Your Two Cents: Do You Invite Co-Workers to Your Parties?

Including co-workers and your boss in your wedding day can be a sensitive subject. Inviting friends you've made at work who also serve as friends outside of the workplace seems like the right choice, but it can still be dicey and cause hurt feelings. On this week's The Office, the entire branch road trips to Niagara Falls to attend Pam and Jim's nuptials. It's sweet and fitting, considering the crew has watched the lovebirds go from co-workers to an expectant couple, but plenty of awkward scenes ensue (including a particularly uncomfortable scene when boss Michael Scott riffs about safe sex at the rehearsal dinner).

Do your office mates make your party guest lists, or do you keep your personal and professional party lives completely separate?

Not often. My coworkers and my friends are usually very different types.

I only spend personal time with co-workers that I get along with.

It depends. I work with all women and we all pretty much get along, so every so often we have a little get-together where we drink a little and hang out and watch the Packer game or something. I don't think I'd ever invite any of my coworkers to any parties where my family would be there, though...that'd be weird.
