Vodka, Dick and a very late night

I’m posting a little bit early today, as I won’t be around this evening. I have my team’s Christmas party to attend at a Hotel near Heathrow, and it’s going to be an overnighter due to the copious amounts of vodka that I’ll no doubt be consuming.

I must admit that I’m not particularly motivated by this one… I only have a couple of weeks left, taking unused leave into account, and frankly I’d be just as happy if they got on with it themselves. The only good thing is that Dick’s also coming. Now Dick and bars don’t tend to mix very well, and he invariably gets himself in a state of such complete drunkenness that he can barely speak. And when he does speak, anyone within earshot tends to cringe at the juvenile drivel that escapes his lips. Bearing in mind that I frankly couldn’t give a flying fuck what I say to him anymore, this looks like a recipe for fun!

Actually, I’ve been trying to remember if there are any babe’s worthy of mention in the team, as I doubt very much that I’ll be on my best behaviour. Unfortunately, unless there have been any new starters lately that I’ve forgotten about, my only chance of a shag will be with the staff. Naturally I’ll keep you advised of any developments in this respect…

Things were looking pretty stable on the GG front – I was going to speak to her over the weekend to make a plan to meet up some time next week – and then last night happened. Thirteen texts in the space of one hour. I’ll say that again… thirteen texts in the space of one hour. Now, I’m trying to deal with this the right way, but the chances are that if it happens again there won’t be any meeting up next week. I’ve had an interesting exchange of emails on this very subject, and will probably post about it over the weekend. In the meantime, don’t panic, Nukie. The 5th isn’t until Monday.

13!! That's sligtly sociopatic. Or maybe just her first properly broken heart ever.. Hm, I'm not really helping here, am I... Is she very young? I have looked but couldn't see an age anywhere. At any rate best of luck.. And the office party; it'll be fun. If not you can always create your own fun by photocopying yourself shagging someone, or something (fax / photocopiers usually available in reception area of any good hotel, you know)

We Americans are so boring. My office party is never exciting. No one ever gets completely shit faced or anything.

I did visit our London office last year and they met for happy hour every day and got royally shit faced at least once a week - prompting half the staff to come into work in the same outfits I saw them leave in the day before.

Damn puritans! Now I know why they left the UK, they probably got booted for being party poopers.

Have fun at your party and I hope the thing with GG doesn't turn stalker crazy.

E-E said...

ok, yes, this is looking slightly socio-pathetic, that's what it's looking like. Damn. I used to feel bad for her. Now I feel like taking her over my knee!!!
(And I do NOT mean that in a sexual way AT ALL!)
Shit, how old was this girl anyway? I think the last time I remotely acted that way I was 12.
And to think, we had no text messaging software back then!
Honestly, W., she doesn't even deserve a response at this point, other than to say grow up and F-off, and I truly think seeing her in person is the worst thing you could do. I know this is harsh, but...
Text message her this:
GG: get a grip, honey. Goodbye.

My best...
oh, and, btw... I LOVE the English use of the word "shag"
It is soooo damn cute!!!

Blondie said...

About the party... God I haven't been to a great departmental party for a long time. I loved my last job because I was one of the two token females. Spoils a girl to being doted on. lol Who knows about getting a shag...maybe you'll find some pretty thing on the prowl.

Jesus H Christ, 13 Text messages?!?!?!?! Ack, babe, I do hope you find a way to block them without having to change your number.

PS, I'd let you appreciate that a lot if you were closer too. Over and over...haha

xx

ladylongfellow said...

Poor GG everyone calling her a nutcase..lol...she thinks she is in love and losing something she loves..give her a break..sheesh! OK granted...13 texts with no response is a bit much...you don't own any rabbits do you? Remember the movie Fatal Attraction? *shiver*

unforgiving b*tch said...

13!?!?! Oh dear goodness.

I feel for you babe.

I do hope you have fun at the Christmas party -- though I wish I was there to give you the possibility of a shag...(sometimes my own naughtiness amuses myself.)

Have a good weekend--don't do anyone I wouldn't do.

sirreene said...

So what is her Blog url so we can read what she has written about you?
....I told you no phone! have fun at the party. Personally, I always love dick parties!

Sher said...

13 text messages and you are still contemplating meeting with her?

Oh my God, that will only lead to 30 text messages, sleeping on your porch waiting for you, and cutting her wrists in front of you the next day.

Wacky broad.

Networkchic said...

Oh Christmas parties can be so much fun...but dangerous too.

GG is standing dangerously close to that line between pathetic/stalker. What does she hope to accomplish?

check said...

ok, 13 in an hour is crazy... i dont see what else you could possibly do except just tell her that enough is really enough.. and it means what it says, nottt 'please text me some more'

k o w said...

You know GG had the chance to have something really damn good. She fucked it up and now clearly has seen the error in her ways.

But a rational person knows not to send 13 fucking messages in an hour.

I loved her at first, she sounded like a great bowl of cherrys. But now, now I'm definitely thinking she's got a screw loose.

Last party with the company? You should be slamming one of the staff by 12, even better... boff Dick's wife.

Cheerio

Zoozan said...

bah humbug - I had office parties

kimmyk said...

I can't say anymore than everyone else already has regarding Miss GG.
Sher's was quite a visual but probably true account of future events. *shudders*

Hope you meet a stranger at your party and get completely shit faced drunk and naked within hours of meeting.

K.D. Morgan said...

Enjoy the Christmas party and have a good weekend.

NewYorkMoments said...

Isn't it a general rule that you're not supposed to get drunk at the company xmas party?

k o w said...

Well your not supposed to get sloshed if your going to be working there next year.
He's not, which makes this evening a beautiful opportunity.

NML said...

The offer still stands about GG. Have a fab time tonight. I'm not back to work till the 12th so hopefully we can meet up x

nukie310 said...

I know the 5th isn't until Monday....So you're going to record it drunk? or with a hangover? I'm kidding take your time. I do have one question. I've never been stalked, Is there the least bit novelty in the idea that she is so obsessed about you?

yoursecret said...

Kinda hate to say it, but even as wonderful as WDKY seems to be, I don't think GG is obsessed because she knows what she is missing, but rather because she knows she has lost control of the situation.

I'd tell her that her harassment has put you off the idea of meeting with her and that you think it best there be no more contact of any form. You might also tell her that her behavior is making it difficult to retain any pleasant memories of your time with her. I don't think she'd want that to happen AND you'd have suggested that she can control that particular aspect. She just might stop being such a pest.

As far as the office party goes, since no one else has said it, PLEASE carry a condom or two!!

Have fun!

Caterpillar said...

I hope you have fun, WDKY! Only I was I was there with you :)

Caterpillar said...

Woops! I WISH I was there...

Annalis said...

Have fun at your xmas party. Good luck with the shag although the thought of shagging someone I work with makes me shudder.

GG is a desperate woman. Nuff said.

fjl said...

Hiya. Goin to bed late, been working hard writing all night, such a good girl- as ever ;-)
Re the text messages, GG is starting to remind me of a friend of ours here. I dunno, I take a different line to everyone else, I never give up on people when they're being preposterous. Not saying I'd like to wed Ozzy Ozbourne or something, but people always have their reasons. We once had a mate whose husband left her and she did all the stuff, even going to his doorstep and sleeping on the porch in her sleeping bag with a bottle of vodka. Next day there were policemen finding her in obscure positions in his wheelbarrow. Hilarious! At the end of the day though, her hubby had dumped her after 16 years for a bimbo, and do you want a woman prosecuted for that? of course not, so we'd simply go and get her when she went nuts, take her husband's wheelbarrow and take her home. I sincerely hope it doesn't come to that tho' !

Alexis said...

Hats off to yoursecret for her insightful comment on the situation. Poor GG isn't nuts, she's just trying (ineffectively) to regain control.

I've given 3 men (long past now) the "I want more ultimatum." Never have I actually GOTTEN more. I just recognized the flat response from these guys as the sign it was - confirmation that the relationship was never going to be what I wanted. At that point the right move is to move on. Text messaging would qualify as a WRONG move.

WDKY said...

Thank you for the comments, everyone - it's a bit late to respond to them all individually (thanks for the chuckle, though, KOW) but I would say this... 23 texts whilst I was at the party last night. I'll discuss further in my next post!

WDKY said...

PS That would be nice, NML... let's make a plan x

Mine is a Gin said...

Hope you're not suffering a hangover today!
And as to the 13 texts, well, it's probably all been said.
And to think I once worried that I was getting unhinged when I sent one late-night drunken text to someone - I clearly shouldn't fret so much!

nukie310 said...

23 texts?

Does she just write 1 word at a time?

Blueprincesa said...

Vodka, eh? That stuff makes me hurl. Has done ever since I drank too much of it as a teenager and had to go to the hospital, and the police called my mother to tell her and she said "Oh, I'm sorry, you must have the wrong number, That can't possibly be my daughter," but, to her horror, it was. Sigh.

Hope there are some cuties there for you. Be sure to let us know...

Blondie said...

23 texts??

Holy crap!

T... *shaking head* I dont' know what to say.
