I find it interesting that the fear of an embarrassing photo is more motivation than a whole bunch of other things - morals, good judgement, to name a few. I never understood why people went so crazy at these things anyway - just because it's 'free booze'? To me, they are co-workers and I'm still at work, so my work self will be at the function. I'm not going to get all drunk and confess my true opinions on the boss or his/her spouse.
I guess some people feel hard done by their employer and want to get the most out of them. At one work lunch my boss at them time told me that I should order the salad, most expensive entree and dessert because the company was paying. I just wanted the chicken, I didn't need the lobster. He ordered as much as he could.
Is your motivation not to get drunk at a work function based on
a fear of a bad photo, or something else?
