Those of you that have been my
for the past few years know that my company does a Biggest Loser-type contest. Usually the teams are made up of 4 people. I didn't join last year but in years past, we have had this one woman on the team who has more excuses then you can imagine. Excuses why she couldn't lose, excuses for gaining weight, etc.
Well this year, the teams are 2 people (because last year there were complaints that one team member dragged down the whole team). I wasn't going to join the challenge but decided to at the last moment. I was talking with 2 women in my group that are a team and they were saying that maybe they would allow me to be on their team. I said I will motivate you and not quit.
Here's the ridiculous part: The troublesome teammate from years past overheard us and turned my statement (about me) to be all about her. Got all ticked off and ran and told 2 coworkers. Is this ridiculous or what?
I feel like I work in a kindergarten.
