Session 20 Company Dinner It’s seven o’clock, we should start to get ready. You seem keen on attending the dinner party. It’s a company dinner, I thought you’d be dreading it. There is a possible promotion coming up. I think it will be good to let the management see me in a social setting. It’s a great opportunity. Wouldn’t they be more interested in your skills in the office? It seems unlikely that a dinner party is going to help them make a decision. It can’t hurt my chances though. The management’s are quite a social group. They are always planning company functions, paintballing bowling and various activities. But you never bothered with those sort of things before. I know. It is going to be strange attending one of these events but I think it is something that I have to do if I want a shot at that promotion. I guess so. What time do we have to be there? The dinner starts at 10:00 p.m. Okay, well it’s Saturday so I think that buses are going to be full of drunken students on their way into town. Do you want to order a taxi? Good idea. It’s going to be busy and it’s ten miles away so I’ll order the taxi for 9:15.
