Lill: I’m taking a mental health day.
Jill: *Raises eyebrow* But it’s not Tuesday.
Lill: *Sigh* I know – I had to attend a team building workshop yesterday and I’m exhausted from the forced extroversion and socialization.
Jill: That bad eh?
Lill: *Shudder* Ugh, ‘Sharing, Innovation and Collaboration’ were the workshop themes…it’s no wonder I’m suffering from a mental yeast infection today.
Jill: Well I’m glad you participated – I’m sure your manager was pleased.
Lill: Hmm…doubtful – the workshop wasn’t catered so I had to smuggle in my own vodka at lunch, and while I got full marks for innovation I failed to meet my share target. They’re making me do another session next month.
Jill: I guess there’s a lesson in all of this.
Lill: Yeah, never underestimate the strategic advantages of pre-drinking.
