I am being forced to go for a company team-building thingy over the weekend. It wouldn’t be too bad, if it wasn’t in Malaysia at some cheap resort. I need to report at 6am on Saturday, sit in a bus for 2-3 hours before a day of boring corporate mumbo-jumbo and forced interaction. We all have to do a performance, like a dance or something. And they put us in rooms of 4. It’s bad enough that I have to share a room, some rooms have double beds, i.e. we have to share beds. And I am in a room with colleagues I have never met. People I wouldn’t recognise on the street. They better put me in a room with 2 single beds otherwise I am going to be even more grumpy than I already am.
Why isn’t this thing optional? Or why can’t they just have it here? Have they no regard what employees actually want. As an easily motion sick, high introverted individual, who hates socialising, this weekend is going to be challenging. On the plus side though I am bringing books, so maybe I will get some reading done.
