It’s the time of year for good cheer, and one aspect of that cheer is the office Christmas party. Apparently, these parties are quite a popular time for workplace infidelity to occur.
I’m almost certain that the two biggest reasons for this are the presence of alcohol and the absence of the cheater’s spouse at the party.
I had no idea that holiday parties were such a hot bed for infidelity. But now that I think back on some of the school Christmas parties I’ve attended, there definitely were some flirtatious activities at most of them. Certainly the rumor mill was flying after each party.
Below are some statistics that were mentioned in a recent Examiner article that may surprise you.
Christmas Party and Workplace Infidelity Statistics
I think I read somewhere that workplace infidelity is the most common, and since so many affair partners are indeed also co-workers, it is imperative that the betrayed spouse accompany his/her mate to any work holiday parties.
As a betrayed spouse, it can be tough enough to deal with the emotional issues that this time of year brings. You don’t want to have to sit around worrying about what’s going on at the company Christmas party too. So either you go to the party too or your spouse doesn’t!
