party, while 85.7% said they did not. However, 57.1% reported they have witnessed an embarrassing moment at an office holiday party, and 42.9% have not.

Not all shared the embarrassing moment they had or witnessed, with one saying, “I refuse to comment on the grounds that I may incriminate myself—or at least embarrass myself!” Most embarrassing moments shared involved alc.ohol.

Embarrassing Holiday Moments 

Drunk junior associate came on to the boss's wife.

Drunk master of ceremonies.

The usual embarrassment: someone drank too much and had to leave early.

Male senior partner of law firm assumed all the women in the office enjoyed his annual embrace and kiss at holiday party. UGH!!!!

Getting too drunk and throwing up.

I refuse to comment on the grounds that I may incriminate myself - or at least embarrass myself!

A woman who had too many holiday spirits, tried to sit on a table and promptly leaned back and fell off the back of the table. She had a long dress on that went over her head and it took her several excruciating moments with her bloomers on display to everyone to get herself together and back on her feet.
