Next week it’s our annual work jolly. I work for a publishing company and every spring we take a few hundred teachers to a posh all inclusive hotel in a resort. In the day time there’s some seminars and the rest of the time is “Free”, but we are expected to mingle and socialise. I’m dreading it. It’s from Thursday till Sunday and I have to share a room, am expected to eat all meals with others and basically just be around people all the time. I live on my own and like my own space. Just wondering if anyone has any advice to stop me from having a meltdown? I’m already stressed and exhausted. Barely been at home in weeks due to work. How much am I going to get away with sneaking off to be alone? Or perhaps I should hit the all inclusive bar to make me more willing to be sociable?
