Okay, this is ridiculous

Thursday, January 31, 2013

Those of you that have been my emoticon 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.

    Oh, yes... I remember HER... Well, she is infamous even across the pond! LOL

Don't be dragged in this kind of pettiness, and don't let her spoil the fun for you, or stress you out.

    OMG Diane - what an overgrown baby! How completely childish of her to FIRST be eavsdropping on your conversation and then second to make ASSUMPTIONS about comments you are making. You are right, totally ridiculous.

Just get with your team and do what you KNOW you can do best - motivate and work hard.
