My office mates here plan to go out tonight after work, to unwind and sip a cold beer while eating pork sisig and having a chit chat with them. We used to do that year ago but it was stopped when our Project Director prohibit us from doing such bonding practice after work. Asked me the reason, Yes I know why but I'd rather keep my lips sealed.haha.
Anyway, we are all aware what happens when a group go out for a drink. Issues at work will obviously be brought up during the session , that's for sure. And sometimes the groups grievances also explodes when alcohol mixed in ones blood The following day at the workplace, If one from the group looks each other they already understand the message, no need to say a word its like having our own sign language.
That is why our boss becomes paranoid when he finds out behind his back that the groups go out. He even questioned his team one by one to fish out information. Boss here loves to read their people by asking their staff some " process questions" they always refer. So if your not that smart to answer their question, your loyalty is in doubt. So better yet keep your lips close. Don't talk unless your asked and don't discuss about the night out when the boss are around. This way your avoiding trouble.
