Chooky and Brad's dos and don'ts
THEY will indulge in the bar tab, there’s a chance of flashing body parts and maybe the appearance of a mini-skirt and lycra.
But besides this, Rockhampton’s Sea FM morning crew Chooky and Brad will be on their best behaviour at their office Christmas party next weekend.
While there is a list of dos and don’ts at this festive work event, how far can you really go?
Chooky and Brad did a bit of online research in preparation for their upcoming party.
Chooky said he would swear by the rule of keeping your hands to yourself after admitting to an embarrassing moment at a staff Christmas party a couple of years ago.
“In a drunken’ moment I pinched my boss on the butt and he was not impressed,” Chooky said.
Although one of the big rules is don’t flash any part of your body, Chooky and Brad couldn’t confirm if they would break the rules or not.
Chooky said a big “no go zone” was sleeping with workmates.
“Come Monday morning, the whole office will know about it, and that’s not to mention the wife,” Chooky said.
They said when it came to the bar tab, it was important to enjoy it and drink responsibly, with two hands, that is.
“You’ve got to enjoy the bar tab; it’s part of your salary,” Brad said.
And while the guys said they had had plenty of experience being “that person everyone talks about Monday morning”, it wasn’t something they recommended for the average employee.
“We’ve had a lot of experience, but that’s because it’s part of our job to entertain,” Chooky said.
The entertainers of the office said they would keep their reputation up at the party.
“If that means Brad and myself making fools of ourselves then we will happily do that.”
The guys said they believed the Christmas party was not a place to ask the boss for a pay rise.
