Talking Points

Is it okay to get drunk at your office holiday party?

Adriane Beveridge, hairstylist: It depends on how conservative the business is. I am a hairstylist; it is normal for us to have a good time.

Truet E. Purnell, personal trainer manager: HELL NO! Whatever is on your mind about your co-workers, you will let it out unfiltered when drunk. Also, if you are very flirtatious, that will also come out when drunk.

Brian E. Young, art director: Drunk? Nah, limit yourself to a drink or two. If you really have the desire to get drunk, there are safer venues that won’t affect your livelihood.

Joel Lessard, wedding officiant: Sure, if your New Year’s resolution is to find a new job.
