Disclaimer: I am NOT your HR lady. If I were, I would not condone this type of behavior. Anything you might do that isn’t related to your real job may or may not be held against you. Luckily, I’m a blogger who is just having a little bit of pre-holiday fun with you. Proceed at your own risk. If you get caught, I know nothing.
