So I’m on the verge of starting up a major conflict at work.
- Team 1—Myself and three coworkers (past and present)
- Team 2—Pretty much the entire management team
With two weeks left to go at TD Canada Trust #64, Mr. Palmer is in the midst of trying to organize a going-away (or gone-away in this case, I suppose) party for someone who had left the branch a few weeks prior.
So originally I and a few friends were organizing this party, trying to get a date established, gift taken care of, people to come, yadda yadda yadda. All was going fine and well, until one of the managers piped up, saying that it was unfair to have this party, and not include the other dude who had left the branch around the same time. I saw their point, but as we were already planning the party not only as dude’s coworkers but also as his friends, I wasn’t going to sit down and just take this.
So, after sending out a very politically correct, but at the same time, scathing email, I think we’ve reached the consensus that we’ll need to have two separate parties in order to appease everyone. But it shows that not everyone’s willing to take things lying down at the branch, which I think is a step in the right direction.
