If I bring my personal laptop to my company's year end party, will it make me an outsider? Also, I will need to ask the hotel staff for WiFi. I'm not seeking attention, I have some personal documents to prepare and I'm seriously busy.
I'm sure that nobody else will bring laptops there but seriously I need to. It's not against the company policy.
Any idea on this one, will that hit the threshold of being an outsider? This is clearly something which is not against company policy but company-culture (non officially defined) will may overlap this.
