$500 budget for holiday party for project of 30+...goes without saying that half the group was late for the dinner and then everyone left barely after 11...most depressing holiday party ever

$500 buys at least 15 handles of Titos


In contrast, I organised my project's holiday party this year. 15 people, $4k budget


Where can you even go with that budget and # of people? Chilis would barely cover it


Or 5 kegs



Goes without saying that I was beyond pissed...leaving the office early for happy hour

Hahahaha.... god.
