20 Holiday Survival Guide by Micah #s 11-15

BY Nancy G. Janiola IN 17 comments

Just to keep you on track, see #s 1-5 link here and #s 6-10 here.


You organized a party and more people showed up than you had expected. There's not enough food for everyone.
Feel Good: Relax and remember that there's such a thing as pizza delivery. If you don't have enough cash on you, take a few close friends aside and ask if they can help you pay in the mean time.

You prepared and exchange gift, but you forgot to bring it to the party.
Do Good: If lots will be drawn at the party, take the host aside and tell him or her to take you off the list. If it's a Secret Santa, just approach the receiver and apologize for forgetting your present. Make sure you give it to him as soon as you can!

You were underdressed or overdressed for a party.
Look Good: You can usually tell by the venue if you need to dress up for an affair. If you're not sure, carry something that can quickly upgrade your look, like makeup or a dressy shawl. But if you're caught off guard, just apologize to the host for the oversight. There's not much else you can do, so let it go and enjoy yourself.

You're forced to meet and hang out with people you don't really know or like.
Feel Good: You're definitely not alone in this. Think of it as an opportunity to learn something new. Who knows? You might meet someone interesting, or you just might discover that you and your annoying cousin actually have lots in common.

You lost your wallet or got pick-pocketed while shopping.
Do Good: Prevent this by securing your valuables and minding your belongings at all times -- remember, shopping areas will be much more crowded and thieves will be on the prowl. If it has already happened, don't forget to cancel your ATM and credit cards right away. Report the loss to mall security in case someone returns it.

Five more... stay tuned!

I hate it when I ran out of food during party so i always make sure to cook more than the expected attendees or better yet a pot luck is a better alternative.

I like that snatcher alert too.
