12 Classic Office Holiday Party Guests

GetVoIP has put together a visual that depicts these people, including:

  • Workaholic Wendy – the gal who still talks about work, even when you’re supposed to be off the clock.

  • Hasty Henrietta – the lady who evidently has somewhere much more important to be and check the clock every ten seconds.
  • And more!
