The fine or not so fine art of Bonding

These work "fun" things are the most irritating!!! I mean, its a good thing.. supposed to increase / improve the bonding amongst people...

For eg, we are having this TT competition at work... why TT???????????????? Because.. no one knows.. i am not interested in TT, i dont like it... why force me, i ask??? Why not scrabble, text twist or carom or Kho kho or something even more random.....But no its TT... everyone has to participate.. its compulsory... you dont even get to choose teams.. you are randomly assigned one..

Its good people are enthu, i have anything against them.. i just dont want to be a part of it... i am a non sporty person.. literally.. figuratively as well!!!!! :)

Even if one person in the team is enthu.. you are done for.. because they will rile you to get stuff done.. like get a picture taken.. or when you are in deep thought and you are almost about to get that word describing that particular trend that you are seeing on that slide.. basically when you know that an intelligent thought is coming your way.. someone comes and disturbs and asks you "when did the poster have to be sent" .. all you can think of is "huh??" and you can see that "intelligent" thought waving at you and flying away.... another one happened today.. this person came and asked me if i was voting.. i launched into this long explanation as to why i cant... only to be told.. not that... i am talking about this match thing... and i was again like.. "huh".. the reply to these questions/ comments is pretty much a constant..

The root problem is these things happen when i am overloaded with work.. or so i like to think ;)

And i was as non sporty in Bombay.. i tried to tell myself that i should participate in such activities.. .. forced myself to participate in collage making... but then....oh well...

I know how irritating office bonding sessions can be! It's b/c you're FORCED to bond...with people you have nothing in common with.

I totally agree on the "nothing in common with" bit!!!!

don't get me started on forced bonding. Reminds me of our Principal in high school who said, 'tomorrow is children's day. You will get a juice and there will be a fete AND you will have a good time'.
