I thought I'd share the "fun" had at my DH christmas party last night and see if anyone else had a funny, not so funny christmas party story this year.

Last night was my DH christmas party, every year they have it at Trey Yuen a local Chinese restaurant. They serve everything family style except for the soup and egg rolls. All was going fine, laughing, having drinks, talking:trink4: . Until.... The soup taken away and they were bringing out the egg rolls and clearing dishes and it happened, the waitress dumped and entire glass of iced tea in my lap. I know these things happen and she didn't do it on purpose but I was so embarassed:blush: , in front of my husbands coworkers, friends, bosses, the front of my pants, shirt and purse were soaked. I got up and walked out by the car and broke down crying, he came out and asked if I wanted to got home and one of his friends wife came to check on me. I have a little problem with my blood sugar, doctor didn't say I was hypoglycemic but it drops very low if I haven't eaten and as I say to my husband I get a little "wacked" in the head:cry: , which in my case I get upset very very easily. After calming down and going back in cold DH thought a Jack and coke would help things along:love: The rest of the evening was fine, it was just very embarrasing and cold.

Anyone else have a christmas party story?

oh my! I am very sorry that happened to you. I would have done the same thing you did, hypo or not!
Did the restaraunt make good with anything for you?

No, it was a company party, but the waitress stayed away for the rest of the evening.:rotfl:

lol... you would think they would at least have a manager apologize or something!

I don't have any funny Christmas party stories, but it never fails when I am in a crowded place, and have a couple drinks, my hands have minds of thier own and fly around. I almost ALWAYS end up knocking over a drink or two. This year I ALMOST knocked a drink into my husband's boss's wife. UGH.

I went to a party for my DH's work one time they had at a casino. A waitress dumped a glass of ice cold water all over a guy there at our table. Of all the people she could have done it to, it was the roughest looking guy there. He was a little scruffy looking guy, but he was fairly nice to her about it. He did make a few remarks after she walked off, but all in all he was nice.
*note to all* I am not saying that scruffy guys can't be nice, just that stereotypically we look at 'biker dudes' as being a little bit more rough around the edges. When you look around and the roughest looking guy is the one it happens to you have to giggle just a little and feel really sorry for the waitress at the moment it happens. I am sure she was expecting a lot worse reaction than she got. We got a new waiter too.
Another party was at the dog races (ugh!). One of the prizes they gave away was a photo with the winner of a certain race. They couldn't get anyone to take that 'prize'.:rolleyes:
