The silly season is upon us: the Christmas decorations are up; the office is slowly thinning out as people use up their remaining holidays; the Secret santa draw has left you needing to buy a gift for someone you’ve never spoken to.
- telling either party that their object of affection hooked up with you at last year’s Xmas bash and then blanked you the next day;
- telling them that the job application of the person they fancy ran to seven pages due to disclosure of medical conditions;
- actually throwing cold water on them at the first sign of inappropriate activity. The friendly waiting staff at All Bar One will be able to lend you an ice bucket.
