Etiquette expert Barbara Pachter says many people dont realize they can be held accountable for their spouses wild antics at the office holiday bash.
Pachter once had a client whose husband got so drunk at the company holiday party he told off his wifes boss.
Two weeks later, she was fired for her hubbys outburst, and the couple divorced soon after.
With the wine flowing, Pachter says people tend to forget theyre still in a professional setting at a holiday work party.
In reality, the shindigs are a great opportunity to mingle, get to know co-workers, and impress the boss.
Pachter says employees should have fun but not be the fun, so dancing with the boss wife is never a good idea.
