  • The details of what went on include: Wine, cheese, beer and pizza being provided Someone drinking so much they threw up A karaoke machine being commandeered A "minor altercation" between two people - in other words, some sort of dust-up Staff leaving the building in the middle of the night after parties "Wine Time Friday" * Staff clubbing together to buy a fridge to store wine in at work In plenty of workplaces this sort of behaviour would be unconventional even during normal times.
