Leave the coconut bra at home, please
It’s been awhile since I highlighted a survey from CareerBuilder, but I thought this one an appropriate and appropriately light-hearted one to leave you with this holiday season.
Workplace holiday parties – a great example of something we all love to hate – can be stressful to plan and carry off without offending someone. We all try to make them as fun as possible, and some sort of gift exchange is often part of that effort. However, I guess we still need to work on this!
CareerBuilder's annual survey is out:
Most Unusual Gifts
Traditional holiday gifts are still office regulars: ornaments, gift cards, books and candy, but some workers may not know where "the line" is when it comes to holiday gift-giving at work. The following are among the most unusual presents workers received from co-workers:
- Two left-handed gloves
- Coconut bra
- Jar of gravy
- A fake lottery ticket
- A real stuffed duck
- Toilet paper that looked like money
- Post-it Notes
- Dish detergent
- A pen holder that looks like a crime scene victim
- A comic book of an obscure movie
- A handmade ornament for a sports team the recipient had never heard of
- A singing chicken
- A whip
Merry Christmas and Happy Chanukah!!
