Advice

I embarrassed myself at the office party!

Question:
At every office party, there is always a colleague who makes a fool out of her or himself and makes it into the company’s Hall of Shame. Well, this year, that’s me. I had a little too much to drink, OK more like way too much champagne. What happened after that was hazy but I vaguely recall doing the Gangnam Style dance, confessing my adoration for my office crush, and throwing up over my boss. The party was last Friday night and now I’m dreading to go into work on Monday. Please help!

Answer:
Oh dear, it seems like your act of festive cheer may have un-done all the hard work you put in this year and seriously damaged your credibility in the office. That’s why it’s always on the wise not to overindulge on the bubbly in company settings. But that’s another story. We are here to help you do some damage control now.

When your boss asks you out...

Question: I’ve always had a good and perfectly professional relationship with my male boss but lately, he has been dropping by my desk for long chats and asking me personal questions like what kind of flowers I like. Yesterday, he asked me out for dinner. I do enjoy working with him but it is purely because of work. What should I do?

Answer: Poor thing! Being asked out on a date by your boss is one of the toughest stuck-between-a-rock-and-a-hard-place situations one can get into.
