Another person in full agreement. Being forced to socialise is a cause of stress.

One of the things I am really really looking forward to in retirement is not having to go to office Christmas parties, client events etc etc etc. I'll keep my socialising on a small scale and with people I choose to interact with and/or events that interest me.

Budgeting is a skill practised by people who are bad at politics.
