I’ll be honest…working in the warehouse isn’t all fun and games. At times, keeping up the rapid pace in order to stay on schedule is frustrating. Tempers can be “stretched.” Don’t get me wrong — our team is like family to me…but you know how families can sometimes be.
Sometimes we just need to loosen up, break the tension with levity. Of course, if we can get out some aggression, all the better!
I recall one instance in particular:
It was a super hot, busy day. Packages were flying out and adreneline was flying high. Suddenly it occured to me that it might be a good ¬†idea to grab a sword-like piece of foam and bop Alex over the head. Stunned, he wheeled around in search of a) the culprit and b) a foam weapon of his own. Needless to say this was contagious….and more than enough provocation. Next thing I knew the entire team was in downright combat!
In the warhouse (err, warehouse) there’s never a dull moment. I , for one, can’t WAIT for a rematch.
Look out, guys.
