“Holiday parties and inappropriate questions go hand in hand. What is it with these events that people feel at liberty to bring up the most personal issues?” Where You Going in That? host Bridgette Reas asks Melissa Leonard. The etiquette guru’s explanation? Alcohol’s to blame! “People drink at parties,” says Melissa. “They feel loose, they feel happy. Plus, they feel like, we’re all friends here. So they’ll often ask, ‘Where are you working?’ Then they’ll say, ‘Oh, you’re still there? Well, ah, you’ve been there for seven years. Is there a promotion in your future?’ In those cases, where someone’s just being nosey, keep your response simple, like, ‘Oh, I love my job. I’m good at what I do. And I’m really happy there.’  Or if they ask, ‘So, when are you going to have kids?’ make it fun. Tell them: “If we decide to have kids, you’ll be the first to know. We’ll invite you to the baby shower!”
