My dad's boss holds a "Christmas party" every December, usually at this tiny Chinese Buffet. Usually when my mom and I join him, we end up sitting by ourselves with no one talking to us. Last year, even though I joined my parents, Dad threw a fit at the idea of me going and kept insisting that the party was "couples only," so I ate dinner there by myself and went to Borders for the time being. Turns out a couple of his coworkers brought their kids with them. My mother refused to talk to my dad for the rest of the night.
What's the worst Christmas party you've ever been to?
