You may be the life of the party, but that may not be cause for celebration by your employers. Moreover, your excessive partying – or socializing, or interoffice dating – could make you the target of co-workers with nothing better to do than talk about it.

 Just Say No: Don’t Bethe Lindsay Lohan of the Office
 Take a look at the entertainment section of any news site on the Internetand you’ll see several celebrities being bashed for their dedication to theparty scene. The coverage is positively brutal – and not because of its newsvalue. The truth is that people doing stupid things is a whole lot of fun to talkabout. This is a pretty good observation to embrace for your personal life. You maybe the life of the party, but that may not be cause for celebration by youremployers. Moreover, your excessive partying – or socializing, or interofficedating – could make you the target of co-workers with nothing better to dothan talk about it. There’s not much that fuels office gossip more than a bit of indiscretion.Add to that any office jealousies or feuds, and you’ve got a real publicrelations disaster on your hands.
 
 The Top Five Tips for Proper Behavior at Office Parties1.Dress Appropriately. You know that cute little strappy number onwhich you spent $1,000, but you can’t find anyplace to wear it? Theoffice party is not the place to trot it out. You know that office rulethat says no dating people from your department? How about theone about sexual harassment? This is
not 
the time to see how far youcan push these rules.2.Arrive On-time. It may be cool in your circle to show how full yoursocial schedule is by turning up at a party three hours late andstaying for 10 minutes. The plain fact is that your company party is a
company function
. Go ahead and pencil in about three hours. Yourboss is watching.3.Don’t Overdo. There’s an open bar and after the first three glasses,the mediocre wine tastes great! If you can’t say “no” in a timelymanner, drink club soda. This is not the time to get woozily outgoing.Believe me – you don’t want to sit through the Monday morningmeeting wondering what the heck you might have said or done at thecompany party.4.Inter-office Fireworks. Yeah, she’s a hottie. There’s no one in theoffice – including her – who doesn’t know that. You can be known asthe guy on the team, or you can be known as the guy who made anass out of himself with the office hottie. You may get a couple of high-fives that evening, but you won’t win any points with your company.
