We recently asked members of our BuzzFeed Community to tell us the absolute WILDEST story they had from a holiday party and, whew buddy, they DID NOT disappoint. Here are just a few of the most unbelievable tales shared:
1. This '90s throwback:
"It's 1995. There's an open bar at my company party. I'm on the dance floor doing the moves to Madonna’s 'Vogue.' I slipped, fell into the table where the CEO was sitting, and completely upended the table. Food and drinks flew everywhere and my butt was in the air with my dress up and my undies showing. Needless to say, there was no more open bar at the parties after that..."
2. This horse tragedy:
"My company throws incredible holiday parties every year, so I have a few good stories, but my favorite was the drunk girl who ripped off her fake eyelashes and put them on the giant ceramic white horse they'd rented for decoration. She promptly started crying because she thought the horse had alopecia, since it 'didn’t have fur.'"
3. This inappropriate charade:
"We were all playing a sort of charades game at the holiday party (and had a few drinks) when one of my coworkers got the word 'nut.' Instead of pretending to be a squirrel or something...simple...she pretended to perform fellatio in front of three of our bosses. They were good sports about it and everyone laughed, but YIKES nonetheless."
4. This accidental show:
"A few years ago, I walked by my coworker's office while everyone was out on the dance floor and saw her ~heavy petting~ on top of her desk with the guy she brought to the party. This would've probably been whatever if it wasn't for the fact that her office literally had an all glass door."
5. This unexpected attack:
"One year, my boss and his wife got VERY drunk. I guess he said something she didn’t like, so she grabbed a wine glass, shattered it, and then went after him with the broken stem?! Thankfully, she didn’t get him, but they both ended up stumbling out of the restaurant and everyone left had to clean up their mess. They didn’t end up coming to another holiday party after that."
6. This shared secret:
"This really attractive 20-year-old guy at my work got really drunk and ended up kissing the 50-year-old boss's wife...in front of the boss. The boss didn't do anything. The drunk guy then — loudly — announced to everyone in earshot that they were sleeping together. The boss still said nothing. The drunk guy concluded with the fact that the boss watches them and 'gets off' on it. I don’t work there anymore...but I heard that guy was promoted and now in a managerial role."
7. This party of one:
"I had a coworker once come to our holiday party with armfuls of BIG Tupperware containers. She filled them all with free food and left. She even took a bottle of wine!"
8. This game gone wrong:
"My dad took me to his office holiday party with lots of high profile lawyers and conservative people. We were playing Speak Out and it was my turn to guess. My partner mumbled something about 'rubber ducks,' but for some reason I thought she said, 'duck dildo,' so I screamed so loud and excited, 'DUCK DILDO!' The entire room went silent and they all stared at me. Thankfully, everyone laughed after, but I was mortified!"
9. This tiny dancer:
"My mom works for a prestigious dentist in a big city. A gentleman who works there frequently takes the entire office on cruises and tropical vacations so, needless to say, the holiday parties are LIT. However, it's my own MOTHER who is known for getting hammered, getting on tops of tables, and doing what has been described by several co-workers to me as 'the Elaine dance.' If you aren't a Seinfeld fan, google that and have a chuckle imagining a 50-year-old woman doing that on a tabletop in front of her boss."
10. This festive fight:
"This story took place before I started, but it's now a holiday party legend at my office: Basically, our Head of Compliance (lawyer) was hit in the face with a glass beer bottle, got a tooth knocked out, and needed stitches in her lip. This was caused by a group of guys who were NOT part of our company who got in a fight at the venue’s bar and started throwing anything they could get their hands on."
11. This roommate surprise:
"I didn't witness this one, but I overheard the details: I worked for a catering company where the boss owned a resort on the south shore of Nova Scotia. At the end of the year, we'd all got to go there for a holiday staff party. We'd get shared rooms, have a buffet, dance, drinks — the works! Well, APPARENTLY, one of the girls on our team went to her room at the end of the night, only to walk in on her roommate getting double-teamed by two guys on the wait staff...neither of whom, I should mention, was her boyfriend. Still, we all lived by the credo: 'What happens at White Point stays at White Point.'"
12. This naptime caper:
"I used to work for a very conservative investment bank in Boston where there were seven partners who headed up the firm. The holiday parties were always lavish affairs held in incredible restaurants. One year, it was held in this very swanky lounge bar where it was top shelf open bar, so everyone was getting pretty tipsy. My coworker and I decided to head out early to go to another party and, when we opened the door to the coat room, we found one of the top partners assistant's fast asleep on the floor. She had even taken all the coats off the racks (many VERY expensive suit jackets, mind you) and made a nice cozy bed for herself!"
13. And finally, this number two:
"Our company holiday parties were held at one of the Smithsonian museums in Washington DC. As my husband was getting his coat, he saw there was POOP on the floor between the coat check and the bathroom, about 100 yards away. Just one, single, lone poop."
