AN office worker has confirmed that being told this year’s Christmas party is cancelled is the best sentence to ever enter his ears.
Administrator Joseph Turner held back tears of joy during the Zoom call where his boss announced that the festive celebration would have to be cancelled due to Covid restrictions.
Turner said: “As far as sentences go, it doesn’t get any better than that. Don’t tell the missus but this is a million times better than her personalised wedding vows.
“Finally, I get to enjoy Christmas without having to make awkward small talk next to a printer decked out in tinsel, or feign gratitude for a rubbish Secret Santa present. This is every office worker’s dream, and now I’m living it.
“I recorded the call so that magical sentence is saved for posterity. I look forward to showing it to my grandkids one day, who will undoubtedly ask me with wide-eyed fascination if 2020 was the best year of my life.
“And I’ll scoop them all up in my arms and say ‘absolutely’. Then I’ll have fun telling them all about the horrifically boring office Christmas parties they’ll have to go to.”
