For most of us, working in an office feels like a social experiment gone wrong. Only in the melting pot of an office environment would you find such an incomprehensible group of people together, and in an attempt to promote positive office culture, you’re required to buy each other presents for Christmas. If you have to go through the fun of an office Kris Kringle, Tipple’s here to assist in the gift-matching process.

We’ve put together a list of people every typical office tends to have, and yes, we have blatantly stereotyped here. If it makes you angry, you’re probably a ‘Nancy’ on the list below.

Johnny the Jock
Johnny the Jock thinks he is still the ‘cool dude’ from high school. Little does he know that in an office environment, his ability to ‘do three shoeys’ may be detrimental to his corporate success.

Negative Nancy
No one in the office has seen Nancy smile. It’s often debated around the water cooler if she even has teeth. Nancy is likely to congratulate people about their promotions, birthdays or babies with a back handed compliment like “congratulations about your pregnancy, everyone in the office was talking about the weight you’ve been putting on.”

Serious Sandra
Sandra takes her customer service role very seriously, and good on her. She has been in the same role for 23 years and has no patience for new starters because they always forget protocol 2.4.56. Serious Sandra doesn’t drink much, because coming into work three days after drinking is absolutely unacceptable. But when she does have a tipple, it’s likely to be a red wine.

Post-It Note Pete
Post-it Note Pete doesn’t like to talk, but boy is he great with the pen and keyboard. Left your lunch one day too long in the fridge? Post-it note. Had a laugh on the phone? Post-it note. Turned up the aircon? Post-it note.
Pete is likely to like Tequila, because it’s the only thing that will make him chill out.

Nosey Nick
Nosey Nick lives for the office goss, or just the office in general. It’s Nick’s head you see pop up when anyone goes, well, anywhere. Nick wants to know why you were five minutes late back from your break or what exactly your ‘personal day’ off was for. Nosey Nick also lets you know when Darren and Nancy came into the office 3.24 minutes apart.

Daggy Dad Darren
Daggy Dad Darren is everyone’s office favourite, although they would never admit it. Darren wears his pants just a little too high, but lucky he has such a trendy Rip Curl belt to show off! Just make sure not to book a meeting at 2.30 with Darren, as he’ll be sure to tell you that he can’t make it as it’s ‘time for the dentist’.

Your Guide to Hosting an Adult Sleepover For Your Friends

Who doesn’t feel nostalgic for childhood sometimes?

Childhood was a wonderful responsibility-free time when hanging out was mostly about spending time with your friends. What activity you did wasn’t as important. Well, sleepovers were the epitome of childhood, and as such, hosting one is the easiest way to get transported back into that pre-adult life before responsibilities and bills, careers, and such. But an adult sleepover can have alcohol too, so it’s actually heaps better. Here’s how you make it a great one!

Be careful about who you invite

It’s so so easy to get loose in the invitation phase and invite a few people who might change the mood you’re trying to set for the night. Perhaps your sleepover plans are at the top of your mind when you bump into an acquaintance at a cafe, and before you know it you blurt out “Wanna come?” and immediately wanna kick yourself in the shins.

Remember, you really don’t have to invite everyone, it’s not your 4th grade birthday party. Don’t be mean about it obvi, but it’s fine to only invite your closest friends.

Boring adult sleepover logistics


Make sure you’ve got enough sleeping space/food/booze for everyone invited. If you don’t, ask people to bring their own. We can also pop by with cold drinks if you’re running low!

Consider the mood you want to set

Ask yourself these two questions:
How do I want people to feel during the sleepover?
How do I want them to feel after the sleepover?

Let the answers to these two guide your choices and you’re a long way towards nailing an adult sleepover.

Make it a little magical

Adult sleepovers should feel a little like regressing back to childhood. Check your worries at the door and chill the fuck out. Changing up your place a little can help your friends do this heaps faster. How? Hang those fairy lights that 14-year-old you flipped out over, and drag your mattress into the living room. Cover it in blankets and pillows and make a blanket fort.

Plan some entertainment

Every friend group is different, and we’re not gonna pretend like we know yours. But what we do know is that everyone needs some entertainment. Whether that’s board games, karaoke, drinking games, face masks, dancing, chats, video games, or movies all night – that’s up to you. Just make sure you’ve got ample options available to keep everyone happy.

Plan super easy foods and drinks (and a TON of it!)

No one wants to be in the kitchen when fun’s being had in the living room. Easy does it, so stock up on frozen pizzas, entertainer spring rolls, garlic bread, and all the crisps and chocolate in the known universe.

For drinks, think premixers, wine and beer, or perhaps even a jumbo bowl of punch! Running low on alcohol is the bane of any adult sleepover, so be the Host With the Most and order top ups until 11pm!

No adult sleepover is complete without breakfast mimosas

Your gang awakes in the morning, either smooth skinned and glowy from a night of pampering, or bleary-eyed and headachey from one too many tequila shots, to a MIMOSA BREKKIE! Yep, it’s the best and not very expensive. Your mimosas can even be delivered cold to your door, so you don’t have to worry about fridge space.

Have fun

The best way you can make sure your guests have fun is to have fun yourself, and don’t get too frustrated if plans change or if people chat through the movie. Hey, listen, you’ll knock it out of the park.
