Office Rebel's Happy Hour Boycott: A Tale of Power, Pints, and HR Politics 🍻🚫📚

In a world where office politics can be as potent as the drinks at happy hour, one employee has decided to abstain from both. The Office Rebel, as we'll call him, has a strict rule: no socializing with HR, especially not over drinks. 🍺🚫 His reasoning? HR holds a position of power and their primary role is to protect the company, not the employees. Despite being labeled 'snobbish' and 'douchey', he stands by his stance, sparking a heated debate among his colleagues. Some agree, others warn him of creating a 'hostile' environment. But the Office Rebel remains unswayed. After all, who said office life was devoid of drama? Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation... 🍿🎭
