In a recent poll, Monster.com asked visitors to its website what (if any) regrets they had regarding office holiday parties in the past. The most frequent response, at about one-third (31%) was “not showing up,” followed by “drinking too much” (20%), and “arriving late” (18%), writes Fortune’s Anne Fisher in her December 11 Ask Annie column.

Do you have any regrets about office holiday parties you’ve attended? And, if your company were to give you a holiday present, what would you want it to be?
