If an HR manager is not very talkative, and she turns down having “shots” with a few employees during an event in the office, is she snobby?
Or is she just doing her job — not crossing boundaries with employees, i.e. getting personal.

She's under no obligation to drink with the staffers and very well may be maintaining a professional distance to avoid awkwardness should she ever have to fire one of you.

She could be doing her job, or she might not be able to do shots because of health issues. She is not being a snob.

So, the question is basically, read somebody's mind....? Nobody can do that.

Highly inappropriate to have alcohol in the work place at any event where employees are attending.......... sounds like a sensible person who knows how inappropriate it is

First, never force alcohol on anybody. Second, she may be the person who has to end your employment some day and escort you out of the building so she doesn't want to be friends with you. Third, doing shots at work in the office subjects the company to tremendous liability if someone gets buzzed and has an accident on the way home. I'm talking multi-million dollar lawsuits.

She is just doing her job — not crossing boundaries with employees. Also no good could come of an HR manager "doing shots" with employees.

She's doing her job. And probably looking for a new one, since an office culture where people do shots at the office is a legal nightmare and lawsuit waiting to happen.

Probably the latter . And , maybe "doing shots" isn't her idea of a good time.

That is exactly what boundaries are supposed to be for. It's not snobby, it's smart.
