Being Citybroke is about perspective. It’s about seeing glitter in the gutter and a sense of humor when life is giving you everything you don’t exactly want and you’re hanging on for a dream that you sometimes can’t remember.
It’s not sales or survival - it’s an electronic letter from the trenches. It’s what suits who make $60K in at age 24 can’t even imagine. It’s Freedom. It’s Poverty. It’s Broken. It’s Beautiful.

Office Xmas Party Survival Tips

Now every company is different - so you are going have to use your skills to test "what is going to fly." Here are few little survival tips for newbies:
1) Sabotage - Know when it is occuring. Has someone been kindly filling your glass every 2 minutes? Is the chick who wanted your job asking you tricky questions in front of management? Solution: Eat some bread or run!
2) Wierdness - It happens. Suddenly Bob and Sherry from accounting seem to be talking about more than checks and balances. Dimwitted Carl and Tony think that their raised eyebrow references to "dance class" are totally below the radar. Solution: Eat some bread and run!
3) Beyond the buzz - It's hard being broke and being able to decline free fancy alcohol. (Tip - eat as much as you drink OR drink less!) When you start to feel like your boss is a good guy and your coworkers are actually pretty cool, just run. You are wasted.
