Last year I skipped the firm dinner. So, because I was absent last year, I thought that I should attend this year. WHAT A BIG FUCKING MISTAKE!!!
At our firm dinner at the end of the month, we all have to participate in some kind of “performance.” My group is going to play the song “I Just Called to Say I Love You” on a bunch of different types of drums with one person on keyboard. This despite the fact that none of us has an ounce of musical talent. We have to practice this stupid song after work at 5 different times, each practice lasting about 2 hours. They even hired a music teacher to teach us how to play this stupid song. Now, they just sent me an email with different cat woman type masks that we have to choose from to wear when we perform. And, these people are adults!! They can’t just have dinner with each other, chat and go home. No, they have to be “entertained” in the most infantile way or they pout b/c it’s all so “wu liao.” Well, if they weren’t such boring twits themselves, perhaps they could enjoy each other’s company without such kindergarten type theatrics. I go to work to make money. I don’t want friends, I don’t want to be entertained, all I want is to exchange my labor for money and go home. If I was rich and did not need to work, my office is the last place that I would be. Don’t hire a music teacher, don’t rent drums, don
