Okay, so I went on one of these team building things yesterday, in preparation for my new job.
This took the form of a treasure hunt round London - getting photographs of your team (complete with a nodding dog) next to various landmarks across the beloved capital.
This was actually quite fun, although with a great sense of timing, we did this on the hottest day of the year, just after all the schools had packed up for summer and the Tube was jammed.
I also got to witness the rather bizarre spectacle of my new manager somehow fitting their entire head inside a condom and then inflating it. The condom, not their head, I hasten to add…
Then in the pub (where else?) afterwards, I got chatting to some of the people, who only went on the same Macromedia seminars on Flash and ColdFusion that I did a few months ago, and we debated the pros and cons of Flash and Dreamweaver ad nauseum.
Judging by the blisters on my feet though, I think next time I want to get anywhere in London I’ll just take a cab.
