I don't even get a free school Xmas dinner. I am expected to attend Christmas Dinner (and pay) and eat amongst children with bits of Xmas pudding stuck in the snot trailing from their noses.

I sent a circular round work asking people not to send me any cards as I'd only have to semd one back. So far, I have a return of NONE. Well happy. One bloke sticks his up on his computer.

bandito, I suppose it saves the embarassment of only receiving a couple.

Bottle of champagne, a days holiday on the 27th and 3 "free bar" parties across the country.

re: Xmas Freebies....

you should know boroboy? do they send cards in call centres or do you ring each other up?

So far no mention of a Christmas bonus for me so I'm hoping our suppliers send me lots of bottles of spirits.

Bandy, and I thought I was the Grinch.

LL, its pointless sending cards at work. Stick some cash in the charity box if you wish but dont send me a card with a snowman on or whatever.

Lisbon, you'll have been crossed of a few people's christmas card lists because of the snivelling tell-tale e-mail you sent to your boss.

I don't think I was ever in line to receive Christmas Cards of the useless tvvats referred to in my email. In fact it has been said that I am a whizz kid and the whole sorry episode should never have come about because you don't want to upset people like me. Apparently I am like a breath of fresh air.

Not my words mind, those of the Production Director....

I'm the lucky sod with the mp3 player winging it's way across the Atlantic. Plus we're getting a meal in a restaurant which is far too nice for the likes of me.
