“What I don’t like about office Christmas parties is looking for a job the next day”

American stand-up comedian Phyllis Diller said:

“What I don’t like about office Christmas parties is looking for a job the next day.”

It’s not known when Diller first said this, but she was credited in the newsgroup alt.quotations on December 4, 1998. The joke has been included in many Christmas quotation collections.


Wikipedia: Phyllis Diller
Phyllis Ada Driver (July 17, 1917 – August 20, 2012), better known as Phyllis Diller, was an American stand-up comedian, actress and voice artist, best known for her eccentric stage persona, her self-deprecating humor, her wild hair and clothes, and her exaggerated, cackling laugh.

Diller was a groundbreaking stand-up comic—one of the first female comics to become a household name in the U.S.
