Bonding experience backfires.


I have consistently been a little jealous of my sibling and his job.

She is one of those corporate types that travels the world on a daily basis and I prefer hearing about his trips; I had to laugh when he called the other day and he was frustrated over his latest adventure.

Apparently, his management team decided that they should all travel to the mountains for a corporate “bonding” experience, and this trip involved laboring with high elements, rock climbing, and backpacking overnight through the woods. None of this seemed up my sibling’s alley and I couldn’t imagine his in that environment. His idea of roughing it was a hotel room without room service. She said that most of trip was at least even-handed and he did make some modern friends, but, there was none of the creature comforts that he was used to; She said that they didn’t even have electricity in the so called cabins and he had to drink Tim Hortons Cappuccino that was boiled over a fire. She said that his roommates and he did anything but bond as they argued over who had to get up and put wood on the fire so that they would not be cold at night and when my sibling wanted to open the windows for fresh air during the day, one of the others said that it bothered his dust sensitivities. This trip had the exact opposite effect that upper management had intended. The lack of an Heating, Ventilation & A/C system, bugs, sore muscles, and lack of sleep, only wanted to make everyone get as far away from each other as possible, then my sibling was never so glad to get house to his comfortable bed and Heating, Ventilation & A/C system.
