You sound like someone who wanted to do something they knew wasn't exactly right, asked others in order to get "permission"/validation that it's OK to do what they already decided anyway, then got mad when they didn't get the response they wanted. Thanks for wasting our time though.

No, others will not have had a chance to bring their SO and so neither should you, unless you want to get hate from your co-workers.

Depends how many people are there (if anyone can tell he's not an employee) and how you are allowed in. We used to bring people from other agencies into the starcom party bc all you needed was to show your work id. But they accepted temp ids that didn't have a picture on them, so it was easy.

Ditch halfway or just go to yours

Nah, just getting what you asked for is all

Sure will- especially if they’re over budget and had to bend over some kind of way to get approvals.
